Fresh off of the Raptors’ first win of the season, Drew Fairservice, Scott Carefoot, Oliver Macklem and I got together for another installment of RaptorBlog Radio.

We touch on the first week and first win of 2012-13, DeMar DeRozan’s contract extension and early play, Kyle Lowry’s awesomeness, Andrea Bargnani’s not so awesomeness, Jonas Valanciunas’ first three NBA games and Dwane Casey’s early rotation, as well as briefly looking ahead to the week that will be in Raptor Land.

As for the “Victory Baby!” title, if you don’t quite understand it, then I guess you didn’t see this clip of Jonas Valanciunas that the Raptors tweeted after Sunday’s win:

For the record, #victorybaby was later trending in Canada.

  1. RSS feed up yet

  2. Always enjoy listening to your podcasts.

    I agree that locking up DD may be an asset for the team, but I think they they overpaid to do it. I was hoping for around 4 years and around 24 Million. But, I hope that he does prove us all wrong.

    Also, like Oliver said, I think he needs more time at the 3. If Ross gets going offensively, maybe that helps spread the floor for him to attack the basket more often.

    The Bargnani situation definitely gets really interesting if he continues to play poorly.

  3. Good podcast but Oliver needs to stop saying “we”. Forgets too often for my liking.

  4. The guy that was defending DeRozan’s contract (Oliver?) should be pulled off the air.

    • Thanks for listening Dan! Your feedback is very much appreciated lolz

    • I enjoyed Oliver in this. It would have it been a pretty boring podcast if everyone just sat around and reiterated what Joseph wrote in his column about the DeRozan deal a week ago. Those comparisons that Drew brought up were pretty damning, though.

      Next time, I hope you guys allot more time to the “Kyle Lowry is awesome” segment.

  5. Kyle Lowry fact: He has already accumulated 1 Win Share this season. In three games. The Raptors have one win, and he is responsible for it, in it’s entirety.

  6. shouldn’t the headline really be, “Wictory Baby!”?
