I thought Spain was going to struggle but they have been great. Rubio really has become the leader of the team which is cool to see. I remember when he was getting benched at times. He has paid the dues and earned the respect. Marc Gasol has also been wonderful, dominating out there.
Some more NBA guys showed up for the international tams that I thought. Pretty crazy that Jokic is out there balling. Also Bae Elite has been doing his thing.
I heard Gorgui got cut from Senegal? that's crazy if true because last world cup, he was by far and way their best player, just doing everything on the floor. How could he not make the team? Has he fallen off that bad or did he just want to leave or what?
I still believe that if a handful of Canadian players showed up, they could have gotten a top 3 finish. If they had say, Thompson, Clarke, Murray, Wiggins, SGA, they could have done some big damage.
When luck shuts the door skill comes in through the window.
