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.

    That is great to see. They were playing for first place as well. Opponent was 6-0 before this game.

    It does not seem he gets much opportunities in the post nor many looks from the guards.

    Toronto will have to add some shooters, the opponent was getting killed clogging up the middle of pick and rolls only to have the ball swung to an open 3 point shot.


    Did you see the game? JV only had 2 defensive boards with opponent having 13 offensive boards. Was he missing box outs or getting out muscled for rebounds?

      uh-oh ... looks like Bargnani numbers. I'm sure in a couple of years we'll be starting an "Everything Jonas" thread

        did not see this one, but have seen enough of his games to know rebounding is not an issue, the other teams leading rebounder only had 4, looks like they might have thrown in some grinders off the bench, and Valanciunas did play a lot more minutes than he is used to, so that might be a factor

          And it could easily have been another player(s) not boxing out their man at his of rebound total.

          Thanks.

            also team rebounding was 27 - 27, so its not like his team was killed on the boards. and the possibility of tipping the ball to a teammate which isn't counted as a stat, which he might have done a couple of times.

              True but L. Rytas did win by 26 points and 13 of the 27 rebounds were offensive.

              I am not or was not meaning to question his rebounding abilities. In asking the question it had everything to do with strength and nothing to do with ability, desire, or skill.

                Rytas starting center is injured so it looks like more minutes for Valanciunas, good news for Raptor fans is that he was very efficient in 32 minutes, so there is some proof that they are sort of holding him back, and maybe he is more ready for an NBA schedule than it seemed

                  25 points, 12 boards, 6 blocks today

                  highlights are up, got to watch the game today, Valanciunas was by far the best player on the floor, and also displayed some great passing skills, only getting one assist but moved the ball very well out of the double team

                    Check the post up at 1:35.... nice footwork. Hopefully he can teach Bargnani to go to the left in the post.

                      That's awesome! Hopefully they start getting him some more minutes and possibly the starting job if he continues like this!

                      Do you foul out with 6 fouls in that league? If so, great use of the fouls!

                          Thanks for highlighting those one more time Matt. Didn't catch them first time around! Unreal!

                          I can see JV being very effective on the P&R in the NBA with his quick hops.
                          I'm already seeing Jose tossin up Alley-Oops all day long! haha

                            Not sure if those are Jose's forte... But we'd better make sure we have some shooters next year, as teams will be clogging up the paint if our shooting stays this bad. Especially when we are playing JV with Davis or Johnson the other three need to be able to shoot the three at least at a league average percentage.

                              Did you not watch last season? Jose certainly is excellent at throwing the ally-oop. There was a misnomer earlier in his career that he couldn't do it, but it turned out that he couldn't do it to players who didn't want to or were unable to catch them. Once he got the players who could (DeRozan, Amir, Davis) he started throwing a lot of them.
