Andrew Wiggins (aka 1st overall draft pick in 2014)
Anthony Bennett (aka 1st overall draft pick in 2013)
Steve Nash (aka Mr 2 time MVP)
Tristan Thompson (aka Mr double double)
Andrew Nicholson
Kris Joseph
Robert Sacre
Cory Joseph
Joel Anthony (aka Mr 2 rings)
Kelly Olynyk (aka best college basketball player last year)


Looks like a solid list.

If that's true then the gap between the USA and everyone else is bigger than I thought

Yes.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised that we'd have at least 5 teams in a couple of decades. We lost Vancouver, but we can get that back.

Maybe not possible for now, but there's a huge market for basketball here. There's potential.

We're still getting our azzes handed to us on the national stage. MAYBE that will change once Wiggins plays for Canada but until then we kinda suck.

Since I'm a patriot and only pay attention to sports America is good at I may be off base, but are Spanish soccer clubs even made up of Spanish players?

Have you ever heard of the Spanish national soccer team? It was pretty much 80% of the barcelona players.

The problem Canada has had on the world stage is that our best players haven't been playing in the Olympics. Guys need to get more national pride

These 5 teams would beat Canada by 20 points anytime
