You can download the schedule here...

The 2016-17 Raptors broadcast schedule is here

“The channels are what we thought they were!” he yells in an extremely Dennis Green voice. Unless you are blessed with pockets as deep as Lake Ontario, you’ll be watching many Raptors games this season from the comfort of your couch, and not the Air Canada Centre. For you, my thrifty brethren, I’m pleased to announce that the Raptors announced their 2016-17 broadcast schedule...

Poll: Who is the Raptors’ 15th man?

We still need to settle this for Toronto. It was not an unfunny sight to see all those dudes in Raptors jerseys milling around in a circle on Media Day. This kind of thing happens every time. Toronto, like every other NBA team, has its share of fringe players at camp. There they stood — Fred VanVleet, Jarrod Uthoff, E.J. Singler, Yanick Moreira, Drew Crawford, and Brady Heslip...

DeMar DeRozan glad to put Lakers rumors behind him

DeMar DeRozan is a Compton High grad, a USC product, and a California native. For that reason, with his free agency looming this past summer, he’d been constantly hearing about the Los Angeles Lakers.

NBA Atlantic Division Preview: Toronto Raptors

Projected Conference Finish: 4th Best Offseason Move: Jakob Poeltl was a fine pick I suppose. Worst Offseason Move: I’m fine with the loss of Bismack Biyombo. There was no reasonable way to keep him. What I don’t understand is using BOTH of their main offseason weapons, the No. 9 overall pick and mid-level exception, to replace him. If Jakob Poeltl is going to be a Biyombo replacement...

DeRozan not pleased with his ranking in SI's Top 100

If you ask Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan, the good folks over at Sports Illustrated are selling him way short. DeRozan was ranked at No. 46 in SI’s annual Top 100 NBA Players list, and it was a decision he clearly did not agree with based on a couple of thinly-veiled subtweets he sent out on Thursday night. FOH. 46 — DeMar DeRozan (@DeMar_DeRozan) September 16, 2016...
