The Canadian national team isn't trying to make the NBA. They're trying to make the Olympics, which are filled with guys that can't make the NBA.

The ratio of NBA players to non-NBA players in the Olympics greatly favors the non-NBA players.

Almost each team has an NBA player that don't have to be superstars but that can prove that they can carry the team. When USA played Brazil,they faced Varejao and Barbosa who aren't even the 3rd option on their respective teams but they proved that they can play but who on this team can prove that they can carry a scoring load?

If the USA win the world championship, Canada would have a much better chance of qualifying at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The automatic entries are host China and the 2006 World Champions. There will be five zone qualifying tournaments next summer, including an American zone which includes Canada. The winner and runner-up of the America's zone, qualify for Beijing. If the USA loses, it has to play in the America's zone, so Canada's chances would be slim. Then Canada would have to face either Argentina, Brazil or Puerto Rico for the runner-up spot. The qualifier will be held in Venezuela, and it would be tough playing in their backyard. After the zone tournaments are completed, nine teams would be in. Leaving 3 spots open for grabs. A couple months before the Olympics, a last chance tournament will be played. The top three teams from that move on to the Olympics. It will be tough cause some European and Asian teams will be in that tournament.

I'm cheering for Argentina. Manu and Oberto seem to be holding it down.

Garbajosa has been playing very well for Spain, good to hear the Oberto is doing well on his national team.
