Great article, Rautins seems to be content with his less experienced team. Why is the Senior Team not giving some of the amazing younger players like Tristan Thompson, Myck Kabongo, Cory Joseph, Junior Cadougan a shot to make the team? Three out of four of those guys were just invited to play ball with the best of the best at the legendary Rucker Park streetball tourney. If Thompson , Jospeh and Kabongo can hang with some of the best American players, surely they can make an impression on Rautins and his staff. Its time the young guys are given a chance to represent Canada on the big stage and if Rautins is content with guys like Jesse Young, Doorkekamp, and Bell, Team Canada will never improve.
