Vince Carter and the Dangerous Grip of Nostalgia


On Wednesday night, during a commercial timeout, the Toronto Raptors celebrated Vince Carter as part of their 20th Anniversary theme for this season. All things considered, the moment went very well. The fans gave Carter a classy applause, the video was entertaining and Vinsanity himself sprung leaks in both eyes. Then the game began and on the first possession in ... Read More »

Game Day: Raptors vs Grizzlies


Twenty years ago the Raptors and Grizzlies began their NBA journey, and now – two decades later – both teams sit at the top of their respective conferences posing their best starts in franchise history. Twice this season the Raptors have come up against two teams that are better (In Miami’s case it’s arguable) than them on paper in Miami ... Read More »

Raptor of the Week: Nov.9-15


The Toronto Raptors played four games this week, winning three of them. They defeated Philadelphia, Orlando and Utah, but lost a big game to Chicago. The Raps are now sitting at an 8-2 record.

Game Day: Raptors host Jazz


In recent history the Toronto Raptors had this bizarre trend where they would lose games against the NBA’s minnows, and then come up with ridiculous wins against teams like OKC and SAS. That tide has shifted somewhat. The Raptors no longer lose the games they’re supposed to win. Stemming from last season and continuing over to this season, the Raptors ... Read More »

Charles Barkley will check in at halftime to talk about his favourite city ... Read More »

Recap: Raptors fight back to beat Magic


We always knew the Raptors were a great fourth quarter team. The Raps’ are first in the league when it comes to points allowed in the final frame and that showed tonight as they held the Magic to just 17 fourth quarter points compared to 83 in the previous three. Quite frankly, the Raptors were putrid in the first three ... Read More »

Recap: Raptors bully 76ers, take top spot in the East

BKN Sixers Raptors 20141109

Never before have I seen the Raptors so dominant that winning just wasn’t nearly as satisfying. Tonight, it looked like the Raptors were playing a D-league that was terrified of the sport of basketball and just wanted to go home and watch the walking dead. The 76ers – decimated by injuries on an already weak roster – were so bad, ... Read More »

Raptor of the Week: Oct.28-Nov.8


It’s baaaaaaaack. That’s right, folks, Raptor of the Week is back! You may have been wondering where this has been since this past week wasn’t technically the first of the season, but the second.  While that may be true, the first week of the season is always a little different since it usually isn’t a normal week and sometimes only ...
