The #44 has a lot of cabalistic meanings at Trolls' lore...

Mmmh...

I'd like that but it's just a 10-days stuff. NBA spots are the hardest to get in the whole world.
There's a lot of probabilities after these 10 days they say to him: "That's it, boy. Bye and blessings".

Let's see if he's allowed to grab a two-way, at least.

By no means a bad player: Smart and skilled.

Seems official: No Soenix players selected for USA NAtional Team so only two Nomads to be seen at China World Cup:

Image
Red Beard will probably be starter for the Boomers though Bogut has some options.
Australia is a possible contender. It's not just the NBA talent they summon: they get its own personality as a team.
They are physical, defend hard and they are capable to play at different paces.
Not so slow as you might think looking the roster; they can run when they think they must.

A lot will depend on Ol'Man Ingles: if he nails 3s, Australia will thrieve, if not, they can't win another contenders.
At the end, they put a rough fight no matter what.


Image
TheGoldenBoy will lead Spanish options to win the tournament alongside Marc Gasol.
I'm not expecting Pau matching in China the impact he has been making at the whole FIBA basketball he played during his career.
I think a point could be made on him being a stronger weapon as 6th man than as starter.
It won't happen.

RR has been the starting Spanish PG from long ago but there were other fine PGs (Chacho, Calderón and even a combo as Llull) deserving meaningful time at court.

Now I foresee him being the Spanish player with more minutes, benched only to rest.



I dare to make an educated requirement to Phoenix Suns fanbase:

Please, don't you take the World Cup as a valid sample to predict Aron and GoldenBoy's 3p% future performances in Arizona.
It's not, wether good or bad.

But you can take it to shape your appreciation of what kind of defense they play, how they manage running different systems (is unlikely Monty gonna play similar to any Aussie and Spanish teams) and the way they deal with pressure when things get tough and hot.

I wouldn't either, since Pau is out due to his foot injury. :P

Only two polite corrections?

I'm disappointed; it's a blatant mistake and deserves more trolling than that.

Addendo: I need to figure out an English translation for my #NoDoyUna hashtag... #IKnowNothing, maybe?

I agree with him: USA still favourite to win but not a carved at stone thing.
American roster is good but not great.

Serbia, Spain, France and even Australia ha some legit options.

I'm personally interested on Japan and Senegal.
Though they get no actual chances they are entertaining teams to watch. All eyes on Hachimura but I like Grizzlies' two-way Watanabe the more.



I'm praying hard for the africans be nuts enough to conoct some weird lineup with the Twin Fall Towers plus Gorgui playing SF.
Giantball!

World Cup starts Aug 31th, Jon Snow.

España played yesterday a first friendly match against Lietuvo.
The Golden Boy was the best at court. He didn't play many minutes tho. No need to overload him at this stage.

BREAKING NEWS!

Ricky leaves the camp and announces his retirement from National Team.

Link to original source with the whole story


Don't you blame me... I was shocked too when I first read that at Spanish Forum. Sunara is a highly respected user with a vast knowledge of international FIBA.

I just wanted you to share that feeling.

Without thinking about time lag (7 hours difference with US), yesterday was Team Phoenix Suns Day (or somewhat) at https://www.nba.com/nbatv.
I just got me an Instagram and I saw this there. I just use laptop for Internet, so I had not an account 'til now.

Still figuring out how the hell the whole thing works. It seems possible to display Insta photos and videos in this Forum, at least.




I'm el_hespiritu there, in case some of you use that platform (I tried el.hespiritu but I probably did something wrong and I'm now unabled to acces) but as from now I can only post videos from the laptop and I just posted anime music.

Read on Twitter

Okobo replaces Heurtel into the National Team.

Final roster is yet to be adressed, but he gets now some chance to play the World Cup.

As from now, RR and Baynes are the only Phuns confirmed to play in China.

Now playing 3rd Quarter friendly Spain - Ivory Coast.
No matter the box-score (Spain is winning and The Golden Boy is top scorer so far).

This has been a fine 2+1 nonetheless
