    Hot take: this rona virus shit fucking sucks
    That's not a hot take. It is a level-headed and rational summation of the available facts.

    • Tyler Ennis and Kyle Wiltjer are playing together in Turkey....and playing very well. While Wiltjer will never be a huge defensive force or great rebounder, he is a solid offensive player. In 5 games this year he is shooting over 50% from the field, over 47% from 3 (16.2 ppg), adding in a respectable 7.4 rpg and 3 assists. In 21 games last year he shot over 40% from 3.

      Is this a guy that should get another crack at the NBA due to his floor spacing abilty? Do we need to take anohter shot at the Stanley Johnson's and Hollis Jefferson's or take an established Euro League guy with a specific skill set?

        • Japan reportedly concludes Tokyo Olympics will be cancelled

          Looks like we don't have to worry about who isn't going to play for Canada this summer ..

          Also Canada is fined 200,000 for not sending players to a November tournament

            Cash grab by FIBA. Not surprised. FIBA, FIFA and the IOC are greedy slime balls.

            Using the pandemic as an excuse to pocket some cash is a new low, but totally within character.

              • This has been shared by a few on the Raptors beat. It's better defence than blowing in his ear. Would look good on the national team.

                    OG is way too chill to pull that move.
                    That’s straight up Sean Avery territory.
                    Loving it.

                          Be good to get a steady look at him. At least he plays for the national coach if he is on the Raptors.

                            I know we’ve got Tristan & Kelly to consider as well but this gives Nurse two of the possible rotation big men for Team Canada to work with, right here with these Raps...

                            I’m down with that.

                            • Nice to see #5353next to the last post I looked at. Members are supporting the National team and showing a healthy interest in the Canadian game. Makes me feel good.
