    Default Team USA and the degradation of real basketball skills is an EMBARRASSMENT...

    When are we going to stop elevating athletes and start elevating basketball players with actual skills?

    Such an embarrassment.

    Speaks volumes about the degradation of American society.

    Sick of it.

    It's all about ego's and narratives, and shortcutting and superteams now....

    Not about winning. In that regard Kawhi is a lost species.

    At least for team USA I would have thought playing with the best of the best of the NBA would be enticing and at the very least a positive learning experience to further develop.
    Fans in Australia were expecting to see the likes of Harden, Lowrey, Davis, CJ and Simmons, and that's how it was advertised. Instead we got Lopez, Plumlee and White.
    Maybe FIBA needs to work with the NBA and other world leagues more to schedule the competition so the big names will play.

    While I agree with the sentiment it's basically impossible to take this seriously from someone as ignorant about basketball as OP is.

    I knew this team was going to be trash ...

    Esp when D Mitchell and Kemba are your best players, but they’re in play as the worst Team USA possibly ever. At least since pros were participating.

    Yes inferior to 2004 and 2002.

    Absolutely pathetic that they already have a loss on their record and breaking that long ass winning streak.

    He isn't wrong, though. That the best players on the team are Kemba Walker and Donovan Mitchell is pathetic. The team doesn't even have a single top 20 american player.
