    NBA: The Canadians are coming....

    Steadily over the last 15 years there has been an increase in Canadian players, and in the past 3 season it seem to have like doubled.

    anybody else noticing the trend?

    Scoffs. I wouldn't give Canada any credit for what success they're achieving. Nobody gives a damned about supporting basketball.....its all about hockey. I remember Nash playing internationally for Canada and having to sleep in lousy hotels and pay for some of his lesser off teammates' expenses. No wonder Jamaal couldn't be bothered to ever suit up for Team Canada. Hard to believe no Canadian school offered Nash a scholarship coming outta H.S. I guess that was a blessing in discuss.

    Wiggins wouldn't be Wiggins if he wasn't snapped up by a Prep school and shipped south.

    The Wiggins brothers....Now you have the Ennis brothers.

    Nick Staukas, Tristan Thompson, Anthony Bennett, etc.

    Magloire like you said...Joel Anthony, Todd McCullough, etc. before them.

    The NBA has about 30 players reppin' Canada.

    BS...

    Have you checked where Massachusetts, Michigan, Wisconsin , Illinois, Indiana, New York are all located?

    Detroit and Canada are separated by a River, not much different than Jersey and New York..

    NBA, NFL, MLB are all diverse leagues and the diversity has increased over the last few decades anyway

    NBA has players from all over the world...Eastern European countries, Latin nationis, Africa, a few from Canada shouldn't be a surprise.

    NFL alot has players from Pacific Hemisphere countries from Australia to Tonga(and other Pacific islands,) as well as Germans, Africans, and Canadians. Former rugby players make easy transition.

    MLB is full of latin-Caribbean and increasing Japanese players

    There's a Canadian Basketball league like CFL, but not as much money as CFL

    Ok so we can eliminate this theory lol Or can we ... This does not disprove it .. more research needs to be done . This area is very small compared to the whole map.... Below are warmer climates while above are colder.....

    Do you have another theory ?

    How about not enough brothas to the north .?

    Or a shorter population ?

    The kids in Canada play in the states often. There's alot of minor and rec leagues that span the 2 countries at the borders. This is also starting to happen in football with alot of kids who have family in both countries and get scholarships to prep schools.

    Wiggins brothers father is American from the south(like Drake lol) so these connections play a part.

    Canada only has around 35 million people(2-3% black).

    America has 300+ million(15% black)

    Ok there you go
    The reason is financial incentive
    Not much financial incentive in Canada hence the disproportionate # of basketball players when compared to the USA.

    Its the hockey culture and at the end of the day this country as a whole will forever be content at being great at that and sucking at everything else.

    Can't qualify for a World Cup, while Jamaica n TnT with less resources can,lol

    I remember when the Raptors first joined a lot of American players complained about not being able to find games/highlights on TV. Forget about consistent basketball coverage if you have a basic cable package.

    I just love when I go to the States how refreshing it is to see hockey highlights as almost non existant on ESPN,lol.

    I attribute a lot of these guys going to NCAA D1 schools more to improved international scouting from the U.S than guys getting the level of support they need in Canada.

    Would you believe a month ago, the Maple Leafs hockey team were mired in a slump and lost 6-1 to the worst team in the league, causing some fans to pelt the ice with debris. This was HUGE headline news.

    And meanwhile the Raptors were off to the best start in franchise history and laid a 20 pt beating on LeBrons Cleveland on the road, and barely got a mention on the local sports channel, smh.
