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…

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 »

Roll Call – Jan 9 vs Grizzlies

By

The “big shoes to fill” edition. Adams – Honorary roll-call inclusion. Although he wasn’t present in body, he had the same impact on the outcome of the game. Bargnani – The VL tag wont be dropped until he hits the 20 ‘solid-game’ in a row mark, but thanks for the hope during a shit season… Read more »

Roll Call – Dec 27 vs Trailblazers

By

The “young turks” edition. Adams – only one thing will enable this guy to play any quality NBA minutes: Gatorade being deemed a stimulant and anybody who drinks it is banned from playing in the league. Bargnani – shooting .500 from the floor, showing confidence, not hesitating….yet Coach Triano sits him during the decisive part… Read more »

Raptors Somehow Make It Three in a Row w/ Videos

By

I’m sitting here wanting to talk about tonight’s game against he Bucks, but all I can think about is how Parker/Bosh/Calderon each played over 40 minutes, in back-to-back nights. In a game where the bench should have got some burn, they didn’t…and why you ask? Cause the bench isn’t very good.

T minus 2 days + Some things the Raptors should do

By

Let’s start off this morning by thanking Eric Smith for linking to the free ticket contest. Nice of him. The season’s a mere three days away and the Raptors are picking up some injuries. They’ve all been to low-key players such as Hassan Adams, Will Solomon and Nathan Jawai but when your roster is this… Read more »

Jamario Moon’s Summer Diary Journal

By

With a week until the season starts, there’s not much to say that hasn’t been said. We’ve heard ad nauseam about our lack of defence, Sam Mitchell’s Lasik (which, if you ask me, makes him look like the type that sleazes up to drunk chicks at a jazz bar), and, highest on many skeptic’s lists,… Read more »

Top 5 List: Why The Raps Will Be 1 & Done…Again!

By

5. Jamario Moon Seems like his success from last season made him ‘fat’. It doesn’t appear he worked very much on his game during the summer, case in point: his jumper. For a guy who likes to shoot so much, and apparently has free reign to do so, it doesn’t fall nearly enough to justify… Read more »

Moon and Parker are below average NBA starters

By

No longer does it have to end with Bosh, O’Neal and Bargnani. Krish Humphries is now part of the “Big Four” that Sam Mitchell will be relying on for muscle. A strong training camp and a couple good preseason games later Humphries is feeling good about his new heavier frame which he isn’t shy to… Read more »

Should we worry about Jason Kapono’s defense?

By

The man is a dead-eye shooter who needs an inch or maybe two to get his shot off. Not since Dell Curry have we seen a marksman of his caliber and yet he manages to get lost in the Raptors offense which is designed almost exclusively for the three point shooter. After going through a… Read more »
