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.

      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.
      I dont put any stock in plus minus.

      LAst season was Ross' worst by far. Bone spurs probably didnt help. But his Defensive Rating was 110.

      He scored a 110 defensive rating,
      Luol Deng was a 109.
      Harris was 108
      Wiggins was 114

        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).
        If you asked Masai who he'd rather between Ross and Dd. He would first laugh and than ask you if you were being serious. Than he would pick DD.

        I don't want to hate on Ross cause I still believe in his talent but, its obvious that DD has more of an impact on winning compared to Ross.

        Ross should be worried. If Powell can become a reliable shooter. What does he do better than Powell?

            Neither one has much to write home about, that link is to advanced stat comparison between the two based on their careers to date.


            But it is hard to compare one to the other, because Demar has been given everything to succeed at his postion, and Terrence has been forced out of his natural role and position since he entered the league.

              Powells already got a better form on his jumper than Bradley had entering the league in his 2nd year.

                110 is a terrible defensive rating. Not sure if you were making that point, or suggesting it was decent.

                      You don't put stock in RPM, but use a stat that has Hansbrough and his 132 ORTG as our best offensive player last year. RPM isn't perfect by any means, but it confirms my eye test a lot more than other so called advanced stats.
                      If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

                        making a point, it isnt great at all, I agree, downright brutal.

                        But alot of poster clamouring for the replacement of Ross at all costs where once looking at deng or harris as replacements.

                        I think Ross is fine in a different role.

                        Perhaps a starting SG, probably backup sg, would liove to see what he can do beside a pg like Cujo, and a 3D like Carrol personally.

                        I would still love to trade Demar for Favors and let ross start

                                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.
