DeMar DeRozan With The Sweet Dish To A Wide-Open…Joakim Noah?

The Bulls' Joakim Noah may or may not have purposefully tricked DeMar DeRozan into throwing him the ball while he was standing out of bounds

Robin Lopez’s Endless War Against NBA Mascots Claims Another Victim

Robin Lopez shows no mercy to the Toronto Raptor. Will his rampage against NBA mascots ever end?

We once shook Charles Oakley's monstrous hand and watched him intimidate a room full of reporters during an event in New York City.

James Johnson

Birdman Still Believes He Can Fly, Ends Up On A James Johnson Poster

The Heat's Chris "Birdman" Anderson tried to block the Raptors' James Johnson's dunk attempt. He ended up on a poster instead.

TORONTO RAPTORS

Kyle Lowry Finds Amir Johnson For Big Alley-Oop To Open Game Against Heat

The Toronto Raptors need to get back on track before the playoffs start just a few weeks from today. If the team's opening possession of its game against the Miami Heat on Friday is any indication, tonight might be the time Kyle Lowry and company finally stop "getting their asses kicked."

KYLE LOWRY

Kyle Lowry On The Raptors’ Struggles: ‘We’ve Literally Been Getting Our Ass Kicked”

The Toronto Raptors are 38-26, firmly entrenched as a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference. But that standing belies the real state of Dwayne Casey's team, which has dropped nine out of its past 10 games following Tuesday's 117-107 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

TIM DUNCAN

After Tim Duncan Hyperextends Elbow, His Girlfriend Rightfully Complains About No Call

Tim Duncan's girlfriend took umbrage after her beau was injured when Amir Johnson threw a forearm shiver into Tiago Splitter.

KAWHI LEONARD

Kawhi Leonard Drives Baseline And Cocks Back For Nasty Two-Handed Jam Over Jonas Valanciunas

The San Antonio Spurs are back, and Kawhi Leonard's re-emergence as his team's most important two-way force is the biggest reason why. This is the remarkably fluid athlete with limbs for days that won Finals MVP last June.

‘F*ck Brooklyn!’ Raptors GM Masai Ujiri Says He’ll Yell It Again If Given The Chance

Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri made headlines – and nearly incited a riot – last spring when he closed remarks at a pre-game rally prior to his team's playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets by shouting "F*uck Brooklyn!" And despite a $25,000 reprimand from the league, Ujiri says he'll do it again if given the chance come April.

DEMAR DEROZAN

DeMar DeRozan Is Still Really, Really Good At Dunking, You Guys

DeMar DeRozan just wants you remember that he's still an awesome dunker.

TERRENCE ROSS

Terrence Ross Gets Loose On The Break For A Beautiful Windmill Slam

Terrence Ross' third season hasn't lived up to the promise he so often showed during his sophomore campaign. But due to the natural athleticism the 6-6 wing exhibits here, it's hardly time for the Toronto Raptors to give up on him.

#LeBron James

LeBron James Following Another Dirty Foul: ‘Maybe I’ve Got To Protect Myself A Little More’

| 5 Comments

After James led his team to a 120-112 victory over the Raptors on Wednesday with a flurry of late-game heroics, he and the Cavaliers touched on Valanciunas' flagrant foul and so many others like it. And going forward, don't be surprised if Cleveland's enforcers respond to a questionable foul against James with one of their own to the offender shortly thereafter.

NERLENS NOEL

Watch Nerlens Noel Absolutely Devour Jonas Valanciunas’ Brave Dunk Attempt

Nerlens Noel isn't exactly a behemoth – the lithe rookie is listed at a perhaps generous 228 pounds. And considering his well-established shot-blocking prowess, the best way to challenge him mano-a-mano really might be trying to power right through him. But Valanciunas doesn't have the length or explosive athletic ability to take a hit from Noel and stay elevated, let alone rise above him.

DEMAR DEROZAN

Whoops! DeMar DeRozan Comes Up Woefully Short On Uncontested 360-Degree Dunk Attempt

The Toronto Raptors were embarrassed at home last night by the Golden State Warriors en route to their fourth consecutive loss, and DeMar DeRozan is shooting a putrid 35 percent from the field in February. But amid sweeping struggles, why settle for an easy two points when you offer up a highlight reel dunk?

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS

Festus Ezeli’s Throat Jab To Tyler Hansbrough Leads To Scuffle, Ejections During Warriors’ Blowout Of Raptors

Festus Ezeli wanted a fight in his first time playing rotation minutes since December. After the Toronto Raptors refused to give his team anything resembling one during the Golden State Warriors' 113-89 win, the big man took matters into his own hands.

TERRENCE ROSS

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri Would ‘Be Shocked’ If Team Traded Terrence Ross

Terrence Ross has fallen out of favor with coach Dwane Casey and the Toronto Raptors this season. But that hardly means he isn't part of the team's long-term plans or is even being actively shopped on the trade market.

DEMAR DEROZAN

DeMar DeRozan Hits The Game-Winner To Beat The Wizards

The Raptors and the Wizards played their last game before the week-long All-Star break, and off-guard, DeMar DeRozan, who did not get a repeat invite to the main event hit the game-winner with under 15 seconds to play.

TORONTO RAPTORS

Video: Terrence Ross Drives Baseline, Rises For Huge 360 Slam In Loss To Bucks

Toronto Raptors wing Terrence Ross clearly hasn't lived up to heightened expectations in a disappointing third season.

GIF: Kyle Lowry Fools Pistons By Feigning Timeout

| 2 Comments

This isn't standard, but a layup by Kyle Lowry with a little under four minutes to go in the first quarter in last night's Raptors-Pistons game only happened after he lulled Detroit into thinking he was about to call a timeout.
