  • Powell has already committed.

    https://www.sportsnet.ca/basketball/nba/powell-joins-brooks-wanting-represent-canada-olympic-qualifier/

    "I’m excited to finally do what I’ve been thinking about for a long while. Having games in your home country is huge," said Powell, who is from Toronto. "At the end, we all want to compete in the Olympics. It’s an opportunity to compete at the highest level and to help your country compete and have success."

    • Man, I hope this just starts a trend.

      Our young guys are good! If we can get them playing together now, the team will be great for years to come.

      We got Jamal, CoJo is pretty much a shoe in. Olynyk is probably in.

      If we could get Shai, Wiggings, Barret, Brooks, Boucher, etc. it would be amazing. Put Nurse in at coach and who knows what happens.

      It hurts my soul as a pure and old Canadian Basketball fan, that this is the story line. We would be a medal contender if everyone showed up, but for some reason that the hardest part. Getting Canadian players to play for Canada.

      Man on man I hope Jamal just started a trend.

        Okay Jamal, now that you've done this work on convincing everyone else to do the same lol
        Canada basketball players got roasted so hard this summer the players could hear it from their mansions in the states.

          I don't want Wiggins. I do want Tristan Thompson. Wiggins takes minutes from better player like Murray, SGA, and Barrett

          • Murray/SGA/Barrett/Olynyk/Thompson starting lineup with Joseph, Brooks, Boucher and Powell as other options? That's a solid base. Wiggins is still the biggest question mark, if he doesn't come out this summer then he never will again.

              Fuck wiggins. It's like that Marilyn Monroe quote. If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best.

                That's not just a solid base, that's literally the entire roster we need, a medal contender

                  Like I said, I'm not even sure he makes us better by being on the floor at crunch time. If he wants to accept a bench scorer role than yeah, but I think he would come in like Mr. Captain Canada or something

                  • Tristan needs to play... if we get Greece in our pool we need guys that can defend Giannis in the paint.

                      I'm with the majority on Wiggins, but he's actually having a really good season so far.

                        It seems this Wolves coach has gotten something out of Wiggins that no previous coach has gotten .. He is playing a great season on both sides of the ball.

                          You are right .. We need some bigs that play big .. The FIBA game is so different to the NBA especially at the center position.
                          The Greek was somewhat neutralized and could wait to play NBA basketball again

                          • Hearing these players commit to playing next summer is music to my ears. Of course, having the tournament in Canada should help tremendously. Something about playing in front of friends and family.

                              I have known and made a promise to myself that representing my country is something I will continue to do and as my bro @BeMore27 publicly announced his commitment, I too will be there to do my best to help @CanBball get to Tokyo!
