Charles Oakley In the house and I can't wait till 7pm to get this party started. Can you get fired for over working? I think not. So let's GO!!! Raps need this game bad. They have 7 of their next 8 on the Road(vs Bulls Nov 11- lone home date). Detroit has no Rip and Prince again tonight but are coming off a win over the same Magic that trashed the Raptors on Sunday afternoon. I AM Excited So let's get this thing going.
Alvin Williams will also be honoured as well tonight 2 of the all-time fav Raps for many.
Raps need to bring it on D and NO 3's!!!
If you have something to say feel free to chime in before the tip. Part of why I kicked this thing off early was to give you folks a chance to have your say so let's hear it.
Must win at game 4 of an 82 game sked seems a bit of a stretch but whatever live right next door to must win is what this game is for the Raptors tonight.
Charles Oakley had a lot to say and I would not mind seeing Oakley on the bench as a part of the coaching staff? Who is with me?
Amen to that. Charles Oakley as Jeff Van Gundy has said the smartest player he ever coached in reference to Oakley..Not just a tough guy he has brains as well.
Weems is out and Banks is in for the Raps tonight...Evans remains sidelined as well but does have the boot off his foot and his return is coming soon hopefully.
Ronny you got to bring it this is The Score Baby!!! LOL
Both point guards for the Raps have struggled and Jose and his D is just not good enough.
Please do...I actually know who that is so if people think I am being mean...trust me I am not.
See that is more like it!!
Jose Calderon is an expert in last names in the NBA....Because he sees them all going past him.
Speedy guards have always caused him problems.
Welcome we do all kind of sports and NBA is one of my favourites given I write a basketball blog partnered with the score go figure.
Dino Nation Blog is the site and I am James Borbath known to some as the Dino Blogger.
Not posting it but yes Neelaa08 that is your best bet.
They better or this team is in serious trouble and if you don't believe me go consult your Raptors schedule
Pistons lost in all of the Oakley return have a former Rap in Charlie V and they add another UConn product in Ben Gordon the former Bull
Yup that is what I wrote today almost word for word.
Although Reggie Evans should have a positive impact on the D. But the issue has been 3's so that is not as much about Reggie.
Very true Charlie does get Jacked up for the Raps.
It is not what it use to be that is for sure.
CB4 despite all of it Chris Bosh has been good.
Yeah and can we get a little value for that 53 million for Hedo?
In short the Raps have far more questions than they do answers at the moment.
I think if it goes real bad Oakley and Williams need to suit up!!!
It is going to be fun this is my first Raptor game of the year on The Score Live Blogs so I plan on making it a good one.
