Wasn't really sure where to put this thread, but it can get moved if need be.
I remember a few years ago when they decided to start the Grassroots Basketball Program, there was quite a big fuss over the amount of money being invested into the program and would it reeally pay any dividends.
Well with guys like Tristan Thompson, Cory Joseph, Kelly Olynyk, Junior Cadougan, Myck Kabongo (even Andy Rautins) etc. all going South and proving that they very much are equal in talent with guys from the states, I think it has to be realized that the more money and the more attention we give to these guys (government etc), the better chance Canada has at really becoming a power house in Basketball. I don't see why we can't.
www.nbadraft.net has Thompson going 13th at this point. I want him on the Raps for 2011/12.
For some reason, I don't think www.draftexpress.com even knows about him. hahah
