Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic Toronto, I opened up the mailbag to answer questions about the Raptors’ rotation, willingness to trade, and more.
Coming off of a championship season, you don’t want to change too much. Identity and consistency are important. Still, stagnancy is death. Get busy living or get busy dying.
In the spirit of that thinking, we’re changing up my usual mailbag format a little bit this year. For the last four-plus seasons, I’ve solicited questions via Twitter and answered every question in what were often monstrous mailbags. We want to get a little leaner this season, and so we’ll take question submissions through our internal system now. I also won’t be answering every question, instead trying to pick out a few that came up more often or I thought I had particular insight on. (I also merged some that were similar in tone.) The hope is that it makes these a little more efficient, which will allow me to do them a bit more often (along with our occasional Q&A’s).
With that housekeeping aside, let’s get it.
