The system appealed to Anderson, who said he didn’t get enough open looks in New Orleans, something that someone with his skill set would need to succeed in Houston. Also, when defenses attack Harden, his ability to make clear passes should help someone like Gordon, who can shoot from the outside and create opportunities off the dribble. “I got a little bit of Nash in me,” Harden said later of the Rockets’ sales pitch. “He had his own pace to the game; that’s what I took out of that. You could never speed him up, you could never make him do anything he didn’t want to do, that’s what separated him from any other point guard at the time, which led to two MVPs.”

The first day, though, was not easy. At his introductory press conference, Durant sat stiffly atop the dais, bracing for the inevitable queries about shortcuts to titles. When Kerr suggested he might bring his shiny new acquisition off the bench, everybody laughed except Durant, causing the coach to clarify. “I’m joking,” he said. Eventually, Durant warmed up. “We live in this superhero comic book world,” he said, “where you’re either a villain or you’re a superhero…I trusted my gut. I trusted my instincts. It’s the unpopular decision. But I can live with it.” From the Philippines, where Canada participated in an Olympic qualifying tournament, Nash downplayed his friend’s quest for NBA gold. “I think it was as much a personal move for his happiness and development as it was to win,” Nash told reporters.

The 26th-ranked Canadians must win the July 5-10 tournament in Manila where they face eighth-ranked Turkey and No. 31 Senegal in Group A action. Fifth-ranked France, New Zealand (21), and the host Philippines (28) make up Group B. Canadian general manager Steve Nash said while their opponents face some similar challenges, such as absent players, their opponents have also had the luxury of playing together for much longer. “Very few people in this room that are participating have played together for a substantial amount of time. That’s a challenge for us … we are a very young program,” Nash said.
