    Is it true that netherlands still are especially kind to canadians because of that thing with the princess and ww2?
    It's the only reason we haven't invaded Canada yet.

        So nobody is going to push for us to draft Kris Joseph at 37 and Robert Sacre at 56?

                  "This week, when national team staff attempted to quantify Andrew Wiggins’s vertical leap, Wiggins jumped higher than the measuring apparatus could measure. Officials had to elevate the device to properly assess the bounds of Wiggins’ explosiveness. The gist: His 44-inch vertical leap and 6-foot-11 wingspan mean he can touch 12-foot-6, six inches below the top of an NBA backboard.

                  Pure athleticism isn’t the only reason for the fuss. His jump shot is a smooth re-enactment of the textbook freeze-frame. His knack for timing rebounds and blocked shots speaks to his on-court maturity.

                  “He’s already NBA size for his position. He already has NBA athleticism,” said Rowan Barrett, Canada Basketball’s executive vice president. “When you put those two things together and you add the refining of the skills . . . He’s 17 this year. Imagine what he’s going to be when he’s 20. Absolutely scary. I don’t see him as a kid who’s going to get caught up in the hoopla. If he stays on the same track he’s on, the sky’s the limit for him.”

                      Sullinger has been shopping himself around as the next Kevin Love, recalling that Love drew a lot of skepticism coming out of UCLA that he wasn't big enough, not athletic enough for the NBA.

                        Why not?
                        he is solid and could very well be another kevin love.
