Bleh. We've had a couple of Canada-related breaks the past five years or so (Jesus blocking John Salmons from coming here, no luck signing Rashard Lewis (the first time, when the contract was reasonable), the Calderon for Tyson Chandler trade being turned down (probably due to Jordan's weak-knees on the deal, but when have you ever heard of an accepted trade falling through), etc. But, we've had our fair share of "big" signings - Marion, Hedo, Jermaine O'Neal, etc. Many of our moves just haven't worked out.
