we truly put our best out there, I don't think a single player on this team would make that roster.





australia and serbia played without their best guy.
Serbia is also out at round of 8.
Australia playing now for right to get to semis.

This loss will help
recruiting for olympics.
Steph and klay will reunite with k.d.

France was better from 3.
Curry and klay and k.d. can address that.

I disagree on this. Basketball truly is a world sport, with talent all over. What hurts is our best players choose not to play, and other country's players can't wait to play for theirs.

Serbia played with all of their best guys from what I can see. Who didn’t suit up for Serbia?

This was an interesting tournament because you could easily argue that of the top 5 players in the tournament, only one was an American.

I care, I had money on the game. Didn't think we would lose in basketball to a bunch of French on 9 11 even if it was our z team. Of course had I realized who the the faggy coaches were I would have known better

Maybe if Pop spent more time having the team practice instead of doing social justice outreach and taking gender awareness classes they’d be better.

Nah. Everybody knew they were going to lose, knew why they were going to lose, and nobody in America really cares about this. If they lose in the Olympics then we'll need excuses.

Well considering that they sent top national players and making it a priority. I mean the US media hardly mentions it. As I said earlier in month this is the bigger tournament by the way FIBA runs it and how FIBA wants it.

The Olympics is bigger for US but not rest of the world.
