Janeane Garofalo. I didn't know she backed up Brady. Interesting!

Eric Smith

Best part about this Pats loss (if it stands, that is) ........ BUF will still be tied for first in the AFC East, haha! ORRRRTON!

Eric Smith

Man, when was the last time the Pats took a whoopin' like this? I really enjoy watching it (esp. after watching BUF get spanked for 2 wks)

Eric Koreen

Nice to read good pieces from cool people on the Raptors again. Huzzah. #goodpieces #coolpeople #Raptors

Greivis Vasquez

What was different about Raptors media day (aside from the absence of the Drake/Rob Ford dynamic duo)? Expectations tsn.ca/talent/lewenbe…

The perpetually reasonable @KDonHoops assesses the Raptors: sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball…

Eric Koreen

Yes, I did put on 15 pounds of pure optimism muscle this summer.

Eric Koreen

A good piece of advice for journalists is to make sure you have many friends who are not journalists.

Payal Doshi

Say what!!! RT @SI_PeterKing: The benching of EJ Manuel is stunning.

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas spoke of Hakeem in awe. Said he learned a lot. On Dream Shake: “I will try to use that."

Mike Ganter

Takeaway from Raptors media day. DeMar DeRozan is oozing confidence.

Ryan Wolstat

“I don’t know if we’re favoured, I haven’t heard that, but I think we have expectations to be a better team.” Lowry on the Atlantic

Josh Lewenberg

Ross: "Right now I feel like I'm a different player and I've got to do a lot more than I did last year... I'm never going to be complacent"

Josh Lewenberg

Ross said he cant use youth as an excuse anymore. "Everything going forward is about manning up & taking it. If I mess up than I mess up"

Josh Lewenberg

Good sign for the Raps: Ross seemed like a new man in front of the cameras today. Confident, chatty & reflective. Masai insists he's matured

Ryan Wolstat

For those asking about Raptor rebrand stuff, nothing imminent, various things will be revealed during season. “Looks good,” I am told.

Ryan Wolstat

7 pages of Raptors in tomorrow’s Sun between four of us, so will get to Twitter questions later today.

Michael Grange

As the Raps head into a new year, an inside look signing Kyle Lowry, the jewel of a perfect off-season: sportsnet.ca/basketball/nba…

Eric Koreen

As I transcribe, feel free to read my start-of-season piece on the Raps, who could own Toronto: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/09/28/tor…

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan felt disrespected by the SI ranking (slotting him at 61) but said they "did him a favour". "It gives me another reason to work hard"

Ryan Wolstat

Bruno has a calf injury

Josh Lewenberg

Casey said the team will be cautious with Caboclo (calf) over the first few days of camp, hoping he won't fall behind early.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors rookie Bruno Caboclo will be limited to begin his first training camp, nursing a pulled calf muscle, per Coach Casey

Josh Lewenberg

Casey is confident James Johnson has matured and grown as a man. "He understands his role and knows what he was brought in to do"

Josh Lewenberg

James Johnson knows he's made some mistakes he can't take back but he's about winning & so is Casey, believes that's enough common ground

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "We want to defend our division, that's our #1 goal. Were not going to go around beating our chest or putting a number of wins on it"

Josh Lewenberg

JV said any animosity that existed between he & Stiemsma is water under the bridge. "We already made friends" (said w/ a smile on his face)

Josh Lewenberg

Hayes said he & some of his veteran teammates exchanged irritated texts throughout the 2nd round. "We felt like we should have been there"

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry says he was "very disappointed and upset" to hear about Leiweke's departure but he understands. "I respect his decision as a man"

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry: "Those people who thought Id [be out of shape], theyre idiots. The people who were expecting me to come back in shape, they're smart"

Paul Jones

Biggest learning curve for @DeMar DeRozan was coming off bench this summer for #usabasketball. Appreciates.those guys more #Raptors #rtz

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry: "Me ever coming back out of shape, that's not what I want to do, ever. I like to work. It's fun. This is my job"

Paul Jones

Dwane Casey: I want to get better at EOG. We had best defense in #NBA in last 6 min & now it's time to take it to offense #Raptors #rtz

Eric Smith

DeRozan says the gold medal is at home...but he plans on bringing it in to show all the guys in the locker room, etc. #rtz #raptors

Josh Lewenberg

Highlight of DeRozan's experience at the FIBA World Cup this summer: "Playing against JV"

Paul Jones

Dwane Casey : we have strong character on this team. #Raptors #rtz #northernuprising

Ryan Wolstat

What else does everyone want to know about the Raptors?

Greivis Vasquez

Paul Jones

In chatting about his growth @klow7 said: you gotta grow up as a man. It just took me a little longer but I'm growing #rtz #Raptors

Michael Grange

Enjoyed brief chat w/ newcomer Lou Williams. Didn't feel like a fit in ATL. On a team trying to improve in increments, he could be key.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson got some fancy scanning technology on his ankles that he thinks can help him stay healthy. Did not need surgery.

Michael Grange

Chemistry and continuity the themes at Raptors media day. As it should be.

Eric Smith

We've chatted w/ so many guys today (after the other) we've had NO time to upload. We'll try to do so asap. TONS coming. #RTZ #Raptors

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas joked he's already made friends with old foe Stiemsma. "Masai's bringing in all of my friends."

Eric Smith

Look who has joined the Bearded Brotherhood.... @JValanciunas. Welcome, big man. #rtz #Raptors #beard #Sportsnet http://t.co/n15qDPO1z7

Ryan Wolstat

"Those people who thought I would come back out of shape they're idiots" Lowry

Paul Jones

Was great to chat with @Louis Williams. Wants to be a guy who can help with some of the offense when needed. He's excited #Raptors #rtz

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas said it hurt to be "so close" to a bronze medal. Said he likes his new Brazilian pals Bruno and Bebe.

Greivis Vasquez

Big year for my boy 3tross1 so follow him please!!! Sigan a este panita 3tross1 para que aprenda… instagram.com/p/tiLe64JA0N/

Eric Smith

Here is @Landry Fields jersey....with the 20th anniversary patch the #raptors will wear THIS year. #rtz #sportsnet http://t.co/KBkhd30rHc

Josh Lewenberg

Ross used his rough postseason as motivation this summer. He put on 15 pounds in hopes of getting stronger. What did he eat? "Everything"

Josh Lewenberg

Ross says he feels responsible for the way final possession of Game 7 played out, said his spacing made it hard for Lowry to get shot off

Ryan Wolstat

Ross said he blames himself for messing up Lowry's spacing on shot that Pierce blocked to end series

Ryan Wolstat

Terrence Ross says he ate and lifted all summer and doubling that since he got back. Will need extra bulk at SF

Josh Lewenberg

Lou Williams' first impression of his new teammates: "they want to be taken seriously, they want to be respected"

Josh Lewenberg

Chuck Hayes says some players went bowling yesterday. The winner, according to Chuck Hayes: Chuck Hayes. He scored a 136

Ryan Wolstat

James Johnson thrilled to be back. Said he's grown up, will work with Dwane Casey, accept defensive role

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors media day is underway. Lots of talk about continuity, return of core. Patterson says he's ready to go today, wants season to start

Eric Smith

Here is @Landry Fields jersey....with the 20th anniversary patch the #raptors will wear thus year. #rtz #sportsnet http://t.co/KBkhd30rHc

Ryan Wolstat

Chuck Hayes can't believe he is "old man" of this group at just 31. True to old man form, Hayes won team bowling contest with a 136 score

Eric Smith

Masai Ujiri about to chat with @paul__jones & yours truly. Will upload it soon (along with @Amir Johnson chat). #rtz #raptors #Sportsnet

Eric Smith

About to Interview @Amir Johnson. Will upload when done. #rtz #raptors #sportsnet

Paul Jones

Ujiri: Re: a D-League affiliate exclusively for #Raptors: it's high in out list but it has to make sense for us #rtz #northernuprising

Paul Jones

Ujiri : it's going to take a while for guys like Bruno & Bebe so we're going to be patient. We're still a young team. #Raptors #rtz

Eric Smith

"No predictions" says Masai Ujiri when asked about Toronto's potential record this year. #rtz #raptors #sportsnet http://t.co/Ya9KWZ1hoU

Ryan Wolstat

Masai: "I missed you guys (media)." Koreen: "first lie already."

Ryan Wolstat

"No predictions on the record. We're hoping to win and grow as a team. The NBA is full of surprises.

Eric Smith

Masai Ujiri says his guys "took the summer serious" and they're ready to go. #rtz #raptors #sportsnet #mediaday http://t.co/PBBecuXs6L
