Found August 30, 2012 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Celtics rookie forward, Kris Joseph, was one of 30 players who recently participated in Team Canada's five-day training camp at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Canada, which did not qualify for this year's Olympic Games in London, has a new general manager in new Laker point guard and 2-time MVP, Steve Nash.

Along with the Celtics' Joseph, players who attended the Steve Nash led camp included Robert Sacre of the LA LAkers, Tristan Thompson from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Andrew Nicholson of the Orlando Magic, who impressed in Summer League, and Cory Joseph of the San Antonio Spurs.
Kris Joseph impressed many Celtics fans in the Celtics Summer League games and was featured prominently in the above video. He had this to say about the camp:
"You could just feel the passion. Everyone was engaged. Everyone in that room, we all felt that we have the talent is this room to compete for some medals down the road."
