Will Solomon traded for Patrick O’Bryant

By

From ESPN: In a three-way trade, Sacramento gets Will Solomon from Toronto … Toronto gets Patrick O’Bryant from Boston … and Boston gets a heavily-protected conditional second-round pick from Sacramento. From The National Post: The Raptors acquired little-used centre Patrick O’Bryant from Boston in exchange for their little-used point guard Will Solomon. Boston will then… Read more »

What did you expect?

Careful Chris, don’t want to injure that mouth. Cavaliers 93, Raptors 76 As unlikely as a playoff spot is, I’m still looking forward to this bunch at least try and make a push to prove that they’re more than a collection of overrated misfits and underachievers. The trade has breathed a little purpose into the… Read more »

Roll Call – Feb 18 vs Cavaliers

By

The “miracles don’t happen” edition Banks – showed a little bit of promise in the limited time he played. As I recall, so did Primoz Brezec. If ball doesn’t pan out, he can always fill in for Tracy Morgan. Bargnani – 2 quick fouls. Not going to be a good thing for our squad if… Read more »

Now there’s nothing we can do about the first round pick but we might be able to salvage something of Marcus Banks. If he… Read more »

The Lane Violation Dunk

By

Kapono shoots as Lewis and Mason search for the quarter. First up, very disappointing to see Jason Kapono throw up a 14 in the finals of the three-point contest. He was the only pure shooter in the competition and for him to lose to a cast that didn’t even crack 20 is a shame. I’m… Read more »

Attention BC, No Encore Necessary

By

With all due respect to some of my friends and colleagues here at the Republic: The Raptors easily win the Marion deal and now find themselves only a couple dollars away from being REBUILT. Now, I’d love to suggest that more deals are coming and that Nash and Amare are just around the corner, but… Read more »
