NBA Schedule Release: Five Raptors games you should go to this season

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Because sometimes Wednesday games against lottery teams can be fun! Because it’s placed smack dab in the middle of the NBA’s tumbleweed season, schedule-release day is much ballyhooed. Ultimately, it’s an uninteresting blip that you probably won’t think about again until the 2017-18 season is upon us — and even then, it really only makes sense to fret over the schedule one week at a time, at...

Raptors What Ifs: The Solomon Hill Three-Pointer

SBN: Raptors HQ (Dylan Litman) — The future of the Raptors hinges on events unfolding in a specific way. Let’s explore past scenarios, and what may have happened if the opposite had occurred. When reminiscing on the past, it’s easy to become entranced by illusory scenarios that might’ve been, had an incident not swayed the outcome of an event. For example, I’m sure not a day goes by that Chicago Bulls fans aren’t thinking...

Predicting the Raptors’ Win Total for the 2017-18 season

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Hackett) — Let’s compare Toronto’s potential win totals with all of their competitors too. For the past several seasons, I’ve attempted to predict the win total for the Raptors using various player value measures and their correlations to win rates. I’ve tried to keep my approach fairly consistent, with small common sense tweaks each year. The model I used last season used only boxscore-derived...

The Kyrie Irving reports are exactly why the Raptors kept the band together

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — With the three-time reigning Eastern Conference champs in turmoil, the Raptors’ off-season looks better than ever. Change in the NBA seems impossible until it isn’t. Kevin Durant , James Harden and Russell Westbrook were supposed to dominate a decade in Oklahoma City; Derrick Rose’s Bulls and the Miami Big 3 were meant to duke it out for the right to be the Thunder ’s annual foil....

HQ Mailbag: Free agency’s over. What now?

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — The off-season is about to plunge into darkness. Let’s take stock of team in another HQ mailbag. It took me two days, but the latest edition of the Raptors HQ Mailbag is here. We’re entering into the most silent part of the NBA off-season, and the Raptors look to be just about finished with their off-season maneuvering. Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka are returning, C.J. Miles has landed,...

Midseason Crown League Power Rankings

SBN: Raptors HQ (Mitch_Robson) — Each team sits at 1-1 after two weeks of play, but who’s truly the best squad running? It’s roasting outside, and summer is in full swing, which also means the action at Nike Crown League is heating up as we near the halfway point of the 2017 season. The league has been as strong as ever in its third season, as each team is stocked with professional players from the G-League, NBL Canada,...

NBA Free Agency: What do you think will happen with the Raptors?

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — The wildest, most unpredictable time for the NBA begins... tomorrow. How does everybody feel? This is, if not the biggest off-season in Raptors history, then definitely the one with the most variables. The team has four free agents, potential looming salary cap issues, trades to explore, and a host of other concerns. And unlike in years past, Toronto actually has something to lose. They’re...

Losing Masai Ujiri would be a painful blow, but he’s set the Raptors up to survive it

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Masai Ujiri is one of the best executives in the NBA. Could the Raptors continue their run of success without him? Stability has ruled the Raptors under the measured leadership of Masai Ujiri. The Raptors are a collaborative entity, each level of the chain of command providing support for the one above it. Four years ago the Toronto was a laughing stock. Today, it is one of the league’s...

James Dolan is adorably interested in hiring Masai Ujiri as Knicks President

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — This is cute. Live your life with the confidence of New York Knicks owner James Dolan. There is truly nothing this man does not believe of himself. Is he the most respected business magnate in the NYC area? Just try to tell him something different. Can he sing the hell out of the moody blues on any given night in America? Oh, you betcha. Will he hire who he likes, whenever he likes, to...

POLL: What is the Raptors’ greatest position of need in the Draft?

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — A week out from the draft, it’s not clear what the Raptors should address with the 23rd pick. What do you think it should be? Save for the Warriors , every team enters the off-season with depth chart holes at one position or another. For some teams* the blank spaces outnumber the occupied ones. (*Read: The Knicks ). Each year fans fall into the trap of thinking their team can fix what...

Player Review: A three-month love affair with P.J. Tucker

SBN: Raptors HQ (Mitch_Robson) — Brought in as a piece to challenge the King, Tucker did just as much off the court as he did on it. P.J. Tucker’s services were acquired from the Phoenix Suns in the Raptors’ push to load up for the Cavs, as Masai Ujiri traded a pair of second round picks and the warm body of Jared Sullinger in the hopes Tucker would be the defensive wing that could go toe-to-toe with LeBron. In his...

Player Review: Jakob Poeltl still isn’t sexy, but he might be pretty good

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Jakob Poeltl’s rookie season was exciting in a totally boring kind of way. There existed a scenario in which the player the Raptors drafted with the ninth pick in the 2017 draft — the pick acquired in the Andrea Bargnani trade — would result in a net loss for the Raptors. Sure, the odds were slim that the incoming rookie would prove to be so unbelievably bad at basketball as to make...
