Why does Canada even send a team to this tournament? We are getting outplayed, out hustled, out smarted, out coached, need I say more... If this team does not want to compete and Leo can admit he is getting out coached, do the honest thing Leo and give the coacinhg position to someone who knows the game and can produce results out of our guys. I am embarrassed to be a Canadian Basketball Fan and am sick of seeing poor results from our National Team. When will our government step and support basketball? It is our game that we can claim to call Canadian and no one seems willing to support this team. Other than a complete over haul and getting rid of leo I dont know what else to suggest. If Leo cant win these next few games, then Mr Parrish needs to do the smart thing and replace him with a competent coach. The ironic thing about Leo is he talks about coaching and smart basketball plays when announcing the Raptors games and when it comes to coaching his own team he is clearly not able to get the message across to his own guys. The team just resigned to the fact that they were going to lose today and gave up. This is unacceptable and losing should not be tolerated by the brass at Canada Basketball. I really want this team to experience success but until Canada Basketball can clearly identify its weaknesses and identify proper coaching talent the Canadian Mens team is going no where. Very sad

Didnt think we would lose by 20 points, canada was playing scared and were not smart with the basketball today, shots were forced, defense was poor and argentina was toying with us at the end. Im sure we can produce better results than what we showed today. Canada Basketball should not accept losing anymore and play with alot more pride

No offense but I think they did fairly well by losing only by 20. Argentina its on a different level even without their top stars. They still have Prigioni, Scola and others.

I would be happy for Canada if this happend but I dont have much faith on it. I see teams like Great Britain, France, Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic who have great individual talent from North American Universities but they suck badly as teams. They dont know how to play international team ball.

True, but in the greater basketball spectrum individual success is bigger than playing for your country and if any Canadian bball player is an All Star in the NBA it will be good for Canadian basketball in general

23 turnovers. Ineffecient substitutions. Leo Rautins is starting to coach like Sam Mitchell. It was hard to watch, and the sloppiest game I think I have ever seen.

That team has tons of potential, just lots of problems. And whats with Canada being all the sudden a dirty scrappy team. Rautins should be fired, start the programs from scratch. No way we make top 4 unless we get a miracle.

agreed...i know the tourny isnt over, but IMO if this team fails to qualify they need to scrap the current plan and start fresh...CAN needs to "promote" some of the next gen talent.

...What? Magloire and Nash probably will never come back to play team canada basketball. Scola is like an european star in the basketball world. But I do agree Rautins is bad.

rautins does an ok job in game coaching and stuff. but, outside he's terrible and he's a total dickface.


magloire and nash could possibly come back for a year and we could really use them along with dalambert.

It could have been worse. What if Argentina had Ginobili.

Magloire is ashamed to be Canadian and Nash is almost 50.
