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
There are 2-3 Canadians coming into the NBA every year now - and it's accelerating.

Add an NBA roster around Wiggins. Stir in Steve Nash as GM. Lithuania will have a tough time with them.
