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.
OK, I'll ask lang to create a sub-forum in the Raptors section and we'll see how it goes. If after a while it still becomes a barren wasteland then we'll scrap the idea. But I'll let you to prove us wrong then.
