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.

    Everything Pascal Siakam

    Pascal deserves his own thread as well. For a 27th pick, it's incredible that we can basically pencil him in for significant production with the 2nd unit this year. He's one of the best open court rim runners in the league, has a motor that won't quit, and comes across as a first class teammate/young man. The big question is whether he can be an impact defender in just his 2nd season.

    He doesn't get enough talk.

    "Even then, Siakam wasn't even a starter for a ton of his games and his numbers this year are so astronomically good, they bring him up to Bosh's level."
    Yup, that's the part that most people haven't even realized yet.

    That's not fair.

    Chris Bosh when he was here was the MAIN focus of the defence. And the second best player during his time here was who? Calderon?


    Bosh's numbers are mostly his Miami Heat playoff games when he was in the exact same role as Siakam (beta PF to an alpha SF). It's an excellent comparison. There's really only 6 games out of the 89 that hurt Bosh (his 1st playoff as a Raptor). Even then, Siakam wasn't even a starter for a ton of his games and his numbers this year are so astronomically good, they bring him up to Bosh's level.

    Bosh rarely got double teamed. Bosh also had the offensive plays run through him. Siakim is at times fighting for the scraps. He's like JYD with offensive skills.

    I don't think he's a guy that you can build around to win a championship.

    Bosh in his prime was 10x better player than Siakam and they couldn't win anything with him as "the guy".

    And why does Siakim have to be "the guy" if he stays?

    To be fair, we can't compare Bosh in his prime to Siakam in his (not yet met) prime and that's the point. Pascal just turned 25 last month and we all know he started late....he could be a 20+ and 8 guy next season.
    Let's look anyway:

    I don't think you are wrong. No one knows what Kawhi is thinking, but he seems like a pretty reasonable and down to earth guy. Here are the factors I think he takes into consideration as to where he will go next season. In no particular order (might be a fun game to try and rank them in order of importance).
    • Chance to win a championship (does he want to just play for the Warriors or a team like that, and take the easy route)
    • Personal health and prolonging his career
    • Money (salary and endorsement opportunities)
    • Quality of the organisation
    • Quality of life for his family
    • Fit with his teammates (speaks to the quality of the organisation going forward)
    • The fans
    • Ability to NOT be in the spotlight every place he goes
    • General lack of bullshit
    Feel free to add factors, then in a couple of days I will revisit and rank what I believe is the correct order of importance.
    1. Personal health and prolonging his career
    2. Quality of life for his family
    3. Chance to win a championship (A real, earned one, not a handed-down one like Durant's)
    4. Quality of the organisation/Team mates
    5. Money
    6. Ability to NOT be in the spotlight every place he goes
    7. General lack of bullshit
    8. The fans

    I hear you. However the speculation will probably continue.
    Sure but let it be the media that continues while Kawhi keeps ignoring
