OK peeps, after the first few days at the Development Camp earlier this week, the team is now set and ready to take on the world - well some European teams and the Ivory Coast anyway. There are some great and skilled guys on the team with names you may remember and some you may not. A great group of players without a doubt but there is something odd about the final roster ...
I know that as Canadian basketball fans, we are all quick to jump on our "Next Big Player" since, relatively speaking, Canada produces so few that make the bigger stages. Well, I must say that Kris Joseph is one of those players and though he was at the Development Camp for the full week, as far as I know, he did not end up on the final roster. He has the talent to be there and I would place he before some of the guys that are on the list but why is he missing? I don't know why. Maybe he had something come back to haunt him or is he taking this time to re-coop since he mentioned he was getting achy at the camp from the work he's been putting in. Who knows at this point. All I know is that he's missing and there is a player on the roster that wasn't at the camp.
Bottom line is "What up?"
UPDATE: Thanks to the wonderful world of Twitter and @ ACMESalesRep, here is the reason Joseph is not with the Development Team in Europe.
