The National team is playing Jamaica twice this week on Thursday and Saturday at 7 pm at Mattamy Athletic Centre (the old Maple Leaf Gardens?).
You know what, you don't even have to offer yourself up. Have you donated even $50 to the cause of improved basketball for the national team? Given up even one meal at the Keg or Milestones, or Montanas, or even Swiss Chalet? If not, you haven't bought the right to talk down anybody who has given up their summer or weekend or even 12 hours working for the national squad.
We haven't been "utter crap" either. We haven't been great, good or maybe not even average. But " utter crap" is untrue.

Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
Oh my my, the patriotism is reaching fascist levels in here. If only everyone were so blindly celebratory of the Raptors we wouldn't have to hear tanking arguments every other day.
Sorry for pushing buttons guys, I guess criticizing the national team is off limits since the guys put in time and effort.....
There hasn't been any strident flag waving here on this thread, just some appreciation for those that heard the calling to be a national team member, win or lose.
I see zero reason that Nash shouldn't just suit up to help qualify this team, like it or not, even old he is our nations premier Point Guard.
I respect that...but would you feel better with Nash suiting up? Likely.
Don't get me wrong, I like Nash, one of my all time favs, but he still has yet to convince me there is any real reason he shouldn't be suiting up. Sitting out here and there i get....but not every year. when the team is close, and one great player could make a huge difference.... he should be playing, not wearing a suit.
Dude Nash ain't playing. He's like 40. His priority is not being injured. Plus he's put his time in and then some.
I for one am quite excited about some solid basketball to watch in the offseason, with the most promising Canadian basketball team yet. And the best is yet to come.
Eh follow my TWITTER!
Thanks for the newsflash.
It'd be a lot cooler if he did!!!
