    He's going to be rooting hard tomorrow for a win, I guarantee it. He always masks his fear with jokes, that's how I know he's petrified in real.

    Someone going 3rd person can be very intimidating.

    This is a good ass game.

    We were down 10 in the 3rd. Just went up 7 in the 4th but France cut it to 3.

    6+ minutes left

    Team USA about to lose.

    Shout out to 20 or 30 players who turned down this opportunity

    Based on Wiggy & Cane top 40/50 players list, there were a total of 3 players on team USA from that list.

    These other countries are bringing their top players. We bring a mediocre group.

    Stopped giving the ball to Mitchell in the 4th for some reason, and Walker was horrible
    Gobert was unstoppable in the 4th
    missed like 6 of 7 free throws in the 4th

    76-71 becomes 89-79 as the USA completely craters in the 4th with an 18-3 French run late.

    I am not mad at these dudes. They were just the 3rd tier players as the superstars were too busy to bother.
    Go back to the College Kids (for FIBA at least) if NBA players feel like this tournament is a burden to their lifestyle.

    I totally agree. Sucks that these guys were put in that position.

    Not mad at these dudes at all. Tatum being hurt didn't help but as I said before this group of guys would struggle to make it out of round 1/get HCA for round in the Western Conference this upcoming season

    Our roster was straight trash. Having 4 Celtics on it should have been the giveaway from the beginning.

    Welp.....

    What we knew :

    1. Mitchell is Special

    2. Kemba is a good player. But, he's not a #1

    3. Gobert is a defensive stud



    Things we thought. But, are now confirmed :

    1. Turner is hot buttered garbage

    2. The gap has closed some in international play. We need a few top guys to play in the Olympics.
