He has definitely lost some fat/gained muscle.



This post is pretty funny because non Bucks fans in the GB thread about team USA think he got fat and lazy after he got paid :lol:

If you stay fat and lazy, you don't have to get fat and lazy.

Bruno Caboclo would be an all star if he played under Giannis "rules".

Feel like I think about this every FIBA tournament. Understand why it’s not possible but man would a healthy 2019 Yugoslavian National Team be great theatre.

Dragic/Teodosic
Doncic/Bogdan
Bojan/Bjelica/Hezonja
Mirotic/Saric
Jokic/Nurkic/Vucevic

There’d be defensive issues but the offensive creativity and shot making would be a thing to behold.

I've listened to a few podcasts that are struggling to generate content right now, but they are talking about the USA team. I've heard a couple of times about past players really taking a leap forward from being a top 20-40 player to a top 10-15 player, basically maturing and jumping a few tiers. Fingers crossed this happens with Middleton.

Team USA is much better with a healthy Derrick White than an injured Kyle Lowry. Think White will have a huge impact for the squad in China.

Love Derrick White. Again, why is Brogdon not on this squad?

Would imagine it was his decision, whatever the reason. He was apart of the 2016 Select Team and I’d be surprised if he wasn’t invited this year, especially once dudes started dropping off.

Slightly OT, but every national anthem should be replaced by the reggaeton horn blast.

At this point I feel Tim Frazier would pull out of the USA team.

Honestly the pull outs are partly on USA basketball. They like the press of announcing 500 dudes are apart of the “program.” I’d imagine for the next cycle they chill on that a little bit and just post the roster that’ll 100% be in training camp.

I firmly believe we could field a team solely of veteran role player journeymen types that’d have a legit shot to win gold under Pop.

George Hill, Seth Curry, DJ Augustine
Garrett Temple, E’Twaun Moore
Danny Green, Wes Matthews
Anthony Tolliver, Mike Scott, Jared Dudley
Dewayne Dedmon, Ed Davis
