On The Rendezvous, Buzzards And Risk. Oh Yeah…And The Raptors

I grew up in Sarnia so long ago the Mayans hadn’t yet invented a calendar predicting the end of the world…any world.

Eccentrics enjoyed  a certain celebrity in southwestern Ontario towns. Television was considered a gateway to the starry network of four stations.  Detroit passed for our Emerald City.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah– The pregame talk was about 6-foot-11 centre Enes Kanter making his first career start for the Jazz.

But it was Utah’s “small” lineup that delivered the knockout blow in the second quarter, with the Jazz hitting five 3-pointers in a 3 1/2-minute span to set the tone […]

SACRAMENTO, Calif.– Tyreke Evans has been a solid scorer throughout his four-year NBA career. Still, the one thing he’s always lacked is a consistent outside shot.

Raptors Prep For Playing At Altitude

Jonas Valanciunas, pictured with assistant coach Johnny Davis, will play his first game in Denver on Monday.

It’s not often that an NBA team is looking to lengthen a five-game, out-of-conference road trip, but that’s exactly what the Raptors have done in an effort to breathe a little easier in Denver.

The Raptors don’t face the Nuggets until Monday, but they left for the Mile High city immediately following their practice on Saturday at ACC. That allowed head coach Dwane Casey to hold another practice at Pepsi Center on Sunday and […]
