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.

  • People in the game thread and the commentators on last nights game mentioned that Powell should play some PG. I don't know why this is being tossed around.

    While he may be a little undersized he is long and strong. Let him be a 2 guard and just plain concentrate on being the best 2 guard he can be.

      he's small and needs the ball like Bledsoe. might as well make him a PG. He doesnt have Demars size

          Something wrong with your percentages.

          But the first is DeRozan's second year in Summer League and the second is Powell's summer league thus far.
          Where is the error?

          And yes those are the players.

            I know whats up, I averaged everything against itself, so the percentages are an average of each games percentages as opposed to being calculated on the average of fga/m

            • I'll admit Powell has looked great, and I totally see the Bradley comparison.


              However, another guy I'd give him a comparison to, oddly enough, is Steve Francis, more due to the height than anything.

              • I'm enjoying Powell like anyone else, but he looks like a chucker that can play defense. Wish he passed some more.

                  • [QUOTEb=Superjudge;496558]Yep.

                    Perhaps demar Derozan should lace um up and plays a few minutes against these scrubs....maybe he'd get a steal or two and score 20 as well.....

                    or maybe, he'd have a out 9 steals and likely 40 points.[/QUOTE]

                    I have no doubt about that, he'd probably get 60 points...

                    But he'd take 120 shots

                      Everybody says height is unimportant but the advantage of a tall guard is their ability to "see over" defenses. Ross and his TRex arm don't help but his 6'7" height makes it harder for small guards to see over him at SG

                        what? he's been very efficient. Bruno was chucking last night. dude went like 1-8 from 3.

                        • Summer League is all about chucking. Guys are playing for their basketball lives. Chucking has to be expected.

                            He's not small, He is a legit 6'3" so he gets a 6'4" listing with shoes, he also sports a 6'11" wing span and a 215 pound frame. Puts him in the size category as Wade, Gerald Henderson, Eric Gordon, Oladipo, Bradley Beal, Dion Waiters, Marcus Thorton, and OJ Mayo to name a few.

                              Defensively Powell at PG with two larger wings works better. If he can run point you can avoid running KL and him. Most of the guys listed are considered great SG "for their size"

                                He is not and never will be a point guard on offense. I think he can guard the point guard position, but he is just not the type of player that will run a team. He has average size for the NBA off guard spot and that is where he should stay. No reason he can't play with Lowry, it is not like he is Lou Williams on Defence. Besides, he will be a second/third unit guy right now, he will play with Joseph and Wright in the back court, not Kyle.
