Raptors To Hit Edmonton

The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday they will return to Edmonton for the first time since 1999 for a preseason game. The Raptors will play host to Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson and the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday, October 21 at Rexall Place. The Raptors defeated the Vancouver Grizzlies, 110-84, in their lone Edmonton appearance October 18, 1999.

The club will also play host to 2008 Euroleague champion CSKA Moscow at Air Canada Centre on October 14. This marks the sixth consecutive preseason the Raptors have been visited by an international foe. The Raptors downed Zalgiris Kaunas from Lithuania, 105-99, last season.

Three Euroleague teams will compete in five NBA preseason games from October 10-21, 2008. The five games, which are part of the Euroleague American Tour, will be played by CSKA Moscow, FC Barcelona (Spain) and Lietuvos Rytas (Lithuania).

Prior to their stop in Alberta, the Raptors will compete in the two-day Preseason Shootout at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on October 18-19. They will join FC Barcelona, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers in the tournament.

The complete 2008 preseason schedule, as well as the 2008-09 regular season schedule, will be released in the near future. All single-game ticket information, including the game in Edmonton, will available at a later date. Raptors season tickets are currently available for purchase by calling (416) 366-DUNK.

Meh. Denver shouldn't be that hard.

And it could've been Boston, LAL, Detroit, Spurs, Hornets, Jazz, Magic, Suns, or Rockets. Consider us lucky :haha:

Besides, I think I heard Carmelo's not gonna be there :confused2:

Belsius 07-31-2008 07:32 PM

No I meant a more interesting team

aww crap I've actually lived 4 hours away from Edmonton (Jasper) my whole life, but I'll be at University in Victoria starting this fall. Some luck.

What's going to suck the most for NBA fans is how much do you want to bet that neither AI or Melo play let alone make the trip to Edmonton? :(

Personally I could care less, I'm hoping to buy some courtsides for this game, and I'm more excited to see JO, Bosh, and Jose than Melo and AI. Would be nice though if they came.

No, AI and Melo will be in the building and they will be playing according to the Nuggets

Major 08-01-2008 05:54 PM

I'm not sure about AI but i'm pretty sure I heard something somewhere that Melo won't make the trip to Edmonton.

And when do thesee tickets come out? I might wanna buy a pair. Courtside baby!! :headbang:
