Kyrie Irving

Roll Call – Apr 12 vs Sixers

The “Violet Palmer needs to be demoted” edition Banks – if he becomes an alcoholic, can he come off our cap? Bargnani – reminded us of the pre-Christmas Bargs. A quiet 17, but 4 fouls and just 2 boards. Bad time to pull a Keon when cult hero Armstrong dubbed you as the top Raptor… Read more »

Kyrie Irving

Roll Call – Apr 10 vs Wizards

The “Boogie Williams” edition Banks – the only pressing question: how is the toe? Bargnani – wonder if his heel bone is connected to his shooting bone? Brutal shooting night can be partially chalked up to the Wizards putting quick defenders on him, but he should have been able to shoot over them with ease…. Read more »

Kyrie Irving

Roll Call – Apr 8 vs Pacers

The “worst game of the year” edition Banks – him chilling in Vegas rather than be seen with this team is telling. Bargnani – thanking his lucky stars that he was selected to suffer the rotating fake injury tonight. Bosh – Triano can’t even do this right: Bosh was one board away from another double… Read more »

Kyrie Irving

Roll Call – Apr 7 vs Hawks

The “who the hell are those guys” edition Banks – partying in Vegas while sitting out with a bad toe. Why sit with your team on the bench when you can be downing drinks at the Bellagio? (see story in the weblinks). HO would be proud. Bargnani – early foul trouble accompanied by a technical… Read more »

Kyrie Irving

Roll Call – April 5 vs Knicks

The “fore” edition Banks – when you head to work tomorrow, wondering how you’ll stretch your paycheque until the 15th, please remember Marcus’ toe and how hard it must be to make it to the bank to withdraw his funds. Bargnani – solid game adding to the patchwork of the vision of what is to… Read more »

Kyrie Irving

Roll Call – Apr 1 vs Magic

The “best game of the year” edition Banks – somebody call a toe truck. Bargnani – pretty much a non-factor in the second half due to foul trouble (and eventually fouling out in the early fourth), he played a hell of a game on Dwight and had him stumbling around as much as I’ve seen… Read more »

Buyout, playing time or bench

Is there anything to be salvaged of this crew? Enough talk about Chris Bosh’s possible exit from Toronto or whether Calderon’s been injured or just crappy. It’s time to look towards the end of the bench and see just exactly what we have there and whether any of it is worth bringing back. The Raptors… Read more »

Roll Call – Mar 27 vs Thunder

The “orange crushed” edition Banks – here is hoping his injury spurs BC to dump his sorry ass. Bargnani – anybody else kind of giggle to themselves everytime they see the look of shock on Andrea’s face when he gets called for a foul. That mouthguard makes him look like some “special” kid trying to… Read more »

Roll Call – Mar 25 vs Bucks

The “twitaholics anonymous” edition Banks – how proud your family must be. “My son just suffered a season ending injury.” “Oh my…what happened” “Bone spur in his toe”. What the hell? Is that even possible? Why not just say he suffered a blister while rolling up the rim?  Bargnani – feed the hungry man, indeed…. Read more »

Roll Call – March 22 vs Clippers

The “what happens if you put two turtles in a cage match” edition Banks – his ego is still cracked, so he didn’t play. Got paid, though.  Bargnani – his heel has a booboo. I woke up today and had a crick in my neck. Funny thing is, I’m still doing my job. Get out… Read more »
