Lowry missed practice to attend a funeral. This likely played a role in some of things we saw with Kyle in the Bucks game. That said was not info we were aware of at the time of recording the podcast. It may well play a role in the performance we saw from him in the game vs Bucks.
In any case we also talk about the Raptors second unit at length. A conversation on the toughness of Amir Johnson and relate it to the Robert Griffin III debate in the NFL. As well as much much more.
You might have noticed we forgot to pick a winner for the 1lb of Chicken Wings. My apologies and congratulations to Mitch McClure you are the winner. Also we teased an interview with Chuck Swirsky which is done and will be posting later today.
