Buckets & Tea NBA Show – Tom Thibodeau’s Soup and Sandwich

Today, host Cathryn Naiker has special guest, NBA artist and designer Casey Bannerman (collaborations with Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, and many more) on to discuss:

  • Casey’s relationship with Fred VanVleet, their collaborations together, and whether Freddy is as nice as he seems.
  • The trade rumours surrounding James Harden, whether acquiring Ben Simmons makes sense for the Brooklyn Nets, and the definition of the word ‘superstar’.
  • Which teams need to make a move at the upcoming trade deadline, including the Dallas Mavericks, the Portland Trail Blazers, and the New York Knicks – and what Tom Thibodeau orders for lunch.
  • Who gets the League Pass award for the most fun teams to watch in the league.


In our Raptors Homer Moment, we discuss deadline targets for the Raptors, how Casey has felt about the Raptors’ season so far, and how Casey would redesign the apparel for Nick Nurse and the coaching staff.

And finally, in our Hot Girl Summer Nick Nurse Highlight of the Week, we freak out over Nick’s Canadian Heritage Moment as a guest star on Murdoch Mysteries.
