As the Toronto Raptors have elevated Dwane Casey’s former right-hand man Nick Nurse to the big chair, the natural questions are now coming in The North: Who gets credit for the success of the last five years of the Casey tenure?

It looks like Massai Ujiri of the Raptors has made his pick. What does that mean for the coach the Detroit Pistons have hired?

Host Matt Schoch also has some thoughts on the top few prospects in the NBA Draft.

For Pistons Playoff Playback, we look back at a trio of big wins during the NBA Finals series that made Detroit Pistons champions of the world.
