Cavs’ Thompson: Canada Future Olympic Force
After winning one Olympic medal in almost a century of existence, Canada’s men’s basketball program has received an influx of young talent, including the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft (Anthony Bennett) and the top newcomer to college basketball (Andrew Wiggins). And some of those young Canadian players think mighty USA Basketball should start to worry about its northern neighbors.
“Most definitely,” said Cleveland Cavaliers forward and Toronto native Tristan Thompson. “They still have the Chris Pauls, Kevin Loves, those guys that are talented. But as they start getting older, we’re going into our prime with young guys that are talented and can make noise.”
