HoopsHype Toronto Raptors twitter
Ah, home ownership! Raccoons last yr --- wasps (bees?) this yr! Anyone know any wasp/pest control experts? Issue inside home--not outside
For Raptors, if DeMar's improved passing/ball handling chops translate from USA camp to the season they'll be more than pleased w his summer
Whether DeRozan makes Team USA or not there will be pros & cons. Either way the experience has been positive. Has made a strong case to stay
Only way DeRozan gets cut (very possible) is if coaches are looking for something else from his position. Has exceeded expectations in camp
DeMar DeRozan should make Team USA. Doesn’t mean he will, but he has played well enough whenever called upon.
About to take piano lessons
That story is filled with gems. Will link to it when it is on-line. Including Rob Ford and Don Kelly weighing in.
Leiweke joked Masai said he would kick him out of town if he didn’t get this done. High priority for Ujiri.
"It is one of the great urban points of destination in North America.” Leiweke on CNE location of practice facility
Flights to Valencia.. ✌️✌️.. It's time to get it.. http://t.co/lTQn5L7eZG
Scarborough's Isiaha Mike is an amazing story. Did not play competitive hoops past two years to get grades up, comes to Americas Camp, MVP
NBAers want the most comfort and convenience possible. Will get the comfort at new facility. Tradeoff will be less convenience.
(and I'm not saying new facility is "way out there" by any means). Just saying never underestimate pain in the ass factor for pros
Sure, many NBA teams have facilities way out there, so won't be big deal for newcomers... but existing Raptors likely peeved at least a bit
Players might gripe about no longer being able to exit condos, walk to practice court, but scope of new facility should win them over
So there it is. Expect more details on Raptors CNE facility, dare I say it... imminently
First Bruno, now Leiweke... Raptors championship time
When I open Twitter each morning, I'm genuinely curious what people will be making bad jokes about.
I would have preferred no meaningful August baseball.
Tim Danson hasn't yet commented on Moore-Bertuzzi settlement, which is interesting.
Bruno’s ultimate NBA goal: "I want to help the team win. I want champion with Toronto Raptors."
What is Bruno eating to get his 6,000 calories a day? “Pasta … all things.”
Question is whether who among Bertuzzi, Canucks and insurance companies will have to pay what share ... /2
Interesting convo with litigation expert; best guess is Moore-Bertuzzi settlement in $10-$15-million range. /1
The Internet's hockey analytics dept. now hiring. No word on compensation, but opportunities to say 'I told you so' are unlimited.
I mean, I love Twitter, but it's objectively awful.
Twitter is terrible.
I like everybody gets jobs week more than everybody gets fired week.
NBA announces Dick Bavetta will retire after 39 years. Truly one of the nicest men I've ever met. Worked 2,635 straight games!
Who gets Drizzy in the divorce?
Meanwhile Raptors, TFC and now Leafs have each brought a league guy on-board in past year or so for CBA/contract help
So Leiweke basically commits to another year. Will he be here still for NBA all-star weekend in two years though?
Leiweke's future depends on how you define 'soon' Prediction: He will be here until next Spring at minimum. After that? Wide open.
Why leave when you can soak yourself in ice water? Hear T Leiweke, Amir J, N. Kadri and J. Defoe doing ice bucket thing Weds at ACC
Even if it were to end today, the Leiweke/MLSE marriage has lasted 14 months longer than the Kardashian/Humphries union. So, there's that.
Had been hearing rumblings of Leiweke's discontent but his exit after just 16 months would be bizarre. Positive impact, incomplete mission
With NFL dream dead here too, big part of Leiweke's plans were scuttled
Bruno says Raptors have him eating 6,000 calories a day.
According to Geoff Adair, lawyer for Todd Bertuzzi; there is a 'potential problem' re: settlement.
I swear, I'm going to write a totally serious "Kyle Lowry: bulldog or pit bull?" story this year.
Good morning world.
thought about leaving the apartment today. lol.
You gotta know that you can't control what you can't control.....
No detail as of yet, but again: Moore-Bertuzzi litigation is over after 10 years. Moore was seeking $68-million in damages.
The Moore-Bertuzzi litigation has been settled out of court.
Dios Es Grande!! God is Great!!

Manziel has an OVO tattoo on his wrist? It's going to be so weird when he and Durant play in Toronto.
Not arresting media seems like pretty easy-to-accomplish PR.
Vamos Venezuela en el baloncesto femenino... Hoy Es el dia......
Bruno Caboclo said he hasn’t had contact with Toronto’s Brazilian community yet, but is excited for that. Says summer has been crazy.
As I reported last wk, Jordan Hamilton deal with Raptors only has partial guarantee/he'll have tough time making roster. But Masai likes him
Pretty amazing press conference from Obama, considering he was sleeping.
Weird press conference to try to honour a white house reporter.
