2022 State of The Raptors Address

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 193: 2022 State of The Raptors Address

Today on The Ave Podcast, we present the 2022 State of the Raptors Address, the 6th annual podcast episode that breaks down the surprising Raptors journey during this NBA season. I invite SSA Family Members Julian aka Jules Da Commish & Randall Walter (HC of Excel Hoop’s Prep Basketball Program) as we discuss the highs and lows of the Raptors first half of the NBA Season. We break down’s Fred VanVleet’s emergence; the happy & unexpectedly super impressive Scottie Barnes rookie year; if Pascal Siakam is back; and we dissect if the Raps Front Office has done enough for the home stretch of the season. Plus Nurse vs. Casey; some Raptors history deep diving (including which former Raps are dead to us); and everything else from the We The North squad. Buckle up, you’re about to get all the Raps talk you never knew you needed.

*For past SOTR episodes, check out last year’s, 2020, 2019, 2018 & 2017.

**This episode was originally recorded on March 10, 2022, right before the Raptors started their 3-game winning streak. Of course.
