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.

      I don't think FVV's issues are with the length specifically so much as completely incorrect usage. As they have been all year, with the length aspect only exaggerating those issues.

      I was just saying, the quotes there do not reflect a "playoffs are different" position, they are commenting on the length of the 76ers.

      That said, the Bucks are not the freaky length team the 76ers are. In certain spots, yes, but not at guard. And they love leaving shooters wide open - if FVV struggles there, it will be because he's being used wrong, not because of the opposition's length. Which is quite possible, he's been used wrong most of the year and the entire playoff run.

      In any case, really hoping for an OG return if we make it to facing the Bucks, really reduces the number of minutes you have to rely on any single backup player for, and may completely remove Norm from the rotation.

        Do you actually watch games? The Bucks aren't leaving wide open shooters. They are closing out hard and the Celtics are rushing their shots, or having to pump fake and step in for a mid-range against a secondary defender. Not an expert, but I think that contributed somewhat to the Celtics shooting 20 something percent from 3. If you can't accept that playoff defense is different and more intense than the regular season, then there's no discussion to be had here.

          The Celtics have gotten 20 wide open threes per game in the 2nd round on which they are shooting 40%.

            Why do you even reply Dan? What's the point? I mean when you are discussing a point with someone who is talking out of their ass?

            • Tonight was like a redemption game for Fred. I don't think he was a minus contributor. Didn't try to overplay in his role. Played within himself. Stayed out of the trees. Good on him.
