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.
How come you finish 5th-8th when you're so superior ?
That was a well deserved win for France.
I won't blame team USA, at least those players dared to show up while the «stars» are resting and don't even care about what should be an honour, I mean wearing your country's jersey.
Xoxo from France
Well, to be fair, this is the first US loss in 59 games. That's a pretty good showing. Everyone has got to lose sometime. Clearly France had the best player and continuity on their side.
As you said, I put this loss on all the US players that failed to show up rather than on the players that did. But also, France earned it... They played great!
Congrats from the US. Good luck in the rest of the tournament!!!
