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 would like to see this kind of rough minutes next game:

    gasol - 38
    siakam - 40
    Kawhi - 40
    Green - 36
    Lowry - 40

    Ibaka - 10
    Powell - 14
    McCaw- 12
    fred - 8

    now, I know we wont see it. Ibaka and fred have too long of a leash with this coach. Just my thoughts. The 76ers are not an ideal matchup for either one of those 2 men. In a perfect world OG could take some minutes
    If Ibaka plays he needs to play with Lowry more.
    All man. All amazing.

      Agreed. He needs to be our scorer "off the bench". Tether Marc to Embiid, but tether Lowry to Ibaka.

        Nurse has been a breath of fresh air for most of this season. A stark contrast from the rigid, unimaginative Casey.

        But this outright refusal to tether Gasol with Embiid is infuriating. There is no reason for it. None.

          Yeah, something like this as a starting framework. McCaw should get a crack at FVV's minutes. Basic concepts are: (1) tether Gasol to Embiid, (2) keep a minimum of 3 starters on the floor at all times - preferably 4 & (3) Kawhi & Siakam play with FVV as bailout scoring options. (4) Ibaka takes the backup PF spot, instead of Kawhi to give Siakam a brief rest.

          • This series feels like the perfect series for McCaw. You put him on Redick, Butler or that Ennis kid and they won't get hot like that. He won't score much on the other end, but then again neither will Fred

            Fred should play only the roughly 10 minutes Lowry sits imo.

              In game adjustments were supposed to be one of the key upgrades of Nurse over Casey. Brett Brown made some great, but not totally unexpected, chess moves. Nurse had a perfect "that's why they brought me here" spotlight moment last night, and he didn't capitalize.

                I like the idea of giving Ibaka some minutes at the 4 to keep him happy and engaged.

                actually against this team I'd argue hes back to being better suited as a power forward than he is as a center. wish we had moose and they didn't right now..

                  Yeah I know Moose is not gonna have another game like that, but it's ironic that we basically swapped him for Eric Moreland as our third C, to save a bit of cash, then Moreland shows to be unplayable. While Moose drops 10pts & 5 boards in 11 minutes on us, on a close playoff game, being arguably more effective then Embiid ( who had 12 pts and 8 boards on 32 minutes). The universe has a way of getting back at you sometimes.

                    I'm still waiting for my Patrick mccaw game. I believe on the young buck and has some skills that are very valuable to playoff ball. he will have his Norman Powell moment one of these games I just know it. make me proud crow!

                      Most of us agree now. I think Fred to me has lost some minutes for the next game, unless Nurse is that infatuated with his intagiblezz that I frankly haven't seen much of lately, even going back to the Orlando series Fred has been a passenger

                        Ya I guess it's too late to expect anything from Fred at this point. This has confused me since we traded for Gasol. It was obvious what Ibaka needs on offense (someone who will pick and pop with him). I figured him and Fred or Norm would have that tandem but it's like those guys have no clue how to play with their own teammates. Not saying Ibaka is completely faultless cause he misses some very makeable shots (especially in game 2), but at the same time it's like this team has a limited capacity for the plays they can run. As soon as Ibaka is on the floor, the first or second offensive option should be running that play with him. Fred shouldn't be allowed to shoot until he runs a few of those with Serge. And Norm has shown flashes of being a decent passer/play maker so I'm not sure while Nick Nurse isn't utilizing those skills to get add some more structure when the bench guys are on the floor.

                          The only positive I see from Fred is that he's probably our best JJ chaser. Even Danny sometimes struggles to get around screens, etc as JJ is running around. Fred's pretty good at staying close to his man. I think Nurse likes that.. and Danny can't play 48 minutes.

                          I'd rather have Fred over McCaw. McCaw has no offense.. at least Fred can shoot (and did in Orlando). But he needs to stay away from Serge. If Serge is playing.. you have to have him play with Lowry at all times. Fred can play with Marc. Marc/Fred have pretty decent chemistry from what I saw in the regular season.

                            Yeah I really don't like Lowry off ball next to Fred against the Sixers. Maybe against the Celtics it might work but the Sixers are simply too big and long.

                                Fred can chase all he wants, but he doesn't have the length or athleticism to get a strong contest on the shot. His offense is mind-numbingly bad. 98 ORTG on only 14% USG should not even be possible for an NBA rotation player. McCaw would have to try really hard to be worse than that if you actually played him with decent players in non-garbage time, like Fred.
