Any players staying in the city?
 
Not sure if I missed a thread about this... any word on who has stayed in the city? I remember a couple of guys hung around for the summer last year. I was wondering who was sticking around. Any idea?

dont most of them stay? it is their home..

Stonezz 04-25-2011 01:02 PM

Most go back to their hometown. They may stay a few days or so after the season is done but I'm pretty sure most if not all return to the States

No. I would say they all have left the city. And some will be in & out of the city all summer.

not many NBA players stay in the city right after the season ends, they all leave the city during the playoffs to go wherever.

that's a little disappointing

Why is it disappointing? The season just ended and people want to be with their families..

Why is that disapointing. You can't seriously think they'd stay here the whole off season did you? Their family and most of their friends live in another country.

I just remembered the fact that a few players stayed here for the summer a year or two ago and practiced together. I'm a homer so I like when players like my city.

The players like the city, but even those players a couple years ago were in and out during the summer. They're just not gonna stay in the city wherever they play for 12 months. It's not a realistic expectation.

Yeah, unless they have something keeping them here. Like a girl or something. Wonder if any of the Raptors ever hooked in and married a good old canadian girl?

Bonner?

Most will likely be back when it's warmer, except likely the Euros.

Nites 04-25-2011 06:46 PM

I assume that most of them rented out Condos in TO. I don't think any of the players on the team have children other Calderon and Reggie who probably have newborns. So having a house in TO isn't really necessary.

DonMughal 04-25-2011 07:17 PM

I'm suprised no players move their families here.

Reggie did. At least during the season.

And it looks like he is going to have to move again during the off-season. :sigh:

Let's just say I hope he doesn't if you get me. :yeah:

rich people don't stay in one place for long
they can afford to travel. plus, they got families

FoldedLaundry 04-25-2011 11:02 PM

They'll leave to go home to their families and all but when it gets close to the new season (if there is one) they'll start coming back and all.
