posted by Romy Aquino
When you pull out a big 109-108 overtime win against the Dallas Mavericks, there's a lot to smile about.  DeMar's jumper in overtime proved to be the game winner in the Raptors third win in their last four games.  In last night's post game interview with Eric Smith, Kyle Lowry popped his head in for his own video bomb.

Northern Exposure: Canada Basketball on the Rise

by Mike Masaya

There is no denying a lot has changed since 2011 for Canadians and their relationship with the NBA and basketball in general. After years of cringing international performances two-time MVP, future Hall of Fame inductee and British Columbia native Steve Nash was named GM of the national senior men’s basketball team. Several weeks later Tristan Thompson from Brampton, Ontario one-upped Steve Nash by becoming the highest ever drafted Canadian born player with the 4th overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Bryan Colangelo's two cents on the Rudy Gay trade

by Romy Aquino
Well, it didn't take long for former Raptors General Manager, Bryan Colangelo to put his two cents on the recent seven player deal between the Toronto Raptors and the Sacramento Kings.  Colangelo gave his input on former Raptor Rudy Gay and the move made by the Sacramento Kings.

“I put a high premium on talent and character, and Rudy Gay has an abundance of both,” said Bryan Colangelo, the former Raptors general manager who acquired Gay from Memphis last January in a deal that was widely regarded as a salary dump by the Grizzlies. “Obviously, Pete (D’Alessandro) has a mandate to increase the talent level of his team as opposed to depleting it. This move is a pretty good indication of that.”
