    The problem with that is that the two leagues do not run at the same time. The CEBL would lose some of its draw to players if they played a winter season. there is just not enough money in it to draw top talent away from other leagues. Also, the CEBL would not be able to have the Usport players participate in a winter season. The NBLC has been hanging on as a league but seems to be lacking growth in fans. It would be nice if there was a way to see the NBLC teams have a chance for a CONCACAF Champions League type competition. I think that could help all the pro leagues in North and South America that are not the NBA. Something closer to the Euro model.
    That's too bad. It would be a nationwide league if they ever considered merging and a huge win for Canada basketball.

    Coaching an international team is an excellent feather in your cap for college recruiting. Makes sense college coaches put in more effort and tend to do better.

    I'm a big fan of the 'pros talk logistics' concept but it seems like a convenient excuse here. Coach K is vastly underrated by NBA-land.

    Canadian women really gave away the Serbia game. Was up for work and watched the 4th quarter - they couldn't throw it in the ocean. That team has consistently put itself in good positions only to come up short of the big breakthrough time and again. Tough spot now.

    As for the US men, maybe Krzyzewski should get a lot more credit than he has received. 75-1....
    Further to Coach K's record... this interesting article is trying to make the argument that full-time NBA head coaches simply don't have enough time to do all the things necessary to properly prepare a national team for international competitions, as a part-time gig.

    What is indisputable, however, is that this is the fourth time in the past two decades that a serving NBA head coach has been in charge of the United States senior men’s team for a competition. international major. In the previous three, the United States placed sixth (2002 World Championship), third (2004 Olympics) and seventh (2019 World Cup). The United States record in these three events plus the current Olympics is 17-9: a winning percentage of 0.653.

    When the United States “redeemed” their senior men’s program by installing Duke Hall of Famer Mike Krzyzewski as head coach, the United States went 50-1 in six major championships, a winning percentage of. 980.

    How can we pretend it’s a coincidence?

    48 for Luka.. Unreal.
    Argentinas leading scorer was wait for it... Luis Scola
    Argentina has not put out top talent in a while it seems. Canada should be able to snag that #2 spot in FIBA Americas in 2022.

    France beats U.S .. Watching game I feel Canada could beat France if given the chance but I could never see them beating the U.S .
    France has a lot of length and that's what Canada would struggle against as well.

    The US are in a pretty soft group stage with the Czech and Iran. I mean the Czech beat us and they could beat the US.. but I'm assuming they won't. They should be able to get into the elimination round no sweat IMO.

    But yeah, not a good look for US and coach Pop again.

    $10 bet returns $800 for Japan winning a medal? Is this a terrible bet?
    Host countries typically exceed expectations, but there won't be any fans. I don't think Japan will get far IMO. But it's also only $10.
