A Quick Article About Canada and Basketball

Joe StrummerContributor IIIJune 12, 2010

I wasn't to happy to see that Canada's national basketball team is ranked 19th in the world. I thought with our NBA talents we'd be near the top of the list. Then I remembered watching FIBA World Championship and Canada was awful. I looked up the teams roster and was unfamiliar with all the players except 2 ,Joel Anthony and Andy Rautins. Just to make sure I wasn't crazy I looked up Canadian NBA players. And I found...

Steve Nash (Pheonix Suns) Point Guard

Jamaal Magloire (Miami)Centre

Samuel Dalembert (Philly) Centre

and of course...

Joel Anthony (Miami) Centre

and new Canadian...

Matt Bonner (San Antonio)Centre

Now I know they are almost all centre's but I am sure a team with these players would be more successful then what Canada is currently using.

Canada has the talent, they just have to use it.
