  • There is basketball talent here in Canada but it has never materialized into success in the FIBA realm of things. The FIBA ranking is 26th in the world. Hard to get my head around that level of lack of success.

    Meanwhile, Wiggins is busy working on his 720 dunk.....

      Suns add Canada Basketball coach Jay Triano as associate head coach

      Do you think Suns lure Nash back Suns organization ?
      He's already employed by the World Champions, so probably not any time soon.

        As far as I am concerned Wiggins is a traitor to his country of birth. He needs to get booed to wake him up. Media needs to put more pressure on him.

          Oh, FFS. It's sports. He's not dodging the draft.

            That's bit too far imo.

            • As far as I'm concerned wiggins left his atheletic brethren high and dry when they went into battle, he was chilling in vegas.

              How's that.

                Honestly.. I'm over it. You see, it's going to take more than one guy, experience and time to build a culture like France or Lithuania's. And Wiggins is definitely not that guy who's going to take this shit seriously, unfortunately.

                  His character indicates that IF there was a draft he would dodge it. Canadians could learn a thing or two from Americans re patriotism. He has a skill set which very few of his fellow citizens have and should use that skill set for the betterment of his country.

                    In agreement. He should be called out .

                        This in the summer where basically the entire A-team for the US is skipping the Olympics?

                          There are enough B listers to win gold. We can't even QUALIFY without our A listers. There's no excuse period. Don't forget we have roughly 1/10th population of US. Missing Olympics due to injury is different than just not showing up. Imagine the furor if for Winter Olympics Sidney Crosby decided just not to play....

                            Lithuania has roughly 1/10th of the population of Canada.

                            On another note, Venezuela is pulling a real stinker against Serbia tonight. Down 21 at the half. Saric and Hezonja are not on the Serbian roster. Jokic is the only NBAer.

                              I guess? What does whether the B-listers are good enough have to do with anything? The other played still bailed. The only difference is the depth the Americans have, they'll still be good regardless.

                              Remember this isn't players skipping the Olympics. This is players skipping a qualifying tourney after attending one last summer (and failing to qualify then against lesser competition).

                                I just think it's too easy to let the non-injured Canadian NBA players off the hook...I love the fact that Tristan Thompson showed up to player after the NBA finals.
