    Undersized team in the middle but loaded with firepower and talent. They're still the team to beat but they may run into some real problems against teams like Serbia especially if Jokic is playing.

    Luckily for them Serbia failed to qualify, nasulot ng Italy. This highlights the dearth of American centers, parang lahat ng top C puro international like Jokic, Embiid, KAT, Vucevic, Valanciunas, Gobert, Ayton, Capela, Nurkic, etc but they don't have to face any of them except perhaps Gobert. They could have used Brook Lopez or Myles Turner instead of token white guy Kevin Love.

    Parang weird move din yung may Holiday, Middleton at Booker pa na still playing in the finals. Either they're really high on adrenaline or too banged up to make an impact. Takaw sulot pa din talaga mga All-Star team against teams who have played together for long as a unit.

    Baka mas ok pa nga si Jarrett Allen nilagay diyan than Kevin Love. Brook Lopez is more suited sana in international game but it would be a stretch for Milwaukee to lend all three.

    maybe Jarrett Allen is playing it safe since he's a free agent and about to get paid

    yeah, it totally slipped from my mind that Serbia got bounced at home. 

    I see KD playing some time at 4, where he's totally going to be a matchup nightmare.

    USA lost to Nigeria 87-90 in their first exhibition game. Not a good sign but if one thing is going for them, better to lose now before the tournament proper so they can iron their kinks

    i was able to catch part of the game. The US team needs be a better defensive unit. Pinagpiyestahan sila ng Nigeria from outside. in the end it was only KD who was keeping them alive.

    USA lost to Australia today,  91-83. I say only USA cause this ain't a team, yet...

    Ayan na nga, hindi na uubra yung shotgun practices talaga. USA Basketball should know better.

    The recent USA losses in the pre-Olympics tournament (to Nigeria and Australia), combined with their last performance in the FIBA World Cup 2019, made me start to doubt the "great" Greg Popovic. USA has not done well since he took over Coach K.

    Coach K: 75-1

    Pop: 9-5

    USA finally gets a win, 108-80 against Argentina

    Bradley Beal out of Team USA due to covid protocols, bummer for him
  • CaptainCharismaCaptainCharisma Moderator PEx Moderator
    Beal and Kevin Love out. Keldon Johnson and Javale McGee in :lol: 
  • westhavenwesthaven Jedi apprentice PEx Expert 🎖️
    Tingin ko magbabackout pa yung tatlo na nasa Finals whatever the result is. This has been a compressed season and I think those two teams are the least when it comes to load management.
  • CaptainCharismaCaptainCharisma Moderator PEx Moderator
    Zach Lavine out due to covid protocols. This roster is in tatters, then there’s the 3 finalists who have yet to play with this depleted roster.

    Awkward :lol:
