Crosshair: Chris Bosh

By

20/10…you keep those kinds of players. It was a challenging year to say the least, and no one on this team had a harder time with it then Chris. After a summer where he won Olympic gold as a KEY member of the US National team (KEY as in he was crucial to their winning,… Read more »

Raps Fan’s 3 Point Shot

By

1) Will the Raptors extend this winning streak to 6, or will we all just end up being upset over what could have been if  BryCo had fired Smitch 6 months earlier and went after D’Antoni? 2) What will the Raptors record be over the next 8 games? (I got them 5-3 – splitting with… Read more »

Raps Fan’s 3 Point Shot – March 12/09

By

Is it me, or does Bosh seem more excited to give a weather report then win games? #boshsucks if you are on twitter (we have to call him out, can’t let him get off scott-free!) If Smitch was still the coach, would the Raptors be in the playoff hunt? (do we even care?) Is it… Read more »

Round Two

By

I need help Only the Denver game that “cost” Smitch his job was by a larger margin. At what point will the rhetoric and idiocy about the playoffs stop? Sure they are 5.5 games out of 8th spot, but what has happened this season that has certain idiots suggesting the playoffs? 21-36 seem like a… Read more »

By

Sam Smith woke up this morning and couldn’t figure out what to write, so he thought he’d make something up. He came up with this. Let’s play along though, commenter BujuBosh came up with this trade idea which would send Nash, Barbosa and Barnes to Phoenix for Calderon (BYC), Kapono, Parker and Jamario Moon. The… Read more »

Sam Mitchell Fired!

By

Jay Triano is the interim coach. Sportsnet Link. I knew it was a done deal when Doug Smith bravely said that Sam’s job is “very safe”. The players should feel real shitty after this move. The Denver loss was the straw that broke the camel’s back and it was ultimately the players who got their… Read more »

ATL revenge mission, Parker, MVP, Doug Smith

By

If the upcoming Laker game is ranked 10 on the degree of difficulty scale and say Charlotte was something like 4, then the Hawks should be around a 6 or a 6.5. Plus they’ve already kicked our ass once and that was with Jermaine O’Neal in the lineup, so needless to say we have to… Read more »

Raptors vs Bobcats – It’s Time…

By

It’s time to step up and be men. It’s time to show some pride. It’s time for heart and character to shine through. Dramatic I know, but the chips are down, and these are the moments that separate the men from the boys. When everyone is healthy and the shots are falling, it is easy… Read more »
