Synopsis: In the latest edition of The Raptors Reasonablists Podcast, Eric Koreen and I discuss the latest NBA-COVID updates and bring on Ethan Strauss to discuss his Warriors book and the Raptors-relevant takeaways.
Blake and Eric discuss the reaction to the latest episode of The Last Dance, including Serge Ibaka’s request to be excused for Paris Fashion Week, and Nick Nurse’s connection to Phil Jackson. The guys discuss the NBA targeting early May to allow limited workouts and the opening of individual practice facilities and Canadian early-entry candidates for the 2020 Draft, before welcoming Ethan Sherwood Strauss from The Athletic to chat about his new book, The Victory Machine: The Making and Unmaking of the Warriors Dynasty. Ethan gets into some of the parallels between the Raptors and Warriors, Nick Nurse’s willingness to experiment and which coach it reminds him of, and his thoughts on Draymond Green’s comments about Kevin Durant’s injury in the 2019 NBA Finals.
