Dort played 32 minutes last night and did the impossible by basically shutting down Harden. Incredible stuff from the rookie. Experts are saying hes already an elite defender.

Awesome game from Dort!


We saw this coming with Iggy - but I wasn’t sure about it as long as he was playing in North America.

I suspect the Wolves have been trying to trade him, but they should have struck a deal after the hot start.
He has reverted to his typical level and his stats, while still better than the previous couple seasons, are now below what they were in his 2nd and 3rd seasons.

Dont let the door hit you on the way out. You're a millionaire now, live where you want to live. Weve got better options.

Its always a bummer to see home grown world class talent opt not to play for Canada no matter the sport.

And if we have better options, you are probably right, but it’s is also saying he was not good enough to help our World Cup team (probably not true). Because that is the best team Canada has shown it can floor to date, until shown otherwise. Who knows what Iggy becomes in the future and/or what we can put on the floor. Regardless if he is leaving to join a competitor and make them better, I’d rather he stay in Canada’s stable (even if he never plays for Canada)

That said, to each their own and if this is his dream, I’m happy to see him chase it. And if he ends up being an important piece for Lithuania in the future (questionable) then it’s more ongoing evidence that Canada has the coaching and development infrastructure to continually produce world class basketball players. Because clearly Iggy is a product of Canadian basketball.

And anyone wants to moan too loudly about this, you’ll need to consider your views on Trey Lyles, Kyle Wiltjer and Brandon Clarke. None too different from what Iggy is doing here.

Broadcast confirmed it is a torn Achilles and out for the year. This sucks.

We are getting very thin up front. Might have to start looking closer at how Kabengele is coming along. Or pay some attention to a Kyle Alexander.


At least Khem Birch seems hardcore committed. Him with some bigger PFs filling in behind him would not be the worst thing. Boucher? Lyles?
There is some hope for Olynyk I suppose (or maybe I am confused there) and maybe a miracle with TT getting extended.

What a shame. Powell was having a very solid year. He was (arguably) the best Canadian in the NBA so far this season.

That's sucks for Dwight and Team Canada. I was looking forward to what Nick Nurse could unlock from his potential especially on the defensive end.

You are not wrong but Clarke has no formal ties to Canada Basketball that we know about. Yet. Birch and Boucher have played and publicly expressed interest to play again this summer. Trey Lyles as well.

Hopefully he does in the upcoming months.

Brutal!
Powell was playing so well. I feel for the guy.

Kabengele was the player of the week in the g-league. It looks like he will be in Victoria.

Murray's injury is very concerning too. If he doesn't get it to 100% before he comes back it may linger all season. There is a possibility that he doesn't play. Brace yourselves. I would imagine we wont see Brooks either. He is an RFA at the end of this year and it doesn't sound like an extension is coming . He is playing very good right now and will get a lot of interest. There could be a huge contract waiting for him and playing before he gets it could cost him millions. He has said he is in for sure, but money talks. He said that before the season and things have changed.

Athletic guard that fits the mold of a Nurse defensive scheme!
