Synopsis: In the latest edition of The Raptors Reasonablists Podcast, Eric Koreen and I discuss the Raptors’ 4-1 start, Kyle Lowry’s workload, Pascal Siakam’s usage, and more.
Blake and Eric preview a quiet week for the Raptors and recap a violent one in the NBA, with some reaction to the Joel Embiid vs. Karl-Anthony Towns incident, as well as the Raptors defensive play leading a strong start to the season. The guys discuss Nick Nurse’s high usage of Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet and over-reliance on the top seven, as well as concerns about Marc Gasol’s play. Plus, early signs of growth in Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby taking on expanded roles, and a lookahead to how the Bucks will deploy Giannis Antetokounmpo against the Raptors new offence.
