Team Canada

What the hell. Team Canada's training camp roster is now:

their original list already had names like Andrew Wiggins, Ignas Brazdeikas,Tyler Ennis, Andrew Nicholson notably absent:

Then they lost almost every NBA player on the list:

RJ Barret, Jamal Murray (injuries)

NAW, SGA, Dwight Powell, Nic Stauskas, Tristan Thompson, Trey Lyles, Dillon Brooks, Brandon Clarke, Luguentz Dort, Marial Shayok, Kabengele, Mitrou-Long, etc etc.

Looks like it's going to be another typical team Canada made mostly of a handfull of (unnecessarily preferred) CIS trained athletes, a couple fringe NBA players, and average Euro players, plus Joseph, Olynyk... who are probably the only two names on that list I would choose for my Canadian "deam team" other than maybe Kevin Pangos (should be in the NBA).

Does not look like a team that will challange for a medal. At this point, I thought Canadian talent was so deep that drop outs wouldn't be too big of a problem. So Dissapointed!
