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 been thinking of away to not end up like the atlant hawks. Give me your thoughts

    I said it many times over the last 5 years, I honest don't think we can win with derozan....so here goes
    Last year I said at draft time we needed caris levert. Went back and forth about his injury and I was right once again. I wanted him to replace demar.

    Trade
    Brook Lopez
    Caris levert

    For
    Derozan
    Jakob poeltl

    Sign
    Serge ibaka
    klay Thompson

    Draft
    Derrick white

    Install a real offense

    Derozan going nowhere. MU and MLSE are heavily invested in him. I just can't see any plausible scenario where he won't be in a Raptor uniform next year. He represents how far we have come as a city regarding keeping/attracting basketball talent north of the border.

      LOL why would Klay Thompson leave GSW?

      You can get a green card in Cali... I guess it wlil be legal here soon. You can also win 4 more championships.....

        1) You weren't 'right' about the Raptors being better off with Caris Levert over DeRozan - that's absurd.
        2) Lopez and Levert for DeRozan and Poetl would be an abhorrent trade for the Raptors.
        3) Klay Thompson is not a free agent for another two summers and would likely not leave GSW for Toronto.

        Other than that you nailed it.

            Can you at least admit that you aren't psychic and don't have a clue about what's going to happen in the future?

                This is a shining example of a false dichotomy. Just because it's tough to see a DeRozan led team knocking off the Cavs or Warriors in the next few seasons doesn't mean that you go out and move off him the first chance you get.

                It's tough to see any team knocking off those two teams in their respective conferences after watching these playoffs, so where do we draw the line with the "You can't win with this guy!" narrative. Should Rockets accept that they can't win with Harden? The Pacers with Paul George? The Wizards with John Wall? The Jazz with Hayward? The Spurs with Kawhi? The Thunder lost in the first round with Westbrook this season - time to move on? The Pelicans have made the playoff one time since they got Anthony Davis (and got swept in the first round when they did) - so I'm sure you're advocating that they trade him this summer, right?

                And that's to say nothing about how insane the thought process is behind your notion that the Raptors cannot possibly win with DeRozan....

                .... so let's trade for him Caris Levert.

                  What I see is before Casey we ran sets he wasn't very good. Atl, nets, Ind, cavs we are basically waiting for other teams to have horrible years. Joe Johnson, Paul George , lebron James all eat his food. He gets shut down too easy. His lack of deep threat eliminates inside game for other players, he is too ball dominate. We are going back to running plays, have u ever seen demar play off the ball? His BB IQ sucks seriously it's very bad. Every single team to win a championship moves the rock not just pass the ball for the sake of passing the ball but moving with purpose. U can't win with him

                      That was a false dichotomy, but this is a false equivalency.

                      DeMar is not in the same conversation as Harden, Kawhi, or Westbrook. Those guys are MVP candidates. He's also not as good as Paul George or Anthony Davis.

                      These are all foundational franchise players. DeMar is very, very good, but he's simply not that guy.

                      Not to mention that very few of those teams are going to be in the kind of salary cap hell we're likely to face following this summer.

                      That all said, OP's plan is flawed for all the other reasons you pointed out in your other post.

                          Then why didn't you answer the question BEFORE it was asked?
                          If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

                            DeRozan and Poeltl for Caris freakin' LeVert and Brook Lopez?!

                            GTFO with this garbage trade/thread....if you want to propose a big change, at least make it appealing.
