This week on a special PLAYOFF PREVIEW edition of The Doctor is In with Phdsteve, we have made an emergency roster substation. Greg Mason (the brain from the south) is currently missing in a Budapest marketplace and so we are thankfully joined by Kyle Weidie.  Kyle is the lead writer and editor at the Washington Wizards ESPN True Hoop Affiliate truthaboutit.net

Kyle joins my brother Mike (who knows college basketball) and Blair Miller from The Fifth Quarter Blog as preview the Raptors vs Wizards first round playoff matchup.  In particular we discuss:

  • the Raptors & Wizards seasons in review here
  • initial thoughts about the 4-5 matchup
  • coaching issues this season for both teams
  • logos
  • The keys to the Raptors winning this series
  • The possible land mines that could cause the Raptors to lose the series
  • And our predictions
