This USA team is out of whack and looks poorly put together. Pop in love with small ball just like Spo. What got in these coaches?

My guys <3

Low key would love both Mills and Ingles in Miami. They’re ballers. Plus Iggie’s face would be priceless.

Looks like KZ knocked a couple triples today too. If he can defend at a high level and find his stroke, he may actually be able to carve out a rotation role.

3 exhibition losses foe Team USA from 1992-2020. 2 in the last 3 days.

Popovich doesn’t look like the right coach for the job and it honestly looks like Bam might have been better off staying home this summer and working on his game.

Pop looks like he can care less and has zero pride. Pathetic

They lack pride too. One thing I really like that Coach K did is he instilled the pride of representing your country. These guys look too casual. Got punked by Nigeria, lost again to Australia and nobody looks pissed off.

Huge win for my Boomers. This is a TEAM, in every sense of the word. Mills is always a saiyan in the green and gold.

I think the light will click for team USA. Nobody wants to be the team that bombed the Olympics. They messed up going too star studded without the hustle guys but if these prima donnas start hustling that could carryover into their NBA careers which is a good thing. Then again locked in Olympic Carmelo never stepped foot in the NBA so maybe not.

I blame a certain realgm mod for rigging this game against team usa. The game was settled. The outcome was obvious. And then the mod intervened.
