Default Cory Joseph suits up for Team Canada !

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...?sct=nba_t2_a4

After the brief glimpse of the possible with Nash...

And the constant desire and bemoaning to see Dalembert / McGloire and other Canadian NBA player consistently bow out and not play for us for "sometimes" pretty bogus reasons ....

Hopefully a promising future!

Canadian basketball is definitely on the rise, but it's going to be another 4-5 years before we actually matter.

Great for Cory though, and great for Canadian basketball.

Wasn't sure if this warranted its own thread, but its related to Canada basketball:

Quote:
Andrew Wiggins has been bumped from No. 3 to No. 1 in ESPN's rankings for the Class of 2014.

"They honestly hadn't seen him play that much, but with him playing with the CIA Bounce program, they had a chance to see him with other elite kids who were older and then with his own age," Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford said. "There is no comparison. It's no disrespect to the kids behind him in the rankings, but it's not close."

Wiggins averaged 21 points per contest in three games as Canada finished as runner-up in the Nike Global Challenge. The Canadian team beat the U.S. East team 104-83 before falling to U.S. Midwest 99-94.

"He had a really good tournament and went head-to-head with Jabari Parker (U.S. East), who is No. 1 in the Class of 2013," Fulford said. "Wiggins had 21 points, Parker finished with seven."

Really excited about this kids future.



16 years old and he's 6'7 190 already.

We should have a thread for Canadian hoops (international, high school, etc.).
Wiggins is gonna be a beast. He's already very skilled. He was the MVP at the Nike Global Challenge, taking on guys 2 years older than him.

If you wanna set that up I'd be glad to sticky it. We need more things to talk about during the rest of the off-season/lockout.
