      Well it's safe to say this one is over.

      Canada is bleeding gold tonight

      I wonder if winning effects FIBA rankings ... Or is at only the Sr level.

          There are different rankings for boys. We'll climb to 2nd place in the World(prev: 3rd). 1st: USA, 3rd: Lithuania

          Combined rankings are pointless imo

            I once made a mistake of buying the Wiggins hype. Never again. Canadians have this tendency to overhype their own athletes like no one else. I still remember the Wiggins hype. Remember when he made the cover of SI standing besidea Wilt Chamberlain?

            I mean, Wiggins is a good player. But he's nothing special.

            Milos Raonic is another one. He's an AWFUL tennis player. An awful tennis player. Never won a Grand Slam in his career and i doubt he wins one. But the Canadian media talks about him like he's Roger Federer. Just ridiculous.
            I'm totally buying the RJ Barrett hype. There's a huge difference between being talented and being a winner. Barrett just showed me something. You can't teach alpha and it looks like he's got that.

              • The great Milos Raonic(#7 in the world so he must be good) got completely destroyed by 35 year old Roger Federer.

                  There's a massive drop off in men's tennis from the top 1-3 guys and everybody else, it's not just Raonic.

                  Also, Federer is arguably the greatest tennis player of all time. Raonic is just top 10 in his era. What do you want?

                  I don't think Raonic gets undue hype. Bouchard still gets extra attention even though she completely fell off after her concussion. A tennis story often leads with a report on her losing an early round match to a low or unranked player, then throw in a couple lines at the end about Raonic advancing. If it's about the tennis, those stories should feature Raonic with a couple throw in lines about Bouchard.

                      I think rocwell was saying qualifying has changed so it's done in season for lower ranked teams like canada. We may never get to see what this team can do

                            I'll be really curious to see what the roster for this ends up being. I'm hoping we can at least manage that second-tier talent level with guys like Ejim, the other Josephs, Bachynskis, Scrubbs etc. Will they drop in college and NBA players for the June and July games? Dominican Republic is solid (ranked ahead of us in FIBA ranking) and less reliant on NBA talent, but hopefully we can knock them off for the best possible seeding going into the second round.

                              FIBA wants to go fully FIFA lol. It pisses me off cuz no league signed off on that. But oh well. Teams like Dominican Republic should thrive in such qualifying tournaments so we have to do better(not choke) and pre qualify next time.

                              Qualifiers should be easy imo. Dominican Republic is solid but three teams(out of 4) will go to second round. Surely we can beat Bahamas and Virgin Islands.

                              Honestly, 2nd round shouldn't be a problem for us with or w/o NBA talent. Top 3 teams from the group will qualify for WC. Best fourth placed team will get a ticket, too. I'm not really worried about seeding tbh.

                                I'm so totally out of the loop these days. What the hell is a G League? and what's the difference between the D League and the G Leauge?
