After all the hype of the NBA in Canada producing more talent in Canada the higher expectations this translates into better national teams would be expected .
All the high drafts and hoopla over this really just translates into individuals who are Canadian playing in the NBA and not so much about Canada being represented .
Not that I blame them millions upon millions are at stake now .
The Toronto Raptors in Canada in terms of the mens national team success has never materialized .
One of the motives surrounding MLS inception and the CPL is to have better teams representing the US and Canada in soccer nationally .
One would expect that would also be the case for the NBA in Canada if the NBA is the best league in the world and we have more players than ever playing pro in the NBA .
Maybe it's the selection of players or they don't mix right or the coach has trouble getting them to buy into the team's game plan .
They need a Jack Donohue type again to restore certain number of players that buy into the national team aspirations .
