"MIDSEASON ROUND TABLE"
TORONTO RAPTORS talk
Weekly Toronto Raptors Talk!
As we reach the halfway point of the season, the Raptors currently hold the best winning record in the NBA at 29-12. We’ve seen the growth of Pascal Siakam, who many are claiming to be the sure-fire nominee for the Most Improved Player of the Year; we’ve seen the impact a player that Kawhi Leonard can have on a team that has otherwise coasted on repeat; we’ve seen how crucial and valuable resting can be for certain key players on the team can be (Serge and Kawhi, for instance); and we’ve seen how successful this team can be if they are running on all cylinders.
However, we’ve also seen how negatively impactful injuries can be and how it can mess with the team’s chemistry. Injuries to Kyle Lowry and Jonas Valanciunas have made the Raptors a bit more vulnerable and, at times, exposed to the competition. Is a trade on the horizon to mitigate these issues? How long can the Raptors go with such key players on the shelf?
To discuss these and other topics, we have our annual Midseason ROUND TABLE! Host Adam Corsair is joined by a familiar crew of Demar Grant of Tip of the Tower, Jordan Kligman of the 416 Basketball Podcast & Hash Tag Basketball, and Connor Chambers of Toronto Sports Views to revisit their respective preseason predictions and to review the half season that was. We get into detail as to what has encouraged us, what has us concerned, where we think the team is heading, and we revisit our win total predictions.
It’s a Raptors podcast that you won’t want to miss!
