Canadian 2020 Medal Team
Thompson/ Bennett/ Lyles
Pangos/ Kabongo/ Ennis
i'm sayin we go gold in like 2014 or 2015. Wiggins, Thompson and Kabongo will be leading the charge with Nicholson off the bench tearin it up.
I predict Anthony Davis will improve on defense.
I predict that we will having tanking, the Olympic basketball version on Monday when Spain meets Brazil with both teams desperate not to finish second in the qualifying round. The third place team would avoid the USA until the gold medal game while the second will have to pay them in the semi final.
It will be a huge step in the right direction if the Canadian men qualify for RIO (it is never easy). The national team has struggled to get the best players on board in the past and the Canadian public doesn't care much about a national basketball program like in Europe and parts of Latin America. There needs to be a will in order for there to be a way.
Spain disappointed me, lost to Brazil 82:88 (26:17, 18:21, 22:19 16:31) playing with bench players while Brazil was in lead during 4th q... Intentional fouls and no effort to tie the game... Everything just to miss match with US on semi finals... Well, I won't support them any longer.
Calling it now, Russia beats USA for gold.
Edit: in basketball obviously
Anyone watching the US-Spain game? Did anyone else notice that Calderon is actually playing some solid defense on Kobe and Paul?
