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.

    Watching LaVine play he is a modern PG.

    Very good shooter off the dribble and he has very good court vision.

    Also not strong enough to play against SGs

    He takes some bad pullup shots and he's not good at them. How much strength do you really need as a SG? Also, 20 yrs old.

    Westbrook out of UCLA was in the same situation. Even now he isn't a natural PG but people forget how his first few years went in the NBA.
    Westbrook is 3 inches shorter than LaVine so there was more of a necessity for that transition.

    Rubio is a no-D Rondo.

      Rubio is an excellent defender. At present day he's probably a better defender than rondo

        Ha not every Euro is a bad defender. He's actually solid.

        Can't really rank defensive ability by PM. CoJo is at -0.44 (even though he's better than a number of guys above him) because Lowry has been so good on D this year.

          Not euro bias, just not up to date on Rubio.

          I follow LaVine closely because I have him in RR Dynasty and because he's awesome.

            He scores better as a SG, but distributes much better and rebounds significantly better as a PG.

            Better net rating as a SG though.
            Ya I've seen him have his best games at PG because he is good at getting people involved. At SG he floats a lot and doesn't impact the game as much.

            Looking at this page says he shoots 49% after 7+ dribbles (ie after dribbling the ball up the court). That's pretty good.

            I really like his passing ability though. Very underrated floor general already

            And he gets wrecked by opposing SG's right now

              As far as defensive stats, they're all flawed...

              Ross and CoJo aren't great in DRPM, but they look amazing in opponent production, DFG% and DRtg.

              Rubio's DFG% isn't bad, but nothing amazing.

                Rubio also plays in the West against a gauntlet of sick point guards

                  Being fair, PG is a loaded position in both conferences. Not really that many nights off in the league.
