Blake Murphy, Freelance Writer and Managing Editor of Raptors Republic, came on the podcast for an extra long interview. So long, in fact, it had to be split into two episodes. This episode will focus on Blakes career arc and writing, while the second episode will be a more general NBA and Raptors discussion. Topics that were discussed in this episode include: his start in writing; how an opportunity at theScore led to him focusing his efforts in basketball; the advantages the NBA has in marketing their stars compared to other sports; how players become more comfortable interacting with the media; the process he used to become an established NBA writer; his fandom of wrestling; the role of social media; and the personal struggle of balancing of breaking news vs having good analysis on the news.
