    Anyone else think Jamaal Murray is the best Canadian player in the league right now? I think he's going to be better than Wiggins, he just has "it"
    He does have that kung fu killer mind set that Americans crave. Wiggins is the better baller he's just too chill for agro-bros. IMO

    That said both are good to great NBA players and could propel Canada up the FIBA rankings.

      I thought the nba guys can't participate in qualifying for Olympics anymore? Therefore we're screwed? Someone who follows international could fill me in

        *FIBA World Cup, not Olympics. We're 1-1 right now. Our depth sucks cuz of the NBA and NCAA, but I think we'll get a spot.

            I think so. They'll be allowed to join the team.

                We'll also have a couple games in september as part of the second round. Having a few NBAers for that would be huge, as those will be against better teams.

                  LOL I have no idea what you're talking about. All I know is Wiggins has all the talent but he doesn't play as well as he should, Murray is a straight up Assassin. The Raptors gotta gun for him the second he's a UFA

                  • I know Jay Traino is a good guy but the experiment of him being a head coach has to stop . As long as Steve Nash keeps him as head coach, I feel team Canada will always underachieve . Hey as an assistant he maybe one of the best and hard working guys out there but stop with head coaching . He had at one time the most Canadian NBA players playing at one time in an event and he failed to get his team to the Olympics .

                    I am just saying that as Suns coach his team is giving up the most points per game in the NBA . They are losing by a larger margin then last year . Maybe Jay should let the players coach the game . They can't do any worse .

                        It's a shame on senior mens has to try and qualify for tournaments with a roster will like that..this will still be the case for the Olympic qualifying? Really puts us at a disadvantage because the USA Spain etc are already in and don't need to use their NBA players

                          Murray is a Kung Fu flick fan. He credits it for his assassin's mindset.

                          Wiggins seems aloof doesn't come across as the killer his talents suggest he should be.

                            Talent and killer instinct are not really related at all. Many people are lazy and talented, or super driven but untalented. It's when you have both you get a Michael Jordan or a kove

                            When you have one but not the other you get Matthew delavasova (drive), or Andrea bargnani(talent)

                              Essentially the world cup becomes the qualifier for the Olympics: 7 teams qualify directly from FIBA WC to the Olympics, and 24 other teams will go into 4 Olympic qualifying tournaments, with the winner of each of those tournaments (plus the host country) go into the Olympics. Those happen over June and July 2020, so we should have a decent roster for that tournament if we don't qualify directly.

                              So basically, Canada's best chance is to qualify for the WC using this ad-hoc roster, and then pull out all the stops and finish as one of the top two Americas teams. If they don't do that, they need to outright win a qualification tournament early in the Olympic summer.

                                They are trying to be like soccer but soccer the leagues let the stars play in these mini qualifiers and the stars want to participate . The NBA is in a all star break but you would never see one NBA player playing in this week's mini qualifier . I know Nik must be exhausted playing his 11 mins a night avg 1.3 points a game in his last 5 that he requires the NBA week off to rest .
