Raptors Roll Call Nov 22 vs Magic

By

The “who’s your daddy” edition. Banks – he was in uniform tonight. Really. Only person more pissed off than a Raptors fan should be is Marcus’ dry cleaner. Bargnani – a board shy of his third straight double double. Entered the game feeling under the weather and it showed. Fouled out late 4th quarter. Looked… Read more »

How bad do we want revenge?

By

There will be no Vince Carter tribute at the ACC because he declined any such possible ovation/appreciation/boos. Turns out he’s smart enough to figure out that half the fans in the building wouldn’t stick to what the jumbotron tells them to do and would start raining down cat-calls and boos and showing off their Jorge… Read more »

It’s only pre-season…oh wait

By

Soooooooooo……….where’s that defense you been talking about? Magic 125, Raptors 116 – Box Caught this one on the PVR knowing the Raptors had lost. Was expecting a total crap performance and true to rumour, they started out like they finished in Memphis – spreading the cheeks wide open for unproven perimeter players. This time it… Read more »

Gameday: Raptors vs Magic – Nov. 1/09

By

Wow, Friday against the Grizz didn’t work out at all. The Raptors looked like…the Raptors. They were getting burned from the perimeter, interior defense was suspect, team rebounding was non-existent, they weren’t sharing the ball, and weren’t hitting their shots. Perfect storm. Today, the Magic roll into town, and the unspoken rivalry is born again.

How The Raptors Stack Up Against The Rest Of The Atlantic

By

After a pitiful 33-49 season, Colangelo replaced two starters, the first five guys off the bench, and 2 of the last 5 at the end of it. Two make things more interesting, we have a “rookie” head-coach who has to integrate all these parts while trying to get this team into the playoffs, and possibly… Read more »

Raps Fan’s 3 Point Shot

By

1) Pritchard, for reasons unknown, comes calling with a straight up trade of Oden for Bargnani. Do you make it? 2) What do you think this big announcement Chris Bosh has been advertising for June 1st will be? How disappointed do you think we will be? 3) Who’s got the Magic tonight? Who’s got the… Read more »

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

Will the real Raptors please stand up?

By

The Bosh-Howard matchup rarely disappoints. Raptors 99, Magic 95 A man can try to watch a game on tape-delay without knowing the score, he can try to avoid all human contact, he can answer the phone with a warning instead of a hello, he can not check his email, he can cover his ears in… Read more »

Alice Fine She Aint: Raptor Fail

By

“Yes Dwight, it does feel tighter” Grab the Opening Tip. Sorry Dinosty, don’t mean to bastardize your family tradition here, but duty calls. I sat down to write the Pre-Game for Orlando, when I realized it was a waste of time (I’m still gonna do it, don’t worry). If the Raptors got Bucked by a… Read more »

Free Ukic and good things “Will” happen!

Howard’s second foul was key in the Raptors’ great first quarter. Magic 102, Raptors 108 Sorry for the lateness of this post-game, but after the Raptors notched their second quality win of the season (second of 2009, both without JO…), Realizar, Arsenalist, Dinosty and me went to Philthy’s to celebrate, a drink led to a… Read more »
