I don't buy into the concept of the "golden age of basketball" has arrived with the current NMT roster. They will be challenged to qualify for the World Cup.
I am disappointed that Wiggins is ducking this event. Marcus Smart played in the U19 tournament and attended the USA NMT camp also this summer.
He's probably been advised against it and is just playing it safe by not participating.

Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
Canada's path to World Cup qualification will be made easier with a number of significant no shows among NBAers such as Al Horford (Dominican Republic), Greivis Vasquez (Venezuea), Ginobli, Delfino and Prigioni (Argentina), Marcelo Machado retired from international basketball after the Olympics in London, while Tiago Splitter, Anderson Varejao and Nene may not play for Brazil in the FIBA Americas Championship 2013.
by 2050 we'll be the best team ever

Just got back from the Canada vs Jamaica game and wow, Canada is gonna be solid next Olympics. They had no Wiggins, Olynyk, or Bennett and still won. Andrew Nicholson has really extended his range to just inside the 3 point line, Cory Joseph didn't score much but left everyone in Jamaica with broken ankles. Thompson was decent but got bullied by Samardo Samuels which is sad to say. Jay Triano's nephew Brady Heslip isn't bad either. He got player of the game and got everyone standing after hitting a bunch of 3's. Canada may not be able to beat the US but they're looking good going forward. I'd say Samardo Samuels was good and deserves another look in the NBA but he tried to fight Nicholson and was chirping his former teammate Thompson all night so fuck him.
Also I found it fucking hilarious than Jamaica's sponsor is KFC and every jersey has the KFC logo on it.
I watched the game and it was ugly. There were some bright spots, and many key players were missing from that game and will suit up Saturday in teh re-match. Look for Jermaine Andersona and Carl English to have a big impact in Saturday's game.
I didn't watch the game. The result was underwhelming but I have faith in Triano and his ability to coach in international competition. If the roster can pull it together on defense and the boards they should be in every game in Venezuela.
As a footnote, Tristan Thompson and Somardo Samuels were team mates in high school at Finlay Prep and again in the McDonald's All American game, and again with the Cavs the year before last. He plays in Italy now.
Anyways, i'm pretty sure Tristan Thompson is left handed. Why is he shooting with his right hand yesterday? the announcers didn't say anything about injuries.

Another close game with Jamaica. I did not see the game but I am wondering if I should be concerned about the national team squeaking out a win against a tiny island nation that likes cricket and soccer way more than hoops.
Jamaica is the first opponent in Venezuela.
