Were the Kings trying Stauskas at SF on occasion this past season?

    I didn't see any Canada game in Fiba Americas, but it was the same during Marchand Cup - Stauskas listed as SF, Wiggins as guard, but on court it was conversely. let's say Wiggins was playin' against Nocioni, Stauskas against Argentinian SGs

    Stauskas is a SG.
    If he is listed as a SF it is incorrect. Fiba routinely butchers names so why not positions?

    FIBA again had Stauskas listed as SF for yesterday's game against Puerto Rico.

    A potential Group of Death in the OQT, with 2 European teams in the fray.

    I knew it, Canadian basketball has the worst luck in FIBA Americas. Has the talent, but can't win it all.

    Well they say that you have to learn how to lose before you can learn how to win. Hopefully the lesson from Venezuela on Friday will be sufficient for Team Canada to advance to the next level.

    Still you have to give credit to the players on the Canadian team for yesterday's Bronze Medal victory over Mexico which required overcoming both the psychological blow of the heartbreaking loss to Venezuela and the absence of two starters due to illness. They showed the determination to elevate their games after the previous day's loss and Cory Joseph's buzzer beater to give Canada the victory was good to see as partial amelioration for the previous day's failure.

    He is in the dog house of Canadian fans and seems to be trying to dig himself out.

    no one in Canada has taken his words seriously. And I for one am angry he would even say that.

    Well, well! So in Perth, Australia earlier today it was:

    Canada 90 Australia 70

    Canada was led by PG Kevin Pangos with his 18 points, 5 assists and 4 steals. Backup PG Phil Scrubb chipped in with 10 points. Maybe Cory Joseph's absence isn't that important after all.
