Notes from Summer League: Day 1 & 2

By

Chris Denker, of Netscouts Basketball, is reporting live from summer league: If you are evaluating on wins and losses the Toronto Raptors summer league performance has been disappointing with an 0-2 start.  But if you are merely evaluating individuals and getting a look at your draft picks you can take away a few positives with… Read more »

Summer League: Raptors vs Lakers Live Blog

By

Follow the game on @raptorsrepublic ‘Sup everybody, they’re singing the national anthems. They got a real cow to sing the Canadian one. Never really liked how the US national anthem gets a louder cheer even though it was sung worse.

A Lot of Action

By

He didn’t get the trophy for yesterdays coup d’etat, but he deserves it in my book. Let it not be said that BryCo doesn’t do work. In what is the craziest trade this franchise ever made, B.C. Colangelo turned Marion, Humphries and Uni-brow (Douby) into Hedo (don’t call me Hedu) Turkoglu, Devean George, Antoine Wright… Read more »

Morning Coffee – May 21

By

Toronto Star "You can’t have too many voices," Triano said yesterday. "We need to challenge each other, yes; but we all have to have the same basic philosophies or it won’t work." With NBA-wide speculation rampant that Triano will eventually hire former Memphis head coach Marc Iavaroni as his lead assistant, no one connected with… Read more »

Crosshair: Roko Ukic

By

If I had to buy a Raptors jersey, it’d be Roko’s. Not having watched many Lottomatica or Barcelona games, I was surprised at how raw Ukic really was. I didn’t expect a refined product but was hoping for him to be of reliable service, after all he’d been playing regularly on some of the better… Read more »

Roll Call – Season Wrap up

By

The “I told you so” edition Adams – possessed the characteristics you look for as a general manager of an NBA franchise: a fire hydrant with a headband. Hassan brought as much value to our team as would rap lessons from 50 Cent given to Jake Voskuhl. Banks – at least Hassan isn’t costing us… Read more »

Roll Call – Apr 15 vs Bulls

By

The “don’t shed a tear” edition Banks – call the toe truck. Bargnani – meh, no reason to play since you have 4-5 months off. Why stress yourself? Bosh – started off hot, then went as cold as Joan Rivers’ vajayjay. Then the light went off and he put his middle finger up for all… Read more »

Roll Call – Apr 13 vs Wizards

By

The “payback’s a bitch” edition Banks – dead weight. Bargnani – faker. Bosh – absolute bonehead play late fourth in not hustling to the ball and letting Dixon blow by you, steal it, and score what could have been the dagger. To make up for it, he did what franchise players do: win the game…. Read more »

Roll Call – Apr 12 vs Sixers

By

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 »
