Bargs takes charge and The ‘Fino goes for a career high and..and..and..let’s give Sam some credit

Cleveland Cavaliers 82, Toronto Raptors 91 This one was comfortably in the bag before tipoff when it was announced that Lebron would be resting his finger for a day or two. Not having Bosh didn’t even matter because we simply have way too much depth for Cleveland to handle; even with Lebron this would’ve been   …Continue Reading


Raptors vs. the LeBronless(?) Lebrons, 7pm.

by

cavsraps

Deja Vu week comes to an end tonight when Cleveland takes the court in Toronto. The big story, of course, is whether Bosh and James will play. It’s pretty obvious that they need their superstar more than we need ours. This young season has been Lebron’s version of the one-man play: He does it all except   …Continue Reading

If RaptorsTalk can say it, I can say it: Lame Post Alert! After a game like that, you’d think the Grizzlies might have been better off just showing up, collecting their bobbleheads, and heading back to their hotel. Mike Miller: 0-5 Rudy Gay: 2-9 Pau “I used to enjoy this” Gasol”: 4-12 To recap: Three   …Continue Reading


Raps win on Spanish night as the dude wonders if we’re better without Bosh. I disagree and call him crazy.

Memphis Grizzlies Some, Toronto Raptors A lot I went to this game and had some pretty good seats courtesy of some friends. Memphis had beaten NJ last night at the swamp and had apparently spent most of their energy and motivation because today they had nothing. It’s a normal mindset really, on the back end   …Continue Reading


Raptors vs. Bizzaro Raptors, v2.0 (aka. the Deja Vu edition) 7:00pm

by

Since I just wrote a game preview for the last Grizz game, I’m not going to do a lick of research for this post.  Because as my good friends know,  impeccable memory (along with laser vision and elephantitis of the genitals) is one of my finer qualities. We beat them on their court, which, following Raptor Logic™,   …Continue Reading

Jamariomania is spreading like hot butter on the shaved thighs of a Thai hooker.  Check out some neat new gems about the Moon Man on ESPN’s TrueHoop here, including his delinquent “smuggling a Discman into school” criminal past.  Sing it, Jamario! (to be fair, Jamario only found out Canada existed a few months ago. Not a whole   …Continue Reading

Plain and simple Colangelo pleased, sees room for improvement NBA 2007-08 Celtics vs. 1995-96 Bulls – This comparison of the new-look Celts and the record-setting Bulls squad of the 90′s is interesting…and meaningless.

This teeter-totter’s making me nauseous. But a win’s a win’s a win, even against the NBA equivalent of Glass Joe, seen below mimicking the Chicago Bulls’ 4th quarter. What a mess. Where do you start? When you play like a disinterested rec league team down by 20, it’s more than lack of effort – it’s   …Continue Reading


Back to .500 after beating Da Lowly Bulls, must-wins against Memphis and Cleveland coming up + Must we tie 18M at the 1 spot?

Chicago Bulls 78, Toronto Raptors 93 If you can’t beat the Bulls at home these days your team probably deserves to be in the NBDL. A relatively easy 93-78 win over Chicago at home puts us back at .500 with Memphis and Cleveland coming up at home. There’s not much to say from this game   …Continue Reading


6-7, Raptors vs. The Beat-a-Bulls, High Noon

The Raptors have a habit of ‘hanging around’ winnable games, unable to drive nails into the coffins of lesser teams. Well, you can’t hang around when you’re playing against Lebron – he’ll string you up by your shoelaces and leave you for dead, swaying from the rafters like a worked-over punching bag. LeBeast devoured us   …Continue Reading
