Well considering that they sent top national players and making it a priority.

Do other countries not send their top players to the Olympics?

You do also

Just because you think FIBA is only USA Basketball

The bigger basketball tournament for the world is the World Cup not Olympics. I’ll give you for America the Olympics is bigger. But not rest of the world.

I actually like when Team USA loses in one of the fake international competitions with a B squad of players. That sometimes wakes up the other guys and makes them go over for the Olympics so we average 32.5 ppg margin of victory

FIBA and Olympics are night and day from the style the NBA plays
It's why Coach K and Boeheim were a part of the coaching staff in the past because they know how to play zone and coach against zone and all the schemes international competition brings in these events.


Or 99% of it was because they had Lebron, Kobe, KD, CP3, Westbrook, Harden, AD, Boogie, Dwight Howard and the rest of the best players in the league at the top of their games over the years.

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.


FIBA is trying to make the World Cup bigger than the Olympics and as big as soccer. FIBA world cup still ranks fourth in importance behind the NBA, Eurobasket. And the Olympics. FIBA has played hard ball with Eurobasket and the NBA, by not working with those league's schedules (having qualifiers in season) at the expense of not having the best players commit. FIBA truly thinks it is a more important organization than the NBA and Eurobasket

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


You bet on a game where you didn't know the head coach?

Why is Ben Simmons not playing?




apparently actually working on his jumper.

Looks good.
Mid range.

Nothing long but its a big improvement.

Some of their guys have resented him for "being too American" going back to his decision to leave for Monteverde. Ben's stood their national team up in Rio and for this World Cup.

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


I thought the story line going in was the best refused to play for the USA.
