Toronto Raptors’ media day was yesterday, and in light of that I’m pushing back my reaction piece to Hollinger’s Player Profiles to instead react to some of the more intriguing quotes from media day.


T-1 to a basketball game

The Raptors practiced on Sunday between 2PM-4PM back at the ACC without Chris Bosh and Hedo Turkoglu, although both took shots. Joining them on the sidelines were Sonny Weems and Antoine Wright who were both out with sore knees and are unlikely to play on Tuesday in London. That’s about the only “news” to report   …Continue Reading


Detailed Scrimmage Report

I felt bad for this kid. The $20 dollars was the best value of money you could ever spend on the Raptors. Myself, AltRaps and Wally were standing on the baseline the entire game and got a great view of the scrimmage. You can check out some pics and videos I took from my rather   …Continue Reading

It may be a position that we jockey for a while   …Continue Reading


Training Camp: Day 1

by

Kyrie Irving

We were finally able to get beyond the madness of Media Day and are ready to get down to business. Day 1 had a couple themes: Health Bosh is on the shelf for the next few weeks, which is a big blow to this team. This is Triano’s first training camp, and you know he   …Continue Reading


Unknowns aren’t bad

by

cavsraps

This team gets no respect. One the one hand that makes sense since they haven’t played a game yet, but even then, nobody gives them the benefit of the doubt. At all. There are question marks on the roster but those are just that, question marks. They’re not negative or positive, they’re just unknowns that   …Continue Reading
