You keep posting the same old bullshit, from one country from one tv station.


It's like only counting NBA finals ratings from one US city.

You are a serious moron.

I looked up the Nigerian team rooster, only 1 player was born in Nigeria, the rest are Nigerian-Americans. What happened to the rule that you can only have one nationalized player? Not that it gives them a competitive advantage, they'll be lucky to win one game, but the team they beat in Afrobasketball to make the Olympics, Angola (an Olympic regular), all it's players are from Angola.

It makes me have more respect for the other weaker teams like Venezuela and China. Yes they too will struggle to win a game but at least all their players are born in their nation.

You do realize KD is an elite passer too right?

He's gonna quickly become your favorite player this year.

The problem in OKC was he had nobody to finish off his great passes.... but now he has two of the best three point shooters in history alongside him. WOOOOOOO!

Don't know about their citizenship rules but I think Nigerian-Americans count as Nigerian citizens so they don't count as naturalized players.

I realize Melo is a veteran International player, but I think the team would be better if DrayGod played with the first unit, and Melo was a first option with the 2nd unit. Melo (at the 4) would be a better fit with DJ as well. Or start DJ and bring Cousins off the bench.

And KD looks unbelievable. I think his jumper is still improving. 7' wing span with infinite range. Best scorer in the World, no doubt.

CP3 / Kyrie / Westbrook
Curry / Harden / Klay
LeBron / Durant
Leonard / Melo
AD / Boogie

Would've been bonkers

The US games are un-watchable.

Should make it like 25 or 23yrs old and under for the US team.
