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.

    Much credit for the post. That is a lot of work and very interesting findings.

    Stats are a useful tool but I don't think they tell the whole story. This idea was talked about in the Everything Bayless so I don't want to go in to it again.

    Unfortunately Bayless doesn't pass the 'eye' test for me - and I know that is extremely subjective.

    Also I am still weary of a player who has better numbers when his team loses than when they win.
    Subjective, but still true. Bottom line is, at this point in their careers, you get much more out of Jose, especially if you include the intangibles which he brings to the table. We often hear great things about his locker room presence and leadership.

    ultimately, it would be difficult to pencil either of these into the starting lineup of a championship caliber team any time soon, and we need an upgrade at the position no matter what. If you look at the league today, you need a PG that can defend. Guys like Rose and Westbrook are too powerful and quick for Calderon or Bayless, and more and more of these PG's are coming into the league every year.

      I can honestly see Calderon a good fit with the Lakers (with or without Gasol).

        Complete props in this post. Fantastic work on drawing these up.

        Only minus is the number of games Bayless had compared to Calderon, which everyone is probably posting about, but never really knew how much Bayless and Calderon comparisons actually lined up.

        I know that statistics don't tell the whole story, which I am guilty of saying often, but stats also don't lie....

          The Lakers need a good point guard, period. They might chase Nash in the off-season.
