Raptors Republic Android & iOS App

Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

            No word on Kawhi yet. Injury report was just Lowry.
            Kawhi needs to play imo. Next game isn't until Sunday and the rest is all against <.500 teams

              This was compiled by Blake at the Athletic. It's the clearest data I've seen on how important the starters are this year, and also how important it is that we stop dicking around with all-bench lineups.



              This confirms what the eye test has been telling us for a while: 2 starters on at all times, albeit difficult to achieve, keeps the team humming. Couple of things to note from this:
              --Kawhi plus bench doesn't work. Opposing teams double or triple him daring the rest to do something, and they don't.
              --This doesn't include the effect of the 5th starter (Centre) and I suspect some noise would be introduced, but from what we've seen, Lowry works very well with either Ibaka or Gasol, and FVV + Gasol is also good (small sample)

                    Lowry never ceases to amaze me. All bench? Awful. Bench + Kawhi, even worse. Bench and Green (nba plus minus leader), bench and siakam? Just below 0

                    Lowry and the bench? Winning! I'm honestly wondering if Lowry has been a part of net negative lineup in any time of the past 6 years

                      Just a shoot out to Blake, Korean and the other writers covering the Raptors at The Athletic. It would probably be worth signing up for the next couple of months. I believe you can quit any time. Worth it for the playoff run if nothing else... and it IS worth it for everything else.

                        Lowry is a very adaptable player. If he plays with Ibaka, his assists + Ibaka's scoring go up. If he plays with Gasol, his own scoring goes up. If he plays with guys running and gunning like Siakam, he also excels at hooking them up. If he plays with ball dominant players on the wing like Kawhi, he also learned to be involved on off-ball/secondary screens that fly under the radar but opens up the floor. If he plays with deadly corner shooters like Green/FVV, he finds them (or interchange with them for his own spot-up shot).

                        This also has been one of the best defensive seasons I've seen of Lowry. Not just with charges, but also post-defence on switches, transition defence, on-ball pressure defence on opposing guards (FVV has been like that too this year, so maybe that's credit to Nurse), overall team defence/switches, as well as swarming/doubling opposing bigs under our rim for steals (him and Green are a nightmare for opposing bigs down low unnder our rim) . Basically, if Lowry missed playoff time we'd be fucked. Just too impactful in too many different areas.

                          I find it hard to watch as well. Shows how amazingly good the pros are...

                            March Madness is the only college basketball I watch lol. I find the tournament to be incredibly entertaining, even though the basketball itself is obviously lower-quality compared to the NBA

                              He does have to hit some 3's though...

                                Great stuff! Guy's here have been on Nurse for his rotations. Confirms what posts are recommending!
