One of the most loved moments during the Raptors 2019 championship run was hearing Matt Devlin shout out towns and cities from across Canada. Today, we are thrilled to welcome the man, whose play by play of the 2019 NBA championship series will be forever remembered by Toronto Raptors fans.
Matty D as he is affectionately known, has been the voice of the Raptors since 2008 but had a lustrous career long before then. Today we learn more about who he is, from his early day to his current gig. He’s called games for almost every sport and he shares some of his favorite stories and talks with us about his life in Canada and what it meant for him and his family when they became Canadian citizens during a ceremony held between games 1 and 2 of the 2019 finals. Reliving the championship run, we get the inside scoop on what was happening and what it felt like to be right in the middle of it all.
We talk about the coming season, what to watch for, what it will be like to call the games remotely, not being with the team day to day, and how the Raptors have created an NBA arena in a hotel in Tampa. Wondering who Matt’s favorite Raptor is of all time? Join us to hear his answer and much more!
