    I see, in fact he didn't have a great final game.

    Here are the high scorers of the top 4 teams:

    USA Midwest - Archie Goodwin 17.3ppg, 54.8%FG, 2.3spg
    Canada - Andrew Wiggins 21.0ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.7apg
    USA East - Omar Calhoun 21.7ppg, 4.7rpg, 1.7apg, 1.3spg
    USA West - Aaron Gordon 21.3ppg, 64.1%FG, 6.7rpg, 3.0apg 2.0spg

    Jernell Stokes and Tony Parker (USA Midwest) were the best rebounders with 11.3 and 11.0rpg, with Parker averaging a double double (11.3ppg).

    LJ Rose and Dominic Artis (USA West) the best passer with 5.7 and 4.7 apg.

    Archie Goodwin was highest in steals (2.3spg).

    USA East Nerlens Noel was the best blocker with 2.0bspg.

    Most outstanding overall stats: Aaron Gordon, followed by Canada's Anthony Bennett (16.0ppg, 62.5%FG, 7.7rpg, 2.7apg, 1.3spg).

    Detailed stats of each player of the 4 finalist teams can be found in the attachment (sorry for the decimals separator in the table !).

    From what I heard, Thompson was advised to skip the national team due to the lockout.
    Who advised him this and why? Enes Kanter, picked one spot ahead of TT is playing for Turkey this summer, as is Jo Val, picked one a spot after TT, playing for Lithuania. TT'sfellow countryman, Corey Joseph, the Spurs first round pick, is supposedly joining the national team. If those three unsigned rookies can play for their national team, so can TT. Bottom line: He should be playing in the Americas Championships for Canada.
