Thanks guys, glad to be here.
Glad to have you. Please don't be shy about jumping in with thoughts or opinions. This is a great group and they all "pile on" to any poster who gets up on other guys. Just try hard not to suggest 12 player trades involving four or more teams. :-)
I'm french fan of the raptors :) I lived in Toronto from 2009 to 2012 and discovered the NBA then (no soccer on TV in Canada...). I'm now back in France and still watch as many raptors game as I can (timezone difference is killing me..).
Also glad to see Pietrus playing with the Raptors now, he is a great guy! (Fun fact: France is the country with the most players in the NBA (USA aside obv.)
See you around!
Welcome to Raptors Republic Matt! :)
To be honest, I don't know much about European basketball. Chalon has been dominating the french league lately, but they struggle in Euroleague against top team (Madrid, Tel Aviv, Barcelona,...).
Main issue is money. Sponsors and big organizations prefer to invest in soccer or rugby, and therefore french clubs can't afford to keep their best players...
Read all the time but finally joined. I am ignorant, faith based Raptor fan. I can not rest until we bring home a championship. I will to resort to violence to make it happen. I probably shouldn't have typed that but i did. I stand by that statement.....and understand it maybe used against me in a court of law. i am from Toronto (Scarborough/Malvern) & don't believe Drake writes his own lyrics. I watch at least 72 EVERY season. Nobody is perfect. I try to watch them all.....sometimes it is to painful too watch. I'll never jump ship, and always protect this house. At least here i can vent. Don't expect perfect spelling.
Hey guys, first post and wanted to introduce myself, imma try to fit in and bring in some no-nonsense jiberjabber :>
Big welcome's to all the new members!! It's certainly busy around here these days! :)
I still remember being Jersey'd in my Toronto Raptors Jacket in grade 3 or 4. Back in the days of Black, White, and Purple.
Welcome drunkmunky! You wouldn't happen to be...
...nah couldn't be. :p
Is that the one that got shot up to space by Iran?
Hey everyone. I have 3,000+ posts on another basketball forum (DiscussHoops.com) and 1,000+ on a hockey forum (HFBoards) so I'm not new to the forum thing. I'm new here, looking forward to posting and getting to know the members here :)
Welcome Dunk! 2 weeks before the trade deadline... great time to join!
Thanks! The other site I'm a part of is very low on Raptors fans, and I thought I'd like to be able to talk with more Raptors fans who watch the games like I do, especially to discuss the upcoming trade deadline.
Welcome to our humble abode Dunk! :)
