(04:37) – Rest rules. Is resting a real issue, or is the NBA creating a problem that’s putting them on the wrong side of history?

(20:14) – Apparently Jamal Murray can’t take the Larry O’Brien trophy to Kitchener, his hometown. It got us thinking… what would we do if we got to take the Larry O’B to our own hometowns?

(30:50) – With Fred all but long gone, what is the leadership dynamic gonna be like this season for the Raptors?

(42:48) – It seems like the OG/Pascal trade rumours are going to be persistent this season. How much should the front office factor in losing Fred for nothing to signing or not signing their big UFA’s coming up?
