I just don't see Giannis ever becoming the next great guy. I think we have to look at the next generation.

If Heurtel was in the roster, i think Collet would still have taken Frank over Albicy for his D and his potential offensively (whatever ppl say)

Another good game by Frank on both ends of the floor against the Dominican team that beat Germany.

I have watched this game in Shenzhen and may share some pics later with recap, but right now it is really late in Hong Kong time, have to do it by tomorrow.

I almost took Spain -3 on that one, but I decided to keep my roll ready for the NFL opening weekend instead.

Tonight (Asian time) to watch

France vs Lithuania
US vs Greece

Lithuania have to win to stay alive, while since Brazil lost to Czech, even if Greece lost this game they can still aim at beating Czech to advance (with the help by US beating Brazil).

Is it on TV or do I have to go through the muck of signing up to a streaming site?

I volunteered to work overtime this morning like an idiot so if someone could give me the rundown or post some highlights after the game it would be greatly appreciated

Why hasn’t FIBA and the NBA-TV or some other network teamed up to broadcast this tournament live on TV?

I don’t know man. Sometimes I wonder if any of this is worth it. :lol: Working myself to death.

Anyway Frank 0 pts and 3 fouls in 8 minutes, looks like I didn’t miss much but him making low iq fouls taking himself out of the game like he frequently did in his few opportunities in the knicks

The game is on ESPN+, and I don't subscribe. But there are live updates on this site:

Donovan Mitchell sure loves to chuck up shots

Ntilikina was a no-show. Not surprising since he was playing against decent talent. Very underwhelming.

He’s good but overrated. Dude loves to play hero ball. And man he’s been a turnover machine lately
