episode 96 - “trade deadline” - toronto raptors talk
The Raptors have now moved to 2nd place in the Eastern Conference after a devastating defeat at the hands of the Milwaukee Bucks at home. The team's shooting woes and fundamental errors are starting to bleed through and are becoming much more apparent. With the Trade Deadline approaching, it's clear that a move has to be made in order to really make a push towards

episode 92 - “midseason round table” - 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.

he Raptors are STILL at the top of the NBA and the Eastern Conference with a record of 25-10.

Can this pace continue?

While currently undefeated at home, the Raptors have an overall record of 12-1, winning 9 of their last 10 and succeeding in a West Coast sweep of 4 games for the first time in franchise history. We say it often that this team is different, but they continue to provide us evidence of this with every game played.
To unpack the team's recent success, host Adam Corsair is joined by Connor Chambers of Toronto Sports Views to recap the week that was. They touch on topics such as Serge Ibaka's resurgence, Pascal Siakam's improvement, whether or not Jimmy Butler to the Sixers will be impactful, plus our Too Sweet Moment of the Week and Game Predictions.

This past Monday, the Toronto Raptors held their annual Media Day Event to kickstart the 2018-19 NBA Season. Pressers were held as head coach Nick Nurse, Kawhi Leonard/Masai Ujiri/Danny Green, and Kyle Lowry each held their own respective segments.

episode 70 “the trade deadline” - toronto blue jays talk
With the MLB Trade Deadline just a week away, it marks a turning point for the Blue Jays and exactly what direction to intend to go. With trade chips such as J.A. Happ, Josh Donaldson, Roberto Osuna, and others, the Blue Jays as we have gotten to know them will (hopefully) look a whole lot different. Though some fans may not like the idea of seeing old faces in new jerseys, the light at the end of the tunnel will be the youth that brings this organization back into Championship contention where they belong.
To discuss these and other topics, host Adam Corsair is joined by Connor Chambers of Toronto Sports Views. Connor and Adam break down the possible trade candidates the Jays currently have, what the return may be, and what this means for the Jays' future. Plus, they discuss the incident involving the Toronto media and Marcus Stroman two weeks ago in Boston.
episode 69 - “kawhi” - toronto raptors talk
Toronto Raptors Show!
Sooooo this happened... Kawhi Leonard is now a Toronto Raptor and DeMar DeRozan is not. In what is being described as the biggest trade in Raptors' team history, Masai Ujiri undoubtably ditched his mostly conservative approach and is now really going for it, as he successfully traded away the most popular star in the team's history for now the biggest. It's a gamble, as Kawhi is a pure rental piece with only one year of service time remaining on his contract. But it's a risk worth taking.
Yes, this actually happened.
Host Adam Corsair is joined by three guests to break down this move in its entirety - Demar Grant of Tip of the Tower, Jordan Kligman of Hash Tag Basketball and the host of the Hash Tag Raptors Podcast, and Connor Chambers of Toronto Sports Views. Simply put, we covered it all. All of the concerns, excitements, apprehensions, and embraces.

episode 66 - part 2 - “the unfortunate reality” - toronto blue jays talk
Weekly Toronto Blue Jays Talk!
Things were looking up for the Blue Jays after achieving a solid sweep against division rivals in the Baltimore Orioles. However, the Jays came crashing down to an unfortunate reality of their own after being swept by fellow division occupiers in the Tampa Bay Rays immediately after. It's hard to gauge this team, as they've been polarizing thus far. With the position of being sellers at the trade deadline seeming like an inevitability, it's time for us to accept the fact that the hopes for a 2nd Wild Card in 2018 just may not be at the table.
To discuss these and other topics, host Adam Corsair is joined once again by Connor Chambers of Toronto Sports Views for PART 2 of our exclusive Toronto sports talk! Connor and Adam tackle topics like Russell Martin's recent struggles, Randal Grichuk coming back to life, possible trade candidates and returns, and the Roberto Osuna controversy. We also predict the results for the upcoming series against the Nationals, Braves, and Angels!

Join us for PART 1 of Episode 66 of the South of the 6ix Podcast!
This one is all Toronto Raptors.
As the last team in search of their new head coach, the Toronto Raptors finally filled the void by signing internal candidate and former assistant coach, Nick Nurse. Of course, this generated a lot of chatter within the fanbase with fans wondering what differences they will see with someone that has been part of the organization since 2013. How will Nurse's vision differ than Dwane Casey's in order for the team to get over the Playoff hump?
To tackle these and other topics, host Adam Corsair is joined by guest Connor Chambers of Toronto Sports Views. Connor and Adam spend the episode discussing the hiring of Nick Nurse, what this means for the team moving forward, what moves we should expect the team to make, and what sort of difference we should expect for next season.
