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.

    Maybe GLF is rubbing off on me, but I can see us struggling on offence like we have in the first 2 games. In game 1 we scored 107 due to Kawhi and Pascal shooting something like 80% and scoring 74 of those points. Philly is a long team and not many of our guys would challenge Embiid in the paint. Kyle goes through crazy shooting slumps. Fred isn't quick enough where a defender has to give him space when he's on the perimeter. Danny has been very disappointing. I don't know if I have the confidence in our 3-9 guys to score 40-50 points per game.
    well guys 3 to 9 averaged about 70 ppg in the regular season, so if they cant score 40 to 55 that's on them, not philly

    Actually, it's a lot of solace. Hard to imagine going 3 for 15 on three pointers, with so many open shots. Philly did almost as poorly but most of the shots they took were contested. That means the Raptors defense was working, and theirs wasn't. That is what is needed. Once Nurse pulls his head out of his nether regions everything will be fine.
    our field goal % this playoffs: 46, 48, 45, 53, 48, 52, 36

    one of these things is not like the others. Easy to see why we lost, and it still came down to the final possessions. I'm not too worried

    The good thing is that Philly's "high powered offense" was relatively held in check again. We couldn't have played any worse offensively, yet were in a position to tie the game late. Small solace moving onto Game 3.

    But Lowry is way better than Fisher ever was.

    Odom was a better rebounder, and had much better court vision, I'd say. He was more of a "heady" player. I think Odom is definitely underrated these days. Dude could ball.

    But Siakam has a better first step and is more explosive, and is much better man on man defender.

    I think the comp only exists because they're both tall and lanky and can dribble some. Lol


    Honestly, I struggle to find a true good comp for Siakam. I think he's pretty damn unique.
    Siakam is Giannis if Giannis wasnt on HGH

    Fisher/Lowry is pretty much bang on. But seriously, I love the Siakam as an uber athletic Lamar Odom comp.

    I've heard that comp a few times now. Maybe I'm underrating Odom but even at this stage I'd say give me Siakam by a landslide.

    Reminiscent of the 2004 Pistons, 2009 Lakers and 2014 Spurs. Every 5 years a team with a DPOY candidate that isn't that star studded wins the title?
    I was thinking about the other day how crazy the legend of kawhi will be if we were to defeat GSW in the finals. It would be the 2nd time he defeated one the modern day superteams on their way to a 3-peat. And probably the best 2 teams in terms of top end talent since kobe shaq lakers. The parallels are kinda crazy as Durant would likely leave to rebuild his image much like Lebron did when the spurs dethroned them... This is story book stuff. So it's defiantly happening.

    I like the 09 laker comp the more I consider it

    Kobe = Kawhi
    Odom = siakam
    Gasol = hmm this one is a little tougher
    Fisher = Lowry
    Ariza = green

    Wish we could go up against that Orlando team they faced in the finals. We'd destroy them.
    Bring on all the 2019 teams
