Hey, spanishman..

Why does Canada have three stars in your ranking? Just curious..

Also, what is the deal with overrating Brazil? Did you not see them last year?
Do you remember how bad their chemistry is? They have no contributors, each perimeter player needs the ball to create, but just for himself. No real leaders, no team players. Splitter is the team's best big but he is no star. Varejao is just a role player. By the way, Nene is not playing, I hope you know that.

As for the past Americas tournament, Brazil won in the last minutes vs a true 2nd unit of Argentina in the final game. Now, with Scola, Sanchez, Prigioni, Delfino, Wolkowisky coming from their starting team, I think it's just not even close..

1. USA :) :) :) :) :)
2. Argentina :) :) :) :)
3. Brazil :) :) :)
4. Puerto Rico :) :) :)

Then, all the rest..

Nene Hilario is on the list. I don´t know if play in Vegas finally, but if Brazil don´t win Argentina without Nocioni, Herrmann, Ginobili and Oberto... when will do it????
Canada is five because they have a very good perimeter shooter (English), basketball IQ (Rautins, Jermaine Anderson), Athleticism, defence and scoring power (Denham Brown, Méndez and Famutimi)... If Magloire joins the team... Canadian national team will be better and will have some chances to obtain an olympian bid.

This two player I think are out of the NT
-Pepe and Wolko aren't out yet, but they haven't announced a decision. (it was a bad time for F/C Juan Gutiérrez to get such a bad injury... he was going to have a big chance this year)

-There's absolutely NO WAY Nené is playing for Brazil. And I don't trust Brazilian NT as long as they have Lula Ferreira as coach. They are great players but they suck as a team, and proved it last year. They could only beat Argentina B because of a amazing streak of 6 threes by Leandrinho in six consecutive possessions, and won that tourney because PuR and USA didn't have their best.

-Nájera quit on Mexican NT, again. The Federation says it's because he wants money and they don't have it. Horacio Llamas says it's because of physical issues.

Man some harsh rankings for Canada...I guess people
don't know a lot about the players we have, if anything
Our main weakness in-experience but we do have talent.

Like somebody else mentioned Carl English is one of the
best scorers in europe, Denham Brown was one of the
top scorers in the NDBL and is better in int. competion,
Juan Mendez was the leading scorer in the NCAA in his
last year, Olu Famitimi was a mcdonalds all-American
and a heavily recruited player, Levon kendal torched
the USA for 40 pts in the U-22 world championships,
Rautins is a very good three point shooter and is
the son of Canada's coach, Tristan Blackwood had
somewhat of a breakout season this year in the NCAA
but I don't think is worthy of the starting spot,
Dave Thomas who is an all-star player in Australia is
also available.

Canada's strengths are in Scoring, shooting and
athleticism but we lack a great PG or a great big
man. I say Canada can surprise people this year
for sure but we need more experience. We have
a lot of talented young players so I think if
we get a new coach in a couple years we will
can be as high as top 3 in the America's.

It would be great if Dalembert could play for us, it would
make us a better defensive team right away. If Dalembert
plays for Canada this summer I think we can make some
big upsets....if only we had a better coach :( Does the guy

MEX - Waiting for Mata
CIUDAD MEXICO (FIBA Americas Championship 2007) - Mexico's National Team is waiting for Lorenzo MATA informed its head coach, Nolan Richardson.

After finishing their first week of training, and after 15 players were cut, the national team, which is preparing in Ciudad Juarez for the FIBA Americas Championship (from August 22 to September 2) awaits for Lorenzo Mata.

"Right now, it is all about being selective. After June 8 or 9, Lorenzo Mata (with experience in the NCAA), Adam Parada and Omar Quintero will join the team", said Richardson. "I really believe in our chances to qualify to the Olympic Games", he mentioned.

The coach confirms the arrival of the UCLA player, who after some doubts about his capability will finally play. In regards to the situation with the NBA players, Eduardo Najera (Denver) and Earl Watson (Seattle), who was born in the United States, Richardson said that both answered his phone calls but refuse to reveal if they refused to play.
Preparation tour

Those pre-selected players will be making a trip, as part of their preparation process, in which they will face the Phoenix Stara, from May 31 till June 9. After that they will recess, only to get back together again in Mexico's Federal Disctrict (Distrito Federal) during the first weeks of July.

The tour's schedule goes as follows:

Thursday, May 31 - Ciudad Juarez
Saturday, June 2nd - Ciudad Delicias
Monday, June 4th - Cuidad Cuauhtemoc
Wednesday, June 6th - Ciudad Jimenez
Friday, June 8th - Chihuahua

Thats ok. our current coach Leo Rautins has Lithuanian blood so maybe

Funny thing with the Argentinean NT is the fact that only 6 of the 17 players called do not play in Spain :D

Otherwise, decent roster, despite absences, they should still finish second in the Pan American tournament. Whatever the Brazilian team does, they can still not bring a better PG duo than Sanchez and Prigioni and they wont be able to stop Scola in the paint.

As for Delfino, this is his chance to blossom..

GASTÓN PÁEZ



I know that Uruguay does not compare against the big 3 - Argentina, Brazil and Puerto Rico ... but I hope that they can come up with some WINS ... and possbily replace Venezuela to try and go to the Qualifying Tournament.

The Uruguayans are definitely my third favourite national team after (Australia and Philippines).
Here in my adopted country (Uruguay) basketball is quite popular (2nd and has strong lead ahead of Rugby Union) and the national league is growing in terms of level and fan following.
Hence, if the national team led by NBA Atlanta Hawk´s big man Estaban Batista does very well like in any country this could boost the popularity of basketball.
The national team is has a very intense schedule (currently in Spain playing exhibition games). Hopefully, this pays dividends.


There is one youngster in this squad by the name of Jason Granger (his father is Jeff Granger - a former import for numerous Uruguayan basketball clubs during the 80s and 90s) who is only 18 years old and has had numerous success so far in his playing career. He led the South American Cadet Tournament in scoring (27ppg - from the point guard position) and is currently playing in Spain´s Estudiantes (reserve squad). He is only 180cm and could be a name to remember. He´s father is a naturalised Uruguayan from USA and his mother is Uruguayan.

Whoa, you just proved you didn't read anything about Canada from earlier
in the thread....We have promising young players and other proven
pro players and if Dalembert plays then I say we can stun A LOT of
teams. If anyone else disrespects Canada again I'll smack them with
a beaver. :) :) :)
