Roll Call – Feb 3 vs Cavaliers

By

The “well, at least it wasn’t a blow out” edition Bargnani – posted a double double on a night that it didn’t even appear he was on the floor. Magic act indeed. Bosh – think he had a little gusto in his back pocket tonight? His shots were falling but, again, he needs to up… Read more »

Roll Call – Feb 1 vs Magic

By

The “still wondering why they deserved no credit for a 3 game win streak?” edition Bargnani – horrid shooting night offset by some fairly good D on a guy that 2 years ago would have manhandled him. You have to think it caused Bargs to exert a lot of energy since, when he did take… Read more »

Roll Call – Jan 28 vs Nets

By

The “start printing those playoff invoices” edition Bargnani – he had as much rhythm tonight as an elephant trying to dance to drum and bass. Completely taken out of his element and piling up on the fouls like AB V1.0. Bosh – I might start calling him Lobsterboy. If I didn’t see the odd close… Read more »

Raps Look To Make It 3 In A Row

By

Grab the Opening-Tip where you will learn the sad-sad thing both the Raptors and Nets have in common. Trailing the season series 2-1, the Raptors head into Garden State hoping to tie things up and regain some pride that VC & Co. stole when they did this: I hate the Nets, dating back to Babcock… Read more »

Raps down Kings, sweep season series.

By

Do, do-do, do-do-do-do Raptors 113, Kings 97 I have to admit, for once, I had no doubt about the outcome of the game. Even with the Kings sporting a 4 point lead in the first half, I was relaxed and firm in my resolve that the Raptors would pull this one out. The Kings just… Read more »

7 Losses in a Row…and Counting

By

Throw it down Big Man! Throw it down! Raptors 75, Pistons 96 Before getting into it (not much to get into really…sadly…), my disgust for this TSN2 situation came full circle tonight. I live up in North York, no Philthy’s in site, and after stumbling from bar to bar with nothing but the leafs playing,… Read more »

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

Jermaine’s Health Update

By

The following statement was just released by the Raptors / Bryan Colangelo RE: the status of Jermaine O’Neal and the center’s injured knee: After reviewing everything with the medical team yesterday and again this morning, it was decided that a few more days of rehabilitation, therapy and controlled court work would be best for Jermaine… 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…

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

Look at that, Jermaine O’Neal’s a reasonable guy

By

And I quote from his post-practice interview: I told the coach today, I’m going to come off the bench and work my way back into it. He’s earned the right to stay in the starting lineup. I have no ego. I’ve been out for nine games, I don’t deserve the right to come back and… 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 »

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 »
