Eric Smith asked Dalembert "whats your status with the Canadian team, are you planning to play for Team Canada again" and Dalembert replied "When they get a real coach ill think about it"

I am sure Leo is fuming right now...

Meh, I personally can't stand either of them, so it falls on deaf ears for me. I just thought its something to post about today, so why not?

I couldn't care less about either as well but it's funny... when was the last time you heard a player say something like about his former coach?

What a joke. The last thing I read about sammy - is that the sixers brought in a coach specifically for him, and he fails to work with him at all.

Either you want to play for your country or you don't. You don't bring the same NBA sensibilities about it being a business as a well as a game into the equation. It is nothing but a game when you play for your country. Don't be telling me about what needs must be met for you. Just play. Or leave it to the amateurs, as it should always have been left anyway.

I am sick of the game meaning so fucking little.

He thinks he's some sort of superstar when he's not - he wants preferred treatment, and I agree that he DOES NOT/SHOULD NOT get it. I'd rather have guys who actually want to play for this country instead of primmadonnas.

The only reason he was playing for Canada is because Leo persuaded him it would be good for his NBA carrier.

I know Leo's not very popular but I admire how he handled the Dalembert situation last summer. It took balls.
No player should think he's bigger than the program (even if that program is Canada Basketball).
There are a lot of players who would bend over backwards to play for this country. We don't need jerks who can't play within the team concept anyway. Playing like a real team is the only way Canada can have success on the world stage.

It's pretty obvious that Dalembert never had any desire to play for this country, he just wanted to use Team Canada as a way to further himself.

As good a player as he is, as far as I'm concerned he has no place on Team Canada. We want Canadians - not opportunists.

What do u guys mean we don't need him? He did a nice defensive job on bosh.. and has always been a pretty decent center in the league.

Nash/Brown/Anthony/Bonner/Dalembert

not TOO bad.

Joel Anthony at the 3? Really?

And Nash already stated that he's not going to play international ball anymore.

Trust when S.D plays against T.O, he knows Mr. Leo is watching.
