Canada with poor passing, ballhandling and decision-making in this game.

It doesn't help that PR is shooting lights out

Why is Rautins still coaching???? Canada Basketball needs to bring in a coach with actual coaching experience. The ball movement is not crisp or fast enough, they are not giving the ball up to the better shooters on the team. Why is Joel Anthiny taking 10 foot shots his game is around the rim. Carl English is not a point gaurd and is dribbling the ball way too much. Andy Rautins is a good shooter, but thats it. Jermaine Anderson is a good point guard but clearly in this game is getting out played. Levon Kendall should not be taking three's. Canada seems to play really stupid basketball when playing the better teams and, does not step up when playing the better teams. Something needs to be changed with Canada Basketball and the team needs to start playing like a better team because the players on this team are not talented enough to play one on one basketball. The only player on Team Canada who is able to do that is famutimi and even he is struggling in this game due to poor decisions and lack of team basketball.

Tough loss. Puerto Rico has ballin tonight. Once it started getting out of hand I started cheering for Puerto Rico.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, I find it extremely amusing that Leo's team always does the same things out on the court that he critisizes other coaches for allowing their teams to do during Raptors broadcasts.

Why is it funny?

I find it amusing that people still don't understand that almost every coach or manager in high level sports is an expert, but at the end of the day, you need guys that can, and will execute.

Period.

I understand things perfectly well.

Leo is blow hard who makes it sound like coaching is easy when he's got his broadcasting hat on.

That's the funny part.

I completely understood firing Jay Triano since he struggled to win much of anything without Nash, but replacing him with Leo was a questionable move.

Leo talks a big game, and I think he honestly believes he's the man for the job, which is probably why he got it.
