    Default Raps gets no respect!

    http://espn.go.com/nba/standings so was on ESPN and watching the standings. I know it's only pre-season but as it is, and please correct me if I am wrong but didn't the raps win 3 games in a row? The standing says the won 1 game not 3 in a row. If you can have 1 game in a row that is. ) I checked other teams and they are all up to date. I also know it's not a big deal to most but man, why just the Raps?

    Anyways, just food for thoughts.

    GO Raps Go! Man I can't wait for the season to start to see what happens.

    This is why you use the official site

    ESPN has shitty updates for the Raptors

    There was a time when ESPN had the Toronto coach as "Courtney Witte" instead of Dwane Casey, also Marcus Camby and Jermaine O'Neal were in the "injuries" section when they no longer play here.
    TORONTOOOOOO RAPTORSSSSSS

    not only ESPN. We don't get any respect from NBA as well. I don't have any chance to buy a ticket to watch a game between my X'mas-New year holiday last 7 years, coz we don't have any home game each year at that period. Its suck!

    The Raptors are often neglected by ESPN but keep in mind that it is an American sports news network that is not allowed to broadcast in Canada. Barring an extraordinary play by a Raptor, it is perfectly logical that they show Knick highlights. They know who their audience is.

    Strangely enough, I really on Yahoo! for stats, boxscores and standings before NBA.com. Must be the familiarity earned from fantasy leagues.

    There is no doubt the Raptors don't get respect and to make things worse they have been bad most of their existence. The only way that can change is if they 'start WINNING' and most importantly 'KEEP WINNING'. Lets hope this is the beginning of that.

    Agreed. Raps haven't really done anything that warrants respect. Start winning games, and winning games often. Then the fame will follow.

    Start winning games and then they will start to make calls against them so the other teams can win. I go back to when Blue Jays won 2 titles and then the next year the Expose was best team in the League and Blue Jays was leading the American League. Just how much money and viewers do you think they would have lost on an all Canadian World Series? Just saying!

    Are you saying that it was more profitable for MLB to cancel an entire season, than have 2 Canadian teams in the World Series?

    People may not care to watch the Spurs, but everyone respects them
