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.

    Keys to the Game:

    + For gods sake, rebound the Ball.
    + Contain PJ3. Only real Offensive Threat.
    + Amir. Please come back. I almost didn't recognize our defense without Amir.


    Key Match-Ups

    vs.

    If Demar can stay within the System, and use his teammates, there shouldn't be anyone that can stop him. Except himself.

        Joey your last line nailed it.

        Play within the system and step up when your team needs you.

        That is all I am looking for.

        Play for the name on the front not the name On the back.

            It should happen.

            Best ball of the playoffs last year was when that happened.

            The 3rd and first part of 4thQ are a much more recent example.

                    Which is a great cause my fury.

                    He has experienced the losing of ISO ball both with (last year) and without Rudy (preGay).

                    I can only see three options:
                    1) he is stupid
                    2) he is selfish
                    3) he is trying too hard.


                    I'm praying it is #3

                          If we lose this game I will be very concerned. Raps should/have to beat this team.

                            Hopefully Brooklyn can give them a long triple OT game, then lose. F**K Brooklyn.

                              all the more reason that this is a *must win* or we just suck.
