Being a little old, well mostly older than most of you, can you tell me which song is being played when the Raptors make their entrance on the court at the players' presentation at the start of a game in Toronto? Can you give me the link to it so I'd know if it's that song. Just find that there's a pretty nice beat to it.

Thanks.

Well...that's not what I heard. Strange. Only thing I hear are beats, nobody is signing. And the beats I have in mind aren't the ones from that song. I'll try to catch it again. Could it be possible that it's just the Toronto DJ having fun with some beats?

Thanks anyway. Maybe it's that, I'll try to see at the next game.

Apparently there's talk that whatever deal might've been in place to keep the Kings in Sacramento could be falling apart.

Interesting to see what happens. It also might have an NHL impact too, as there's apparently an arena deal set and ready to go in Seattle if they can get an NBA and NHL tenant for the building. It seemed like a dead end when there weren't any real expectations of mobile franchises in the NBA, but if the Kings are back on the market, it could change everything.

On a sidenote it appears that the New Orleans Hornets got sold for $338 Million. The owner is remaining anonymous currently due to the financial details. Rumors are it's the owner of the Saints. I wonder if the Lottery Draft will be 'sold' to the Hornets and they draft Davis.

Oh and the Raptors shut down Bargnani for the rest of the season. Apparently his calf injury is acting up again (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). Great for the tank! Oh and Bradley Beal declared for the draft.

I put my draft list as:

1. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
2. Bradley Beal
3. Harrison Barnes
4. Jeremy Lamb

This is hilarious the Raptors scrubs are pounding the Celtics right now. Only 57 points scored for the C's and there's only 6 mins left in the 4th.

Raptors be trolling.

Now that is how you tank. I don't think I've see Alabi play any meaningful minutes, until today. Now you know the Raptors FO are trying hard to tank.

And last summer it was Westbrook, Westbrook, Westbrook.

Just a wet dream for them.

No the flavour of the month at RealGM now is Goran Dragic. Who I think is realistic and would look great in a Raps uni.

I really hate the PA guy in Detroit. This is the NBA, not a streetball competition.


"tip-tip-tip-tippy-toe out of bounds. DE-troit ball."

What the hell is that?

Alabi is also terrible. It doesn't seem like he's developed at all in the last couple seasons. I mean, why is a no-offence center taking a 15 footer from above the free throw line? I guess it's slightly better than attempting to awkwardly dribble forward 4 steps for a closer shot attempt, but still...

Raps got hosed on that goaltending call. and then couldn't get it done at the end.

Or, if I run this through the english -> Tankonese dictionary:

Raps got a fortuitous non-call on that goaltending by Detroit, then managed to close it out out by skillfully misusing possessions at the end.

DAMN IT! As a Pistons fan I was REALLY hoping we would lose this one.


Gotta give it up to the Raps though. Detroit gave them every opportunity to take it and Toronto was just like, no mas, our tank will not be denied.

EXACTLY! Our two best free throw shooters both for 1 for 2 from the charity stripe and we give you two of the widest open 3 point looks imaginable. I dunno what more we could have done.
