    As a Canadian Basketball fan .. I seem to be cheering for Knicks Griz and Celtics to lose . Just want to see Tristian Barret and Brooks to play for Canada ..
    Not that I need any further reasons to cheer for NY & Boston to lose, but excellent point.

    This is the most talented roster Team Canada has ever assembled and that's without SGA, Murray, and Boucher. I'm hyped for the qualifying tourney!

    Could we see Nickeil Alexander-Walker picking up some PG duty ?
    Realized I left him off of offensive creators after I posted. I think he will have a big impact on the roster.

    I’m thinking definitely yes.

    CoJo is a very good FIBA pg. He is a plus defender and with the the shorter 2 point line across the arc he a solid threat as a shooter. Wiggins, RJ, Brooks, NAW and Olynyk can all create their own shots enough if needed in a pinch. CoJo will look after the ball and get the offense started, and that's all we need at the qualifiers.

    Wow with Murray I thought we would be in good hands with SGA but no SGA .. Are we pinning our hopes on Cory Joseph and Andrew Nembhard . It seems Nik Stauskas has retired from the national team or wants to get ready for next Gleague Season ..

    Sadly we have to root against teams like Grizzlies and Knicks so we can have Dillion Brooks and Barrett at camp

    Although skeptical , what makes me believe him is the fact he did once have a serious leg injury and he is tall and you have to take care of your legs

    If Boucher is sitting out to heal his injuries.. then why did he play at the end of the season when we were tanking the season anyway? Something doesn't add up there. I think it's a contract thing.
    I think we have enough Big Men ... Kelly Olynyk plays his best ball in FIBA and Tristan Thompson and Powel are also big bodies who also know FIBA basketball well .

    The last game he played was the Clippers May 11th, he sat out the last 3 games. If he felt fine he would have played those games, he must still be hurting or aggravated it in the Clippers game. He has zero worry about his contract, it's incredible value for us and one of our best trade assets.
