Official Toronto Raptors 2009/10 Thread



This is the official Toronto Raptors thread for 2009 and 2010.
Post all your Raptors and Basketball related items here.


After a dismisal 33-49 record Bryan Colangelo has completely revamped the Toronto Raptors bringing in 9 new faces, new coaches and a new philosphy.

Key Additions

Hedo Turkoglu
Jarret Jack
Reggie Evans
Antione Wright
Rasho Nesterovic
D. Derozan
Marco Bellinili
Sonny Weems
Amir Johnson

Jay Triano and Bryan Colangelo have also brought in defensive specialist coach Marc Trivaoni who has been an assistant coach with the Phoenix Suns and a head coach with the Memphis Grizzlies. Long time and fan favourite Gaurd Alvin Williams has also been added to the coaching staff.

The additons bring this team raw energy, rebounders, toughness, and depth - all things lacking from last season.

First game begins Wednesday October 28th, 2009 against Cleveland Cavaliers who have added our old friends Anthony Parker and Jamairo Moon to their roster.
Game Tiime is 7:00pm on the Score.

We're playing Memphis tonight at 8pm on TSN2 .. I don't even know if I get this channel yet .. gotta check the rogers box!

I'm curious to see how memphis is going to do .. they have some nice pieces but chemistry seems like it will be the issue.. plus AI isn't playing.

TSN2 is included with most of the boxes now, channel 98 for me. HDTSN2 costs extra though (HD Score, Snet, etc are all free).

So glad it's not like last year where I had to go to bars for all the TSN2 games.

I can't believe the raptors lost today! We missed quite a few easy buckets that could've made this game ours. I'm not reading too much into this loss though. I know the raptors will pick it up!

We face Orlando on Sunday. VC comes to town. We always play good against Orlando but not VC lol. Hopefully carter will be sitting out with an injury and we can steal that game.

VC is out. Ankle injury. I heard the news an hour after buying tickets to the game. **** my ****ing life.

"I heal like a young guy so I'll be good tomorrow," Carter said after sitting out the second half. "Hopefully, I'll be back Sunday. We're going to be smart about it. It's a long season. I'm feeling better now that I am walking on it."

Bullshit. You're a pussy and will sit out the next four months!

Memphis was hungry man. Raps defense definitely had some holes, but I don't think the Grizzlies were gonna let anything stop them in the 4th.

On to Sunday! VC or not it'll be a fun game to watch.

Hey all, haven't had a chance to post in this thread in a while... thought I let you guys know about my experience last sunday.

I went to the Orlando-Raptors game with media passes. As some of you may know I had the chance to interview Pops Mensa-Bonsu and Shawn Marion back in April. I posted a clip of that on youtube for a while. Well I had the opportunity again to pose as a reporter and speak to some of the players.

I went into the Raptors lockroom but though they just got their asses kicked it didn't seem like they were in a mood to chat. I didn't want to ask them the same questions as the rest of the media so I just chatted it up with Demar Derozan and Pops. Demar was a really shy guy and Pops just got picked up from waivers and hasn't played and you can tell he was visibly upset. It was cool that he recognized me and we talked a little about our last interview.

So my crew and I went into the Orlando locker room where the atmosphere was much more live. I spoke to Vince Carter and Dwight Howard. I have to say VC is honestly a real cool dude. Though we were with the Punjabi media, he was already familiar with my culture through Nav Batia. He gave us a good interview. I told him that he still has fans within the punjabi community and he replied with relief that he is still glad he has fans in Toronto.

Dwight Howard is completely jokes! I had a blast kicking it with him. He is so approachable and as a matter of fact he came up to us and started asking us if we have seen that clip on youtube about that girl who got that h1n1 shot and has to walk backwards to communicate. He was doing his best impression of that and it had all of us laughing. He was the last Magic to leave the locker room and we were one of the last media people as well. I could tell Dwight was having a good time with us to the point where he gave us a special clip to post on our youtube channel. Patrick Ewing had to come into the locker room and tell Howard to leave or the bus is going to take off without them!

In anycase, it was completely awesome having the opportunity to do all this. I'm hoping I will be invited to all the Raptors games when there is commentating done in Punjabi. I am still waiting for a confirmation for tomorrow's game verse the Suns. It will be incredible to get an interview with Nash and Stoudemire.

Just wanted to share my amazing experience with everyone :-) Clips should be posted within the next week or so!
