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.

  • Grizzlies really schooled Masai this year. Revitalized their old, tired roster with young Raptors.

      That's Stack and now he's assistant coach with Grizzlies
      Exactly. It's not a coincidence Bruno look like a competent NBA player out there. Bruno needed tough love. Masai got hosed overeaching for this kid cause he missed out on Giannis a year ago . Raptors spend millions on Bruno in salary and coaching and other than getting the 905 much sooner as a result, the payoffs never came.

      Let it be a lesson for other players Raptors overreach to get in the draft. Be ready to work your butt off if it means you are getting millions of dollars as a result of drafting you early. No matter if he is 18 Years old from some far a way place they dont even have a running toilet.

        I am hoping Gasol is just fucking arpund before the playoffs and just taking it easy cause that will piss me off if he isnt a double double machine come playoffs time on top of his passing game. We probably going to face detroit in the first round so we need the big man on top of his game!
        Sorry man, I'd like to see that too but it won't happen. If he never averaged a double double even on his all-star years, he won't do it at age 34 on a team that's already stacked.

        The best thing for us imo is to use his and FVV's playmaking to run the second unit with OG & Norm shooting and cutting (+ another starter anchoring it) . Solve the black-hole bench lineups. Bring Ibaka's scoring, rebouding and rim protection back to the starters.

              Damn....I hate to tell you this but he's washed man
              Yeah kinda noticed on the first day he was here, dude doesn't look he hits the gym or stay's lean and at 34 years old that's a bad sign. The old Euro type players never cared for the gym culture as much as the new generation (although Poeltl still looks like he needs to pump iron so it isnt the case for everyone).

              • With another Memphis win they are dangerously close to losing their protected pick to the Celtics.
                Dont be surprised if JV slips on a banana peel and needs rest.

                shutting down Bruno in order to tank would be the funniest thing ever.

                  Wright never got a fair shake under Nurse. It seems like once Nurse labels a player as being tough and having high BBIQ (e.g. FVV), they can do no wrong, despite obviously physical limitations. In the case of Delon, it was opposite, he could do no Wright.

                  • Saw a bit of that OKC/Grizzlies game last night. Memphis plays so loose. They really look like a G-League team. Make a lot of mistakes but even through those mistakes are successful. I don't see them getting out of the lottery next year with this team.. but they will be a fun team to watch. And a team most other teams won't want to play.

                    As for OKC man.. they are really a two man team. I can't believe we lost to them. Their bench sucks.

                      Grizzlies have an insane amount of injuries right now (JJJ, Kyle Anderson, Dillon Brooks, Avery Bradley, CJ, Conley, Noah). They're a good defensive team and their biggest problem was getting efficient scoring, especially from the wings. JV's efficiency at high usage has helped to boost the overall efficiency a lot, which is one reason why they're winning games. Also, his rebounding and improved defense is helping them them close games.

                      Grizz need to dump inefficient guys like Dillon Brooks, CJ and Avery Bradley and upgrade the SG position, to have: JV, JJJ, Anderson, SG, Conley. That would be an efficient starting 5, with Bruno, Delon, Rabb, Dorsey and Noah off the bench. That's a fringe playoff team in the West these days.

                      • The Raps were successful using the guys they had the way they did, parting ways with guys like Bruno and Delon had everything to do with depth and cap management and not much to do with how good the outgoing guys were/weren't. Raps couldn't keep everybody and made it a priority to keep certain guys like OG and Pascal. Guys like Norm were already paid and not so easy to move, that's just a timing issue.

                        That the Toronto Grizzlies are doing so well is a testament to the depth, development, and drafting ability this organization has. This is what good teams do - have more quality players than they can use/pay. It's a good "problem" to have.

                        The deal that's still up in the air is Gasol/JV. Sure hope the playoffs prove it to be a positive.

                        • It should also be noted that the vast majority of organizations in the NBA cannot win and develop young players at the same time. It is virtually impossible and the fact that the Raptors have done a pretty good job of both is impressive. Ultimately though, experience and gravitas wins in the playoffs and adding guys like Gasol and Lin took precedence over hoping Delon Wright could put together two good games in a row.

                            Ironically, Gasol hasn't put together 2 good games in a row as a Raptor. And for Lin, it's 2 quarters. lol.
