I guess Canada couldn't even qualify to Olympics with such roster.
No disrespect, I'm sure there are plenty Canadians that are good and I don't know (like the one in Orlando, but he's not good so...), Wiggins said that because he's country proud, likes to bring hope, but be realistic - he's unrealistic
Most promising guy since Lebron, do you even watch college basketball? Lots of Nba talent. And Tristan Thompson is promising, so is Nicholson and kabongo. I'm not saying we'll be the US, but we'll definitely compete in the next years
