    Probably right. HOWEVER, I am allowed my opinion. I did say it cracks the door ever so slightly.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Here's a helpful preview of the Canada-Brazil game from the FIBA website: http://www.fiba.basketball/basketbal...roup-f-opening

    Note that it reports that Duke phenom RJ Barrett is not playing this round, due to commitments to Duke. (Boo, Coach K!)

    Linked in that story is this video of KO highlights from Round 1:

    Of course you are. But he's projected #10 on 2 different mocks and that's before the season even starts:

    Terrific game for KO, with Canada winning it 85-77. Brazil was definitely pesky....

    That was a nasty dunk! Love that Ira and Rui are ballin together on a big stage. Methinks the confident attitude Ira plays with - how he just power dunks on people - will be a very good influence on Rui. Like Ira gets a couple games to show Rui: it’s ok young fella, let loose and play like this for the Zags this year!!

    wonder if any american college is better represented in these competitions than we are.

    heck, we even had DS on the USA senior men's team for this world cup qualifying cycle.

    eta: flex, i made some room in my inbox. sorry about that.

    From the Canada-Brazil press conference, it sounds as if Kelly and Kevin won't be joining the team in the next game in Chile on Monday Sept. 17. Dang!

    Edited to add: Looks like Canada will be playing with a limited squad for the next several games, due to NBA and other team restrictions. Too bad ...

    It's unfortunate but that's kind of the case for everybody, although obviously it affects Canada more than say Chile. Hopefully FIBA and the NBA/EL can figure out a better solution moving forward.

    That said, Canada is in very strong shape with that win. With two home games versus Chile/Venezuela still to come, they should pull through with their Gleague/non Euroleague guys.

    From the box score, Canada looks much like a good Zag team (with 2 Zags even) in that they had 6 guys with double digit scoring, really amazing distribution.

    Love cheering for my native land.

    Which would be worse, caught out in the water with four or five Great White Sharks, or caught out in the water with hundreds of piranhas?

    Would undoubtedly achieve the same end as the ill-fated Snuffy the Seal.

    cold water worse
    Dissent, insight and contextual discussion makes a website 'sticky' and engaging - not just predictable, safe position fanboyism. Monoculture is uninteresting and lacks intellectual depth.

    0-2 from 3 so that is bad news in that it doesn't stretch the defense.

    o-2 from 3 so that is good news because it cracks the door ever so slightly on a possible return next year.
    His poor 3-pt shooting is not a good sign for him or us this coming season...maybe it is just one game so there might be hope! The 3pt shot is where he will make his money in the NBA or have a short career, because he won't be playing the PF position in the NBA...
