The Future is already here

Many Raptors fans have begun to look ahead to the 2011 Draft in hopes that the brass will be able to find the point guard of the future. The dinos have not had a true star running the team since Damon left town, and with two first round picks in this years draft, it seems […]

Raps Talk News: HHN & HHJ Style

Reggie Evans inspired beards, Jay Triano’s new found love of cursing on live TV, the J.A.H.O.W of the week, and a dedication to all the ‘Mo’s in the NBA as ‘Movember’ drew to a close, can all be found here!  What’s a J.A.H.O.W you ask? Check out the video below to find out, in our comedic spin […]

Colangelo shuffles the deck

Word is that Colangelo has pulled off another trade. This time around he has acquired Peja Stojakovic and Jerryd Bayless from the Hornets for Jarrett Jack, David Andersen and Marcus Banks.  What does this trade do for the Raptors this season and in the future? Well for starters it breaks up the tandem of Jose […]

DC & Philly up next for the Raptors

The Toronto Raptors left the State of Florida with a split, and even came close to leaving with 2 wins but came up a bit short in the final minutes against ‘Miami Thrice’. The Heat prevailed with a 109-100 victory. CB4, uh CB1, in ‘enemy’ colours was fairly pedestrian in his first game against his former club, going for […]

Orlando…check…Miami next!

What a win for the Toronto Raptors last night! On a 6 game losing streak, and facing one of the premier teams in the NBA on the road…the result a 110-106 win over the Orlando Magic. I will be back later today with a full follow up post on my thoughts on this game and […]

6 in a row…the bad way

Well, the west coast road trip is over, the short two game homestand is done, and unfortunately the Raptors didn’t add any ‘W’s to the left hand column in the standings. The Raptors are currently sitting at 1-7 and which puts them in last place in the Eastern Conference, and they currently have the longest losing streak in […]

Kicks watch: Toronto Raptors (2010-2011 season)

As a sneakerhead, Raptors supporter, and basketball enthusiast I felt this would be perfect blog material for a post. As I was compiling this list I was somewhat surprised that several players are wearing the same shoe this season. Another noteworthy point is that with the exception of the Kobe V, the retail price points of these shoes […]

Raptors’ west coast woes

It’s been a rough start to the west coast trip for the Raps: A heartbreaker against the Kings at Arco Arena, and a blow out loss to the Jazz last night. The Raptors will have two of their biggest tests so far in this early season with the mighty Los Angeles Lakers tommorow night (Friday), and then the Trailblazers on Saturday. I […]

Tempered Expectations

The 2010-2011 season tipped off for the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday, but they fell to the New York Knicks in a hard fought game. They followed that game up with a win against the Cleveland LeBron’s Cavaliers to put their early record at 1-1. While all of you hoops heads in the great white north […]

Inside The Purple Room (2010-11 Edition!)

It’s that time again…we’ve been anticipating it for a while, and now it’s finally here: the NBA season is upon us! Hoop Heads North’s favourite guest video blogger, Payal Doshi, shares her thoughts on the Toronto Raptors pre-season and what she’s hoping is in-store for ‘Canada’s team’ this season. I personally feel this Toronto Raptors’ squad […]

Building for the Future

It is almost time for Toronto Raptors training camp, and after a roller coaster summer, it will be nice to finally be able to focus on the the on-court product. What happened this summer was not a surprise to many, as the franchise player, he who looks like a Raptor himself, Mr. Chris Bosh took […]
