McKechnie hopes Raptors will hold future camps there as well.

Raptors will announce more details about training camp shortly. Part of it will be at Alex McKechnie's fancy new facility in Burnaby

Nash, Triano, Nicholson and Carl English react to talk that Canadian athletes “don’t want it enough” torontosun.com/2014/07/22/can…

"But Apple struggled (...) sell iPads, with unit sales falling 9.2% after a 16% drop three months earlier." ow.ly/ztmib

Ryan Wolstat

“… and if that is the only thing you have to teach him, you have an easy job … I just think that's a bogus statement," CarlEnglish said.

Ryan Wolstat

"I think Wiggins gets put out because he's not always super aggressive, but the kid is extremely talented ...

Ryan Wolstat

Morey, Presti, Hennigan, McDonough in NBA since 2007, now Dubas, 28, gets plum NHL job with Maple Leafs.

Ryan Wolstat

Seven years later, NHL starts to catch up to NBA with hiring of young Dubas in Toronto: torontosun.com/2014/07/22/map…

Ryan Wolstat

If this goes down, does everyone have to immediately halt all current and future Flip and Babcock jokes?

Ryan Wolstat

As if that proposed Love deal isn’t enough of a heist for Wolves, they’d also unload bad contracts? Baffling.

Eric Koreen

My story on the leafs hiring @kyledubas, and the various people that will have to adapt. ww2.nationalpost.com/m/wp/blog.html…

Ryan Wolstat

Should be noted that English and Estudiantes might not have parted on best of terms, hence Bebe comment.

Ryan Wolstat

"I felt (Estudiantes) didn't put in enough time with him and I feel if he gets with the right coaches and staff here, he has a good upside."

Ryan Wolstat

Carl English played with Bebe Nogueira at Estudiantes. Said offence needs work, "but from a defensive standpoint, he can be very good."

Ryan Wolstat

"Maybe we're picking on the young players before they've had a chance. We've been through a Summer League and they're young.” Triano

Ryan Wolstat

Triano also said Canada’s depth will help get NBA teams on board. Won’t be wearing out their guys. Lots of minutes spread around.

Ryan Wolstat

Triano said long-term, Canada will use depth and athleticism to play high pressure defence and rotate lots of guys. Stay fresh/aggressive

Ryan Wolstat

Andrew Nicholson said he is “going back to basics” trying to get back to solid rookie form. More time in post, etc. Magic deep up front now

Eric Koreen

It should be noted that the best Canadian song of all time is actually the CBC Olympic theme song.

Josh Lewenberg

Lay back and have a listen, Canadians RT @TSN1050Radio @WhitlockJason will join us at 5:02PM EST: tsn.ca/toronto/listen

Ryan Wolstat

Not Donaghy bad, but why give Whitlock radio time here?

Eric Koreen

And I love that @hockeyesque stood up for Nautical Disaster, SO CLEARLY the best Tragically Hip song.

Eric Koreen

The CBC's 100-best Canadian songs list is debatable, but the endorsements are almost all must-reads: music.cbc.ca/#/blogs/2014/6…

Michael Grange

Shanahan: “I believe we have people in our organization who maybe have been afraid of certain words & certain information." Ah, Leafs.

Eric Koreen

What has a better ring: The Kyle Dubas Era or The David Booth Era?

Michael Grange

My April column on Shanahan's hiring seems to have held up pretty well, all things considered: sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/sha…

Patrick Patterson

"Bend over make your knees touch your elbows".. Wouldn't it b easier for her to make her elbows touch her knees? @LilJon

Patrick Patterson

Beautiful weather brings out the women.. #breakingmyneck

Michael Grange

With Andrew Wiggins & Anthony Bennett both targets in possible Kevin Love deal; no surprise they aren't w Canadian national team summer

Ryan Wolstat

What makes sense in all of this is Wolves leaking that offer to try to get Klay/other big bids for Love. Nothing else does to me.

Ryan Wolstat

It’s like James Dolan took over the Cavs and decided he had to have something. I really don’t get it.

Ryan Wolstat

I must be missing something. Who are Cavs bidding against, why is offer so huge? No Klay from Dubs vs. 2 great defenders from Bulls?

Ryan Wolstat

We’ll know sometime this week site of FIBA Americas Oly qualifying next year. Mexico strong favourite for men, Edmonton for women.

Eric Koreen

Like me, Kyle Dubas grew up a Mariners fan because of Ken Griffey. #TheKid

Ryan Wolstat

Which leads me to believe that is not actually an offer on table. It doesn’t just trump the rival offers, it might be triple the value

Ryan Wolstat

I don’t believe Wolves are ones holding up a Wiggins deal if offer really is Bennett and at least one future No. 1 for guy that is bailing?

Josh Lewenberg

In doing so they've dedicated themselves to basketball in a way most American players don't have to at that age. If thats not motivation...

Josh Lewenberg

Fact Whitlock may be overlooking: most Canadian players leave their families/friends/lives/country as teenagers to attend prep schools in US

Eric Koreen

Dubas said he hasn't talked with Randy Carlyle yet. Take that for what it's worth. I don't know if it means anything.

Eric Koreen

"People, they can’t really say what that truly means, other than one team’s winning and one team’s losing.” - Dubas on culture change

Eric Koreen

Meanwhile, new Leafs AGM Kyle Dubas told us something I've been dying to here re: culture change...

Josh Lewenberg

Straight from the Whitlock playbook: preface your baseless comments with "NBA people believe" and you can say whatever you want

Doug Smith

Does anyone really truly give a rat's ass what Jason Whitlock thinks of Canada. Biggest. Yawn. Ever.

Ryan Wolstat

Successfully bailed from the ACC before the hockey takeover

Eric Koreen

".... But when the game is on the line, I never see him turn away. I always see him turn it up.” 2/2

Eric Koreen

More Nash on AW: "Yeah, there are times where we’d all like to see him show a little bit more alpha male…." 1/2

Eric Koreen

Nash on Wiggins: "His athleticism isn’t in question. They’re worrying about his motivation and desire. It’s good for him. He’ll overcome it.

Ryan Wolstat

Carl English also dismissed the negative talk about Canadians, and Wiggins in particular.

Eric Koreen

Steve Nash on Whitlock: "it's a wonderful sweeping generalization."

Ryan Wolstat

Triano dismisses Canadian softness talk. Mentions Nash, Thompson, Sacre. Says, "maybe we'll have to drop the gloves a bit on trip."

Anthony Bennett and Tyler Ennis in the house at canada basketball practice today. Not heading to Europe with team.

Ryan Wolstat

Andrew Nicholson on Whitlock's comments: "I don't agree with that at all. If we didn't have the will, we wouldn't be here."

Ryan Wolstat

Tyler Ennis and Anthony Bennett are indeed in building. Not working out though, just putting in an appearance

sportsnet.ca/590/brady-and-… - Dave poulin, now EX asst GM of the #leafs, on @fan590 earlier today w/ @FAN590Walker & yours truly. #mapleleafs

Ryan Wolstat

NHL continues to catch up to things NBA has been doing recently (or since Morey, really). Hiring extremely young, promising execs

Eric Koreen

The Leafs appear to be more or less as on top of the concept of timing as the Sacramento Kings.

Eric Koreen

The new Leafs assistant GM is good. He twice retweeted my stories. That's how I know.

Eric Koreen

Anyway, "consider the source" remains if not the golden rule, the bronze rule of journalism/life.

Eric Koreen

I simply refuse to believe Jason Whitlock said something lazy and unfounded about a large group of people.

Dwight Buycks

“Goal in 2016 is to be top 10 team and I'm not afraid to say (in 2020) I'll be very disappointed if these guys aren't a medal team” English

I'm cheering for the Rockets. "Lose the summer, win the summer league" is a pretty good slogan.

Eric Koreen

I asked a Raptors executive who he had tonight in the LVSL — Houston or Sacramento. There was laughter.

Ryan Wolstat

Carl English tells us today that he's not dead yet. Intends to be part of team that makes noise next year.
