The Rap-Up: Games of the Week for Oct. 29-Nov. 4

SBN: Raptors HQ (JayRosales) — Greek Freak vs. The Klaw gets the week started, then LeBron does battle with Kawhi at its end. The Raptors have their work cut out for them. And then there were two! Only two teams are without a loss. While the teams in question were likely not on your radar as the “last team standing” before the season started, they’ll take centre stage on Monday. After facing the Bucks, Toronto’s got a...

Ranking Every Raptor: Quasi-Memorable Roster Fringe — #150 - 121

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Most of these Raptors players were bad, but had moments that were memorably good. If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re ranking every player in Raptors history based on their contributions to the team. Arbitrary criteria, don’t get mad at me, yaddah yaddah.

Eastern Conference Competition Breakdown: Cream of the Crop

SBN: Raptors HQ (Josh Kern) — The 2018-2019 Eastern Conference looks to be a three-team race, with two dark horses bringing up the rear. Last week, we ran down the Toronto Raptors’ competition at the lower end of the Eastern Conference , ending up, perhaps unsurprisingly, with the consistently underwhelming Washington Wizards . I predicted the Raptors would carve out a 33-5 record against those 10 teams. But these...

Ranking Every Raptor: The Dudes Who Stunk Most — #218 - 181

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — A lot of players have played for the Raptors. These are the worst of the bunch. When the Raptors traded for Kawhi Leonard , the franchise leveled up. For 23 years, the Raptors have lacked a truly life-changing superstar. Vince Carter came close to reaching the upper crust, albeit during one of the deepest talent nadirs in league history, and the Kyle Lowry-DeMar DeRozan duo won a...

There will be no Christmas Day game for the Raptors this year

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — Or maybe... ever? As it leaked last night, from mysterious Christmas sources, it felt increasingly likely Toronto would not be featured on the big NBA day of December 25th. To be honest, we knew this would likely be the case, even if the Raptors had added Kawhi Leonard , even if they had Finals aspirations, even if they had a built-in storyline for a big marquee game with a showdown...

The Raptors need soul, not skill, from the 14th roster spot

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — The Raptors need to sign a big man. Here’s the case for a reunion with a former fan favourite. The Raptors are in the market for a guy, though not really out of necessity as much as technicality. Toronto’s roster has more useful wings than Nick Nurse can realistically use, three times as many good point guards as most teams employ (infinitely more than the Magic do), and a small but...

On Masai Ujiri’s big move and loyalty in professional sports

SBN: Raptors HQ (Dan Grant) — The Raptors boss is catching flak for his treatment of a homegrown star. Is it deserved? The Kawhi Leonard era is underway in Toronto, and its opening (and perhaps only) season represents a significant fork-in-the-road for the franchise. The window for contention, pegged at three years before last season began, has possibly been reduced by one — that is to say, it’s this year or bust. If...
