Default Canada vs Brazil

It's half time and Canada is actually competing against powerhouse Brazil!

Possible upset?! Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Final score: Brazil 68-Canada 59

Not too impressed with Famutimi's shot selection throughout the game especially important possessions in the 4th.

Barbosa smoked Canada. 31 pts (11/16) including 3/6 from downtown. Man, Barbosa is fast! One of the most underrated players in the NBA IMO. Always been one of my favs.

Anybody else getting sick of watching canada lose? I am a proud canadian and cant stand to see my country lose especially in basketball. Its time canadians demand a winning team in basketball and show our support to all levels of gvernment and the media to ensure canada mens team knows we are all backing them so they have confidence to beat the better teams. I kinda think Leo goose is cooked if he cant win tomorrow and friday, actually i hope he goes because he is a better announcer and is better at critiquing plays from the broadcasting booth because he obviously cant translate what he is preaching on Raptors broadcasts to his own team

There are a couple of problems. One being the talent found in Canada however the big problem is the coaching. Leo has to admit he can't coach a team without a lot of talent and needs to hand over the job to someone who can make something out of nothing. Personally, I believe that it doesn't matter how bad the players are, if you have the prefect coach, they will win. Leo Rautins unfortunantely is not that coach for Canada.

BRAY, you're not the only one frustrated by the performance of canada. Trust me! It's very painful to watch the team not live up to expectations year after year. I think the talent is there to have a better record in international competitions, but IMO the infrastructure is lacking in this country for b ball.

Ummm, Im gonna have to disagree man. You can't make something out of nothin.

So you're basically saying we can have players with no talent and have a coach like Popovich and Canada will win games. No, that's not how it works in real life.

You have got to have talent AND a good coach!

The basketball system in ontario alone sucks. What do you expect? Kids with talent go south of the border always. If Canada doesn't get a gold in hockey then we should rip our heads off

What's wrong with them going South? They're still Canadian. The more kids that go South the better, that's where the elite coaching is. I can't think of any "Canadians" off the top of my head that have defected and played on the American team.


The team we've watched the last week has drawn from a generation of mediocre Canadian ballers. The next generation of Canadian ballers is so intriguing it's not even funny - we've got a handful of uber talented cats that are playing or will be playing in elite American programs, and the NBA is within reach for a number of these guys. Things can only go up from here.

Let's all hope that is the case!
