Synopsis: I joined the latest edition of the Raptors Republic Weekly Podcast, talking about Dwane Casey’s status as a lame duck head coach, James Johnson’s playing time, and more.
Blake and Will diagnose Terrence Ross’ struggles, Bebe Nogueira’s talents, and potential changes to the starting lineup.
Before we go on, we’re still looking for suggestions to title the podcast. Give us something with the word “Raptors” in it, and if we use it, we’ll give you a shoutout on the next pod. Thanks!
