    Canadian vs. US Big 12 All-Star Game

    If the Big 12 had an all-star game that had the best Canadians vs. the best Americans, who do you think would win?

    Re: Canadian vs. US Big 12 All-Star Game

    Tough call because Canada would have Heslip, Wiggins, and Ejim in their starting line up. The US would have a solid starting 5 (too lazy to figure one out). I say it would be a coin flip.

    Re: Canadian vs. US Big 12 All-Star Game

    I don't know if you have enough Canadians to fill out a roster like you could with the US. But it would be a hell of a three on three game.


    isnt that an Olympic sport in two years?

    Don't forget Naz too. But, yes Big 12 would have more depth.

    Re: Canadian vs. US Big 12 All-Star Game

    What about an all foreign vs. US team if Embiid is healthy?

    Re: Canadian vs. US Big 12 All-Star Game

    Canada would have Ejim, Wiggins, Heslip, Chery, and Naz. The US team for me would be Holmes, Jefferson, Kane, Smart, and Staten.

    Re: Canadian vs. US Big 12 All-Star Game

    The all foreign team would be made up of Embiid, Ejim, Wiggins, Hield, Heslip, Chery, and Long. And they would beat any other combination from the Big 12 if everyone is healthy.

    Re: Canadian vs. US Big 12 All-Star Game

    Heslip would be a liability to the Canadian team. Not much to his game aside from being a shooter and the occasional hair flip.

    You're high if you wouldn't want Heslip on your team.

    No, I'm not a fan of a 45%+ 3 pt shooter that can go for 20 any night.

    Re: Canadian vs. US Big 12 All-Star Game

    I think a "USA vs. International" Big 12 game would be competitive. These are the teams that I'd put together:


    International Team:

    Kenny Chery, Baylor
    Buddy Hield, Oklahoma
    Andrew Wiggins, Kansas
    Melvin Ejim, Iowa State
    Joel Embiid, Kansas
    Bench: Naz Long, Iowa State / Brady Heslip, Baylor

    USA Team:

    Juwan Staten, West Virginia
    Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State
    DeAndre Kane, Iowa State
    Georges Niang, Iowa State
    Jonathan Holmes, Texas
    Bench: Markel Brown, Oklahoma State / Perry Ellis, Kansas

    Dejan Kravic from Texas Tech is from Canada as well. He could add some size off the bench for the Int'l team. If those were the teams then the Int'l team would roll easily. Not sure how much I like a US team with three PGs out there together.
