These are tough times, team’s not playing well, the injuries are piling up, the defense isn’t there and worst of all a potentially humbling West coast trip is lurking in the shadows. They say you have to hit rock-bottom before you can start to rise and I think we officially did that this weekend. The… Read more »
It would be sadly ironic if Jose Calderon misses tomorrow’s Heat game and we would start Will Solomon at the point. It would mark a complete 180 degree turn from the situation of only a year ago when the Raptors main advantage over any opponent in the league was the starting point guard situation. The… Read more »
Download the Opening Tip here. It’s Philly looking for revenge tonight at the ACC but its hard to focus on this game with what happened on Monday. That loss hurt enough to bother me for another couple weeks, just long enough until we play Boston again. So circle Sunday November 23rd on the calendar and… Read more »
Sam Mitchell doesn’t want to get fired. To ensure that he doesn’t get fired he’s trying his best to get off to a good start since this is the most vulnerable time for him. If the Raptors come out of the gates slow there’s a good chance that Colangelo won’t stand for it and look… Read more »
Dear Coach Sam Mitchell, GR8 GAME LAST NITE!! Hard fought victory on the road, one of those “character” wins you’re always talking about. It looked like a real good time from the bench. So…speaking of that…good three games and all…and I ‘preciate that you’re the coach…but I gotta ask: what’s up with my minutes? You’re… Read more »
I’m sitting here wanting to talk about tonight’s game against he Bucks, but all I can think about is how Parker/Bosh/Calderon each played over 40 minutes, in back-to-back nights. In a game where the bench should have got some burn, they didn’t…and why you ask? Cause the bench isn’t very good.
Team news for the day is the Raptors exercising the club option on Bargnani’s contract. Imagine if they had let him walk? I mean, picture Colangelo holding a press conference and walking up to the podium along with Sam Mitchell and saying, “The club has decided to part ways with Andrea Bargnani. This was not… Read more »
Let’s start off this morning by thanking Eric Smith for linking to the free ticket contest. Nice of him. The season’s a mere three days away and the Raptors are picking up some injuries. They’ve all been to low-key players such as Hassan Adams, Will Solomon and Nathan Jawai but when your roster is this… Read more »
The Raptors practiced on Friday and afterwards Jermaine O’Neal spoke with the media who kept pestering him about how he left early in the Denver game and whether they should be worried about it. O’Neal was visibly irked because apparently they’ve been asking those questions to Sam Mitchell, his teammates, the ballboy, doorman, some random… Read more »
I didn't know I had Tourette's syndrome until last night. My wife is very concerned. We have a top 5 center that is treated like the big oaf in the catholic league , that is a little touched and he smells a little. What gets me is our guards and wings don't feel it on the court , shit it ain't the coach , looks like the coach lets them jack up anything they want . Maybe it's a cultural thing , you know , the big oaf ain't cool , can't dance right , doesn't listen to the right beat. But why go there , people will just hate on me and call me the big oaf lover. The big oaf went toe to toe with the best in the league and in my opinion was the better player. To bad nobody on his team could see it .
