Roll Call – Season Wrap up

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 »

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

Will Solomon traded for Patrick O’Bryant

From ESPN: In a three-way trade, Sacramento gets Will Solomon from Toronto … Toronto gets Patrick O’Bryant from Boston … and Boston gets a heavily-protected conditional second-round pick from Sacramento. From The National Post: The Raptors acquired little-used centre Patrick O’Bryant from Boston in exchange for their little-used point guard Will Solomon. Boston will then… Read more »

Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

Roll Call – Feb 18 vs Cavaliers

The “miracles don’t happen” edition Banks – showed a little bit of promise in the limited time he played. As I recall, so did Primoz Brezec. If ball doesn’t pan out, he can always fill in for Tracy Morgan. Bargnani – 2 quick fouls. Not going to be a good thing for our squad if… Read more »


Roll Call – Feb 11 vs Spurs

First things first: join me in wishing RapsFan a speedy recovery. He’s going through a heck of a bad streak on the health side of the ledger and I’m betting some good vibes his way will be well received. In the meantime, enjoy the sponge baths dude. The “who said hard work doesn’t pay off”… Read more »


Roll Call – Feb 10 vs Timberwolves (NSFW)

The “all good things must come to an end” edition Bargnani – meh. Passable offensive game offset by some horrible defense most of the night. Trade him. Bosh – at least he is on the bench, unlike some other highly paid athletes. Keep him. Calderon – the turnstile was in full use tonight. Welcome to… Read more »


Roll Call – Feb 3 vs Cavaliers

The “well, at least it wasn’t a blow out” edition Bargnani – posted a double double on a night that it didn’t even appear he was on the floor. Magic act indeed. Bosh – think he had a little gusto in his back pocket tonight? His shots were falling but, again, he needs to up… Read more »


Roll Call – Feb 1 vs Magic

The “still wondering why they deserved no credit for a 3 game win streak?” edition Bargnani – horrid shooting night offset by some fairly good D on a guy that 2 years ago would have manhandled him. You have to think it caused Bargs to exert a lot of energy since, when he did take… Read more »


Roll Call – Jan 28 vs Nets

The “start printing those playoff invoices” edition Bargnani – he had as much rhythm tonight as an elephant trying to dance to drum and bass. Completely taken out of his element and piling up on the fouls like AB V1.0. Bosh – I might start calling him Lobsterboy. If I didn’t see the odd close… Read more »

TJ Ford vs Jose Calderon Will Solomon

Grab the Opening-Tip which tells you about rappers honouring TJ Ford and how George Stroumboulopoulos and Danny Granger are linked. I didn’t see the game, but the loss to Chicago cheapened the effort the Raps gave against the Celtics. All-in-all, three losses in a row doesn’t sit nicely with me, regardless of who they come…

Hopefully There Wont be a Swirsky Tribute

Grab the Opening-Tip: The ‘Please Don’t Trade for Hughes’ Edition. And you learn what Luol Deng and Arsenalist have in common. With the specter of Swirky’s return looming over this one, I have been dreading this match-up for fear of the Raptors having some sort of cheesy tribute to the guy. I wasn’t a fan…he… Read more »
