Cavs beat Raptors in open practice

By

If this is any indication of how a first round playoff series might play out, count me in as part of the crowd wanting to play the lottery. There have been many degrading moments in my life as a Raptors fan but losing handily to a team that’s not even trying to win the game has to be a first.

Today, the Magic roll into town, and the unspoken rivalry is born again.

No Pirates in Philly

By

Bargnani defending the paint while everyone else watches. They got Cheese Steaks and clean up after our drafting messes, but they don’t have any damn pirates, which the Raptors can be thankful for. I was half wrong about Philly at the start of the year; I pegged them for a 50 win team ahead of… Read more »
