What with USA not changing their numbers 1-15?

Faried starred big in 2014, what has he done in the NBA? Melo has had success for USA. No finals appearances, flamed out.

Tatum, etc can steal FIBA light & minutes. They weren't 2 games away from the finals. Their seasons ended earlier.

Khris & Brook are doing fine.

Khris and Brook at the MCG right now with team USA for the essendon - collingwood game. Brian Taylor got the interview with Brook. Pop wanted none of him.

I strongly, strongly dislike Brian Taylor.

Looks like USA is playing Australia for the second time on NBATV.

US attacking in the midrange again. Makes sense with Pop and Kerr on the coaching staff.

Not good from Middleton or Lopez in the first half.

I think Middleton would be a better fit on the Boomers. Suit playing with us better.

Congrats to the Boomers!

Team USA Bucks have been pretty discouraging so far. If Kemba or Mitchell goes down this team isn’t winning gold.

Bogey looks really good in these FIBA games. Him and Patty killed it.

And Midds looks like he’s on holiday. Did not give two **** out there in both games. Let’s hope he’s not gonna do a Salmons on us.

How so?

I didn't watch it, but a couple buds did. They tweeted Mids looked good. They said he played well within the team, his 3 pointers just didn't drop... The caveat is my friends are drunk of course, so who knows what they were looking at.

What’s the point of having Marcus Smart on the team if he isn’t there to put the clamps on a Patty Mills? This dude is a captain of the team…

He did miss open shots but also had a lazy careless turnover in the backcourt and from what I saw a couple of defensive mistakes when guarding Ingles.

Brook looked nervous/sped up when he played and just seems sorta lost on the court with this team.

Wow i didnt realize until now how "bad" the USA roster is.I can easily see them losing a knockout game and failing to get a medal.

Our actual management posted a lineup with the starting 2 guard being Tony Snell.
