The Tidal League Podcast is excited to welcome back Michael Grange, award winning sports journalist and author.

Michael shares his initial thoughts on the future of the Raptors and as we ramp up towards the start of free agency, Fred VanVleet’s dazzling future as arguably the most sought after player in the free agent market puts into question whether he will be back with the Raptors.   

With a lot of speculation out there, Michael shares his perspective on Raptors President, Masai Ujiri, his future with the Raptors and what it will take to keep him.  

With his usual insight and thoughtfulness, he talks about why emotion is at the heart of most sports teams and why millions of fans live and die with the team they love, which is really why professional sports exists.

We get into where the Raptors will likely play next year, how the League will adapt as the pandemic continues and if we will find our way back to some semblance of a normal season.  

We  touch on Steve Nash being named as a first time head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, the pressures that come with that responsibility, and his style of PhD coaching - if you’re curious about this and our other teasers, tune in to hear a great conversation with one of the top sports journalists in the league.
