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.

    I think with the worse case sernerio he is Wiggins ....

    RJ's game is much more well rounded than Wiggins, and I agree with golden that RJ brings much better intangibles.

    I said Turner as a worst case as they are both roughly 6'7" ish point/playmaking forwards that do most things well except shoot. If he learns to shoot he'll be a lot better than ET.

      that's a strange comp, i don't see any resemblance in their games.

      he looks like evan turner to me, as a worst case.

              For his career it would great. DeRozan has issues with his playstyle but he made a lot of money for himself and became All-Star

                I think RJ will be as good as he wants to be . If he dedicates his summers as a pro to always working on his game and puts in the time then he has the tools to be great . DeRozan wasn't at RJ level when he was playing for USC and so RJ is already ahead of DRoz in the development stage . It will also depend on the organization that chooses him . God help him if the Cavs draft him ..

                It seems to me Wiggins was born with some specular athletic ability and he milked it to getting a max contract but his development has been marginal .

                    • I do think what happened to Duke should be noted .. You can't just send the 12 best NBA Canadian players ... You have to create a team ... Shooting and lock down defense is what will get you a win in the big games ..

                        Indeed, Canada hasn't shown any signs of national team system (like Serbia, Spain or Lithuania) in their previous appearances, which is essential in my opinion if you want to win these blitz championships. Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm just loooking at the most recent results.

                              Rana has coached the junior teams to fantastic results in recent world tournaments, including a gold at the U17s with Barrett as his star player. I keep harping on him as coach because the results suggest he's got a great understanding of how to bring players together and get them to play cohesively in this style of tournament. Plus he's coached most of the younger guys who will likely make the roster in past tournaments, and that familiarity should help.
