    I see that FIBA has now corrected the point totals in the standings. While teams get one point for a loss, forfeits yield zero points.

    The talent is there - the structural issues with poor NBA participation, media attention, poor management and coaching are still there but they seem to be moving in the right direction.
    Great answer mojo. I quoted optimistic part. You have plenty of talent and with time you should build a solid BB culture.

    Jamal Murray with a 48 point game.
    Shai Gilgeous Alexander starting the season really well - very impressive so far. Got his first start for the Clippers last night.
    Dillon Brooks started slow, but is now playing well the last few games.
    Nik Stauskas is even having a career resurgence! (I wonder if he will ever play for Canada again?)

    And a very interesting NCAA season kicks off tonight - with, by my count, no less than a dozen Canadian NBA prospects and a solid chance of 3-5 drafted in the 2019 first round.

    For those interested in reading more on the NCAA prospects:
