Synopsis: In the latest edition of The Raptors Reasonablists Podcast, Eric Koreen and I try to debrief and recalibrate all things Raptors after the news of the NBA’s COVID-19 related hiatus.
Blake and Eric regroup and recap a wild week following the NBA’s postponement of games, update what’s going on around the Raptors after the team was tested to COVID-19, and discuss how some of the Raptors players are filling the time while in self-isolation. With the NBA shut down, the guys lament the possibility of the Raptors chance to repeat being cut short, how it could affect Fred VanVleet’s market value with next year’s salary cap uncertain, and compare Pascal Siakam to Jayson Tatum in the conversation for best player in the Atlantic division. Plus, TV show recommendations for listeners in self-isolation, and much more.
