Toby and Marshall are joined by Lucas Meyer (Newstalk 1010) to discuss his experience reporting on all things that was the Raptors championship parade and that includes the good, the bad and the ugly.
They also deal with all issues surrounding Kawhi’s year in Toronto and his somewhat untimely departure. Is Toby right or dead wrong about his take...?
Lucas also shares his experience voicing PM Justin Trudeau on a recent episode of The Simpsons.
The episode ends with this question: if the Leafs won the cup, will their parade be bigger than the one the Raptors just had?
What do you think?

They then bring in longtime Raptors fan Jay (USS, Human Kebab) to discuss Coach Nurse’s decisions on how to use his timeouts, about the NHL on CBC using USS’s ‘Ying Yang’ as the theme to the Stanley Cup Finals, and about being an artist/musician who also loves sports.

Dan Gladman (Raptors) comes back in studio to talk to Toby and Andrew Damelin (TSN) about wether or not Nick Nurse is as good a head coach as the general public thinks he is. They also discuss how the games are officiated and what (if any) are the Raptors weaknesses at this point in the season.
