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.

      Still lots of runway left in the season.

      Celtics are winning on the back of a nightly heroic effort by Isaiah Thomas. It's awesome to watch but is it going to be sustainable over a 90 games stretch of reg season and playoffs ? Debatable..... The Whiz have come out of nowhere and have played well and have had the good fortune of no injuries so far...but it's hard to ignore that Brittle Brad Beal hasn't made it through a season in his career.

      The Lebrons haven't been as dominant as the August view said they would be which is surprising and viewed in the context of meeting expectations and where they actually are in the here and now might make Cleveland overrated.

      The Knicks are in death spiral yet again and the winner of team turmoil so far, the Bulls, are slowly sliding into the lottery.

      Jury still out on the Pacers and coach Bud has the Hawks in the dance.

      The Pistons and Hornets and Bucks have all underachieved so far. The Bucks can't catch a break. As Middleton comes back Parker goes out for a while. Hope that knee responds well.

      Framed against their hot start the Raps six week skid has put them in the somewhat disappointing category. Peeled back a layer or two the Raps are still ten games over 500 while playing through the inevitable injuries that teams all face and have played through the the bulk of the schedule imbalances that all teams..except maybe Cleveland gets from the NBA schedule maker. A 20 and 10 finish with their fair share of injury concerns behind them gets them 2nd or 3rd and that would bode well going into the post season.

      The Heat are a mirage. The Nets are bad beyond belief and the Magic are an epic fail. The Hinkies are still setting up for next year as they have been for the last four years running and between spurts of actual winning ball show they are still a work in progress. A lot of work.

        Hey DanH you are one of the most knislegeable posters on those site but do you think you might want to reconsider your preseason assessment of Celtics?
        Nope. The Celtics have a +3.2 net rating on the year. Last year they had a +3 net rating. They are getting lucky with their winning rate compared to their net rating. They were 5th in the league in defence last year, and have dropped to 20th.

          It's clear the most overrated team in the East is the Raptors, lol.

          56 wins is such a pipe dream.

            I agree. The Raptors aren't as bad as their current slide and the Celtics aren't as good as their curren run.

                I thought it's universally understood that the Knicks are now the worst team in pro sports, lol.

                  They are. The only ones who don't know it are the Knocks fans themselves.
