Fading patriotism, faith, and morals among the younger generations will make this worse. The socialist/Communist agenda perpetuated by anti americans like AOC, Omar, and Talib, pretending everything that they don't agree with is racism doesn't help and neither does that ideology being pushed by colleges. Its going to get much worse before it gets better. France earned that win and it just goes to show that the US team didnt have their heart in it. Just going through the motions.

I hate the Celtics as much as you do for losing this championship on behalf of the United States. But sheesh, thats taking what the Celtics did to another level.

The team was arguably better than the Houston Rockets have been over the last few years. It was still a far superior USA team compared to any other team in the competition.



I doubt this USA team would make playoffs in the West. Maybe in the East as 7-8 seed.


So basically the Celtics can’t make the playoffs in the West?

France played like a team. US played like a group of guys who were not on the same page. Even when it was still tied I was sure France was going to win. Gratz to their fans.

The current USA Basketball system was supposed to prevent this from happening again. It failed again in the same way as it did in the early 2000’s. The good players once again showed no commitment to the program. I hope that the stars that refused to play on this team are not allowed on the 2020 Olympic team.

As for the players on this team, they may not have won but at least they showed up.

Other countries give a **** about their country, so they sacrifice and play hard for the win.


US might've played hard, but sacrificing is different. Players from other countries play differently because they're in it for the country and pride.

US players couldn't care less

Some basketball players from France score more points within an alloted time than basketball players from the U.S., and it's AOC's fault. Did she suit up?

Did the American players lose because somehow the French players were more patriotic than American players?

This is quite possibly the most moronic thing I've ever read on this forum. You're delusional.

If any one of the “stars” that walked away from this incarnation of the team elect to play in 2020, there will be no hesitation to roster them.

It will be overlooked that they walked and they will be branded as hero’s should we return to winning.

Out of curiosity, do you consider Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Dwight D Eisenhower as communists? Because those women are simply echoing a return to the policies of the New Deal.

Lets see how things play out this year... Agree that Capella had monster games vs Rudy, but in the right system he clearly has a lot to offer

FDR was a socialist, and after claiming in his first campaign that his predecessor interfered too much with the markets--essentially promising he would do the opposite of what the New Deal became--he then reneged on his campaign promises and implemented countless failed policies that further ruined the economy and turned what should have been a temporary downturn into the worst economic disaster in U.S. history. His infrastructure projects were very valuable though, and the U.S. has relied heavily on that infrastructure through most of the years since. The only policies of the New Deal that made any sense were those that emphasized infrastructure projects. Such projects should be emphasized during the good times though, not during the worst of times. Unfortunately, that's not how people get things done. They wait for disaster. Maybe AOC will be old enough to be elected president when the next disaster hits, and she will help it get worse, and eventually a generation raised on hardship will emerge and bring everything back out of the mire. And the spoiled brats that dominate our recent generations will be all but extinct.

Yes, dumbasses like him do consider centrist public servants like the ones you name as communists. That’s why he’s a dumbass and an idiot. Never underestimate how reactionary and out of touch Birchers like this guy and the one above really are.

Ignoring the fact that you could not properly identify a socialist even if they smacked you in a face with a copy of the Communist Manifesto, even our heavily propagandised history teachers would laugh you out of the room for this ahistorical nonsense.
