    Default Media Day/Training Camp Thread

    Wow, this summer has passed by pretty quickly, huh? After this weekend, it's back to business as usual!

    Check out the training camp roster here: http://blog.raptors.com/press-releas...g-camp-roster/


    Interesting tidbit here: Valanciunas is shown as 7ft 257lbs (Draft measurements were 6'11" 231lbs)

    There's going to be many articles, pictures, interviews, videos from media day and training camp, so post them here and discuss!

    I'd like to believe the 257 but it's a bit too good to be true. More than Magloire?! Maybe they're tacking on the weight of the Republic's expectations. That said, for all you conspiracy people out there, I tried to see what nba.com has him listed as.....but he doesn't exist!! Acy's there. Ross is there. Maybe it was a buyout thing. I guess we can't change the name of this thread just yet

    The only guys that have different height/weight on the Raps website as opposed to the official NBA website are the rookies

    Acy:

    Official NBA website: 6'7" 225
    Raptors Training Camp: 6'7" 233

    Ross:

    Official: 6'6" 195
    Raptors: 6'7" 197

    None of the players have weight/height updated since rookie years I believe...

    DeRozan:

    Official: 6'7" 216
    Raptors: 6'7" 217

    But from what we've been hearing from the Raps FO, he's grown... and not only by one pound.

    Hey just looking at the kid he's definitely filled out.

    He was rail thin when drafted he looks stronger now for sure!

    Why do I feel like DeRozan is saying, "Sorry Ms. Jackson. Never meant to make yo daughter cry. I apologized a million times."

    Also, DD does look bigger. Nice to see.

    Demar does have a bit of Andre 3000 going on, I agree. Haha

    What I find especially interesting though is that in your Avatar, Matt, Fields is rocking a #9 jersey. In the photo above, he's rocking #2 ...

    My understanding is that the press conference photo was prior to the James Johnson trade, which opened up the #2 jersey for Fields.

    Jonas does look like he's bulked up (he takes the shirt off towards the end)

    He looks like he is getting some Linas swagger. Those Lithuanians and their swagger. I hope he has Linas's temper too.

    Hearing John Lucas' story was really cool, I recommend hearing what this guy has to say on the website. I love his approach to the game.

    Demar looked like he had a chip on his shoulder, he looks ready to prove people wrong.

    Jonas has come a long way with his English
