S3 E14 – Second Chance Points/No Strength/Sexton Ate/Norman Powell Trade?/LaMelo Injury & ROY/MORE!
This episode is dedicated to a good friend of ours and a long-time fan of the show who was taken away from us too soon. Rest In Peace Philo 1995-2021. Join The Faedaway boys this week as we dive into another unfortunate week for the Toronto Raptors. We can't seem to catch a break around the perimeter and seemed to be lacking in defence and giving up too many threes and second chance points. The defence needs to strongly improve and stop giving up rebounds. The guys then discuss their thoughts on the potential Norman Powell trade rumours and what that may or may not look like for the Raptors. Elsewhere in the league, the old and the new have fallen with LeBron James and LaMelo Ball both suffering some injuries. Will this default the Rookie of the Year (ROY) award to Anthony Edwards? Join The Faedaway for another action packed episode!
