    No Olynyk , Thompson , Birch or Boucher .. WTF . Why have them on that original list when you have no commitment . It seems like always it is always next tournament ..

    Got to love Powel .. After having a major injury he is at camp and is excited about being there .
    It's always the younger people! TT used to show up allllllll the time back in the day. Also Olynk!

    Birch, Boucher and Olynyk are easily explainable... they have no guaranteed contract for next year. What's TT's excuse? Hitting up another Kardashian?

    Where's Tristan Thompson at..... when you actually NeedTristanThompson
    Not sure why, come on TT. Maybe if we get #TT2022 he'll recommit to the Canadian team out of respect for Nick Nurse????

    But yeah TT is probably celebrating his reopening by getting out there! Why limit it to just the Kardashians when you can have all of LA or whatever city he's vacationing in????

    #TT2022
    #FORHISOWNGOOD!!!!!

    Certainly does. The annual tradition. Canada sees a big list, then they slowly drop like flies up until the day of the tournament and you're back with Cory Joseph and the Scrubb brothers
    Perfectly said ... Nickeil Alexander-Walker is there though .

    Did he shit the bed ? My memory was Jay sat him on the bench for most of the game ( and that could be one of the reasons why he never suited up again )

    Did Wiggins shit the bed or did Jay with one of the most talented Canadian teams ever shit the bed ?
    Eh, it was a little of column A, little of column B. No one came out looking good.

    For real, Triano got punked by that crazy Venezuelan coach, IIRC, and then blamed the young Canadian players as a group. Pretty sure Wiggins has been holding a grudge since then.

    2015 is when Wiggins shit the bed in the deciding game against Venezuela that kept us out of the Olympics. When it mattered most he was not good.

    I'll go back to it, he was 20 years old, what did you expect?
    Back then I thought Wiggins was going to be a perennial All Star so I had outsized expectations. Anyone from the USA team at age 20 would have performed a lot better. I think both Murray and Barrett performed better than Wiggins for team Canada at younger ages. Does Wiggins start over Brooks at SF? I'm not sure Wiggins is even a starter for team Canada now.

    2015? lol. Wiggins was just a kid. That whole squad was pretty young. Not to mention Jay Triano was our coach. Just a slight upgrade there with Nurse.

    Last time he played at the 2015 FIBA Americas Olympic qualifiers he was the teams leading scorer and was named to the all tournament team....as a 20 year old!

    He's not the GOAT, but he is one of our top 5 guys and is a huge part of the team going forward.

    Wiggins played for Canada already and wasn't very good so I doubt he comes in thinking he's Lebron of Canada. Not to mention his NBA career has been objectively worse than many players on this invite list, plus the few guys missing out due to injuries.

    I wonder what Wiggins frame of mind coming to camp is ? Does he come thinking he is the Lebron James of Canada basketball ? Other then Murray
    I think anyone coming to Canada basketball should come knowing they are one of many great players playing in for Canada .
