Give ‘er… 1) Give us your best guess as to what Maurizio Gherardini does in a typical work day. 2) Obviously the biggest surprise about this season, for most, has been the dismal record. Taking that out of the equation, give us one good thing that surprised you about the Raptors this season and one… Read more »
The “well thank God that trip is over” edition Banks – major contribution tonight. Yup, word is he actually finished his first ever sudoku. Bargnani – stellar game tonight. As we were reminded (often) his foul trouble was a major blow to our early success. However, his defensive effort tonight was well above average (they… Read more »
Scola does for them what JO was supposed to do for us. Raptors 97, Rockets 107 Caught the 11PM replay of this one on Raptors TV as TSN2 blue-balled us again. The last time we played the Rockets they looked as bad as any NBA team can look, but that was probably because of Tracy… 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.
