I know there is alot of Canadian Dolphin fans browsing these forums.

Show some love for OUR TORONTO RAPTORS.

Bosh with 41 points tonight, has proven he's deserving of being a starter at the all star game.

Calderon and Ford, have to be considered a top 5 (1-2 combo for point guards).

Bargnani has a shot at rookie of the year.

The team is young with a bright future, what's not to love about this team.

26-23 after start 7-14 gives the Raps a 19-9 record over there last 28.

GO RAPTORS!!!!!!

I hope ESPN can pick up some Raptors game for all you b-ball fans. This is an exciting team.

Ya Raptors our on the move this year! Brian Colangelo is looking like a hero in Toronto for putting together a strong young talented team!

I've said it on other boards, Coangelo is a genius, and has put a really nice team together. Everyone of his moves has helped Toronto win (Rasho has been a beast defensively).

I'd like to see PJ Tucker get some PT though.

I am not sure if we will move Mo Pete but if we do that should free up some time for PJ to get in there! I also want to see PJ get some time but the way the team is playing I think were going to stick with what is making us successful!

I've seen them quite a few times this year (NBA League Pass).

Bosh is a star, T.J. Ford is extremely solid.. but they are missing a few pieces.

Why wasn't this thread here in the beginning of the season? Ohhhh you had to wait for them to be in 1st place. K :tongue:

I'd love to see Toronto go deep in the playoffs. Knock them Wizards out for me!

Well, I try to watch every Raptor game on t.v. in Canada. I got RaptorsTV, so I watch on average 70 a year of there games, and to be honest the last 3 years they haven't given me much to cheer about.

I'm thought the team would finish 10 games below .500 this year when the year started. I don't think that will happen anymore. I'm still not sold on Sam Mitchell, I wanted his *** gone at the end of last year. He's doing better this eyar obviously.

This team has had so much heartache, it lost McGrady because he didn't want to play in Toronto, they lost Vince because they got no one to support him, not that I care he didn't even try in Toronto his last 2 years there.

This team had to go euro because not many american born players want to play in Toronto for some reason.

Is it because it has a low murder and crime rate??? LOL i'm j/k don't take it the wrong way.

as an American I can tell you the general assumption about Toronto is that it's cold and nobody cares about Basketball.

However living in the Northern part of PA(2 hours away from Niagra Falls) until I was 14 I can tell that I've been to Toronto several times, it's a beautiful city, and the fans are really passionate (it's just hard to get support when you're a young team or not very good). Now when the Grizzlies were in Vancouver, that's a different story.

I think another reason most US players don't want to go is has been the GMs. Before Coangelo, the GMs were not very good.

I hope the Raptors take the division... I love watching Bosh play, the guy is an outstanding player.

Best of luck the rest of the way Raptor fans..

Only guy I like on the team is Bosh, probably b/c I don't know half of the other guys. But their franchise is due. Here's to a playoff birth for your boys :wink:

Raptors win again!!!!! (27-23)

Raptors were in control most of the game, and then Kobe decided to show up, Lakers made it interesting but Mo Pete hits a huge 3 down the stretch to give the Raps a much needed win as they head to Detroit for Saturday.

As much as I know Bosh is not deserving of the MVP, you gotta love the croud chanting "MVP" everytime Bosh steps to the line. The city, and country are really starting to embrace this team.

If Toronto somehow keeps this amazing play and Bosh keeps playing the way he is and we take the conference come close to 50 wins he might have serious potential if Washington and Pheonix don't have a strong finish!

I know that is asking a lot but theres a chance:wink:

Great game tonight by the young Raptors.

They almost blew it but found a way to win on the road in a tough building.

They lost to Detroit but didn't get blown out. A nice bounce back win against Chicago, up next we got Jersey.

We win that game and we go up 4 1/2 going into the allstar break. If the toronto maple laughs don't make the playoffs Toronto will errupt into an NBA city this spring. Leafs not making the playoffs and the raptors making it would be the best thing to happen to this team for exposure.

Raptors now with a huge 5 game lead in the titanic division. Things are looking good a split vs, san antonio and Houston would be a bonus
