The Raptors are having an incredibly disappointing season and look as though they will miss the playoffs, once again. They were expected to fight for the 8th seed in the playoffs after a solid draft, starting the new season healthy, adding point guard Kyle Lowry and getting last year’s top five pick, center Jonas Valanciunas over from Europe. However, horrible defense, injuries and general poor play, currently have them in 12th place in the East and 6 games out of the playoffs. Injuries have been a factor, as Andre Bargnani, Valanciunas and Lowry have all missed significant playing time. Lowry was also demoted after the inspiring play of Jose Calderon in his absence, however Lowry is the better player and should be starting. All is not bad, as they have a lot of solid young players and will get better by simple development. They have been reportedly interested in trades and they have the pieces to add almost any player they desire. With tradable assets in promising rookie, Terrence ...

posted by Romy AquinoDon't get mad Raps fans. Kevin Durant was on the Dan Patrick Show today and a little Toronto Raptors shoutout came up in the interview. Apparently, when asked what team he wanted to play for growing up, it was the Toronto Raptors. Why? Mostly because of Vince Carter and because he liked those jerseys. Yep, those old school purples with the red dinosaur...
posted by Romy AquinoSooo.....the Raptors have lost three straight including a close one against the Bulls, the Bucks and another tough loss against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. Aaron Gray got the start against the Nets and the centre who averages 2.1 ppg....threw down a vicious dunk that got the Raptors bench to geek out hard. Check it out.We love this dunk so much.....
The Raptors are mulling trade possibilities as the Feb. 21 deadline approaches.
The Toronto Raptors have arguably been one of the worst NBA franchises in the past decade finishing fourth or less in the Atlantic Division six times since they joined the 2004-2005 seasons and averaging a 0.407 wining percentage. Currently, the team is in last place in the Atlantic division with a 14-25 record–11 games back from first place.
Fans have criticized Toronto’s management...
Jose Calderon has not made any decision where he wants to play next season and will evaluate the situation when he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
Raptors rookie Terrence Ross only had four points in Tuesday night’s match up against the Brooklyn Nets. But the reverse putback dunk that was responsible for a pair of those points, was a thing of beauty.
Whose in this year’s dunk contest? Gerald Green? Paul George? WOuld Terrence Ross be someone you want to see on the “All-Star Saturday Night” stage?

Toronto Raptors guard Terence Ross had a nice one-handed putback reverse dunk during the final minutes of Tuesday night's 113-106 loss to the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center.
Ross' dunk came off a missed 17-foot shot by teammate John Lucas, and even the Nets fans seemed to be impressed.
