Fournier leads all scorer by 26 points with 10 rebounds.


Frank is the 4th guard behind:

Fournier (30 min), Albicy (27 min) and De Colo (18 min). If Tony Parker were playing, he wouldn't be in the rotation. If he shows nothing this tournament, it's time to close the book on Frank.

P.S - I have been one of his biggest supporters. The results just aren't there to justify confidence.

Competition could be like 6-8 games over 14 days, so rotation of roster is expected.

I’m impressed Balkman is still active. It seemed like he was last in nba ages ago.

I remember when he came back to the Knicks. I was happy about that. He was a great garbage time player.
I dunno.

Solid game by France against a poor Jordan opposition.

Frank started this time and had a very good game, nearly perfect in all aspects.

Rui is going to be nice for the Wiz this year. Major challenger for rookie of the year.

Agree, he is pretty versatile and may play both forwards position.

Today's spotlight should be Italy vs Serbia, while Gallinari scores 26 points, Serbia is too much for them and win by 15 points while Bogdanovic leads all scorers by 31.

This is what happens when you fill the team with too many Celtics players, embarrassment, should have called up Mitch Randle Morris
