"toronto raptors" Discussed on The Showtime Podcast with Lakers Legend Coop

"You know what? I say this all the time. I could not be in a better situation than I am in right now. To be able to learn what it takes to get there. I could be ten years away or 20 years away from that role. I genuinely don't know. But the most exciting part of it is that I'm in no rush to get there because I'm learning, I'm pulling from messiah. I'm pulling from Bobby Webster who, in my opinion, is one of the most. Is one of the smartest youngest up and coming GMs in the NBA. I'm pulling from Dan tolls men who again, in my opinion, is an unbelievable town evaluator and other people in our organization like Shelby weaver Isaac blacks would win keep boyarsky. Our organization is this is full of smart people who I pull from and can learn from. And that's why I think one day I could be very, very well be a president of basketball operations because I'm getting a chance to learn from all these people. You know what? The fun part about what you just said is that when we were playing in the 80s, you know, you had Pat Riley chick hern Jerry West, doctor buss, elder Baylor, people that was coming around, the one thing that I'm hearing about the Toronto Raptors organization, you got a lot of basketball minds around. And people don't understand how valuable that is because people that know basketball know what they're looking at, know what they're seeing and can help make better informed decisions about player personnel moves and things that are going on. And then you hire a coach like Nick nurse that's open to suggesting and positive comments from people like that. Make for a good starting ground. A 100% and I think the biggest thing about our group and it starts at the top is we've pushed this idea of diversity in our thought. You know, and if you look at our organization, we have the most women in our I believe, we have the most women in our organization in different areas. We have women in our medical staff. We have women in our front office scouting staff. We have probably one of the best leaders in the NBA and Theresa rash, who's our vice president of basketball operations. Shelby weaver is our director of basketball operations on our front office who has a hand in scouting in making sure that our player development program is firing on all cylinders. So it's that diversity of thought that I think makes us really successful. Alien tell us a little bit about the Wayne embry foundation. Yeah, so the way in embry is now called the Wayne and Teresa embry fellowship. And you know, I mean, that really kicked off my career. So it's an opportunity for two Canadians a year, and one of those candidates have to be someone who comes from a marginalized or racialized group. It's an opportunity for two candidates to join the Toronto Raptors organization in an area of focus for them. So whether that's coaching front office, medical, whatever their area of focus is, but then also get an opportunity to rotate through the different areas of the organization..

Okay, well, let's start this party by saying, did you ever have aspirin? The first of all, let's go with this thing. Where are you from originally? I'm originally from Toronto, born and raised. Born and raised a Canadian. Yeah. Do you care to make believe when you were a little? I didn't, I did not, but when I was little, I actually it's funny, I always, I always wished I was from LA until I hit like 15 or 13 or 14 fell in love with the raptors and then since then I was probably going to be here in LA now. Did you ever play basketball? Let's start that way. You know the answer to this question. I'm like 5, 7, 5, 8 on a good day. Okay. I don't have the pop like that. I don't have a verticality like that, but. I played, I played a ton when I was younger.

And the feedback I got was listen, man, you might not be big enough for this. Hey, listen, you guys, nicknamed scampi. Sorry? Was your college nickname stampede? No, I only got one nickname. That's Alina dream, and that's from you. No, no, you said you wrote the Calgary. Calorie stampede. It's a bad joke, coop. Hey, we have lost touch with reality of this particular episode because we have a lean to dream. A young man that I got to know when my days got coaching on the Atlanta dream. So when you first started down there, did you have aspirations or want to end up where you are today, a scout for the Toronto Raptors? Yeah, and coop, I think, you know, we talked about this a ton. I remember even before Atlanta, my aspirations was to always come home and work for this team..

"But another guy who i really wanna talk about. That has been kind of divisive especially. Because i personally i don't i wouldn't say i don't care about contracts but i just don't really care to talk about them that much because we've seen you know every time we talk about a contract. As a movable. The dude gets moved within six months. So i'm not really kind of whatever it's true. A lot of people have gone on and so that gary trend junior overpaid. I don't i think trump junior is fine and you can't really afford to let him go after how that deal went last year. So let's just about. Gary trend does the player Where are you at with him. Obviously he really struggled when he was in toronto. But also just a wonky situation from thrown into but i mean what are you hoping to see from him this year and where you out with him right now. I'm yeah i'm actually a fan of gary. Trent i'm not looking too much into the last of couple weeks of the season. Where he he had some issues on defense. I think that the roster was just looking kind of wonky at a time and it's tough to expect him to produce in place so much so out of his comfort zone but when the team was intact He's been fantastic like when he first got traded to the rockers of he was breaking records like every other game it seems He showed he showed a lot of potential as catching shooter. Which i think is exactly what players like. Oh gee pasquale need are the roster and what scotty will need his wealth op. So i think with the raptors paid him. He's a young guy who's shown he has a documented history of showing these flashes as a As a score as shooter so there are kind of betting on his next couple of years and having his contract looked like a bargain in the next couple years which. I don't think it's outrageous. I don't think they paid an insane amount of money yet. It was generous compared to the fact that he has little playoff experience. And he's a younger guy but I think i think it made sense. Like i wasn't shocked by it. And i do believe in his potential. I think the issue has been a seeing him. Play so far out of his comfort zone with the The shakeup in the roster especially when everyone was kind of being held out an injured towards the last couple of months or last month of the season you know definitely..

How're you doing today. I thanks for having me always down to talk raptors. So i know yeah it's kind of funny. I have like a slight in with the rafters. Twitter and away. So i've been. I've gotten much more exposed to the various. Ooh awards that happened throughout during the week yesterday was certainly a day but it was also a day that ended in why they should have been super surprise. But that. don't make the playoffs. The aussie just law. It's this even though it's been like the shortest office and we've had a couple of years. Yeah it was like the longest one in some ways but yeah actually so really. Funny aside i have to ask. When did you come up with your twitter handle name. Because i follow you before. I even knew dishes and dimes and like started listening to pod. Because you have. I think one of the best handles on twitter. It's carmelo drama. Did you come up with that. Because i think it's fantastic. It always gets me whenever i see it. I honestly don't remember. I wish i had a cool origin story for them. But i literally i think i thought it was bad flow related and dramatic so but yeah it worked out it worked out. Yeah definitely well. It is fantastic. So we're obviously here talking about the raptors there one of the teams that i come into this year and just looking around the entire leading trying to analyze it. I have the most questions and have so much like when. I'm picturing in my head what they do next year. The variability is kind of insane to me to some looking where they could finish anywhere in the east especially considering how much more competitive that uses this year. I guess the first thing i would ask you is just. How do you feel coming into this year..

"It's it's interesting you you mentioned earlier how it's almost like raptors fans already said their goodbyes. They saw this coming. It should have maybe should have happened earlier but now there were here. What can you tell me about what this means. For the franchise moving forward. I think this is a clear kind of signal that the raptors are moving towards a rebuilding period. And i think when you look at the twenty thousand championship team. There's only a few players that are left from there. You know you think about the last time. The raptors played in toronto which was in february. Twenty twenty you know since then we've said goodbye to call our we. We said goodbye. To norman powell. We said goodbye to surgery. Baca and market seoul. This is a clear signal that you know. One era of raptors basketball has ended. And you know what this next era will be Remains to be seen you know. The raptors have a handful of exciting young players. You know the recent first round draft. Pick scotty barnes. They've obviously got fred. They've got pascal. Siachen ogen and obi but after that the the roster is full of question marks. So it's gonna be interesting to see what this team does. It might take a year or two to replenish the roster but then again you know under under masai jury the raptors have always had something up their sleeves. They've always come up with a few surprising things. So who knows. Maybe i'm talking to you in two weeks about the raptors trading for damian lillard. Who knows something like that. It's it's funny because it's like you're expecting maybe like growing pains a couple of years or maybe it'll just find a way to retool on the fly and be remain competitive in that in that eastern conference Sticking with lowry as far as his career and his legacy. What does that mean. he's thirty. I think i believe he's thirty. Five years old moving to miami at this stage of his career. What does it mean for him in. What do you expect you know. I i think kyle brealey wants to win a second championship. I think he's already established himself enough in terms of all star appearances the nba championship in two thousand. Nineteen as a hall of fame player when he retires. But you know. I think he knows very well that a second championship will alter him into kind of this next year. You know when you're talking about all time point guards and he's going to a situation in miami where they're going to have a contending team you know. They were also just in the finals two seasons ago. And you know they've got jimmy butler and they've got a really talented young center in bam a bio and you know calories one of those players like we talked about you. Put them on the floor with any players and he's going to raise the ceiling of that team and he's going to do exactly that in miami i'll just ask you straight up. Is kyle the greatest raptor of all time. Yeah you know that's a clear answer you know. It's a yes for me. You know. I think vince carter. Is the name that comes up a lot and you know i. I grew up watching vince. Carter and i understand the impact. That vince carter not only had to the team but just to basketball. But when you look at you know the longevity and just the amount he has contributed and built this franchise and sent it to a completely other level than than you know anyone can ever remember. 'cause i'm sure a lot of people listening remember when the raptors were just a footnote and an afterthought here in toronto and they're not that any longer so it's clear that colleagues the greatest of all time in an all out of fans have anointed him that they've rightly done that to me. It's almost like a check of if you're a real raptors fan. You know if you think. I'll isn't the greatest of all time. Then then i need to know how much raptors basketball you've watched. It's funny you say that. Because i grew up a huge vince carter fan. He's the reason why started watching basketball But i was just having this conversation with my brother and he was like vince was huge. But kyle lowry one. That's that's that's. That's the big difference. Because kyle lowry completed his story in toronto. Right like how lowery didn't just come here and you know had some great years and left. He came here. He grew into an all star player and most importantly like you said he won a championship for sure for sure well a great career and end of an era for raptors basketball.

"Get your podcasts. On evening in early december twenty eighteen the young. Ceo of a crypto currency exchange reportedly dies while on his honeymoon in. India is death is not announced to customers for another month and when they're told gerald cotton is the only person to all the passwords to their funds. Conspiracy theories grow leaving. Some to wonder could gerald cotton and still alive honeymoon. Moving body all the missing money and it was like but what happened. A death in crypto land available now on. Cbc listen and everywhere. You get your podcasts. You mentioned lowery's leadership And one thing that comes to mind for me. Is that moment at the end of game. Six when the raptors clinch the championship and that confrontation between messiah jury and the security guard. And what happened after a with. Kyle lowry can you. Can you kind of walk me through that moment. Yeah you know as as a clock winding down in the raptors were about to clinch their first championship massage. Trying to get on the court and you know. One of the security officers in oakland at oracle arena Basically got into a physical confrontation with masai and you know shoved him a few times. Even though messiah was trying to show his credential to get on the court and you know this was obviously a very disappointing moment And and really to be honest devastating because this was like the height of massages career. You know having just built this championship team watches team when it all annual cal. Cal really had no idea what was going on obviously right at that moment but he saw assign he grabbed them. And they embraced. It's a very iconic and memorable moment from that night because when you think about the relationship between column asai you know to to put it nicely. It's been up and down. You know over the nine years that he's been here in toronto. You know when coffers got here you know. Masai sat down with colin challenged him and told him you know. Do you wanna be journeyman point guard. Who gets traded four or five times in your career or do you want to become an all star and you know there's also a lot of hard feelings. After masai traded cows best friend damore derosa was very open. This summer about feeling betrayed. You feel betrayed. Felt betrayed because he felt betrayed it. Because that's my guys my best friend. So yeah i felt some type of way you know Colin messiah famously. Didn't talk to each other for several months probably longer than that. And that was during the championship season. There was a lot of kind of uncertainty intention in the air to start and for all to culminate and end with a championship and for them to kinda share that that embrace on the court You know. I think it was just such a great moment and really showed the growth and the evolution of of their relationship over the nine years. Yeah and one thing about larry that stands out off the court alexy's You know he went to philadelphia any marched for the black lives matter movement. And he's been very vocal about that issue on and off. The court nurse said that he thought that the star spangled banner and oh canada should be treated as one long song and you all note for both what went into that decision. And what were your emotions as you were doing that. Honestly think about it. You know. I was on my knee for over. Four minutes into a police officer could do for eight minutes and forty six seconds. doc rivers. Sit at about two minutes. And i was done in for eight and i didn't my tile and As a sad moment can you tell me about the role he played there you know. I think kyle's always been one of the more prominent voices in the nba. And sometimes you know when it comes to social justice issues. I think a lot of major professional sports leagues like to just attach one or two Familiar faces to it. But you know 'cause obviously done a lot of work you know behind the scenes in philadelphia and just speaking out in kabul was also one of the members of the players association and he was instrumental in just organizing The nba bubble when the league shut down to figure out a way to to bring the league back so looking out for fellow players through his role at the players association. So he's had his hands in all those things and he's been around long enough where he had been around long enough with the raptors To kind of be a sort of a mentor. I guess to the younger players. Can you tell me a bit about the effect. He had in the locker room when it comes to grooming some of the younger players on that team. Yeah you know. I think you all you have to do is look at a player like fred vanfleet. You know. he he came in and was undrafted. And fred has talked so much about just the influence of not just playing alongside kyle but being able to pick house brain about what. It's like to be an nba pro came into camp. Cow did no need from eight. You know he showed me respect also demand respecting so we wanna time. I day at camp. I thought i was trying to get to the gym. Early cow had been in there for hour and a half at dan. You know he comes up to me and says you'll hear roof carried his back for me and like my art shit. I'm an mba carry. Carry all your bags if you want me to. That's the thing about kyle. Is that even though he is leaving. And he's joining the miami heat even for this next era of raptors basketball. You're going to see cows fingerprints all over it as well in pascal in ojanen and obi Those are the players that have learned so much you know having spent the past few years with kyle so you know i think i think the one example i would always use is is relatively and you look at the player that he's become i think everybody's looking to him now to.

"You know we've touched on calorie the basketball player But talk about the person The human being. He's really really loved by the team. And by my canada really Can you tell me what is it about him. That makes him so lovable. Yeah you know. I think cows one of those one of those guys who's really prickly to his superiors you know whether it's coaches or even general manager. It's been well documented that you know he's had some ups and downs with messiah jury but he's beloved by his teammates and he's beloved by fans because i think he never makes anything about himself whether it's on the corner off the court you know he does a lot of stuff off the court with you know sick kids hospital you know. Thanksgiving food drives a lot of those things in the community. You know that's entrenched him with the city of toronto and one of the best examples. I can give to really describe cholera. Is you know. During the twenty twenty season there was a regular season game with the raptors came back from thirty points down to the dallas mavericks in the second half and an kyle. Lowry was instrumental. Like he was the engine for for that. One of the most remarkable comebacks not just in raptors history but just league history and after the game when they asked him about his performance. He never answered a single question and talked about himself. All he did was he praise on his teammates. Even though everybody in the room knew that it was kyle who was responsible for this comeback. Tuesday is ron gay and chris boucher I give them all the credit today. They won that game. Give those guys credit seriously. And that's what kyle has always been like. He's always talked about wanting a young players to develop wanting them to get paid and wanting the best for his teammates. And you know to me you know. I think sometimes in sports maybe we overrate terms like leadership and like intangibles. But for me call really brought those things and he didn't just bring those things but he was also a great player and combined that made him who he was. I grew from immature kid trying to find his way man. Why everybody this that and the other two are are how to help this young get better. How do i help You know this this guy get paid. How do i you know. He's a pretty serious dude on on the basketball court like he's a he's a intense competitor but he's also pretty funny guy as well Wonder if you can tell me or give me some of your favorite funniest calorie moments in toronto. Yeah you know it's funny. You know. I think i think if people just google kalari demar derozan on youtube. You'll see a lot of just funny. Interactions between them. I'll go based off. You know these days. It's not like i gotta have the mindset of go out there and you know. I got score thirty forty points. I go out there and play aggressive thirty-seven what you mean. I didn't go out there saying. Let me score the dirty tonight. But i say got thirty seven. Say what i'm saying. I didn't go out there and you can't say that you had thirty seven. Listen what i'm trying to explain. Obviously they were great friends one of the things that actually you know i always want to point people to is just the pre game routine that he used to do when he played at home as scotiabank arena you know when when the lights would dim at the arena. And and the pa announcer would introduce the starters. Kyle.

"Wanna take a step back to going back to before Calorie arrived and became a toronto raptor. What was the state of the franchise at that time. And can you tell me a bit. About how lowry change that. Yes so you know at the time. Bryan colangelo was the general manager. So this was before just before masai jerry came and this was a few years after chris. Bosh had left toronto in free agency and gone to miami to to team up and win two championships with lebron james and to in weight. And if we go back before. Chris bosh it was a dark period after the raptors had traded. Vince carter who requested out of toronto to go to new jersey. So you're talking about probably a decade of reno raptors basketball on the pos. Vince carter era where they made the playoffs. A few times were eliminated in the first round but clearly. Just we're not in the conversation in the nba. They were just not a relevant franchise. And you know cal came here and obviously there was a series of other moves to you know. I think we can't talk about this era without mentioning dhamar rosen's impact as well but once colin damara was here. You know they turned the raptors along with head coach. doing casey. Into a winning program coincidence the rappers. Greatest years coincided with kyle lower on the floor and you know messiah juries arrival helped with that. You know the all star game came here. They got a new practice facility And the raptors just became a more credible franchise and they started to win behind. Kyle and demars well and if you jump forward now nine years after Arrived here people around the league. Talk about the raptors as one of the most respected organizations and kyle lowry's fingerprints are all over that and it just felt like it was a gradual process. I don't have the exact years in my head but it felt like they would make the playoffs losing a first round to brooklyn for example when they have kevin garnett if leading up to that championship. It was just a gradual process of the rapper rafters. Getting just a little bit better every year. Yeah and then you know. There was a lot of heartbreak along the way. Like you mentioned you know getting swept in the first round by the washington wizards losing to lebron james in what seemed like you know every single year and you know it seemed like the raptors had really reached a ceiling in terms of what they had built and obviously the trade for kawhi leonard. Really push them over the top. But you know for me. The twenty nineteen championship. Run will obviously be about kawhi but for me. It's always about calorie. Because he represented the journey of these raptors. You know he had been criticized leading up to the twenty nineteen playoff run about his up and down performances in the playoffs. You know there was one series when they played against the miami heat. Where you know. He was in such a shooting slump. That after a game one loss he went back onto the court to get shots up after a playoff game. Which is something that you just never saw before you know from from players and you know for him to have the performance that he had in two thousand nineteen during the championship bronze score the first eleven points in the.

"Alex. Welcome back the front burner. Hey so alex. We thought this was going to happen earlier this year. But it didn't Now that we're here tell me. What was your reaction when you first heard the news. That kyle lowry was traded. Yeah you know. I think i think you brought up a really good point in terms of you know in march at the trade deadline. There was the expectation calorie was going to be traded and so to me to be honest. My personal reaction was You know this. This was something that was expected you know. I think that the raptors are on a particular time line right now coming off a championship. Two years ago there now rebuilding their roster and kyle's at appointed his career where he's only really got maybe four to five years left and he wants to maximize those years and have an opportunity to win a championship and earned the most money. And when you look at those two factors i think the raptors were were never going to beat out The other teams and you know it seemed like half of the nba was was vying for kyle services as they should be because he's still playing at a very high level so hearing the news that he was going to miami honestly was was not a surprise and i feel like myself in a lot of other people in toronto. We already said our goodbyes to to colin march will the tires. It's runner-up as that. If i'm here if i i will retire. That's runner after you know that one day contract whatever happens so for people that are listening who might not know or understand the the impact that kyle lowry had. Can you tell me a bit about what he means to the raptors into raptors fans. Yeah so you know. I think on the court you know. Cows always been one of the most underrated point guards in the league. You know his his numbers when you look at counting stats might not stand out but you know you talk to anybody who's ever played with him or against him you know. He is one of the best leaders in the nba's he's one of the best point guards you know the statistics back it up basically during calls nine years here regardless of which other four players that you put on the floor you know the raptors were always a winning team. The raptors were always in contention. They always want around fifty games every season. And that was all because of kyle. And you know i think when you look at cowes overall impact to think about where the raptors were when he came here. And then you think about where kyle was in his career when he came here. He wasn't this all star point guard this championship point guard. I think it's everybody's first time when they get traded It's like okay. Wow i've been traded high cool you know it takes a couple of days to actually realize okay. I'm new opportunities new place. New new chapter in a book go. You know he had bounced around. He had bud heads with some coaches. And he butt heads with coaches here too but you know he had this reputation of just being this journeyman point guard and he grew into a champion here in toronto and he lifted the raptors franchise to heights that they've never been before a young guy from north filling all kinds of questions about them. Not tall enough not fast. Enough not athlete. How does he become an nba champion. Our work never never saying anybody never let nobody tell. You can't do something special and Disagreed guber guys man he. I can't really think right now. This is crazy is awesome toronto canada. We brought it home baby at home. You talk about his impact on the team. As far as the style of play and just just the presence he had within the team but specifically focusing on that championship that incredible championship playoff run From a few years ago can you tell me what role he played in during that run in how important he was to the team. Yeah you know. I think cow played a huge part on both ends of the floor you know. One of the most underrated parts of kalari is his defense and again. It's not just individual defense. It's just little things that he does. He's able to sniff out other teams plays. He's able to draw charges which he's most famous for. He's able to organize the rest of the team when they're on the floor and in one of the games that you know people when they look back on the championship run always talk about is game seven against the philadelphia seventy sixers and i'm sure everyone listening remembers colli. Leonard shot You know that's obviously the most iconic moment during the championship run but for basketball fans who watched the team may be closer than the casual fans. You know kyle did a lot of remarkable things in that game and throughout the championship. Run on the defensive end you know. The raptors played incredible defense in that game Especially in the fourth quarter and so.

"toronto raptors" Discussed on Premium Hoops

"There's no better team to all guy was really pitching for entire cycle And that is touch on the scheme fed and the team which. I'm sure we'll talk about more but yeah my immediate gut. Reaction of pure excitement was like my guys going to the right place. you'll be utilized correctly to worry about him. Being thrust in like this you know small forward like pick and roll handling role And it cd. We can talk about this little bit to like out the rumors of trying to run scott at the point on a hundred that works alike there is on the right track which is very encouraging Considering kind of how hard. I my neck out forum and how a lot of kind of rightful pushback Face it feels very vindicating that he's going centigrade situation just as like a fan. It's very exciting. Yeah so it's kind of interesting because a society Thanks guys are in my first inflection point of of this cycle looking at the end of the site looking at the draft moving forward because he was the guy who like in watching this year in in catching up on and trying to understand. I wet myself lower on him just because i was like well. How many teams are actually going to be able to put him in the right position. So i ended up having ten on my final board and i think in my head now. I'm like well. That was like i if i could go back. I don't think i would do that. because i just believe in scott born like just because of everything like he's one of the few guys who like i think sometimes character intensity and all that shit. It's like way overuse overthrown. Blake stuff barnes Like especially hearing in like seeing stuff coming out from his. His first interview with toronto media was like pretty special in like seeing how he's like he's like. I think there was a picture that came out of a segue yesterday wearing like one of the Dinosaur after jersey's like that is scotty barnes like that. It's it's kind of awesome So i think moving forward. I need to look at it differently in terms of like okay. We'll like yeah. I mean that's some like part of it is i. Don't i don't know how i feel about big words. Sometimes i like i. Dixon makes me think about things But ultimately like you can very much associate like. Oh yeah scottie. Barnes four makes a lot of sense. And i think like it's such a good point because like a big aren't cut and dry like looking at the way that guy's shake out his not dry like i know. Pd is not like the biggest fan of big but when he does things like You know we've talked. I've talked about before he was like you know i have. I have different boards for every team. And i think that's what i want to move towards looking forward 'cause like if i could you know if if i find you scattered after i think we need a couple of days before that was pretty likely but like if i'm going back through the process and i can put you know whoever i want on the toronto raptors for i mean scott has got to be pretty damn close to number one in looking at how everything shakes out especially after your move the top guys so i think that's where we can of bounce off no looking at what this means fit wise I think it's number one..

The three pointers finally start to fall in love to see that the game got a little bit Scrappy we're going to talk about what happened there dentist router what's going on some, you know a little bit of a confrontation with Coach Frank Vogel all kinds of stuff to dive into tonight joining me is Matt Peralta from lakersnation.com Matt, so nice to be able to come out here and talk about a win especially given the the current situation. The Lakers are in in the Stanley Cup. Yeah, I'm happy we need wins right now. We we need to take them. However, we get them Toronto was one of the games I scheduled that was scheduled. I was like, oh the Lakers should probably win this one especially since they're so short-handed that came out and did just that so, you know, I feel pretty good that we're treading water and that's all you know. I said going into this game that just like the game against the Sacramento Kings because this was a winnable game that inherently makes it a must begin because frankly the Lakers are going to have games where they just don't have the Firepower to keep up with some of these other teams. For example, we saw that against the Clippers the other day but tonight being a winnable game. They had to come out approach it as a must-win and I feel like they did the energy on both ends of the floor the execution and was on a different level and that was so great to see to see them step up coming off that loss to the Clippers. I was really pleased with what we saw will get into all the different players because there were so many guys tonight. Like I'm already having trouble. Yeah figuring out who the next man up award is going to go to and not because like on Sunday, we're there just wage. Many options tonight there were two there's too many options. There's so many guys we could give this to Yeah, you you heard the the players talk after the blowout loss of the Clippers that they needed emphasized ball movement and mad movement. I think you saw a lot of that in the first half especially the first quarter where they just decided to blow the doors off the Raptors by shooting.

Brooklyn Nets Closing in on Los Angeles Lakers in Updated 2021 NBA Championship Odds

"So let's get started says we're at all star weekend in the nba Not that anybody gives a crap when it comes to the all star weekend but it is a time to go ahead and look back at what we've seen so far in the nba. And how the title odds may have shifted because fez all of a sudden. We've got a brand new co-favourite expected or at least projected to win the nba championship yet. Brooklyn nets plus two eighty the same odds now as the lakers. The nets just about a week ago where four to one. Rj bell recommended a bet on the nets. At that time. I got to give credit. Heck i gotta give her own. Mackenzie rivers credit. He bet the nets at two to one to win the east. And i think i was buying the narrative of oh kyrie irving harden these guys. I just don't trust these guys to integrate to play well together and really the opposite has been true. The nets despite bring harden in missing lots of games. Obviously when he wasn't on the team and having durant missing so many games they're right there with the best record in the east. And i think they only get better and if i make one bet and the futures market i would bet the nets right now. Plus the two eighty jonas. You said you like the nets into win the east even more at plus twenty five right. That's that's the one that that. I would look at because when you get to the nba finals. I mean you know this. I mean i it just depends the matchups. We've seen a couple of weird situations happen in the nba finals. The past couple of years. You saw a bunch of injuries early on for the heat last year in the finals you saw the golden state warriors the year before that with the toronto raptors injuries took place in those final. So we've seen this happen before where it's such a long race when you get to the finish line. It's all about a war of attrition. who's going to be the healthiest when you get to that point. But as far as coming out of the eastern conference. I know that the philadelphia seventy sixers are a great story. But i'm with you fez. These brooklyn nets have played and exceeded expectations thus far just based on personalities. Now they do have kyrie irving. That's the problem because kyrie irving is like the guy who decides to read a book in the middle of party like people are doing cake stands and they're having a good time. There's a bathtub filled with booze. You've got stripper poles. You've got everything. And he decides. That's the time he's going to break out. Warren peace and sit in the middle of the party because he just wants the attention and wants to show that he's different and he's i mean if the earth is not flat then we shouldn't go to the bubble then they should change the nba logo. That's the only reservation. I have about the brooklyn nets. i'm not worried about james harden at all james harden shown he's willing to sacrifice and do something different and decrease his workload from an offense standpoint in order to try and make the team better. I'm not worried about kevin durant. He's already been paired up with stars before it had a couple of stars at he's played with kyri to me is the one piece of that that i would. I would be a little bit concerned with. And but here's the other part of the nets. And why. I like this and especially like to win the eastern conference. What's the one knock on james harden throughout the course of his career. Great regular season runs out of gas in the postseason. Well now he's not having to carry the entire offense himself. So if that's the case and you're going to get a better rested better in condition. James harden when the postseason comes around fez to me that just screams brooklyn coming out of the eastern conference

I could move anywhere I want and your one percenter. Here I am. I'm not a one percenter. But I've saved money over the years. I could go someplace else.

They will not have the bubble this year. I can't believe they're actually starting the season up already. These guys have got to be exhausted. Well, when you hit him that paycheck I think you get untiring. You know something, though. Just it's just my impression that it doesn't matter what level of income you're living. You hate working. Yes, it doesn't matter how much you called love your job. Nobody loves it that much When you're exhausted. Not only that, when your whole circle all makes the same You're kind of like, Let's say you're the six man you think of yourself is broke. Yeah, well, you know it, Z. That is a true state. What you hear these athletes say this stuff all the time. I'm not being disrespected by being paid only $12 million a year. They're only paying me a million dollars a month. I being disrespected and you just want to reach out and throttle them. Is it bad that I understand them? I said, I can sympathize you that I do get it because everybody is at their own level, And when they find out that you're making 4000 more than I am screwed well, it's the same million more than it is exactly the same thing. It's just from a perspective like where we are. It's really irritating. Kind of tone deaf. Yeah, it is very toned up. Especially nowadays. You should start every sentence with like, I know to most of you. This sounds silly, but I'm being disrespectful Disrespect. I should this. I would be the worst owner in NBA history because I would be disrespectful to everybody now teams air training at home and traveling the country to play each other fun fact, the Toronto Raptors have moved to Tampa for the seasons. I'm guessing Canada has crazy rules candidates. They're there. They just said screw Through it. We're going to Fort. Yeah, They're right. They are the candidates run by a wiener. Yes. And they've shut everything down and etcetera so I can play basketball. So we go. All right. Nice. No, no. Yeah, They should I think should move the Raptors to Florida. Anyway, we're after should leave. They're playing in Tampa. This tampon not have an NBA team. I don't think they do. No, I don't think they do. Either side. You'd pick Tampa. You've got the heat. Well, no. Tampa's kind of that seems like to go to his place. For some reason. I don't know. Why does Tom Brady went there? Everybody's like a Tampa must be fantastic. Must be that's that's what's doing it. All right. So the Raptor air playing there? Yes, Mavericks here, Maverick Just right outside our window here, right outside her window. Nobody. Maybe we'll get autographs this time. Are you an autograph guy? I'm not an autograph. No, I don't want to me. It tells me that I'm like inferior to you. If I ask you, it's a weird complex I had. Well, here's why people like autographs. For example, I got a picture with a movie star. He autographed it for me Get that great, But what you do is you see a movie sometime in the future when you're older, and you see this guy in the movie said I met that guy, you know, And it means something to people. I I just have never been autograph guy. I have one autograph I got in my life. The guy who played Colonel Hogan on Hogan's Heroes, Bob Crane. Yeah, I was working in a restaurant when I was a kid, and he and his entourage came in and I got his autograph. See, I would want a not a graph of somebody who's important to me, but means nothing to most people like the guys I admire in this industry or something like I just in the broadcast in the industry, like the guy does cycling. I love him like it would mean something to me. But to everybody else means nothing means zero. And what do you got to do with it anyway? You know, I've been thinking. There's a lot to is all this stuff you collect. I got all these pictures. Here's me with so and so on me with these are all sitting in a box in a closet somewhere. They're going to end up in the Dumpster. I couldn't care less. I don't put I don't put him anywhere where anybody can see him. And if I croak tomorrow, what's gonna happen to him? They're gonna end up in the dumpster anyway, so I might as well just save everybody the trouble and put him in there. Now. That's training topics coming up. Amazon is in trouble with Bernie Sanders.

"toronto raptors" Discussed on Premium Hoops

"He took a puck to the face in like his third or fourth last year in toronto and then he played the next game. Like i remember like loving everything about that and so it's been really cool as i got more into basketball growing up and in following along with basketball seeing the way that toronto has embraced basketball has been kind of extraordinary. So like i again. That's like a total everything. Like i definitely wanna talk on that for a second. What's that been like Getting to witness that. Because i think there are a lot of teams that are hoping to do something like that. I think the pacers are in a weird state a little bit because in some ways college basketball's bigger in indiana than than the pacers are just because of where they're at right now but yeah i mean looking at at toronto's is pretty special. Yeah like that's the thing like in canada. I mean we have college teams with a collegiate system is known where it is in the state. So i think like with the raptors kinda did in terms of developing like they targeted in. I i remember when the raptors like for started because i voted in the contest at like gave them their name. I picked the toronto raptors. I remember deeply because it was around the time. Drastic park came out so like every kid was obsessed with dinosaurs voted for the team. And then this team started. And you're like hooked basically from the beginning because you felt like you had some small stake in it not true but you just felt it like identify with it right and i think that identity piece i mean it was probably marketing wise quite smart but it was also just like a generation essentially grew up with a with a brand new team. The did look a lot initially kind of like a more scrappy like not necessarily put together like college team right like it was. They were very flashy. They weren't necessarily the most sustainable in years and then when they started to get better and actually just like when messiah came in and they started to focus on the development like the g. league team and like utilizing that like they're one of the i team select really utilize that system and put players that to bring them to the raptor because the raptors are still not an attractive destination for a lot of players to wanna come to. So i think when you look at how they started and like basically you know you've got. This team was like a chip on his shoulder and the whole cities sort of developed a chip on his shoulder in toronto. Sports fans already have the anyway. I'm not a leaves fan. But like i've been obviously been around it my whole life so i understand. It's the same with the blue jays you know like so. I think toronto sports fandom is enough to support another team but but basketball represented this thing. That was just like the i mean. It's just so much more of a like diverse crowd that goes to raptors gains. It was a lot of young like a younger crowd. I think when they first started. And i got people from that generation that have like now brought their children the kind of into it and like they're going to grow up loving the raptors. So i think like an you know. It doesn't hurt that. The only team in canada..

"So i really anticipate that he'll come back like better than definitely like better looking a lot. Better than he was when he went out Just give them the work that he put it on the summer training in vegas and l. a. with the rest of the team and on zone so i've always got like a little sauce lot for pascal. This hard not to like. I think you bring up really points. Like i always try and remember. I mean two seasons ago. He was a role player coming off the bench and naive even averaging ten points per game and now look worries at. I mean like. That's so. I think it's not even necessarily tempering. Expectations is just realizing lake. Okay this guy went from being like pretty under recruited playing at a small school and then having a very small role to a pretty sizable role. Now the biggest role on the team. That's a massively taken three years like i think it's so easy to forget that And that's where i'm at too. I think it sounds cliche to say but it almost might be for the best for the raptors. They won out the way they did. Because it forces you to kind of reexamine where you're at in how you're approaching things and then you come back the next year so i think that's kind of where i'm at on pascal. Headed in he's a great. Do so i yeah. I'm excited for his growth. Yeah surprising like sorry. It wasn't like. I think a lot of tronto fans in like media tronto media probably not the rest of the media but intimidated them to go a lot farther than they did like honestly the celtics were only the like that. They had to go against them because they were kind of the only team that had their number. It was a really tough match up like it was going to be a tough assignment. They probably had within the bubble but then looking at the rest of like how the rest of the playoffs chicago. I was kinda like damn like they could probably be like most of these other teams but they just didn't really have the runway for it and if someone like pascal is a contributing or like having an explosive like having reliably explosive nights. That you've seen in be able to do. That's what makes him such a difference maker. then they're very slat like super flat on the floor. And i guess that's the trouble is some of my past. Gal is like explosive players. In general like how do you get them to channel that lay rare combustive quality. And like bring you know game after game because that's what makes them so special sometimes if there and sometimes it's not by being. That unreliable is tough when you get into a playoff situation. Yeah definitely and i think that was what was so different this year. Compared to last year. I guess to feels like last year two years ago. I actually just stop even mentioning dates at this point. Because i don. I don't even know what it is. But i mean that's what was so different like i mean he took on inquires role essentially in the. He's not ready for that yet. And that's fine like i mean koiwa state. You took like thirty seven shots in one game against philly. if i remember correctly like That's something i'm really excited about for this team moving forward. Because i think bringing chris finch was i. I remember saw notification. My first thought was damn. I wish the pacers had signed him. But then my second thought was. Wow that is awesome for the raptors like Obviously incredible offensive mine really well established and well whites coach I think he's kind of what's been missing a little bit earlier..

Thrilling Raptors and Celtics series heading to a game 7

"I want to switch gears. Now to the Toronto Raptors game versus the Boston Celtics obviously, it was gained six I really thought the Celtics were closed. One out. There are a lot of questionable calls this game specifically at the end of regulation there was a no call on a Kemba Walker left and I was clearly a foul, the Raptors one, one, twenty, five, the one, twenty, two in. A double overtime game to push this series to seven games. The best player was Kyle lowry man played fifty three minutes got thirty point three, hundred, thirty, three points, eight rebounds six assists absolutely incredible employed twenty-one Norman Powell had twenty three. He had a big and one after a steal one of the big places the game on the Boston Celtics side Marcus Smart. Twenty three he's been electric lately. Jaylen. Brown continues to improve after that bad game two games ago. He's at back to back bounce back game thirty, one points, sixteen rebounds and two assists Tatum at twenty, nine and fourteen and nine almost twenty nine point triple double ties with eighteen and seven Kemba. Walker was really the only no show for the Boston Celtics, tonight. At Five, points seven assists to eleven from the field and fifty one minutes. Only five points that's abysmal for Kemba. Walker. Especially going into team that I don't really necessarily think somebody that can guard him a guy like, Caldera. Maybe for advance leak got the assignment a couple of times and a couple possessions I understand that but I don't know. Big Win for the Toronto Raptors I really do believe this game simplicitas if I told you from the beginning of the series of toss up obviously the Celtics went up to all Toronto responded to go to tie it to to Boston got a big game five victory I thought that would really seal the series I thought the Celtics would win tonight the close up at the rafters just won't quit man they won't die one of the scrappy EST teams in the NBA. One. Of the best defensive teams than the to hold a team to what only one hundred and what twenty two points in double overtime keep in mind in double overtime. That's impressive. That's playing. Basketball essentially more that's playing what? No about five quarts of basketball the hold somebody to one hundred, twenty, two points is impressive stuff. Can they get it done and gained seven? I'm not sure I'm still going to have to take the Celtics I. Think the Celtics probably should have won this game I thought for a majority of the game. They were the better team and again that no call and Kemba Walker at the end of regulation was a brutal. No call I thought two free throws, and then obviously maybe Toronto a game winner I game tire and not sure. Again Kemba Walker should have gone two free throws at the end of the game. My opinion was a close one but all is fair in love and war the referees for pretty much every game are always going to be considered bad right. Every single playoff game fans are going to have a disagreement with it but specifically, that can no call that was poor that was a bad call.

"In the final 42. Yeah, both teams had 31 leads. We blow. It came down to a game seven. We prevailed. Yours was a lot more comfortable and relaxing Game seven of the former Islander Robin Lehner and Net boy He's been fire three shutout in the conference finals. Yes, yeah, second round there. I got to tell you this I am and and there's a great theme songs to this, though. For the Siri's, because you have like you could do Viva Las Vegas! Then you could do the theme to Dallas, which is one of the greatest TV think they might be the greatest TV theme of all time. There's a lot of things that play into that Siri's, and then you get New York and Florida. And considering all the New Yorkers go to Florida. They finally escape at some point, figuring that they can't pay the taxes anymore, and they just rushed to Florida. So a New York Florida type matchup is pretty exciting, too, when Tampa is in there, too, so But I heard Sal tease last our guest where you can talk about the Islanders, and you could talk about the Mets. If you'd like to. We will not be freakin talkingabout. The Islanders of the Mets. This is CBS Sports Radio. That means there's people in California, NEW YORK Chicago L. A Texas Georgia. Kansas City. That don't give a flip about the freakin Metz. If I can say so. They don't care about the Mets. Sometimes we forget, and I apologize. Sometimes we forget. The Mets are a national punch line. Nobody is going turning onto CBS Sports radio Gone, Man I went today. Let's hope we can get some good Met's talk this hour. My gosh, they revolt there revolting and they're non factor. My gosh, and the only reason we mentioned the NHL right at the top is because Anthony and I both had a personal interest in I wanted to congratulate him. Well, we're going to talk about is what national radio audiences tend to talk about. They tend to talk about the story lines of the day that are the most interesting. We talk about the breaking news of the day, which sometimes comes about but we talk football on the show. That's what we do. We talk football. Met's talk gets sort of put down, you know, like it just goes down the list when I'm putting together the shown Met's talk just doesn't tend to cut it. You know, I want to fit that Mets talking, but we walk away from it. You know, I mean and then and it's unbelievable. Don't get me started. You people want Mohr. You want more, and we'll be plenty on the bucks on the Lakers. Later on today. Two teams facing strange, strange occurrences. The Miami Heat I flat out will raise my hand and say, I apologize. I apologize. I'm I would put it to say that I was completely ignorant. On the Miami Heat's chances. In this n BA bubble completely ignorant. And not many host will tell you and be honest with you like that they'll be gone. You know, I really thought the heat on the team that could potentially pull something off when Lundberg tells you that buy it. When Lundberg tells you that who eats sleeps, drinks n ba. It's in his blood. You could cut his cut his wrists. And I swear Marv Albert would come out. I mean, the guy loves it. When you hear Lemberg talkingabout the MBA. I get I get educated a little bit every time I hear Robin talking about the MBA. But I missed the boat on them. But The Toronto Raptors. Can I just say this? You've seen the horror movie. You've seen it in every harm movie. There's a point where whether it's Jason Vorhees or Michael Myers or I can't think of the Freddy Krueger. When you've got the opportunity To kill the monster. You got to make sure they're dead. There's always I can always tell you if somebody falls off a cliff. Which is what happened to Nell Benson this week on General Hospital now went off the cliff. And I think America cheered because Nelson a an evil character, but she fell off a cliff. And now Was not found now was not found. So I promise you, Nelson alive. Wake up. She's alive. If they don't find the body in Port Charles, I guarantee is she's alive. When you had a chance to kill the Toronto Raptors, the defending champions when they had a chance to just be you had your hands on the throat. And you had a chance to knock him out. What happens Well, first off, I'm going to tell you this, and I talked about a Friday morning on the D a show. You could do math. I can do math. I don't know, anyway. That you're able to inbound a ball set. Get a shot off in 0.5 seconds. I have no idea. And I heard that well, the clock operators are neutral site. That's how it was described to me. Well, they're neutral site people. It's not like somebody had an agenda there. I'm just telling you this I don't believe you can inbound that ball set shoot. In half a second. That said it counted. And the Boston Celtics opened the door to the Toronto Raptors to be alive. That is a scary proposition when you have the opportunity To take the monster and you get you get to knock him out. You get you have to you have to kill him. You have to take the if you have the sword in your hand. Make sure you pierce the heart run right through them. Don't stab him run right through them. Get that opportunity, do.

"For the twenty nineteen NBA, Champs the Toronto Raptors. Eric Smith. Grey. Eye Eric, how are you? Doing. Very well, thank you very much. If we. As Tronto Basketball fans twenty one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighteen, twenty, thousand nine. You. Know what what a season that we had to defining year for for fans. When Twenty Twenty March twenty twenty comes around. And everyone is saying. Can we go back to twenty nineteen three fast forward? Through twenty twenty. But I'm now thinking I. Don't know about you eric that. Maybe, twenty twenty year that. Really, we're we're. We're changing I hopefully. We're changing the way that we treat each other. Yes, moving forward when your thoughts on that. Listen just to be clear. I'm ready to ready to answer this an absolutely ready to go. Are we rolling? We are we were. I think you're banging on. I think that there's no denying it was what a eight twelve weeks ago. More than that. Obviously when things started, but it was probably eight or ten weeks ago where we all were saying making we just hit the reset button can can can twenty twenty just go away? I think there are a lot of people certainly NBA circles. That were looking to the very beginning of the year when David Stern passed away and then when Kobe Bryant Steph came at the end of January as well so even just within the NBA community that were. Significant stories to start the year, and then all of a sudden we get to the first weaker little longer than the first week of March and the NBA to me was perhaps the league that kind of started it all almost globally. I mean there were already certain countries especially overseas that were starting to. Go into lockdown measures in quarantining or whatnot, but it seems like the world in general no-doubt. North America didn't truly take notice in didn't truly extinct drastic steps until the NBA said. We're done. We're hitting the pot right now and I think because of all that, and because of the fear that all of us added as as humans. As brothers and sisters in husbands and wives, parents, and grandparents, and aunts and uncles, everybody kids. You know people of all ages I think we were scared I think there's still a lot of people that are scared in terms of what's happening in the world What's going on? When will it go away? If it goes away? Will there be a vaccine? Won't there be a vaccine? Who will take it? Who Won't take it? HOW SAFE THEM I? Is it okay to go public? Should I wear a master? We're asking the questions. Go on and on and on and I. Think you can way on people and I think that's probably the reason why a lot of folks were just saying it. The pause button no hit the race button. Let's yet act to twenty nineteen. Let's pretends didn't even happen, but as you say now. What has happened. In the last couple of weeks specifically. And certainly, since since the killing the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. I believe that. In the wake up, call should have happened a long time ago for many. And I'M NOT GONNA sit here on some some high per. Se That I. You know I've always been aware. And I've always been fighting the 'cause I believe I've been an ally. I believe I've been away, too. Many of the issues I believe supported. All or the at the very least most of the issues over the years I like to think that at live my life in a good way, and if treated people Broccoli, even through all of this I've seen there's more I can do. And even if my doing is using my voice using my platform again, being stronger ally, for friends for colleagues just for humanity period and I think because of that There's a sense of no. We shouldn't delete twenty twenty. We need to use twenty twenty as the wakeup call for what needs to change not just between fellow man. Obviously. Men are one night when I of course Even, if doughnuts, not the diver conversation, but even the impact on our environments everything. You again I. I know we're going to circle back to. The current race relations in the issue surrounding that led no doubt but you just think of the impact that covert has had on the lack of pollution and bluer skies and cleaner skies and cleaner air, and more animals, roaming in in neighborhoods in areas that they didn't before and clean waters, and all of that I think should serve as a wakeup call to perhaps the way we need to live in the way. We need to treat our earth. Yeah, better when? I do return to normal quote, unquote, whatever normal ends of being. Yes I was speaking with a a friend of mine. WHO has battled? Three different types of cancer. over the past. Less than a decade. And, she was saying she has like a new. Outlook on on on how she approaches life. You know just with what she's gone through. her name was Manila and when he was telling me that. You, know when when cove hit. You know obviously. Everyone is is in a in a state where you're freeze. You're trying to figure out what to do next door. How do you approach this in one of the things that she did was? What can I learn from this week at I? How could I become better and I think one of the things for me. Is is empathy..

S. cities like Chicago where over twenty six hundred people were shot in twenty nineteen but it's still a shocking development for a city that was once nicknamed tron of the good a former Toronto police chief has links the rise in gun violence to the banning of the stop and frisk program in twenty fourteen which was ended over complaints that officers were unfairly targeting Toronto's minority communities police also point to the problem of firearms smuggled across the US border inspector Joe Matthews is head of the Toronto police guns and gang task force for the guns that we see is about seventy five percent are coming from the states and if we look at hand guns specifically it's about eighty four percent and Matthew says stemming that flow is next to impossible you know it is a protected border but it's a border that millions of people in the millions of trucks across every year it's you know it's just not result to search every single one but the problem isn't just guns smuggled in a legally from the U.

So that will definitely mean that our number two is gonna be heavily into the NBA basketball what we've got to talk about the finals and quiet Leonard, and obviously, the Toronto Raptors being there for the first time and making the most of it at least in game one game two is a little bit later today. So we'll have a little bit better idea of what could happen in the series after game two but gotta be impressed with the run that they're on right now. Mike. No, you're absolutely do. And you know what wise just plain out of his mind? He and meeting that team and everybody else's coming with them. So it's been fun to watch with Kawai.

The guys just so calm, cool collected whether it's on the basketball floor, whether it's in a press conference, I, I really think that quite Leonard would be a really interesting guy to get to know. I mean, he's, he's like the man of mystery don't you agree like he's so mysterious. But yet at the same time, just just very, very the, the guy's amazing. I mean, just an unbelievable talent out there on the floor man. No. I would I would love to see him in Boston drain. I don't think that's gonna happen. But no, I think right now he's probably the best way player. We got out he'd in the NBA now. He is fantastic. Really fun to watch the way that the Toronto Raptors have been playing, and they're putting their Mark so far at least game, one of the NBA finals went to them and game to. They're going to be favored again, a great chance. I think to win this series to be honest with you. So we'll get into our number one in the books, that means our number two on the horizon.
