Fix the defense and go from there

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   …Continue Reading


Some PG #2 stuff and the Raptors mascot

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   …Continue Reading


Philly tonight but we’re still not over Boston + More Mitchell aggravation + Bargnani trade talk

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   …Continue Reading


Clever Mitchell’s shortening lineup to avoid early dismissal

by

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   …Continue Reading


Dear Sam Mitchell, Love Kris Humphries

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   …Continue Reading


Raptors Somehow Make It Three in a Row w/ Videos

by

Kyrie Irving

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.

Forgive me, but I am fighting a cold, and sorry AltRaps, I had to kick it off from my living room (none of those decorative books lining my walls).


Mitchell content with roster (or so he says to himself)

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   …Continue Reading


T minus 2 days + Some things the Raptors should do

by

garrett-hinchey

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   …Continue Reading


“If I need more scoring…I’ll play Joey Graham”

Kyrie Irving

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   …Continue Reading
