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.

    started a topic Questions and Answers.

    Questions and Answers.

    Thought I would start something similar to Yahoo! questions.

    Often times as we are arm chair GMing, Coaching etc... we run across questions that are sometimes difficult to locate answers to.

    So I thought I'd make this a sticky thread for a few weeks...see if it catches on or not and go from there. This is more of a clarification thread then a discussion thread

    I'd appreciate it if we could stick to the following format:


    Hey what does it mean when someone is called a designated player?
    A: Designated Player
    "Each team in the NBA can nominate a rookie player to receive a "Designated Player" contract extension. A Designated Player is eligible for a 5 year contract extension, instead of being held to the standard 4 year restriction.[6] A team can only allocate a single Designated Player contract at any one time (if a team has already extended a rookie contract by using the Designated Player extension they cannot create a second Designated Player contract until the current contract expires, or until the player moves to a different team); however the CBA rules do allow teams to sign a second Designated Player from another team in addition to the one they already have. All teams are limited to having a maximum of two Designated Players contracted on their roster at any time (one which they have created from one of their own rookie contracts, and one which they have acquired from another team)."
    SOURCE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Designa...ignated_Player

    I will likely delete answers without a source, or if I can find a source, I will edit the post to include it

    Question:

    Which poster purposefully avoided posting negative criticisms in game threads for the last couple of games because they were at 1999 posts, and didn't want their 2000th post to be a critique of someone who plays the game at an infinitely better level than the poster ever could?

    2000th post!

    Half the front page on the new forum is stickies. Since no one has responded to this thread in 3 months I propose it be unstickied.
    Questions and Answers you say?

    If a sticky falls in the forest and nobodys around to give 2 shits, does it make a thread?

    I might be mistaken, but wasn't there a link or something on the main page which allowed you to access the ESPN affiliate sites for other NBA teams? Would be great to visit other teams' version of Raptors Republic...without having to search.

    Hey Dan. Whenever JV goes up for a dunk I find myself becoming tumescent. Is this abnormal?

    NBA does track this, but they've hidden a few of their (I guess) buggier stats pages and that's one that went, it seems.

    https://stats.nba.com/players/touches/?sort=GP&dir=1

    Can't navigate to that page from the drop-down menus, but I found the link. It does appear to have full season sampling (unlike some of the other stats pages they hid), but with it hidden, use the results at your own risk.

    Kinda random question: is there anyplace that keeps good time of possession stats? Looked briefly in google but didnt find anything really.

    NBA.com keeps some very detailed stats. I'd check there.

    Unfortunately the timing of the San Antonio game isn't as good...and this way I can be there for two games. Yes; the Westin was one of the times I encountered NBA teams, both the Clippers and the Thunder. Somewhere there is probably a basketball groupie site which has all the hotel info!

    Does anyone have knowledge of what hotels the Raptors stay in on the road? I'm planning to see them play in Houston and Dallas in January and thought it might be fun to stay in the same places. I've run into other teams (Pistons back in their heyday, Clippers, Thunder) by coincidence and it was amusing to run into players and coaches in the elevator/fitness room etc. At the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco I was trying to figure out why so many beautiful but somewhat slutty looking women were hanging around in the lobby (hooker convention?) when the elevator doors opened and there were Ben Wallace and another player I don't recall. Ah.....the Pistons are here.
    Going to Texas? Why not take in the Raptors visit there for the first Kawhi appearance in SA ... should be memorable. Re hotel try the Westin on Riverwalk ... I understand NBA teams stay there.
