World Cup update: Who you got, Slovenia or Canada?

On paper, the FIBA World Cup quarterfinal match between Slovenia and Canada looks like a complete mismatch, something like John Wayne against Barney Fife.

Slovenia has one NBA player on its roster: Luka Donu010diu0107.

Canada has seven, plus another who will be in the NBA as soon as he elects to leave college (Zach Edey).

But we’ve learned never to call anything a mismatch when one of the gunslingers in the duel is Donu010diu0107.

OK, the nitpickers will say that center Mike Tobey, an American by birth, and guard Zoran Dragic each had a cup of coffee in the NBA years ago.
