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.

          Canada loses 69-65. Brady Heslip is again the leading scorer with 16. Sacre had 12 points plus 8 rebounds. Olynyk threw up a goose egg. Dario Saric had 14 points and 6 rebounds in 22 minutes.

          • no one seem to be logging any heavy minutes, seems like the trip so far has been a good one for the program.

                Not trying to be negative, but I'm not really sure how much real and valuable experience we can get out of these "friendlies". We're playing teams who are tuning up for the world championships. Obviously, our opponents are not playing all out to win and neither are we. I read somewhere that Jay and Steve Nash wanted to spread out minutes, but the problem with that is that isn't what happens in the real game when you're trying to win. And we also aren't seeing the real tactics that teams experienced in international play use when they are actually trying to win. I suppose there is some value to having guys build chemistry and getting to know the system of play. But IMO, we're really paying the price for sucking badly last year at the FIBA Americas tournament and not qualifying for the worlds this year.

                  Worst case scenario, the guys playing get to see the European/International style of ball, the international reffing, and the coaches get to try different combos against real teams competing. I don't think any of those teams want to lose against Canada, so the intensity of competition should be high.

                  • Triano rested 4 of 5 NBA players in today's 74-59 loss. Canada played the second of 6 games on consecutive days. Andrew Nicholson led Canada with 16 points.
