Sim's a sophomore, but yeah

Sim's a sophomore, but yeah still really young and can get even bigger.

I think Mangisto Arop could become a decent player down the line too...

Kadeem Green is more like

Kadeem Green is more like Devin Ebanks, hes a way better defender than Travis Outlaw already, but hes nowhere near there yet offensively but i think he could develop into a late first rounder, teams will fall in love with his workouts, he has every physical skill you could want, but he still has top work on his offensive game a lot.

Canada isnt there quite yet but in 5 years they could be dominant, and they should do decent in the 2012 Olympics.

The funny thing is I left so

The funny thing is I left so much talent off the page because I thought people would just get bored and stop reading.

Also these players all have a commitment to defense, academic focus, and desire to make the NBA that alot of Americans take for granted (not saying all American players just saying some have maturity issues).

Canadians are gonna be flooding into the NBA at a large rate with 2 or 3 first rounders a year in the next 5 drafts at least.

Maybe it's a good time to start creating a relocation plan for Vancouver to get a new team since now the NBA will have some star players that wont mind being a building block of a Canadian NBA Franchise.

These arent just role players theres about 5 - 10 Potential Allstars here and so many more I didnt list.

When you think of a Canadian

When you think of a Canadian player you think of Grit, Toughness, and Desire to win.Just like Steve Nash who i purposely left off this page, Joel Anthony, Dalembert and Bonner

They are all gritty and tough players

you left off Junior Cadougan,

you left off Junior Cadougan, spent most of the year injured but could be decent for Canada, and how could you leave Kevin Pangos off? he made their roster as a junior in high school.

Canada Basketball

First one posted, last one read, sorry about that :). Well, chakras, I too am somewhat excited about Canada improving in basketball. But, I think saying they could compete for a medal in 2012 is pushing it. First they need to make the Olympics, than we can talk medals. We barely made it into the World Championships this year in Turkey, so I think it is not a sure thing that this team will even be on the court in 2012. Also, let some of these guys actually play in college before putting them on a Canadian Men's Team. I think the future is very bright, but in two years a lot of the kids on this team are going to be 20-22 years old. I would say look towards maybe 2016 in Rio (I think?), where we may have a bunch of players who have played on the top European pro/NBA level. Than we can talk about competing for medals, though there is no telling how much the other countries might have improved by than either.

Many other countries have

Many other countries have improved drastically.The reason I unbiastly rank Canada ahead of ahead of them is because of the Defense these kids play and how bad they really want it.

The reason I said compete for a medal is because I do think they will show up and work opposing teams but when you talk about U.S.A. Spain Argentina and other teams it's hard to get a medal.

But once again 2016 I think Canada is Top 5 without a doubt.
