I would have to disagree with you, I think there are enough people interested in our National Team and with basketball becoming more and more popular in Canada I think there is an appetite for discussion revolving around our current teams, etc.. So build it and they will come........Quite frankly the current attitude towards our National Program and Canada Basketball stinks and is very immature on some peoples parts to belittle the program. Canada Basketball is working very hard in partnership with the Raptors in order to strengthen the overall game in Canada. So to exclude discussion and ideas about current Canadian players, coaches ,etc..is an insult to the very country that created this wonderful game. The great Canadian himself, Mr James Naismith im sure would encourage a discussion board on the game he created.
