Gameday: Raptors vs Bulls – Dec. 5/09

By

I’m just putting this out there, but Bosh played like a max-franchise player last night, much like the previous 20 games of the season, but y’all had nothing to say about it yesterday. Our man of little words let his game do the talking, put this team on his tatted back, and won one for… Read more »

It all comes together. Only problem? It’s Game 82

By

Bosh had something to play for Raptors 109, Bulls 98 It ends the way it began: with an unlikely win on the road. This time it was against the Bulls who had everything to play for as a win would’ve avoided the Celtics in favor of the Magic. The gunning Raptors jumped on them early… Read more »

50 = Bad

By

Even a half-french-half-nelson can’t stop CB4. It’s been a minute, but I’m back. Sadly, not a whole lot changed while I was gone.. The fortunes of this team have remained the same. Regardless of how we got here, the fact of the matter is that this team is worse off right now then when BryCo… Read more »

Toronto at Chicago Open Thread – Jose could play

By

Check the Opening Tip to find out why Aaron Gray is called the White Panther. So Zo got everyone excited for no reason yesterday, turns out he finally announced his retirement which is a little funny because I thought he did that when he got traded to the Raps in the Carter deal. Funny guy… Read more »

TJ Ford vs Jose Calderon Will Solomon

By

Grab the Opening-Tip which tells you about rappers honouring TJ Ford and how George Stroumboulopoulos and Danny Granger are linked. I didn’t see the game, but the loss to Chicago cheapened the effort the Raps gave against the Celtics. All-in-all, three losses in a row doesn’t sit nicely with me, regardless of who they come…

More 4th quarter choking

By

The PNR defense cannot result in matchups like these! Bulls 102, Raptors 98 Terrible finish to this one as Chris Bosh gets blocked by Joakim Noah on a fadeaway jumper with the Raptors down two. Hindsight is 20/20 but even at the time it made too much sense to go through Bargnani who was having… Read more »

Hopefully There Wont be a Swirsky Tribute

By

Grab the Opening-Tip: The ‘Please Don’t Trade for Hughes’ Edition. And you learn what Luol Deng and Arsenalist have in common. With the specter of Swirky’s return looming over this one, I have been dreading this match-up for fear of the Raptors having some sort of cheesy tribute to the guy. I wasn’t a fan…he… Read more »

Does Winning = Money?

By

An interesting comment, and some proceeding ones, about winning and profitability sparked my interest. This has been something I always have thought about. Fortunately, Forbes listed their NBA team valuation list, which included profitability. Some really interesting things came up, reaffirming what many Raptor Fans have known/suspected for years: WINNING DOES NOT EQUAL PROFITABILITY!

After 82 games, it’s all even

By

Toronto Raptors 97, Chicago Bulls 107 The bench got some big time run in meaningless game #82 but couldn’t pull it out in Chicago as the Bulls ended their miserable season amid speculation of a coaching change along with some very awkward contract talks coming up with Luol Deng and Ben Gordon. The Raptors end… Read more »
