Post Today in Raptorland - 3/11/08



Kobe's 81 fails to irk Raptors

Quote:
Sam Mitchell feigned ignorance.

"What are you talking about?" Mitchell asked. "I have no idea what you are talking about.

"It's a different era as far as our organization is concerned," Bosh said. "At first it was like (a hangover) because people won't let you forget about it, but I accepted it. I'm not in denial that happened. I was a spectator to it."

Bosh was questioned about his choice of the word "spectator." After all, he played a Raptor-high 43 minutes in the game.

Bosh clarified what he meant.

"I played, but everyone was a spectator on the court that night," Bosh said. "We didn't play any defence."
Raps Raise Prices

Quote:
Season ticket renewal packages went out recently, and depending on where in the ACC you are sitting, costs are up anywhere from 10-12.5%.

Walter Dubowec has been a Raptors season ticket holder for 12 years and this latest bump is the last straw for him.

"I was shocked by my ticket renewal package (yesterday). My wife and I decided that we will not renew for next season. The cost has got to the point where it is simply way beyond reasonable for a non-corporate seat owner."
Wade Shuts it down

Quote:
Wade will miss the remainder of the season so he can further rehabilitate his surgically repaired left knee, which has bothered him for about a year. He will undergo a powerful shock-wave treatment later this week, and hopes he will be pain free in time for next season.


No Speedy Return for Bosh

Quote:
LOS ANGELES–A few days has stretched into more than a week, three games have become at least six, likely seven and probably as many as 10 as the Raptors patiently wait for their best player to get healthy.

And if there is any alternative to get Chris Bosh back in uniform, something other than rest and daily treatment, the team isn't ready to take it. Yet.
Who Deserves the MVP

Quote:
Today, Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets are seen as the top three, with Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics in the discussion and a couple of others who are likely to garner some support.
Rockets win 19th straight

Quote:
Tracy McGrady finished with 19 points and the Rockets beat New jersey 91-73 Monday for their 19th consecutive victory, matching the third-longest run in NBA history.

McGrady relaxed on the bench during the fourth quarter as Houston won its 10th straight by double digits, tying a league NBA record last reached by the Nets in 2004.
Wade calls it a season

Quote:
Dwyane Wade's season with the Miami Heat is over.

Heat coach Pat Riley announced yesterday that Wade, an all-star guard and 2006 NBA final MVP who has battled left knee pain throughout the season, will not play in Miami's final 21 games this season. "I think it's time," Riley said.


Beware the Laker Difference Maker

Quote:
How to characterize the NBA's Eastern Conference, where the Toronto Raptors hang their hat and gain their shaky identity as a playoff team and up-and-coming contender?

Strictly B-league.

On Feb. 1, the Los Angeles Lakers acquired centre Pau Gasol — a skilled seven-footer, a world champion from Spain and an NBA all-star — from the Memphis Grizzlies. Given up by the Lakers: pretty much nothing. Not a single player who was part of the Lakers' rotation.
Wades Season is Over

Quote:
"I think it's time," Riley said.

The move was expected, although the timing — with so much of the season still to play — was mildly surprising. But Wade missed Miami's game against the Golden State Warriors on Friday because of knee stiffness, telling Riley at the time that it pained him just to get out of bed.
Rockets Keep Rolling

Quote:
Houston coach Rick Adelman has started reminding his team what's at stake beyond preserving one of the NBA's all-time winning streaks.

That seems to be the only pep talk the Rockets need.

Tracy McGrady scored 19 points in less than three quarters and Houston routed cold-shooting New jersey 91-73 on Monday night for its 19th consecutive victory, matching the third-longest winning streak in league history.


Houston Rocket to 19th Straight Win

Quote:
Rafer Alston scored 12 points and Shane Battier added nine for the Rockets (43-20), who are now 24-9 at home. Vince Carter scored 13 points, Richard Jefferson added 12 and Devin Harris contributed 10 for the Nets (26-38), who dropped their sixth straight game overall and seventh straight away from home.

I chose not to renew my seasons for next year. I'm at the lowest end of the totem pole, and ticket prices jumped more than 10% - I can't afford to pay that much.
On top of that, it's hard to find people who want to pay face value for the games, so most of my tickets is either donated to charity (and a tax receipt), or jetting them off for less than face (which isn't ideal for me). If anything, I'll pick up half seasons next year (which still guarantees your seat for the playoffs).

And yeah, I'd hit that. In a second. She looks like a chubbier, dirtier version of Lindsay Lohan.

About tickets prices. This years playoffs will have a face value of about $55. The same seats for the Leafs, regular season, are $85....and people are lined up to pay over $100 for them on the street.

The Raptors will try to find what the market will bear.

And where do you see any "chubby" on her? Granted a post looks fat compared to Lohan. I'm a full on YES for her....until she wants to go to a country bar.

Although there may be a chubbier version, I highly doubt you'd find a dirttier version of Lohan.
