HoopsHype Toronto Raptors twitter
Janeane Garofalo. I didn't know she backed up Brady. Interesting!
Best part about this Pats loss (if it stands, that is) ........ BUF will still be tied for first in the AFC East, haha! ORRRRTON!
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)
Me and my brother nogueira92oficial always together
Navy Seals have the most incredible stories... Immense respect!
Toronto's Justin Jackson commits to UNLV
Yes, I did put on 15 pounds of pure optimism muscle this summer.
A good piece of advice for journalists is to make sure you have many friends who are not journalists.
Valanciunas spoke of Hakeem in awe. Said he learned a lot. On Dream Shake: “I will try to use that."
Takeaway from Raptors media day. DeMar DeRozan is oozing confidence.
“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
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"
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"
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
For those asking about Raptor rebrand stuff, nothing imminent, various things will be revealed during season. “Looks good,” I am told.
7 pages of Raptors in tomorrow’s Sun between four of us, so will get to Twitter questions later today.
It's almost time..
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"
Bruno has a calf injury
Casey said the team will be cautious with Caboclo (calf) over the first few days of camp, hoping he won't fall behind early.
Raptors rookie Bruno Caboclo will be limited to begin his first training camp, nursing a pulled calf muscle, per Coach Casey
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"
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
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"
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)
Hayes said he & some of his veteran teammates exchanged irritated texts throughout the 2nd round. "We felt like we should have been there"
Lowry says he was "very disappointed and upset" to hear about Leiweke's departure but he understands. "I respect his decision as a man"
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"
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"
Highlight of DeRozan's experience at the FIBA World Cup this summer: "Playing against JV"
What else does everyone want to know about the Raptors?
Demar cut his hair. http://t.co/CDsKba3o1T
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.
Amir Johnson got some fancy scanning technology on his ankles that he thinks can help him stay healthy. Did not need surgery.
Chemistry and continuity the themes at Raptors media day. As it should be.
Valanciunas joked he's already made friends with old foe Stiemsma. "Masai's bringing in all of my friends."
"Those people who thought I would come back out of shape they're idiots" Lowry
Valanciunas said it hurt to be "so close" to a bronze medal. Said he likes his new Brazilian pals Bruno and Bebe.
Ross used his rough postseason as motivation this summer. He put on 15 pounds in hopes of getting stronger. What did he eat? "Everything"
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
Ross said he blames himself for messing up Lowry's spacing on shot that Pierce blocked to end series
Terrence Ross says he ate and lifted all summer and doubling that since he got back. Will need extra bulk at SF
Lou Williams' first impression of his new teammates: "they want to be taken seriously, they want to be respected"
Chuck Hayes says some players went bowling yesterday. The winner, according to Chuck Hayes: Chuck Hayes. He scored a 136
James Johnson thrilled to be back. Said he's grown up, will work with Dwane Casey, accept defensive role
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
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
Masai: "I missed you guys (media)." Koreen: "first lie already."
"No predictions on the record. We're hoping to win and grow as a team. The NBA is full of surprises.
"You win games in the regular season, but you get better in the summer." - Masai Ujiri
