'Twas the night before Christmas... and the Toronto Raptors rank 23rd in the latest edition of Wayne Winston's NBA Ratings and 10th in the Eastern Conference in SB Nation's NBA Power Rankings. Also, be sure to check out the NBA MVP Power Rankings from SB Nation.

Raptors HQ's own Adam Francis and Ray Bala share stories about their favourite basketball-related Christmas gifts with the Dino Blogger.

Raptors Republic rolls out part one of their player evaluations.

Former Raptor Hedo Turkoglu gets stuffed by the rim on the break. Perhaps he was just trying to pay tribute to former teammate Grant Hill and that tasty beverage known as Sprite? looks at parity in the NBA.

Happy Holidays everyone!
