    That is why I I am thinking he is not in the mix for us. Add him to Karl Anthony Towns and some recent solid NCAA players and the DR is starting to build a core.

    Hope we can get him involved with the Canadian team, I fear he may go and play for the DR.
    Nothing in his Bio screams out that he would want to play for Canada . He isn't a lock to for the Canadian national team but if he did choose DP he might be guaranteed a spot . I think gone are the days we have to search for any player and convince them to join the Canadian team instead of another country .


    Duarte was born and raised in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.[2][3] He moved with his family to New York to play his final two years of high school basketball at Redemption Christian Academy in Troy.[4] He participated in the 2017 Jordan Brand Classic Regional Game.[5] Ranked the fifth-best player in New York by 247Sports, Duarte originally committed to play college basketball for Western Kentucky but instead started his career at Northwest Florida State Colleg

    Steve Nash made the top 75 players of all time list. No brainer decision, but congrats!

    Well we now know who is coaching Canada when Nick won't be able too ... Nate Bjorkgren will be coaching Canada

    Nate Bjorkgren, Nathaniel Mitchell to coach Senior Men’s National Team in upcoming FIBA competitions (basketball.ca)
    Nate is basically nicks personal assistant at this point. They even had to give him a co coach because he went to indy and let the power get to his head

    Pangos finally saw some pre-season floor time . I was wondering why he hadn't played previously .. Not a bad night . 8 points in 14 mins .. Although 4 for 10 and -4

    JOSHUAPRIMO had a good first outing last night

    Had 7-8 shooting night with 17 points .
    He's got a lot of skill for an 18-year old rookie. Looks smooth as a vet.

    Great news. We won't see him in TO till after Christmas I recall. Might have that wrong though.

    Not sure which articles you’re reading but Wiggins & Kyrie completely shut down any questions about their vaccine status on media day. Nobody is using it as a platform to push an anti-vaxx agenda. If anything the media is making them, especially Kyrie, look like idiots or troublemakers for not getting vaxxed. That’s kind of what you want, right?
    NBA has announced that players won't be paid for games missed due to local vaccine mandates .. So we will see how passionate these players are when it hits their pocket books .

    Report the news by all means, but don't turn it into a platform for Wiggins and Irving to encourage people to not get the vaccine based on their "scientific" research.

    Just say that some very highly paid players haven't taken the vaccine yet and won't be able to play games because of it. They don't even need to name the players involved since it's a medical issue.

    If we're going to be taking quotes or giving them press conferences let's give the 90%+ NBA players who did get the vaccine the same opportunity. Unfortunately the poor communities here actually listen to guys like Iriving and Wiggins and they're the ones disproportionately dying of covid now because they aren't vaxxed yet. If Wiggins gets Covid he'll get the full Joe Rogan treatment with monoclonal antibodies and everything but the kitchen sink. If Joe NBA fan who makes $25K per year gets covid he's not getting any of that, he's getting waitlisted at the hospital because we don't have enough ventilators or ICU beds.

    So it's non-proportional coverage to report that a non-trivial contingent of NBA superstars & role players could miss ALL games in at least the states of New York and California? That would be front-page sports news, regardless of the reason; but in this instance, it happens to be connected to the most relevant news topic of the last 2 years.

    And nobody was saying a whole lot about the NBA vax situation until Wiggins, Kyrie and the Rolling Stone article came out. I'm not seeing the dis-proportionate coverage. The Kyrie/Wiggins news is attention grabbing, because of it's impact on the games, not because the media outlets are only reporting NBA anti-vaxxers. From somebody who follows NBA newsfeeds everyday, that's simply a false representation of what's being covered. NBA news has been pretty quiet this off-season, except for the Ben Simmons saga (which I love).
