Raptors will be one of 13 NBA teams affiliated with the D-League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants, which has to be the worst team name in all of sports
The Fort Wayne Mad Ants will be affiliate for 13 NBA teams, including Raptors. Just a 6.5 hour drive to go see Bruno!
Sure, you tend to lose a lot on D when you become primary scorer, happened with McGrady after leaving Raptors, but stands out with Harden
Correction on single-game Raptors tickets, they go on sale tomorrow. The info I got was for a pre-sale only
For those wondering about Raptors single-game tickets, pre-sale just went live at Ticketmaster
Farewell to Chauncey Billups, the only player to ever win a Finals MVP AFTER playing for the Raptors. A wonderful player.
Lithuania--and Raptors--center Jonas Valanciunas will be a good test of where the U.S. is on the inside. Not a scorer, but a beast on boards
Uros Slokar 2nd rd pick 2005 by Raptors played one year in Toronto. Very, very intelligent person.Would bring engineering books on flights.
New Raptors and Hawks floors are dope. Strong upgrades.
Now on NBA TV Canada: OKC at Raptors, March 2014. What could go wrong?
So, Lithuania & Valanciunas get by Turkey to set up a likely meeting with Raptors teammate DeMar DeRozan & Team USA in the semis Thurs
Valanciunas has been an animal on the boards today (12 rebounds in 23 mins), an area in which the Raptors expect him to excel this season
BTW, Raptors fans who are at home for some reason a Tuesday morning: JV and Lithuania playing Turkey on NBA TV Canada right now.
So, the Raptors do not have a deal with Rochester and 13 NBA teams are without a D-League affiliate right now, according to team.
If the Raptors DO end up with a D-League team in Rochester, I'm going to have to insist on them re-starting that ferry they had.
Furthermore, for obvious reasons, the Raptors want to have their own D-League team at some point. Might be easier to base it in States.
For those curious about Fields, the Raptors chose not to stretch him and the window closed Aug. 31.
Given roster needs, Stiemsma probably makes the most sense as the guy who sticks around and wins 15th spot on Raptors.
