We really need the young core to come in. Thompson and Joseph in particular. Aren't they old enough to do so?

Rest up their body for the player association meetings?

Too bad, I was looking forward to see if they can help the national team.

Another loss to France, this time by 17 points (86-69). Not sure if this is good sign lol.Andy Rautins with 18 pts to lead the team.

He's been unsuccessful in trying to get a citizenship.

The fact Bonner, a former member of the Toronto Raptors and current forward with the San Antonio Spurs, has been unsuccessful in procuring his Canadian citizenship, despite getting the ball rolling back in 2008, upsets Rautins to no end.

“It’s very frustrating,” the head coach said on Tuesday, after a Team Canada practice at Ryerson University. “I see a lot of Canadians who are less Canadian than Matt Bonner. His daughter’s Canadian. His wife’s Canadian. His grandfather’s Canadian. He’s got a home here. When he’s not playing for the San Antonio Spurs, he’s here (in Toronto).”

The main stumbling block seems to be the fact that Bonner, a native of Concord, N.H., spends most of the year in the United States. But he has no choice. He plays for San Antonio. Rautins said Canada Basketball has tried to make that point to the federal immigration ministry, but to no avail.

Yeah Chig, get those tissues ready. Team Canada drops another one 79-72 to Bulgaria. Here's the box score (Italian site):

Team Canada is facing Italy tomorrow. Think Bargnani is playing?
