Nine days until Raptors media day. Everybody excited?

Eric Smith

41 days til the #Raptors first game of the 2014/15 season. Nobody has worn #41 for T.O. ... so the jersey tribute has to wait. #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

This is funny RT @Toronto Raptors: More from @Bruno Caboclo at Niagara Falls: "And YOU get a photo and YOU get a photo and..” http://t.co/ytxPgmTUJZ

Josh Lewenberg

Both of those stats indicate the Raptors had more success than expected using 2-PG lineup, specifically late in year when GV's %s went up

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors top 2013/14 pairings: 1) Lowry/Vasquez (+186 in 243mins) 2) Lowry/DeRozan (+176, 2273mins) 3) Lowry/Amir (+175) 4) Lowry/Ross (+167)

Josh Lewenberg

Some Fri aft Raptors trivia: last season's top four two-man pairings (+/-) all featured the same player. Name that player, name the pairings

Eric Smith

Shout out to Walt Williams, art long, mengke bateer, and Alex ajinca too! #42 #raptors #rtz

Eric Smith

Including today, we're one @Donyell Marshall (or @KevinWillis42) jersey away from the start of the #Raptors season. #RTZ http://t.co/rtWFHGN2B5

Great moments in Raptors history: Alvin Williams is traded to Boston, only to have trade rescinded because of failed physical in Feb. 2000

Had a chance to catch up w/ Patrick Patterson today. Asked him what the Raptors ceiling is this year: "We can win the East. Sky's the limit"

Eric Koreen

Also pointed out to me yesterday by an interview subject: the Raptors have more FB likes than the Leafs now. (1/2)

#raptors blog: Forget the Mad Ants, the Raptors need their own D League team on.thestar.com/1ybgOHK

Josh Lewenberg

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

Eric Smith

The #Raptors have announced their 2014/15 D-league affiliation with the #madAnts of Fort Wayne. #rtz

Eric Koreen

The Fort Wayne Mad Ants will be affiliate for 13 NBA teams, including Raptors. Just a 6.5 hour drive to go see Bruno!

In a sports world filled with problems, this is an indication of the man that Raptors GM Masai Ujiri is - class: theglobeandmail.com/sports/basketb…

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri with thoughtful comments on Danny Ferry, being African dlvr.it/6tMMkQ

Michael Grange

Excellent Op-ed in Globe and Mail by Raptors Masai Ujiri on Danny Ferry's comments: theglobeandmail.com/sports/basketb…

Ryan Wolstat

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

Josh Lewenberg

A thoughtful & well-articulated perspective on a messy situation MT @cathalkelly Raptors Masai Ujiri on Danny Ferry m.theglobeandmail.com/sports/basketb…

Ira Winderman

Raptors General Manager Masai Ujiri on Denny Ferry, Luol Deng and Africa. Worth the time and the message. m.theglobeandmail.com/sports/basketb…

Also, via Woj, Billups is kind of responsible for the current state of the Raptors: sports.yahoo.com/news/how-kyle-…

Eric Koreen

Farewell to Chauncey Billups, the only player to ever win a Finals MVP AFTER playing for the Raptors. A wonderful player.

Sean Highkin

The new Raptors and Hawks courts (10 and 9 on @Zach Lowe rankings) are terrific. grantland.com/features/nba-c…

Chris Mannix

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

Chuck Swirsky

Uros Slokar 2nd rd pick 2005 by Raptors played one year in Toronto. Very, very intelligent person.Would bring engineering books on flights.

Eric Koreen

Think the new Raptors court looks a whole lot sharper, my reservations about #WeTheNorth notwithstanding.
