    What was the purpose of the original list ? No Kelly Olynyk , Tristan Thompson , Khem Birch , Dillon Brooks , Oshae Brissett, ..

    Dwight Powell is an example of the ‘heart and soul’ Canadian men will bring to Olympic qualifying tournament | The Star

    Although saying that .. We have a Canadian team with Andrew Wiggins , RJ Barrett , Lu Dort , Dwight Powell , Cory Joseph , Trey
    Lyles, Mychal Mulder and Nickeil Walker-Alexander . With 8 NBA players and that should be enough talent to get us at least to the Olympics .

    I read a tweet that guys like Dort , Wiggins and CoJo all aren't there yet .. Maybe the 1st few days aren't mandatory for NBA players . I guess if they were in the playoffs currently they would wait and so that is why it isn't mandatory but it seems Cory Joseph isn't even in this continent presently .

    I have been thinking the same thing . Although if Giannis has a early exit his mood for basketball may not be so hype to fly to Vancouver .
    Or maybe he will be so pissed off, he is just going to take his frustrations on team Canada.

    The most important date to remember is 29 June 2021 which is the first game of the tournament for Canada which happens to be against Greece.

    If the Bucks are eliminated by the Nets, Giannis is going to be there and the road to the Olympics becomes a whole lot harder.

    No Olynyk , Thompson , Birch or Boucher .. WTF . Why have them on that original list when you have no commitment . It seems like always it is always next tournament ..

    Got to love Powel .. After having a major injury he is at camp and is excited about being there .
    It's always the younger people! TT used to show up allllllll the time back in the day. Also Olynk!

    Birch, Boucher and Olynyk are easily explainable... they have no guaranteed contract for next year. What's TT's excuse? Hitting up another Kardashian?

    Where's Tristan Thompson at..... when you actually NeedTristanThompson
    Not sure why, come on TT. Maybe if we get #TT2022 he'll recommit to the Canadian team out of respect for Nick Nurse????

    But yeah TT is probably celebrating his reopening by getting out there! Why limit it to just the Kardashians when you can have all of LA or whatever city he's vacationing in????

    Certainly does. The annual tradition. Canada sees a big list, then they slowly drop like flies up until the day of the tournament and you're back with Cory Joseph and the Scrubb brothers
    Perfectly said ... Nickeil Alexander-Walker is there though .

    Did he shit the bed ? My memory was Jay sat him on the bench for most of the game ( and that could be one of the reasons why he never suited up again )

    Did Wiggins shit the bed or did Jay with one of the most talented Canadian teams ever shit the bed ?
    Eh, it was a little of column A, little of column B. No one came out looking good.

    For real, Triano got punked by that crazy Venezuelan coach, IIRC, and then blamed the young Canadian players as a group. Pretty sure Wiggins has been holding a grudge since then.

    2015 is when Wiggins shit the bed in the deciding game against Venezuela that kept us out of the Olympics. When it mattered most he was not good.

    I'll go back to it, he was 20 years old, what did you expect?
    Back then I thought Wiggins was going to be a perennial All Star so I had outsized expectations. Anyone from the USA team at age 20 would have performed a lot better. I think both Murray and Barrett performed better than Wiggins for team Canada at younger ages. Does Wiggins start over Brooks at SF? I'm not sure Wiggins is even a starter for team Canada now.
