Dime Readers: Ask Your Favorite Raptors Or Knicks Player A Question Tonight

DeMar DeRozan (photo. Nicky Woo)

They say the customer is always right. Today, one of our most loyal readers, POPPI GEE commented this on my Ramon Sessions article:

“Hey DIME are you all ever going to do those joints where the fans ask questions that the players answer. I love those?”

Not only do I think that’s a cool idea, but it so happens, Toronto is in town tonight. So we are giving you guys the opportunity to submit any questions you have (within reason) to any Raptors player you want.

So now is your time to find out more about Chris Bosh’s free agency. Or if you are from Toronto, find out what spots the Raptors like to go to or what their favorite movies are. You guys can submit until 5 p.m. ET tonight. I will try my best to get as many of your questions answered. Also, feel free to send questions to some of the Knicks players. I will post the answers tomorrow morning.

Disclaimer: Typically, during media availability in the locker rooms before games, the star players will hide in the trainer’s room to avoid media. You are free to submit questions to Bosh or Andrea Bargnani, but you’re question will most likely be answered if you submit a question to players like Marco Belinelli, DeMar DeRozan, Antoine Wright or Jarrett Jack.

    I know you already had a Q&A with Derozan, but ask him what kind of props he’s gonna use in the Dunk-in, if any.

    Aww man Gerald and DIME yall are on time. This is why I love this mag. Yall are for the people. Preshate it for real!

    Now on to the questions:

    Bosh if Available: Do you feel you have reached the peek of your game or is there still more we (the world) have yet to see from you?

    Bosh: Will other factors like weather and night life go into where you decide to play next year? If so what are some of them?

    Jarrett Jack: How far do you see Georgia Tech going in the tourney this year?

    Nate Robinson: If you win the dunk contest this year, will you retire from it?

    Thanks again DIME.

    Bosh: If you had the chance who would you rather play with: LeBron, Wade, CP3, Melo, Durant, or someone else?
    Bargnani: Do you feel like, if given the chance, you could be a franchise player?
    Jack: If Bosh leaves the Raps, where does that leave you?

    Gallinari: Do you sing any other Beyonce songs?

    Love the question: “Will other factors like weather and night life go into where you decide to play next year? If so what are some of them?”

    Hop I get a chance to ask it

  • http://allthatjazzbasketball.blogspot.com/ AllThatJazz/Amar

    Ask Demar about the dunk off — and if he’s happy he has to go up against a non-dunking, chubby jumpshooter instead of Ronnie Brewer ?

  • zbo

    to any player,

    “Which teamate has the weirdest pre game ritual?”

    thx dime

  • control

    Any Raptor: Do you read Dime Magazine? If so, do you agree with how they present the franchise? If so, who is your favorite comment troll?

  • s.bucketz

    ask duhon if he’s ever gunna learn how to shoot or if hes jus gunna live off the teet of the pick-and-roll the rest of his career

  • http://heckler@aol.com Heckler

    to the italians–
    ask both andrea bargnani and danilo gallinari.

    in a game of one-on-one, who would win Gallinari or Bargnani?

    also ask if they knew each other back in italy

  • Alger Hiss

    Bosh: Is your dhick longer than Oden’s?

    David Lee: What’s it like knowing you’re the best player on the Knicks but about the 350th best player in the NBA and you kinda szuck, and Florida won the national championship as soon as your selfish assz left there?

  • maddskizzle

    Derozan: Ask how he feels about being left off the Rookie Team and also if he feels any additional pressure trying to live up to the dunk contest standards that Vince has set before him in T-Dot

  • Royal

    Ask Nate Robinson about his thought process when he has then ball in his hand (example like if he looks to create seperation from his defender for the J or does he attack his opponents back for the drive)

    Ask Chris Duhon about being the differences between being a Point guard at Duke and being A NBA point guard

  • MSkittle

    To Danilo Gallinari: Did you find the “Jersey Shore” show to be offensive to Italian Americans? Did you watch it?

  • control


    I can answer that question to Nate. He doesn’t have a thought process. Not just with the ball, but without the ball, sitting on the bench, taking a shit, etc. Guy just don’t think.

  • haslem

    to any raptors player (specifically Jarett Jack though)

    what are you favorite hang outs in Toronto? favorite clubs?

  • SullyGTA

    Hey Chris,

    What is one thing you love about Toronto that no other City has?

  • maddskizzle

    Ask the Raps if any of them are tight with Drake since he’s at a lot of their home games

  • Patrick

    Reggie….when are you coming back?

  • Joe Buddy

    I like question #11. Great question to be asked since DIME likes to shit on everything Raptor related.

    I’m pretty shocked DIME is even doing this Q&A thing with the Raptors. Will you guys still have enough time to stroke Lebron and Wade’s you know what after this?

  • Royal

    Nates missing out then cuz I have had some of my best thinking moments while on the toilet “chucking the deuce”

  • Derrick

    Alright this is for DeMar DeRozan

  • kdeezy

    This Question is for the Raptors and more specifically Sonny Weems.
    – Who on the team has the funniest nickname on or off the court?

  • Rob S

    To CB:

    Not wanting to bring up the pending FA issue, but have you considered that should you chose to stay in T., you will most likely become one of the most respected and accomplished professional athletes to ever play in Canada? (Also 130 mil is pretty sweet but you don’t have to mention that)

    To Demar:

    Do you feel that the props and creativity in the dunk contest is getting out of hand – the costumes, ridiculous props, stickers and whatnot. What happened to a ball and rim? If you listen to me you WILL win the dunk contest: 360 behind the back, Nick Young can do it…, 360 between the legs off the bounce, and 540. Its over…..

    To the Rapts Italianos:

    Have you been able to teach any of your teammates any Italian? and if so what?

  • Dante

    To Bosh: How long are you going to grow out the dreads?

    To Calderon: Do people make fun of you for looking like Mr. Peepers (Chris Kattan’s character from SNL)?

  • JAY

    To all/any Raptor: It’s only been a few practices for Reggie Evans, but has he blatantly grabbed anyone’s “package” during practice yet?? If not, are you scared that he will?
    I would be. The intensity on his face is kind of scary.
