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.

            come one now, Ross plays hard.

            Just cause he isnt able to do the things fans hoped or coaching tried to get him to do doesnt mean he doesnt try.

            Ross guarded opposing pgs-sf. and well for most of the season, up until his ankle got messed up

              He reminds me of a Demar Derozan but with better defense.

              If this keeps this up there is no way he doesn't make the team. I'm trying not to be excited here but I like everything about this pick so far.

              I think skill wise he is ahead of Demar coming into the league.

              His defense is far superior
              He has a better form on his shot
              He is a better ballhandler

              he isnt as athletic

              • Its summer league. Norman Powell could be the next Jerryd Bayless but a little bigger. If Norman Powell makes the the team the person who should be worried is Terrence Ross.

                    Bayless was a 1st round lottery pick (11th overall). I'd gladly take that outcome for #46 overall.

                      Ross did NOT guard well most of the season. Or the previous season. Over and above the eye test, take a look at his RPM defensive numbers. Out of 85 SF's Ross finished 85th, and it wasn't even close. He was in the bottom 10% the previous season as well. And he doesn't even have the excuse of guys like DD or Lowry who expend a ton of energy at the offensive end.
                      If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

                          terrence has nothing to worry about at all. A certain soon to be ridiculously overpriced, net negative producing, poor defensive, poor shooting shooting guard should possibly be though.

                          Trade season is still open until February.....

                            Really? I disagree. He was slow on D, afraid of contact, and showed little hustle.

                            Powell may not amount to much, but I'm fairly sure he drove hard to the basket through defenders more than Ross has in his Raps career (might be a slight exaggeration).

                            • Powell is a superior athlete than DD.

                              • Bayless is a poor comparison

                                i see him more as a poor man's Tony Allen like Matt said or a KJ Daniels with more upside
