Five Thoughts: FIBA World Cup and Team Canada

I’m really grateful for the FIBA World Cup happening right now, as we get to see a brand of basketball that’s significantly better than the Summer League, and whatever glorified ball runs we get from various trainers. Let’s set aside the thought of whether “player X” has lost/gained weight, or whether they have incorporated new skills based on their Instagram post.

Let’s enjoy a high quality basketball tournament, where every team (or country) is fighting tooth and nail with possibly Olympic berth on the line, and at the very least, pride for representing their flag. The Americans may be the favourites to win the tourney, but Team Canada ain’t that bad, or should I say, I think they’re pretttyyyy good.
