Could Williams Win Sixth Man Award?

New York Knicks v Toronto Raptors

Back in the 2011-12 season, Lou Williams received the second most votes for the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award. He was beaten out only by James Harden (remember those days, Thunder fans?), who has become an All-Star player as a starter in Houston. This was before Williams’ ACL tear in 2013 and what most would consider the high ... 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 ...

Game Day: Raps look to bounce back against Celtics


The Raptors have fallen to fourth in the Eastern Conference. They are now a game back from Chicago for the third spot that they held for so long. Tonight is another chance to go out and get a much needed win. Perhaps the fact that they’ve actually lost the spot will now push them into a mode of urgency. “We’re ... Read More »

Game Day: Raptors at Cavs

DeMar DeRozan; Kyrie Irving;  Tristan Thompson;  Tyler Zeller

After beating them only a few days ago in their first meeting of the season and effectively ending their longest winning streak in nearly four years, the Raptors will be facing the Cleveland Cavaliers again, only this time on the wine and gold’s home floor. The Raps themselves will be looking to make some history, trying to get to seven ... Read More »

Game Day: Bulls at Raptors

Carlos Boozer, Terrence Ross, Amir Johnson

Coming off a successful All-Star break where Terrence Ross and DeMar Derozan especially acquitted themselves with aplomb, Toronto started the second half with exactly the kind of “full 48″ performance against a potential rival we’ve been wanting to see since the turn of the year. Unfortunately, life in the NBA moves quickly, and if the Raptors spend too much time ... Read More »

Raptor of the Week: Feb. 10-16


The Raptors played just two games this past week before the All-Star break began, coming up big against both New Orleans and rival Atlanta. It’s a tough choice this week, with two players putting up great numbers in those two games. One an All-Star and one a should-be-All-Star. But this award is fit for only one, so someone’s got to ...

East down West 163-155 in DeMar’s Debut


After three straight years of losing to the West, the East finally managed to pull one together and defeat their conference foes. This game turned out to be the highest-scoring All-Star game ever. DeMar came out and scored rather quickly after being thrown a lob which he easily lay up and in through the hoop. He looked pretty good during ... Read More »

Five Players Worth “Tanking” For


Do you feel a draft in the building? Perhaps not yet, but if Masai Ujiri can somehow crack a window in the Raptors franchise, we all may be feeling one soon. As it stands right now, Masai is at a crossroads with how to approach the rest of the season. The Raptors have gone 3-2 since dealing Rudy Gay to ... Read More »

Wiggins Watch: Dec. 9-15


The Kansas Jayhawks played two games this week, coming up with both a victory and a loss. Ironically, Andrew Wiggins was stellar in the loss and not-so-stellar in the victory. Wiggins’ first game was against the Florida Gators, where he just went off. He scored 26 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and blocked 2 shots. He was 46.6% (7-15) from the ... Read More »

Raptor of the Week: Dec. 9-15

Jonas Valanciunas, Joakim Noah

The Raptors played a total of three games this week, looking to involve the new players from the Rudy Gay trade and try and grab some more wins to dissolve the idea of “tanking”. No matter if a GM does it, the players and coaches do not like the idea of tanking. They play to win. The Raptors dropped the ... Read More »
