Default Canada qualifies for the Worlds in 2010

Lucky... well, yes, but the guys on the team worked hard and deserve this honour. Of course, as much as I dislike Leo, that's a huge validation for him as a coach as well.

What's really interesting is the fact that he mentioned the possibility of Bonner, Magloire and even possibly Nash joining the team for the tournament next year. That'd be a bit unfair to the people who helped them qualify, but I'd rather see a more competitive national team.

hopefully bonner will be able to get his status ready for the world championships
personally, i would rather not have magloire on the team, before i would want him, but now he is so washed up he's pretty much useless
we keep hoping for nash but he's seriously like 100% never playing non-nba games again

Magloire and Dalembert can piss off.

But having Bonner and Nash on the team would be HUGE... and I think that they're nice enough people that the rest of the team wouldn't mind.

Could we get Grant Hill to play? I mean, he isn't good enough for team USA anymore, and his wife is Canadian. Imagine a lineup of.

Nash
Rautins
Hill
Young
Bonner

if i remember correctly, you can only play for 1 country, so once you play for 1 country you can never change to another
like 1 time tim duncan had to choose between USA and US virgin islands, and he went with USA so he couldn't play for the virgin islands
i'm pretty sure grant hill and rasho have played for their countries so they are probably bound to playing for those countries

We need those young players from the Nike Challenge.

Mangisto Arop for one, so that they can get some international experience.

Damn, Canada might be a force in 2012 if we keep finding talent here.

2010 FIBA World Championship will be played in Istanbul, Türkiye. I hope Nash plays for Canada and I'll get a chance to watch him there.
