Last week, the Toronto Raptors completed a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies, where they acquired Rudy Gay. Gay is an All-Star caliber player and immediately became Toronto’s best player and go-to scorer. He has been fantastic so far with the Raptors, averaging 23.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, in 6 games and the Raptors are 4-2 since the trade. If these six games are any indication, the Toronto Raptors have received the go-to player on offense they have needed since Chris Bosh left for Miami. The only problem is that the team’s previous leading scorer, DeMar DeRozan is very similar to Gay, although nowhere near as talented. This problem gets worse, as Toronto signed DeRozan to a 4 year, 38 million dollar deal before the season started. Both players are elite athletes, but neither player is a good 3-point shooter, or passer and when two players play on the perimeter together, their talents are supposed to complement each other, not be replicas of each other. The Raptors will ...

posted by Romy AquinoWhat a night for Toronto Raptors highlights.It's unbelievable how the Raptors always manage to get themselves in this many close games this season but at least the Raptors are getting on the right side of the win-loss column lately. Most of the credit has to go to the Raptors newest acquisition, Rudy Gay. Rudy Gay nailed his first field goal of the second...
Rudy Gay hasn't been with the Raptors for a long time since he was traded to Toronto but is he making an impression fast.
In five game with the Raptors, Gay is averaging 23.4 points, 3 steals, 2.4 assists, 6.4 rebounds and shooting 41% from the field in 40.2 minutes per game.
Needless to say, Rudy is bringing it to the court and keeping the Raptors competitive. He is...
Things didn’t start off like the Denver Nuggets had hoped when they took on the Toronto Raptors Tuesday, as Denver was missing two starters, Andre Iguodala and Danilo Gallinari, and a rotation player, Wilson Chandler. Toronto had an early double-digit lead and it only got worse when DeMar DeRozan Blake Griffin’d Timofey Mozgov during the second quarter.The post DeMar DeRozan...
It looks like Rudy Gay has been enjoying his time in Toronto. The Raptors have won 4 of their past 6 games since acquiring the young star, even beating the likes of Indiana, LA Clippers and Denver (see clip above). Rudy is finally on a team where he is "the man", or as the announcer likes to call him "that guy". Well maybe the announcers aren't coming...
Toronto Raptors wing DeMar DeRozan destroyed Nuggets big man Timofey Mozgov with a memory-scarring dunk. It was violent, traumatizing jam.
DeRozan went on to score a team-high 22 points in the win, with a stat stuffing line of eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 39 minutes in the win over Denver.
Rudy Gay played just 25 minutes due to foul trouble. He...
If the Toronto Raptors got hot--and I mean really, really hot-- while some of their Eastern Conference foes got ice cold they could still make the post season. As unlikely as that may be, the fans north of the border need something to cheer about. Luckily they have that in Rudy Gay.
The forward had a clean run at the basket in this clip and was kind enough to do a little something...
Poor Timofey Mozgov, first he gets abused by Blake Griffin and earlier tonight, he got banged on by Toronto Raptors forward Demar Derozan.Watch as Demar "derises" in the second quarter of the Raptors/Nuggets game at the Air Canada Center:
Nuggets big man Timofey Mozgov may have finally finished having nightmares from the time Blake Griffin dunked oh him so bad, that he got the dunk named after him and now a poster dunk can be a Mozgov’d.
Two years later Mozgov might not have nightmares, but he was Mozgov’d again by Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan after a strong drive down the lane.
The look on Timofey Mozgov’s face...
Timofey Mozgov learned a valuable lesson in last night’s Nuggets-Raptors game. And that lesson is not to jump with Demar Derozan. Especially when he has a running start.
The post Timofey Mozgov now knows not to jump with Demar Derozan first appeared on No Guts, No Glory.
It warms our hearts knowing that this video has found new life. (NSFW — language)

The Knicks need a much-needed win headed into the All-Star Break after their lackluster effort in a home loss to the Clippers on Sunday afternoon. Yes, the Knicks are 7-3 in their last 10 games, but most of those wins have come from much lesser opponents. The Knicks recently lost to Philly and Washington, two teams with bad records who are playing better as of late…enter the...
