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.

  • Future of Canadian Basketball

    Let's be cheerful and look bright for the future of Canadian basketball. I believe we have a great future consider these players who will play for Canadian team.

    PG - Cory Joseph, Brady Heslip, Phil Scrub
    SG - Jamal Murry, Nik Stauskas, Xavier Rathan Mayes
    SF - Andrew Wiggins, Melvin Ejim, Andrew Doornekamp
    PF - Anthony Bennett, Andrew Nicholson, Dwight Powell
    C - Kelly Olynyk, Thon Maker, Robert Sacre

    Ofcourse we have young prospect in Andrew Nembhard and Rowan Barrett Jr to be considered for 2020 Olympics perhaps but the next Olympics of FIBA, our starting lineup are all NBA ready with two or possibly three being first pick overall. I'm so hyped about Canadian basket. I think we can beat most of the teams other than Team USA.

            None of the guys on the DLeague team are good enough for the Canadian national team. That's a good thing though, our talent level is high.

            • This would all fit pretty well in the Canada Basketball thread.

                With the new FIBA schedule it will be tough for NBA players to participate in a lot of the tourneys. We're going to need those D-League guys.

                  In any tournament schedule the key is developing chemistry ASAP and that is why maybe having the 905's having as many Canadians as possible is a good thing .. They will be used to playing for each other ...

                  This new FIBA Americas format is stupid ... The D-League has rules that go hand and hand with the NBA and FIBA is more Euro
                  ball rules ... Your asking players to go from one style of ball to another in a blink of an eye ..

                  Stop being trying to be like FIFA ...

                        If I am following the new FIBA rules correctly, Canada will not go to another worlds or Olympics until after 2030 and the format is changed. Very unfortunate but we will never be able to field even our B or C level teams for the comps.

                        • Thon Maker won't be representing Canada I don't think. But ya, things are certainly looking up for Canadian Hoops.

                            Can we have like a Canadian Jr's hockey senerio happen ... What I mean is times NHL teams will allow a player to play at tourney at Christmas cause they would benefit from the tourney ..

                            Canadians on a NBA roster but not getting much playing time may get to go too these games cause it would be good for their development.

                              I don't think that new FIBA schedule will happen. If pros can't play FIBA is dead. I know I won't give a flying fuck anymore.

                                If this new set up causes U.S not to qualify just one time then that will be the end of that ...
