On an average night, Terrence Ross hitting a buzzer-beating three against the Knicks to push the game into double-overtime would have sent me into an euphoric frenzy, but when we’re talking about Game No. 6 of the pre-season, it’s hard to be emotionally invested.

Having said that, a 58-minute NBA game (Three-plus hours of real time) did take place at the Air Canada Centre on Monday night, and while it may not have counted for anything, I still have plenty of thoughts…

With training camp and the pre-season just weeks away, and with the Raptors unveiling their tentatively tiered pricing for every home game on the schedule (prices will eventually fluctuate based on demand), I thought now would be a good time to help fellow Raptors fans looking for the best bang for their buck this season at the Air Canada Centre.

This season, there are five tiers of pricing for regular season games: Best Value, Value, Premium, Premium+ and Super Premium. To give you an idea of the variance in price across the different tiers, I’ll use the price point my season tickets fall under (Balcony Prime 1).

To recap, the Knicks receive Andrea Bargnani. The Raptors receive Steve Novak, Marcus Camby, Quentin Richardson (via sign-and-trade), a first round draft pick in 2016 and second round picks in 2014 and 2017.

Pinch yourself all you want. This is real.

Memories of Tank Nation

Memories of Tank Nation

With Andrea Bargnani finally gone (as of July 10, anyway) and a ridiculous offer reportedly out there for Rudy Gay, Drew and I got together to discuss “The Trade” and to once again ask the question, ‘to tank or not to tank?’

And for all of you Oliver fans out there, don’t worry, The Big O even sent us a prepared statement to read on air in lieu of him being away.
