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

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.

    Right now, the refs will not ruin it big, the NBA is trying to promote its market, so it is not for the NBA sake to mess with the officiating, but If Raptors went that deep in the playoff, the officials will not hesitate for a second to hurt us. No team outside USA is supposed to win the NBA.
    If the Raptors don't let up on their defensive intensity and get a regular Kawhi performance along with solid play from Siakam and Lowry we should be fine. Danny is due for a big performance.

    Was watching the last minute of Game 3 and one thing really stuck out. With 12 seconds to go, FVV is in to guard Ross. On the inbound pass, they switch and FVV ends up on Vucevic. Our smallest player boxing out their centre. I question why he vs say Powell is in the game as it put us at a huge disadvantage? Trust?

        In what sense? I guess he has potential - which is why hes in the NBA. But I'm looking at his stats and hes worst than a lot of players...
        It's not a serious statement of talent evaluation, it's more of a loose ego boost. Imagine if Casey said "Thon reminds me of a young John Henson." Both tall, skinny shot blockers, but it basically is like saying he's destined to be a journeyman.

        Remember also that Thon is younger now than Pascal was when Pascal debuted in the league (ignoring the rumours about Thon's age). KG has also raved about Thon. I doubt Thon becomes the monster that Pascal is now... but I'm not going to take a throwaway compliment as a serious projection.

          I tell you something, Nurse is a rocky coach in terms of the playoff, but I give him alot of credit for the way he organized our perimeter and interior defense. His main problem is that some players are not playing to their supposed level each game, one game Lowery, another game Kawahi, and another game Green. This gives Nurse limited options.
          On the other hand, protecting the perimeter required fast small players and that the tax we need to pay.

              The most important question: Who are the refs?

                Is this what some fans want Nurse to do?

                    Yeah... never understood it. Doesn't actually do anything except make the refs hate you.

                      Obviously there's a difference between working the refs with some calculated outbursts and going full Artest

                        Actually they are rated #1 in many aspects.Bucks are are a very tough team right now, very dynamic, very solid bench, huge threat from the perimeter and an amazing rebounding team.
                        As I said, We will have our hands full.
                        Yeah but we already knew that. The point I was making is that sweeping an 8th seed Pistons who was without their best player doesn't add or subtract to that, we already knew it. I'd like to see how they handle Boston. If they just sail through them, then yeah that will tell me they not only had a great regular season, but also have what it takes to dominate in the playoffs too.

                          My guess would be trust, whether warranted or not. Fred is a player that tends to make fewer mistakes then Powell. Even if him (Fred) is not doing much on the court as a point guard, the perception is that it will be less likely he will make loose-cannon drives coast to coast or get into some bad decision makings Powell has had before. In fairness to Norm though, he's gotten a lot better at controlling his decisions and "letting the game come to him". A lot of it came with when his role on the team became more defined, and he stopped going from starter to totally out of the rotation then back to starter again, then back as 9th man (that can be hard on any player)

                          On this series in particular, I'd prefer to see more Norm/McCaw vs FVV.

                              I'm fine with sacrificing Bobby Webster. Not quite sure what he does anyway.
