The NBA schedule’s shadow was spotted today which means that pre-season will come early this year, some time in October they tell me. I like it if we just played the schedule rather than classified it into ‘hard’ and ‘easy’ stretches because as history has taught us, the hard and easy months never go according… Read more »
I hardly feel like starting this thing again after the break I just had but duty calls. The Raptors-related action during the past two weeks can be summed up in one sentence: Calderon injures himself but its not too bad at all. That and the Redeem Team winning the Gold over against a depleted Spanish… Read more »
There’s no Sunday game which means we won’t be hearing how teams hate playing us at the ACC so early because it’s 2AM or something ridiculous their time. Of course they end up kicking our ass thus poking a huge hole in the theory that we have some sort of advantage on Sundays. The Raps… Read more »
I was at this game in Auburn Hills tonight. Couple things: Sat 5 rows off the floor next to Andre Drummond's mom and Grandma who were across the aisle from us, so the family section. Paid $120 the day tix went on sale. My point is, that's is a way cheaper way to see the Raps if you can make the drive. Second point, the palace was absolutely FULL of Northern Invaders. We drowned out any and every detroit chant, defence chant, Drummond's mom who was quite vocal. And the Detroit fans, by the end were literally like "what the fuck is going on?" Where did all this people come from. It was so amazing to take over another team's building. As though we were trying to outdo the fans who rocked the Cleveland game. And to top it all off fuckin George Clinton was the halftime show! The raps players were loving it. And when the fight nearly broke out (malice at the palace 2) it would have been complete pandemonium, cause I swear it was 50/50 ratio of Raps to Pistons fans. The Johnson dunk was over Drummond and I want the poster. Nice work to any of the Republic who were at the game. Best Raps game I've ever gone to.
