The “please hold me” edition. Banks – as badly as we played, let it be said we didn’t have to see Marcus Banks play. Bargnani – did fine early, then the pasta went limp. Belinelli – the energy guy had a blackout. Provided next to nothing tonight, going 2 for 9. Pitiful.
Both the Raptors and Bobcats have one thing in common: they both just beat up on the Pacers heading into tonights match. This was a game I had highlighted on my calendar once the Stephen Jackson trade went through. Regardless of what you thought of them before, you have to respect them now. This team… Read more »
Bosh for Yao?(surveys) This week in The Doctor Is In we look at the benefits of bringing AI to TO. Both Marco Belinelli and Coach Triano get the 3rd degree in “hot or not” and we wonder what it would take to send Chris Bosh home. You can click the play button below or listen… Read more »
Calderon’s play was instrumental in getting the Raptors off to a great start. Pacers 112, Raptors 123 – Box The trend of blowing big leads is becoming the norm.

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.
