You know it happens every year. A player is selected with high praise and a couple years later fans are left wondering how did that other guy slip past them? Raptors Republic staff member Apollo is wondering how Davis will stack up against the players drafted after him.
More trouble off the court for the once pursued Matt Barnes. Considering his latest exploits and Colangelo’s knack of avoiding troubled players, did the Raptors dodge a big ole’ bullet this summer with the falling through of our two year offer to Barnes?
Jarrett Jack did an interview with the Hangtime Blog via NBA.com and discusses this year’s team and its outlook. Jack feels that unless the team makes a good trade between now and when training camp opens that that Raptors won’t be a legitimate team in the Eastern Conference.

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.
