Andrew Wiggins Explains if Canada’s Talent Can Match USA's in Basketball (Video)

Laugh if you want, but Canada Basketball is on the rise with a national team roster that could soon give Team USA the run they’ve wanted for years now.

With a young lineup full of NBA talents, Canada is set to replace Spain and Argentina as the toughest challenger USA Basketball, according to Andrew Wiggins.

Even after Canada failed to qualify for the 2016 Olympics, Wiggins loved his team’s chances against the rest of the world if the full roster would have made that trip.

“I wish we would have made it when we had the qualifier in Mexico last summer,” Wiggins said. “Even looking at the Olympics now, looking at the teams that were in there. The Canadian team has the second most talent on there.

“I feel like we would have competed and played hard and played a big factor in that Olympics but you know, we’re looking forward to Tokyo in four years."

Wiggins, for his part, used the urgency of this upcoming season for the Minnesota Timberwolves as priority over participation with Team Canada in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament that was held (July 5-10).

Canada’s National Team has a young and potentially loaded roster that now includes Tristan Thompson, Corey Joseph, Tyler Ennis, with Wiggins and Jamal Murray joining the program as well. Other possible candidates include Trey Lyles, Kelly Olynyk and others.

Von Miller Explains How "Dancing With The Stars" Made Him a Better Player

Von Miller missed a ton of time with the Denver Broncos this spring amid a contract dispute and not wanting to get hurt while placed under the franchise tag.

Miller found other ways to stay fit and nimble, saying that “Dancing with the Stars” helped him develop a more complete work ethic he’s now bringing to the field.

“I’ve never put six hours into one thing every single day, not even football,” Miller said, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN. “We practice for two hours. (Dancing) made me consistent. It made me have to come to work every single day and be consistent and work on something that I wasn’t really good at. When I come out here and play football, this is what I do. I’m a professional football player, so it’s easier for me to do this. I think having to struggle with that is definitely helping me here.

“I already had agility and flexibility, but the consistent part, coming into work and doing something that I’m not good at and have (dance partner) Witney (Carson) really depend on me to get my job done, that’s the correlation that it has on the football field. I’m not tackling guys on the dance floor. The work that you put in to be a great dancer has a direct correlation to the work that you have to put in to be a great football player.”

That’s why fresh off a Super Bowl MVP, Miller just racked up the AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for three impressive sacks in the Broncos win over the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday.

I see a sack record being challenged.
