Regarding the Fred Nykamp story, it looks like Canada Basketball has nothing on the CSA when it comes to gross incompetence...and I don't mean it as a compliment to CB!
IMO, both organizations are prime examples of where the inmates run the asylum.
The only good that might come out of this is the fact that Nykamp apparently won't get his clammy little hands on the CSA afterall.
