I take a look back at the last 7 days where the Raptors went 2-1, explore the 2 PG rotation, try to find out where Jonas Valanciunas is, look at life after Rudy Gay, and examine the playoff picture.
The trade is analyzed from a SAC and TOR perspective, Ujiri's strategy is evaluated and the week that was and is ahead is examined.
Well, it's hard not to talk about GSW! We look past it to larger issues and opportunities, identify a statistic that the Raptors are surprisingly poor at and need to get better, glaze over the AP Top 10, frame Ujiri and Casey's situations in the current context, and talk about the Dalai Lama.
The week is reviewed and another is previewed, as we ask the question of whether the Raptors can win the Atlantic and how high our hopes should be. There's John Wall talk, some statistic tidbits, and a pinch of Grantland as the worldwide roundtable returns for another week.
We try to find a team in a different sport to follow as a model, and in addition to that, there's PLENTY of topics of discussion and debate.
This week on The Doctor is In with Phdsteve, we explore the options for the Raptors in the upcoming draft…oh wait- the team does not own a pick and GM Masai Ujiri has fired all his scouts. Not to worry, I’ve assembled the worldwide roundtable!
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. Then...well...it gets a little bit more intense.
