  • Yeah, that's great to see for the women's team. Wish I could have watched more of their games this summer, but I'll definitely be watching them next summer! They should take a lot of confidence not only that they won but how convincingly they won.

    • Tristan Thompson, is not participating in camp, but has been there to show support ...

      I read that in the Globe and Mail ... Nice to see him there supporting and also seeing what Jay is implementing ...

      • nice to see the women do so well. I can not wait to see the men go at it too bad we have some injuries and contract issues forcing some of our players out.

              Too bad we could not suit up kyle for Canada at the qualifiers with Tyler and Jamal out


              Pretty cool to see Lowry mentioned amongst those Canadians.

              • Too bad to hear about Murray. Should make for some tough competition to avoid being one of the 3 players cut. Canada will have good depth and lineup flexibility, with backup PG being the only weakness.

                • Did people actually think Murray would be there?

                      Just keep praying that our NY/DEN pick turns into him

                      • oh no.

                        On a side note, how come we didn't naturalize Jose? He spent so many years in Canada.

                          He's been playing with the Spanish Program since he was a wee Spanish-Fly. Once you represent a country in International competition, you can't represent any other country. I don't think.

                            • National team cuts coming today? They are likely flying out to Puerto Rico tomorrow for the Tuto Marchand tournament which starts Sunday.

                                Anybody want to predict who will be the 3 players cut, now that Murray is out of the running?

                                Mine:
                                - Doornekamp
                                - English
                                - Bhullar

                                I think Scrubb will be the 12th man, since the least amount of depth is at the guard spots.

                                C: Olynyk / Sacre
                                PF: Nicholson / Powell (small ball C)
                                SF: Wiggins / Bennett (small ball PF) / Ejim
                                SG: Stauskas / Heslip / Scrubb (3rd PG as well)
                                PG: Joseph / Hanlan
