what i learned from this video: there's a 5 foul limit in international ball?!

also i always wondered, where does canada get its players from? i'm pretty sure there's no minor league basketball league in canada so are there canadian players overseas or something?

Why you didn't build your own league? Only one Nba team is enough for you?

because we'll wind up with crap players
football is the 2nd most popular sport in the county and the CFL is vastly inferior to the NFL and there are no other leagues to compete with. With basketball we'll have to compete with USA, Europe and Asian leagues, so the league will be worse then CFL

I would much rather watch a summer league across Canada, 8 or 9 teams like the CFL wiht canadians playing in it , over the CFL any day of the week but then again not everyone is a basketball fan,

that average CFL guys makes 40 or 50 grands for a 50 man roster, how about a 12 man roster making 100 grand each with all the best canadians playing in it

plus this would boost our national team product, and the game of basketball

20 game schedule with playoffs

plus this gives our canadian players a chance, the guys who come out of college and have no where to go plus the CIS guys have some where to go, or the guys who play euro league can spend there summers improving there skills, you could do a rule wiht every team allowing 1 international player,

cities

Vancouver
Victoria
Edmonton
Calgary
Regina
Winnipeg
Toronto
Ottawa
Montreal
Quebec City
Halifax

I know this some kind of warped pipe dream but it would be cool watching some of our own play basketball, hell I'm enjoying the hell out of Canada Basketball
