The future still looks bright, but this one hurts!

that Venezuela game was sketchy with the refs, but this game we lost with Argentina we lost fair and square,

Are guys are young but we still should have enough experience to win at least 1 of the last 3 games to get us into the world cup

I'm excited about the future but very disappointed that we didn't get in because most teams don't even have their A team, also I would like to say even though where getting re-enforcements its still a little troubling considering Wiggins won't be on this team next year for the play in games for the world cup

we need pangos to step in and take over the back up pg duties that really hurt us with Anderson not being capable of doing the job then triano left trying to use heslip on those duties which cost us the game really with that bad foul with two shots and the ball

also triano reminds me how he coach with the raptors, live or die by the 3, also he made a huge mistake not trying to rest some players, I would have rather just give a game away rest cory joseph and andy rautins it's a strategy that European teams use I would have like to have seen us rest all our guys against Venezuela lose that game and come in fresh against the Dominican

Apparently it's sketchy and you got teams that are willing to buy there way in. I think fiba needs to step and do canada a favor after that Venezuela game it was clear the refs were after us

Especially considering some of the future stars in the league will be on our team. It will help there gate

I'm worried with Nash at the helm now because he loves Triano so much. Triano should be administrating and Nash needs to try his hand at coaching.


Either that or he needs to hire Micheal Ray Richardson. He's the anti-Triano as far as coaching.

Decent shot, Brazil is the host so they'll probably get one for sure. Russia is another favourite. 2 more available.

costs 500k just to apply..

Spain is host in 2014...

I'm not sure we have a decent shot...Just look at the European teams that won't even make round 2. Germany, Turkey, Russia...one of Lithuania/Bosnia/Serbia, Czech/, FYR Macedonia who had a good run at the Olympics last time out. Then their are going to be another 6 European teams that will make round 2 and not win a spot, likely teams like Ukraine/Finland/Great Britain, but then some historically strong international programs as well with strong reputations.

If anything Canada would be a long-shot.

Their wasn't much help in FIBAASIA or FIBAAFRICA either with China, Tunisia and Nigeria all not qualifying.

China the top team in Asia (11th worldwide) came 5th in the FIBAtournament and didn't qualify. They'll probably win a wild card. Definitely a long-shot.

Russia/Turkey/Brazil/China/Nigeria/Tunisia/Great Britain/Venezuela//Lithuania (maybe) all currently have higher world rankings and have already lost out on an automatic qualification (Lebanon suspended). 9 teams not including probably another 1-3 that lose in the next round of Eurobasket.

I'm not sure what opportunities there are for Canada to prove themselves before Spain in 2014.
