Great day of golf at Westmount in KW. Great company. TERRIBLE round though. My worst in 3+ years. Could be the 3 hrs of sleep I'm going on
Ranking of highest amount of absurd pre-season optimism, by sport: 1. baseball; 2. football; 3. hockey; 4. basketball
All words beginning with caps in headlines is a subtle form of tyranny.
“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.
I asked a Raptors executive who he had tonight in the LVSL — Houston or Sacramento. There was laughter.
Toronto Blue Jays' closers for now and the future have included Randy Myers, Miguel Batista, B.J. Ryan and Sergio Santos.
The Sergio Santos Era sure was scintillating.
Everything is embarrassing. How 'bout that for a hot take?
Still a chance Tyler Ennis attends Canadian camp if insurance can be worked out. Melvin Ejim there today

Carl English said he'd be disappointed of Canadian group on the way isn't contending for medals when he is no longer part of program.
Carl English tells us today that he's not dead yet. Intends to be part of team that makes noise next year.

How is everyone's summer been going so far ?? What have you done where have you been? Let me know.
Hello Young World!!
The last episode of Enlisted was amazing, btw, if you want a hot take on a month-old episode of a long-cancelled show.
Agh. Hudak, not Hudek. Way to go, self.
Watching old episodes of Enlisted. Tim Hudek looks still so hopeful in his commercials.
Most cliches are amazing, it should be noted. It's why they're cliches.
What is the best cliche? Like, which cliche is so profound that we should keep saying it despite it being a cliche?
I have changed my Twitter cover photo to the greatest photo I've ever taken.
It means he's going to start the season by playing no defence, then he's going to be great, then he's going to stop scoring. Duh.
Andrew Wiggins at summer league, wearing a Toronto Blue Jays hat. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Odrisamer Despaigne just lost a no-hitter after 7.2 innings. That's a Despaigne in the ass.
I'll be back to writing about things again tomorrow — at least theoretically.
Damn... I miss Toronto.
Ejim, Powell, Bachynsk, Heslip, Phil and Thomas Scrubb return from the Canadian developmental team that did so well in China last summer.
Canada will play 11 friendlies in 4 countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Spain) incl. 6 games in a row in 3 countries. Will platoon players
"We have to build a winning culture here, this is a new project … As far as developing a national team, these are just the first steps."
Nash says primary obligation for players is to their teams. But says Wiggins/Cavs have shown interest “there’s a chance he could be here."
"Everyone's shown interest in being here, but for various reasons, it's not that simple.” Nash, before adding there’s a chance Wiggins shows
Me to Nash: “I’m sure you took in Summer League, what was it like …” Nash: "I actually did not see Summer League (laughs), sorry."
Triano lauded Tony McIntyre and Mike George and Ro Russell for developing players and getting them exposure and talked of other coaches.
Triano said next is Canadian coaches getting props. Happy to see Roy Rana doing stuff with Utah/Raptors, Scott Morrison with D-League etc.
Triano is hoping this tour helps several players get jobs or better jobs overseas. Also sees NBA players developing through it
Always going to be difficult to get the star NCAA incoming freshmen and NBA rookies to play. That goes for all countries.
“So, you're going to be good enough to play in the NBA, but you might not be able to play for our Canadian national team."
"There's going to be a day when I'm going to have to cut an NBA player from the national team” Triano said compared to when had to beg for 2
"We're still very, very infant in who we are as a basketball nation, but that's going to change over the next 2, 4, 6, 8 years.” Jay Triano
Joel Anthony was told to take summer off so young kids could get crucial international experience.
As expected, doesn't look like the first rounders will be on this trip for Canada But Nash said good relationship with Cavs going forward
Melvin Ejim and Jordan Bachynski will also be joining Canada for tour following Summer League

Much thanks to my English teacher Katie. Made me improve every day.
Thanks teammates, coaches, Raptors' staff and the fans for the support. It was a good ice breaking to start NBA journey
Leaving Las Vegas. Great experience, increadible week. Not much fan of casinos though.
