July 18th-21st Iap sports is holding Canada's first 5 star basketball International recruitment camp/tournament..... there will be 36 teams, each team will have 10 players and each team will have a coach from a university or college from both the US and or Canada.

The event is held to get everybody noticed and everybody seen... We have organized it so it gives you a college feel. That means there will be chances you wont know anybody on your team an thats exactly how its gonna be when you sign d1, d2 or go to another juco.

All your games will be taped by us an you have the option of asking us to make a highlight tape to put on your profile, which will be located on our site. (www.iapsports.com) All games will be put on our IAP sports TV web-site so you can build your own fan base an grab the attention you deserve.

You'll already be getting noticed from the coaches that are coaching you or coaching against you, or even the coaches that are just gonna be there to watch you play.

There will be 2 Canadian based live television programs there in Global TV(The Score), and Rogers which will be there for sure.

In regards to the material things, you will be getting 2 uniforms or possible reverse able uniforms. You will be given a number that will label you an direct coaches to the player they want to see.

Your guaranteed 6 games in your division and than playoffs. Its a 32 team playoff which means 16 games on each playoff bracket. Its one game knock-out so make sure you come hard.

This will all be held at the Hoop Dome, the all-star game, three point and dunk contest will be at York and or Ryerson University..... and the championship game will be at the ACC. ( Yes the home of the raptors )

To register is $150

This event is invitation based cause we need to promise the coaches quality athletes so that they come out here on a year in year out basis but anyone can register. People with invitations are just guaranteed to participate.


* To people who do not live in Canada speak with me and we'll arange transportation cost and hotel fee's an the best possible rate. We will also be sponsoring athletes as well to make life easier on athletes. As of right now your only focus will have to be your transportation out here (i.e. plane ticket or greyhound ticket, and your registration fee. Food, transportation and hotels we have covered.)

** I will also like to announce that this event will be turned into a television series with 4 selected atheletes. This means that if you are chosen you will have a camera on you at all time watching you every move an action to broadcast your experience. Deadline to register is May 21st and registers is filling up Extremely so contact me ASAP

I know it can sound like bitterness, but it is not. Sometimes you are lucky (e.g. last shot missed by Argentina in the World Champ semis), sometimes you don't. That was just the most recent example and a really good one, I think. As you said, it happens a lot, in almost every sport, but I still don't like it.

Edit: how the h*** shammond williams ended up being Georgian?

I think he played with zacha pachulia in the nba and he convinced him to play for them,that and a large sum of money of course.Any shammond williams is one the clearest examples of poor american point guards in europe,his decision making is awful.he was rubbish for barca and he hasnt been that much better at pamesa.By the way I am bitter about Holden's last seconds heroics,I still wish he had missed,that or that Navarro would have scored atleast 2 points in the whole match.

Absolutely right, I really don't like this naturalization stuff, but there was an American playing for the Czechs also, just like in Russia and the guys mentioned above. Also, UK with Deng and Gordon. After reading this article, I am kind of convinced that Kaman might join Germany. I guess Jason Kapono could join Italy and God knows who else in USA is of what heritage. It wouldn't be Euro's anymore, with all these naturalizations and giving passports away. A player could say "Oh yeah, my great great grandfather was half French, means I can go and play for them" It's different if it's a child of immigrants though. That I understand.

Deng did play most of his basketball in Brixton as he immigrated to the U.K from Sudan when he was 14, however ask him what he considers himself and he will undoubtably say Sudanese. Gordon is a joke.his mum I think is English and he was born in London,but left when he was months old,he knows nothing about the U.K and if coach K would have asked him to play for U.S he wouldn't be playing for Great Britain.

Probably yes, that's why he made no attempt to come back. He should heal just in time for Beijing

We'll see what happens, I am hoping for Brazil, Slovenia and Germany, but what I think will happen is Greece, Puerto Rico, and Croatia, or maybe Slovenia instead of P Rico.
