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.

  • Melo?

    Can Melo still play?

    https://www.thescore.com/nba/news/16...n-from-rockets

    Dwyane is on his Kobe NBA-world tour-ish, with a detour to be a quality parent, Lebron is ready to executive produce space jam 2-6, Bosh is pushing to get back in, their draft class is still the wildest of the 2000's. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_NBA_draft

    Can he still play?

    Side piece, can MU wrangle him once again?

    First, I don't want the Raptors to have anything to do with him.

    Second, I think he can still play, barring he's willing to accept a much smaller role than in years past. At this point, he's a stand-still shooter still capable of scoring out of the block -- to me, for him to fit on any team, he'll have to be:

    - surrounded by defenders, shooters, 3-&-D players
    - come off the bench, playing between 15-22 minutes a night
    - play most minutes at the four

    If the Rockets had a roster of Mbah a Moute and Ariza, yeah, it would've made sense. But the depth is no longer the same, or nearly as good defensively. He's also been trash from the field, so that has to improve otherwise he's pretty much useless on the floor.

      Yeah it doesn't bode well for him that he couldn't get it to work in Houston with point god and d'antoni being familiar with him.

      But the team you described is the Raptors. Surrounded by long defenders that can shoot and an opening at the 4 on the bench.

      It just seems like a waste that all that talent can't be put to use on a contender somewhere.

        We don't have an opening at the 4. Nurse is trying to only use Siakam and OG there. Both better options than Melo.

        Melo doesn't fit anywhere.

          On the bench? If Siakam is full time with the starters, you could conceivably play FVV, DL, OG, Melo, and JV/Ibaka.

          I'm not saying it has to be us. Just that Melo might have something left.

            His ego is restraining him from being useful in the court. He has to realise he's not the guy anymore and frankly, I think that won't happen.

                Melo's now a bench player. I feel sorry for him.

                  He's like 59 years old, he had a great run as a starter, why the hell do you feel bad for him?

                  Everything has a beginning and an end man, guy had a great career, it gave him a life .00001 of the people who ever ever lived on this planet, ever, have been able to live. He's ok.

                    It's just really hard to believe a guy that talented, that has that many go-to-guy miles oh him, that prodigious of a scorer can't find work off the bench against slow footed 4s anywhere in the worlds best league.

                          Wonder if he'll ever get signed again.
