LEBANON 81, CANADA 71 - Canada loses jersey numbers and opening game at the FIBA Worlds

Canada dropped their opening game at the Turkey FIBA World Championships to Lebanon 81-71.  It was a disappointing loss for the Canucks as Lebanon outscored Canada 23-14 in the final quarter.  Even more embarrassing was the fact that some of the numbers on team Canada's jerseys were peeled off during the game.

David Andersen Youtube Mix!!!

In the biggest offseason acquisition for the Toronto Raptors, the team has acquired centre David Andersen from the Houston Rockets for a second rounder.  Who is David Andersen? I really don't know BUT.....he has a Youtube Mix!

You be the judge.

Rippin' The Raps!

Now that Hedo Turkoglu got out of Toronto, it didn't take long for him to rip on Bryan Colangelo and the Raptors organization.

From The Star.com:

“People have to realize something is wrong with that organization and nobody wants to go there anymore,” he said in a phone interview from Turkey. “It’s not just the players who see this.”
