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.

  • Raptors starting line up

    What is the raptors starting line up going into the season now that we have Kawhi.?

    We have the potential to be the best defence in the league.
    Do we play Kawhi at 3 or 2?
    How do we hide JV against permittee bigs ?

    We could probably play man to man

    Lowry
    Kawhi
    Pascal
    Ibaka
    JV

    Delon
    Kawhi
    Pascal
    Og
    Ibaka

        I’d be surprised if we didn’t just insert Kawhi into Demar’s spot.
        So Lowry-Kawhi-OG-Ibaka-JV

        I wouldn’t mind seeing us move OG to the 4 and starting Green though.
        Lowry-Green-Kawhi-OG-JV
        Yeah, I think these are the two most likely lineups.

        Siakam may be able to outplay Serge for a spot, but I doubt it to start the year.

        We'll see if any more minor moves happen though. Masai could trade a wing for a big. Or maybe miraculously unload Ibaka's contract and actually get a useful player or two in return.

          I'm all in on Lowry-Green-Kawhi-OG-JV, backed up by the revamped Bench Mob (with Ibaka in Poeltl's place)
          The name's Bond, James Bond.

            Ibaka should definitely be moved even if its for scraps, do not like his offensive game at all and his defense is spotty at best

              IMO it should be:

              JV
              OG/Siakam
              Kawhi
              Green
              Lowry

                The problem is you may not even get scraps without attaching something. I'm ok attaching something if we can actually get a useful player or two back, but not ok attaching something just to dump him.

                Not sure he has a good enough attitude for coming off the bench, but we can try and find out.

                  I think it will likely be Lowry-OG-Kawhi-Serge-JV, but I could see Green in for Serge.

                  As the roster currently stands, Serge playing backup C kind of makes sense, but I expect a move or two that will make that unnecessary.

                  The rotation question for me that is hardest to solve is how to get both Miles and Green minutes, assuming they don't slide Serge to a full time backup role.

                      I'd be surprised if they used Pascal as a full time bench C, though we could see that for spurts. It's certainly one way to fit all the rotation pieces in. But I expect they go a different direction.

                        Yea I agree with all of this.

                        I think if you view JV and Ibaka as being center’s only that don’t play together it helps balance out the roster. View OG and Siakam as your 4’s and it’s easier to make it work.

                        But yea, there’s still not enough minutes to go around. As it stands CJ is really the only below average defender in my view. And he can opt out in a year. Maybe he gets moved before the deadline.

                          Yeah, but imagine the open looks he gets when there are four other players on the floor that no one can cheat off of.

                            Attach Norm and some team will definitely bite. Might be able to fetch a backup C and rotation guard

                              can only move him if it matches contracts... and we will almost certainly have to give up a pick.. it's better if he can come off the bench at the 5... or even if he starts, give siakam most of the minutes, it seems like siakam is ready to play 30-35 mins a game now.
