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.

Are we overvaluing OG as a prospect?

      Otto Porter, with slightly better D, is a realistic expectation. Before he got paid, that is.

        Huge wingspan. Something like 7-3.

          OG, FVV, Norm, Delon are all fine. Were mostly heroes last year, they have not gotten worse. They've been getting written about around here like they're Joey Graham or Jamario Moon. They aren't.

          Young guys will have some ups and downs, roster and rotation changes and injury issues have thrown guys off a bit and that's all. You don't give up on solid players every couple months depending on latest trends.

            OG is adapting to playing way less minutes and being in-n-out of the lineup. I'd give him a pass for now.

                Or maybe you're just wrong and need to chill. The boy is 21 in his second year, he'll be just fine. It should only be a worry or a problem for people who thought he would be an all star or superstar player like Kawhi. He is most likely not going to be that and that should have never been the expectation. A solid 3 and D guy who can play the 3 and the 4 and maybe even become a consistent starter on a good team in this league is good enough for me. Now if you can get an all star in a package for him go ahead but other than that I wouldn't give up on him that easily. Especially knowing how good our development team is.
                I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.

                  Maybe you are right right now he is playing out of his comfort zone. That much is clear

                    He needs a offseason off ball handling and foot work.

                      I'm not sure who I was hoping OG would be, but I'd be happy if he ends up as a really good or better version of Bruce Bowen. Solid defender, good spot of 3pt shooter with the ability to start and come off the bench.

                      As others have mentioned he may not be reaching expectations this season due to his father passing away, and being in and out of the line-up, but playing along side Kawhi has also hurt/slowed down his development imo.

                        Massive role-player potential already getting rotation minutes on a contender as a sophomore. Looks fine to me.

                          Not sure yet what OG is going to be... Its just his second year...

                          His first year was played with a slight bit of hesitancy due to recovery from the ACL.
                          Second year with a clean bill of health started really really well and then he had his father pass away... He is the youngest. Its hard for the youngest.

                          He checks the boxes Ujiri hunts for .. solid character, great athlete, dedicated and focused work ethic, length and can he can play multiple positions.

                          Players develop at varying rates....

                          OG isn't going anywhere.

                            He is 21 years old, that recently lost his father and is playing on a 2nd unit which has been dysfunctional all season long.

                            OG is still a great prospect, lets not forget Siakam is 3 years older & had a disappointing playoffs last season (which some of you already panicked & written him off).
