Canada’s basketball squad is filled with exciting, talented players like Andrew Wiggins, Cory Joseph, Kelly Olynyk, Nik Stauskas and Anthony Bennett. But as a young team, they have a tendency to play down to teams from time to time. On Friday night, it looked like they might be able to survive a sub-par effort against Venezuela as long as they could get one last stop at the end of regulation to force overtime. Then this happened: YAY WE’RE GOING TO OVERTIME … except they didn’t, because the referees called a foul on the scrum under the basket going after the missed shot.

With training camp underway, it’s no surprise to see head coach Jay Triano leaning on his point guard. Don’t let the age fool you, Joseph is wise beyond his years. “He’s our starting point guard,” Triano said just after the team’s afternoon practice let out at the Air Canada Centre late last week. “He’s a guy we’re going to lean on to run this team. He did a great job with us last year when we were overseas playing 11 games in Europe. He’s understanding the international game better. He just keeps getting better and he’s a big part of what we’re doing. We expect him to be the floor general and the leader on the floor.” “I’ve been the point guard of this team for awhile now,” Joseph echoed. “So I’m comfortable with that position, with that role, trying to be an extension of the coach on the court [while] obviously still learning. I know a lot of these guys, but a lot of these guys improved since I last played with them. So [I’m] still learning everybody’s game, we’re getting comfortable with each other, gaining experience, and we should be good.”

So, you started your career with the Spurs, which is an incredible organization to start with. What was your first introduction with Pop like? What was that first interactive experience because I feel like that could be incredibly intimidating. Cory Joseph: There was no interaction. He didn’t talk to me for a year (smiles). DB: That’s amazing. Cory Joseph: My first interaction after that…after a year…was…it was good. He was pretty welcoming after that.
