    Nice dig at Leo, about sending him into retirement as a coach, in the Forbes interview. Maybe Leo will respond at some point.

    I kind of feel bad for Leo, since Canada field'ed a crap team considering, the talent that was missing. But at least we should get a better coach and aim for 2016 olympics :/

    With the threat of turning this in to yet another Bargnani discussion, I must say he sounds very relaxed and comfortable. He is no longer the stiff 2x4 looking to say the right thing. Look back at some of his interviews from 2006/2007/2008 to really see what I mean.

    I have to agree. As much as I was done with him the last few seasons(actually the day we drafted him), I'm almost willing to go into this one trying to forget all the angst he's caused. Words and actions are two totally different things though, especially dealing with Andrea. Trade him at the deadline if he hasn't shown anything on D.

    I have no comment on Leo's coaching as I did not see much of the FIBA Americas tournament, but Canada had 3 NBA players on its roster plus some very solid Euro league players such as English, Shepherd, Kendall and Anderson. There was some talent missing without Nash and Thompson whose insurance cost was prohibitive.

    Teams that Canada lost to, close games all, Venezuela, Panama, and Brazil had one NBA player each on their rosters this tournament. Kudos to the Canadian players who gave up part of their summer and risked injury to participate.
