Raptors guards Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are All-Stars in the East, and Canadians Andrew Wiggins, Trey Lyles and Dwight Powell will play for the World team in the Rising Stars Challenge. “It’s incredible that a young player in Canada can turn on the TV and he’s got a better than 50% chance that he see will an NBA player from Canada playing,” Nash told USA TODAY Sports. “That’s definitely changed. That was rare when I was in high school and college. Now, it’s expected and commonplace.”
Dwight Powell had returned to his mother’s home in Boston from Toronto, where he worked out for the Canadian National Team. Less than a week later, Powell’s life turned upside down when his mother, Jacqueline Weir, suddenly died following a short bout with breast cancer at age 53. Powell’s mother hid the fact she was sick from him. “She just didn’t tell me,” said Powell, who is entering his second season with the Dallas Mavericks. “She wanted me to focus on what I was doing and not worry. “I don’t think she realized the severity of the situation that she was in.”
