As much as I love Russ, I really don’t think he will ever win a chip because of his play style and bad decision making. You can’t teach height, but you also can’t teach brains.

Wow these guys were a mess this episode. Very disjointed. Failed to completely cover the entire 1st rnd and all of the trades. Void of meaningful discussion because they were too focused on praising every pick. The Ringer needs to find a knowledgeable, well spoken NBA analyst to anchor this show. Listening to this was like sitting at a crowded table at a high school cafeteria. Babble babble babble

so brutal that KD got hurt. The Raptors fans though, so disgusting to see them cheering an injury. Pretty bad look for Toronto

you guys are killing these guys coming into the league knowing there going to develop and it takes 3/4 years. I know it's your job to talk about what they bring and not but damn...give em a break! Corner 3 is usually good but not this ep.

Typical American podcast; the Raptors pull out an impressive win and you spend most of it talking about the Bucks. SMDH.

Ryan Persaud Lol you guys are really funny... you realize most of the players on the raptors are American? There isn’t much to talk about with the Raptors, plus they talked about them a ton in previous episodes. Right now the Bucks are on the ropes (at the time of the podcast) so of course they’re gonna put more time onto them.
