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 dont know if we do..I'd personally rather have Jamal Murray and possibly rj barrett as the go to guys
    A sit down with Wiggins maybe required . I say the more the better ...... But like Nick Nurse did in the playoffs you shorten the bench and you go with the guys who have it going that night but that doesn't mean if your not playing you are sulking . The positive for the players is everyone has a blank slate with Nurse and doesn't have any favorites or any past bad experiences with players

    Of course we do. C'mon guys. We need all the real players we can get. And when properly motivated with proper coaching, I think he could be huge for us.
    This is a chance for Nick to get to know all the Canadian players, and go through some tough times together. I could possibly have an impact on players entering free agency. Wonder if he even considered that.

    What's with the hate to Wiggins?! I'd love it if he plays for team Canada.

    The Nick Nurse/Raptors effect is happening.

    This is one of those things that when other guys see who is in the lineup, it helps them step forward as well. Feel bad for the guys who played through the years when support was less, and who have to give up their spots when guys who didn't show step forward, but I imagine it's similar in other sports.

    On another note, just imagine you are a young player watching on TV or even being in Toronto for the Championship parade today. Man, that is a memory that will get locked into your brain forever. That has to solidify in some young brains that basketball is going to be their serious sport. Play some other stuff for fun maybe, but put the serious work in on your shooting and handles and defense. Especially with all the two way players on the Raptors who are heralded as much for their "D" as for their points. This bodes well for the future of the sport.

    Pumped for the future as well as for today.

    I think we do. We're thin at SF, especially with Brooks probably being out. Hopefully with his experience since 2015, he's going into this with the perspective that he can be a useful cog in a winning team, rather than being the centerpiece. I think he'd welcome that opportunity, and I would expect that Barrett had that conversation with him.

    I’m really excited for the World Cup in September, hopefully we can get our full squad out there!
    Well it's a official . The Canadian team's coach will have " head coach of a NBA Champion " on his resume . With all the great things being said by everyone about how he coached means he will have the respect of everybody at the camp ..

    I don't expect a full squad but if at least get our top tier talent to show up like Murray and Barrett or Wiggins than we should be damn hard to beat.

    Kelly Olynyk is our Fiba Scola.

    Expect a surge in Canadian talent entering the NBA draft in 8-12 years. Lol
    It's amazing Canada currently have 5 players in the NBA draft that could potentially be all drafted in the first round.

    Wouldn't have been a possibility without the Raptors organization being around.
