Yup, everything will be official come midnight tonight. Not mention on what time the press conferences are tomorrow though. I imagine it'll be an afternoon type thing. :)

Oh really? Where to?


The Press Conference should be interesting. We could be hearing from about 5 different people. (O'Neal, Jawai, Jose, Hassan, Devlin)

Looks like the time isn't official yet. But I'm guessing we'll find out sometime today obviously.

Eric Smith just announced a Raptor press release:

There will be two press conferences tomorrow.

1:30pm and 3:30 pm.

Presumably JO and Jose - I don't know which order.

Thanks LX, looking forward to watch it tomorrow.


Do you think it's going to be only about JO and Jose? I just think maybe the might talking about guys like Jawai and Devlin etc.

I don't think all the other guys are really press worthy. I'm sure it'll be mentioned in passing, but I don't believe they'd have a separate press conference regarding the Jawai, Adams and Devlin news.

Yeah I understand completely. I just can't wait to see some of the new guys, especially Jawai.

do you think the raps will do what the cets did? meaning they will bring jose JO and CB4 at once and give the jerseys to them.

They should add Jose in that too :haha:

Nah, I don't think they will do that. It's a possibility, I'm just not sure because first of all, it's only two players. And second, its not like it deserves to be given a title like "The Next Big Thing, The Ultimate Duo" Although that would be sick :p

Gurk 07-08-2008 06:54 PM

it would be sick wouldnt it. the raps will finally have some media attention. not that they have less but they will have more like the celts did(i.e. celts big three on the cover of SI)

LX 07-08-2008 07:57 PM

They said the two pressers were regarding two specific announcements. So it's looking like the two big names.

Any idea if we can watch the press conference online tomorrow? I'll be at the library studying ... :(

Major 07-08-2008 09:24 PM

Not that I know of Taz. But it should show up later on either on YouTube or NBA.com, or even the Raps Website for that matter.

Kirby 07-08-2008 10:03 PM

Physicals....
I'm confident they'll be passed by both players. :]

Gurk 07-08-2008 10:35 PM

they have had to pass because if they didnt there wouldnt be a presser tomorrow

Major 07-08-2008 10:53 PM

Can someone explain to me exactly what they mean by "passing the physicals" ?? I've heard of it a lot but don't understand it 100%

Thanks

Belsius 07-08-2008 11:16 PM

they already passed them. Its just a series of tests to make sure the player is healthy before signing him.

Kirby 07-08-2008 11:57 PM

Ooo when was this? :(
Good news though :)
