Rapcast #160: NBA Finals, Seeing Ujiri To Believe Ujiri

2 mins read

This week on The Dr is In with PhDSteve, I begin by looking at the first two games of the NBA finals and offer some thoughts on the highs and lows for the Heat as they seek to repeat against four-time champs the San Antonio Spurs. I like what the Spurs have done to date but I’m sticking with my original pick of the Heat in 5.

Then…well…it gets a little bit more intense. After coming under attack last week for speaking out against the motivation behind the Ujiri hire- I offer several more reasons why I’m still not sold- beginning with the words of Leiweke and Ujiri themselves. I can’t help it but with each passing day I’m less impressed with the current state of the Raptors (editor’s note: when I recorded this pod on Sunday night the news had not yet broke about the Raps next asst GM- I’ll speak to it directly next week but for my immediate impression visit me on twitter @therealphdsteve).

Full disclosure- I wish I could be as optimistic about Ujiri as many of you, and I too want him to be successful, but as I explain in the podcast- I need to see it to believe it and even withe new asst gm hire I have yet to see anything I can get behind. From talking publicly about tanking to not making a pitch for Karl, I’m still waiting for something to believe in.

Its all the nonsense you’ve come to expect from me, with a touch of truth and analysis.

And now you know and knowing is half the battle.
