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.

        This is actual real

        He hasn't made any official retirement decisions. Until now.

        EDIT: You know it was hard for him, he went broke and stuff. He needed to wait 3 years to announce retirement.

          He's looking for a coaching job. Can't wait to "practice."

                  Anyhow, this is a sad sight. Ended off his career horribly.

                    I'm pretty blown away by the comments on here.

                    Whatever, he can now start his march toward the HOF.

                      No matter how this dude handled his career end, but he was one of the best (and most selfish?) players in the NBA history, sadly he left without a ring.

                            Don't really know what happened to AI because he was great in his final year w/ the Nuggets. The year before that he averaged 26ppg.

                            In his first and last year with Detroit he averaged 17ppg, still pretty good IMO. His numbers dropped when he returned to Philly because he was a 6th man for them.

                            In his final year w/ the NBA playing for the the Grizzlies he didn't get much minutes. But he still averaged 12ppg.

                            After that season i believe AI said that he's still an NBA caliber starter. And said that he'd rather not play than play for a team that wouldn't let him play starter minutes.

                            And that time i really felt like the Raptors would be a great fit for him because AI can play the 2 and the 1. Our SG and PG that time was Jose Calderon and a very raw DeMar DeRozan.

                            My point that year was, if we're not making the playoffs then as a fan i want to be entertained. I want to see AI play.

                              Yeah, that's a pretty valid point.

                              Unfortunately, AI's attitude basically led to him blacklisting himself from the NBA. It's too bad really. He just couldn't deal with having a lesser role. I don't even think that would necessarily have to be off the bench, but yeah, teams were just too afraid to bring someone in who A) can't live with a diminished role, and B) hates "practice". Doesn't really make a manager think "this guy would be good for this situation".

                              AI's a great example of the importance of character. He even had a great competitive spirit, and was generally not a bad character in a lot of ways. Just that ego that he couldn't keep in check. To this day I think it's because Philly never put a legitimate 2nd leader on those teams that could challenge him, especially when he was young. Never had a real mentor, or someone to hold him accountable.
