    In agreement. I wish TSN or sports net would do big story on their lack of patriotism and start asking difficult questions to the players in question.
    There's more to it than patriotism. I wouldn't be going to Brazil this summer, either, and zika is only part of it. Bad water, superbugs, zika, bad political situation... All good reasons to consider not going.

      If those are their reasons then why not just come out and say it

          Heck wouldn't we all give them a pass if they said that the Zika virus was a large concern rather them saying your getting ready for a 76ers season ?

            Then they should come out and say it. But all these other stupid excuses just infuriates Canada basketball fans.

              EXACTLY. To be honest, I wouldn't go to the Rio Olympics cuz of Zika, but these guys should just come out and SAY I'm boycotting 2016 Olympics cuz I don't want to be a part of potential global,explosive pandemic. See y'all next year.

              • The more I think about it the more it pisses me off ... Nik and Andew have been off since the 1st week of April ... Isn't the best way to help you NBA club is playing in a must win scenario which will occur in these tournaments . When was the last time they played a meaningful game ( other then Canada Basketball ) ie something to emotional draw on when the situation occurs in the NBA .. Wiggins should want to play in one of those and succeed cause the last time he did he failed to play a great game ..

                What does it say about Jay as a coach ? I guess Andy Rautins has hung up his Canada basketball shoes since his dad was given the door ..

                We the North passion I guess only applies to the Raptors ...

                • Kelly Olynyk of the Boston Celtics has been advised to undergo surgery on his right shoulder, but he is looking at delaying it in order to help Canada in the tournament.

                  “If I rest it, I would definitely partake in the Olympic (qualifying tournament),” Olynyk told Comcast SportsNet New England.

                  “That would be the reason to not get surgery at this point. If you rest it, it’ll get better but never solve the problem. That’s what we’re looking at.”

                  Postponing the surgery presents a tricky situation for Olynyk, who as much as possible doesn’t

                    There's still a real few who haven't forgot where they came from.

                    Another thing nobody is saying is how wiggins has completely abandoned his brothers that he went to war with last summer. What a punk.

                      Because managers and advisers would never let professional athletes call out a whole country like that.

                      • Love cojo man. He is a proud Canadian. Wiggins seems to almost be trying to distance himself. Punk. Welcome to my bad books andy.

                        • The smartest thing Wiggins can do is not play and work on developing his game and taking the Wolves to another level.

                          Right now he is a high usage chucker on a bad team...he needs to learn how to win before it is going to translate to team canada in a meaningful way

                              To wit, 6’7″ Dillon Brooks, who was impressive last summer coming off the bench during the Pan-Am games, and on paper set to be one of Canada’s rotation guys on this roster, is currently saddled with leg/foot injury and is in a cast. Brooks recently withdrew his name from the N.B.A. draft and will return to Eugene for his junior season.
                              Dillon’s teammate at Oregon, the freakishly athletic 6’11” Chris Boucher, who led the entire Pac-12 in blocked shots, made a strong early impression in camp, being active and protecting the rim – some viewed him as a shoe-in for a roster spot – however Boucher had to return to Oregon to complete summer courses.
                              Veteran 6’9″ center Joel Anthony, who over the past 15 years has continually answered the bell for Canada – through good times and other – and deserves the utmost respect and honor for his ongoing loyalty to the program and his country, is in the midst of welcoming a newborn to his family, justifiably casting doubt as to whether he will be available. Unfortunately for Canada, these issues cast further doubt on the roster and make things even more challenging for Triano and the rest of the brain trust.
                              On the positive side, what remains is a reasonably strong back court with 6’2″ Cory Joseph (Joseph will be given well-deserved time off for rest and is not expected to travel to Italy when the team leaves for a series of exhibitions this coming Thursday but is in for Manila),
                              6’1″ Tyler Ennis who has been solid and by all accounts a loyal program guy,
                              6’3″ Brady Heslip – some expect Turkey to play a lot of zone and Brady continues to show the shooting range that we all have come to know and respect over the past two summers
                              6’3″ Phil Scrubb who has been battling injury also.
                              Depth at the 3 spot is a concern as 6’7″ Thomas Scrubb at this point in time is the probable starter, having matured physically and grown his game after a championship season in Finland.
                              6’7″ Melvin Ejim, who provided so much energy off the bench for Canada last season, taking charges, keeping balls alive on the glass and finishing inside and out, is slotted as the starting four man.
                              6’6″ Dyshawn Pierre, who just finished his senior year at Dayton, is in camp but missed time due to working out for some pro teams. The staff appears to be trying Pierre at both the 3 and 4 spots.
                              6’4″ Naz Long, just granted another season of eligibility at Iowa State on compassionate injury-based grounds, is in camp and brings a reputation as a long-range shooter.
                              Veteran Levon Kendall and 7’5″ Sim Bhullar are available at the 5 spot.
                              There has been talk that 6’7″ Anthony Bennett, presently an unrestricted N.B.A. free agent and/or 6’9″ Khem Birch, a Montreal native who plays for Uşak Sportif of the Turkish Basketball Super League, will be in camp – neither was on the original invite list however neither have as yet shown up to camp.
                              CIS fans will be pleased to hear that by all accounts 6’10” Owen Klassen (Acadia/German pro league) has had a solid camp and remains a candidate to at least make the trip to Italy.
                              Highly-touted 6’5″ wing R.J. Barrett has been steady at the 3 spot and 6’4″ Shai Alexander, originally from Hamilton who will suit up for the Florida Gators as a freshman this coming season, probably is a bit away but numerous observers marvel at Alexander’s skill set and, as importantly, how well he soaks up instruction and his very positive attitude – expect Alexander to have some future with the program going forward if his progress continues.
                              We are about 48 hours away from the team breaking camp in Toronto to travel to Italy with their first game against Croatia next week. Many are anxious to discover which group of 12 will make the journey to Europe – we expect and hope that post-Europe, more players – hopefully Tristan Thompson – will also join in time for 5th July game vs. Turkey. Stay tuned.

                              • Anthony Bennett and Khem Birch officially showed up to camp! And Bennett apparently looks slimmer than he ever has.
