Were The 2013-14 Raptors The Best Team In Franchise History?

Objectively, the 2013-14 Raptors had the best regular season record, best road record, best record against the West, won games by the biggest margin of victory and had the best starting lineup of any Raptors team and won the Atlantic Division. “It’s a hell of an accomplishment,” Amir Johnson said. “It is something we get to show our kids when we get old and we come back...

Raptors Draft Preview: Adreian Payne

In a most heralded 2014 draft class with no shortage of marquee names at the top of the draft board, the Toronto Raptors in a rarity for the franchise are sitting outside the draft lottery. With the #20 selection in the first round, in a draft class that has not received nearly enough credit for its depth, the Raptors pose to do some serious damage with the 20th pick. In ordinary...

Toronto Raptors: Who should go next season?

Part II of the two part series: what in the world are the Toronto Raptors going to do with their roster this offseason? In case you missed yesterday’s discussion on players I believe the Raptors front office would be wise to bring back, check it out here. For my money, it’s always easier to pass judgment on a player(s) who shouldn’t be a part of a given team because that...

Amir Johnson gets away with epic double dribble

Many basketball coaches preach to their players to not pick up their dribble unless they’re going to pass or shoot it.  The Raptors’ Amir Johnson picked up his dribble Wednesday night, but chose option (c) which was dribble again to get a better look at the hoop. Per NBA rules in which the double dribble and traveling are both optional, it wasn’t called.  And actually, it...

Amir Johnson ejected for ‘childish’ fight with referee David Jones, threw mouthpiece at him (Video)

Amir Johnson was ejected during the third quarter of the Toronto Raptors-Portland Trailblazers game on Monday after getting into a fight with referee David Jones over whether Johnson could touch the ball following a free throw.

Raptors Amir Johnson wins the award for the NBA’s most bizarre ejection of the year

The Raptors are in the midst of a season for the ages, but for all the wrong reasons.  To say the team is struggling would be an understatement—the Raps have lost five in a row and 10 of their last 11 and have pretty well thrown in the towel on the 2012-13 season and it we’re only halfway through December.  Toronto lost to Portland 94-72 on Monday night in yet another putrid...

Raptors big man Amir Johnson really stood out at a ‘Zombie Walk’ in Toronto (photo)

Toronto Raptors center/forward Amir Johnson is apparently something of a zombie buff, as evidenced by the fact that his favorite television show is The Walking Dead. In fact, his affinity for zombies goes so far that he participated in a “Zombie Walk” through the streets of Toronto on Saturday. Unfortunately, being 6-foot-9 causes an aspiring zombie [...]
