As we reach the slow news month of August, Andrew Riche and Adam Murray of Place To Be Nation’s NBA-Team Podcast dive into the international waters. This week, they discuss the rise of Canadian basketball in high school, college, and the NBA. What kind of impact did the Toronto Raptors and Vancouver Grizzlies have on today’s burgeoning Canadian basketball stars? Why does one co-host think Andrew Wiggins will be more important to basketball in Canada than two-time MVP and future Hall of Famer Steve Nash? Will Canada’s roster without Tristan Thompson be able to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro? Adam and Riche also discuss tons of subjects from the Great White North, from Ro Russell to Rick Fox to Jamal Murray to, yes, even Todd McCullough. So suit up and take it out with this Maple Leaf edition of the NBA-Team!
