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 need to start watching him more closely because I definitely know he's a good defender but I don't always see the amazingness most people do.
    He had his ups and downs (mostly in the Bucks series), but Danny Green's positional awareness on defence is typically elite. He never leaves his feet unless it's for extremely well-timed blocks at the rim, including chase-down blocks (he's the leading league shot-blockers among guards last I looked). On the perimeter it feels like he's got an internal micro-clock that knows how to close out and take away space from shooters (maybe because he's a shooter himself and knows how to disturb guys release point/time). He's one of the best Harden defenders I've seen

    His team D is also above average most of the time, he never gets caught in no man's land, and seem to know how to seal away cracks that start to form on our D as the opposing offfence swings the ball from side to side. He's usually excellent at anticipating offensive plays and rotating to the proper spot on switches. He also has a knack for disturbing post up/inside actions (him and Lowry are terrific at trying to grab the ball down low when an opposing C tries to work inside against our bigs).

    You're right that it's not always like that though. Green's getting up there in age, and I notice that when he's gassed this crispiness is not there, and sometimes the fouls come. Just on eye-test I find it that this happens when chasing guards that are either young runners (eg Brogdon), or guards that move a ton without the ball (eg Redick). On iso-leaning guards (eg Bledsoe, Harden, DJ Augustin) he's typically a high-end defender.

      Interesting. I'm going to really watch him in Game 5. These are things I really don't notice but it's great to hear. I guess I just always take in his silly fouls and don't really notice all the good he's doing on that end
      I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.
