Hope Bam puts some superstar moves into his computer brain and comes back like prime KG.

Sounds like Simmons is going to skip playing for Australia. Disappointing. I get that the dude is shot mentally right now, but perhaps playing well on the Olympic stage could flip the script for him?

Atleast we still have Mills and Ingles to troll Iggie.

This team is also about rookie contract players who may be future players. But the egos have to be small enough that they don’t see themselves as deserving of a Team USA spot

So excited for this opportunity for Bam. Winning a potential gold as the starting center should give him his mojo back.

Lillard/Jrue
Beal/Book/Lavine
Tatum/Middleton
Durant/Dray/Grant
Bam/Love

I see Love getting limited time and us seeing some small ball lineups with a Dray-Durant front court when Bam takes breaks

I wonder if Pop will let Bam handle and do dribble handoffs. As a coach who coached 2 great bigs I hope he inspired Bam to embrace playing big.

unless we trade up for Barrett or trade down for PJ Washington
