Fan Duel Toronto Raptors

Buckets & Tea NBA Show – DeMar, The Docks, and Dad Jokes

Cathryn sits down with her Pick Up WNBA Show cohost Freddie Rivas to talk DeMar, the MVP race, and more.

Today, host Cathryn Naiker has special guest, comedian and podcaster Freddie Rivas (Confederacy of Dunks, The Pick Up WNBA Show w/ Cathryn) on to discuss:

  • DeMar DeRozan’s phenomenal season with the Chicago Bulls, his steady improvement throughout his career, his recent record-breaking string of performances, and whether he was underappreciated during his Raptors tenure.
  • This season’s packed MVP race, where DeRozan fits in, and who the favourites should be.
  • The extended fallout from the Harden-Simmons blockbuster: Ben Simmons’ uncertain playing status, whether skepticism and speculation about his mental health is warranted, and how James Harden and Joel Embiid will fit together in Philadelphia.

In our Raptors Homer Moment, we discuss the selection of Jarrett Allen to the All-Star Game over Pascal Siakam, whether Siakam was robbed of a spot, why the Raptors’ 2020-21 season was the Wire Season 2 of Toronto sports, and what the team needs to work on during the All-Star break.

Finally, in our Hot Girl Summer Nick Nurse Highlight of the Week, we see Nick get tech-savvy as he touts the Noah Basketball shooting technology on Instagram.
