The “what’s that? You are down 3 players? Well we will take it easy on you” edition. Adams – stumpy kept his rightful place nice and warm. You think he even puts his jersey on or do you think he keeps his street clothes on underneath so he can beat the line at Timmy’s? Bargnani… Read more »

Golden State Warriors 108, Toronto Raptors 112 (OT) The Raptors were a hair’s breadth from losing this game in regulation and if they had the theme of this post would’ve been completely different. Instead of focusing on Anthony Parker’s great defense on Maggette in overtime we would’ve focused on the -10 rebounding, missed FTs, bad… Read more »
That was one of the best season opening team introductions I have ever seen. Reinforcing the team concept by introducing all players and coaches and then having the starters come out like they were members of the N.W.O. Kudos to the game ops folks. “Tree Stump” Adams – I swear, if this rugrat sees the… Read more »
I was at this game in Auburn Hills tonight. Couple things: Sat 5 rows off the floor next to Andre Drummond's mom and Grandma who were across the aisle from us, so the family section. Paid $120 the day tix went on sale. My point is, that's is a way cheaper way to see the Raps if you can make the drive. Second point, the palace was absolutely FULL of Northern Invaders. We drowned out any and every detroit chant, defence chant, Drummond's mom who was quite vocal. And the Detroit fans, by the end were literally like "what the fuck is going on?" Where did all this people come from. It was so amazing to take over another team's building. As though we were trying to outdo the fans who rocked the Cleveland game. And to top it all off fuckin George Clinton was the halftime show! The raps players were loving it. And when the fight nearly broke out (malice at the palace 2) it would have been complete pandemonium, cause I swear it was 50/50 ratio of Raps to Pistons fans. The Johnson dunk was over Drummond and I want the poster. Nice work to any of the Republic who were at the game. Best Raps game I've ever gone to.
