Nik Stauskas is spending his offseason endearing himself to the good people of Canada.
Sauce Castillo took the reins at a local news station to masquerade as a meteorologist for a day. Even though Sauce is making a new home in Philadelphia as a newly acquired Sixer, he still finds time to travel back to his native homeland of Canada to have a good time. Both the funniest and most tragic sequence in the entire video is the meteorologist admitting that he shrunk two inches between ninth and 10th grade, while good ole’ Sauce Castillo shot up from 5’9 to 6’6. It’s also odd to watch a weather forecast formatted in celsius. Those pesky Canadians and their metric system.
Stauskas is but one of the numerous young Canadian players in the league. The talent from across the border is slowly starting to seep into the NBA, especially with Andrew Wiggins leading the way. Unfortunately, the other Canadian No. 1 pick, Anthony Bennett, hasn’t quite found his footing in the NBA. After being bought out by the Minnesota Timberwolves, Bennett could possibly team up with Stauskas in Philadelphia. The Sixers have talented big men in Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor, but they don’t have a permanent mainstay at the power forward position.
If Bennett can finally work himself into NBA shape, he could get the minutes he yearns for as a member of the Sixers. Also, he could team up with Sauce Castillo to make a very entertaining meteorology duo.
