Stand Up to the Leafs (Raptors)

How do we get a team in Hamilton? Stand up to the NHL. Stand up to the Leafs. I'm not gonna bother asking people to forfeit their Toronto Maple Leafs tickets because that's pointless and I doubt you'd do it anyway. Instead, I'm asking you to hit the Maple Leafs where it might actually hurt; the Raptors. You see, both teams are owned by the same parent company.

I'm asking you to send a message to the Raptors and tell them that you refuse to buy any more tickets to Raptor games until there is an NHL team playing in Hamilton. Go to the following webpage.

http://www.nba.com/raptors/contact/contactusnew.html

Click the Ticket information or Fan mail contact link or BOTH (yes, do both). Their security certificate is invalid, so you might get a warning. Ignore the warning and continue. Submit your name, email and a short message telling the Raptors that you will not buy another Raptor ticket until there's an NHL team in Hamilton.

Another Amazing Finish

Here's another amazing finish. In this case, the opposing player figures he can just throw the ball in the air and kill the time. Unfortunately, the player that caught the ball, Mo Peterson of the Toronto Raptors, has 1 second left and drains the 3-pointer.

Mitchell the worst coach in NBA

CP: Raptors coach Sam Mitchell isn't about to lose any sleep about being named the NBA's worst coach in a poll of 248 players by Sports Illustrated.

Randy: Why did they need a poll?

Bryan Colangelo Raptor Boss

AP: Bryan Colangelo resigned Monday as general manager of the Phoenix Suns to become president and GM of the Toronto Raptors. [cut] The Raptors reportedly offered Colangelo a multiyear deal worth $3 million per year.

Randy: I guess if the salary cap means we can't sign good NBA players, we might as well sign good managers with the extra money lying around. Everybody is happy today. Talk to me at the end of next season and the next.

Raptors trade 1st round pick for $17M Cap Room

Doug Smith: The Toronto Raptors have traded veteran guard Jalen Rose and a first-round draft pick to the New York Knicks for Antonio Davis. [cut] Davis is in the final year of a contract that pays him $13,865,000, while Rose was to make $15,694,250 this year and $16,901,500 next year. [cut] The draft pick is the Denver Nuggets' first-round pick, acquired by the Raptors in an earlier trade.

Randy: Since neither team is going anywhere this season and clearly Rose is worth no-where near $17M next year, the trade is effectively salary cap room for a late 1st-round pick.

Rob Babcock Fired!

The Star: The Toronto Raptors fired general manager Rob Babcock today.

Randy: Finally!

Kobe Drops 81, Makes History

NBA: Where were you on Jan. 22, 2006? It's a night that will live in basketball lore for quite some time. Kobe Bryant tallied 81 points against the Raptors in a 122-104 Lakers win. The 81 is the second highest single-game point total in NBA history, behind only Wilt Chamberlain's 100 over 40 years ago.

Randy: Somebody just put themself into the running for MVP. On the otherhand, we now know why the Raptors sucks. D-fence.
