PostSubject: Best Player in Canada   Sun Feb 08, 2015 7:33 pm

I've watched a lot of basketball in my days, and witnessed a lot of great basketball players come from Canada (BC to be specific) and of all the great players I think Demar DeRozan is the all time greatest player to ever grow up in Canada. He's straight outta Victoria and he makes me proud to be Canadian.

PostSubject: What is Canadian?!   Sat Feb 14, 2015 2:24 pm

Uhm, since when is DeRozan from Victoria? Born in Compton, played high school ball for Compton, played for the McDonalds All-American team, and then went to USC. In no way shape or form is he Canadian at all. Yes, he plays for the Raps in Canada but is not CANADIAN.

You want great Canadian players - obviously Steve Nash (Victoria), Rick Fox (Toronto), as well as the upcoming Wiggins, Bennett, Thompson, and Olynyk. Sorry Sacre, you still have a lot to prove... If you really want to get further in, go watch youtube clips of Henry Bekkering in his prime. Dude's from Taber, Alberta. That dude could ball.

Come on dude, DeRozan makes you feel proud to be Canadian? Might want to re-think that one.

Actually I believe DeRozan is from Compton, Quebec which just happens to be in Canada my man, and about that All-American team he set a record as the first Canadian to make the All-American game. So that just proves that DeMar is in fact Canadian. To add on to last time, I truly believe that he will dominate the NBA and Canadian basketball history.

I can see you're confusion here as he is indeed from Compton, CA. The CA stands for the state of California. Demare was born in August of 1989 in Compton, California, USA. I agree with you about his dominance but will go down as another American basketball player. Sorry to burst your bubble..

Also another great hint to his nationality is the National team he plays for and is on the current roster of. Go check Team USA's roster; Demar is indeed an American.

Lol, when you're wrong, you're wrong. You go do the research and tell me what you find. Big indicator is that team USA roster.

Again, do you're research. Guy is not Canadian. Find me a link that marks him in Quebec and I'll shut up, but there is no chance to a) be on the all american team as a Canadian b) be on team usa as a Canadian.

Are you not proud to be Canadian? Because he is Canadaian and he represents us very well.

Proud Canadian through and through, don't like to tarnish this lovely nationality with our neighbors to the South. Represents the Raps well, that's for sure.

Haha, sorry to ruin your Valentine's day. You can go back to your delusions of his nationality, and cuddle your DeRozan cut out again. "Say it ain't so Demar :'("

Can't post links or pics until a week into being a member so unfortunately not. I can direct you to this amazing search engine called Google where you type in whatever you'd like and you can research it. I implore you to check out team USA's roster for one, you can also try to find a Biography of him, and even though Wikipedia is not a great source, it still has fairly valid info. Give Demar's wiki a browse and tell me what you find! Best of luck!

Demar is pure candian. Did you not see his interview in which he said he prefers poutine over Philly Steak sandwich?
