    Yeah, another ACL, I think? Have to think his playing days are behind him if that's the case.

    Anyone else not in the least bit surprised by the recent audio recording of Demarcus Counsins threatening to kill a woman?

    Not surprised, no. But in his defense she wasn't going to let his son attend his wedding? I think any parent would agree one of your biggest fears in life is missing out on time with them, especially important events like a wedding. But I wouldn't recommend threatening to shoot anyone, either.

    Now there’s an arrest warrant out for Boogie. What a shitty couple of years he’s having.

    Team USA just barely beat Turkey in OT (93-92) at the FIBA World Cup.  They were down 92-91 with 6 seconds left.  They probably shouldn't send their C or D roster to Tokyo next year.

    Team USA wins a second round matchup against the Greek freak and his largely underwhelming teammates.

    Kawhi Leonard's sister, along with an accomplice, robbed and murdered an 84 year old woman in a casino bathroom in California.

    US loses to France in the semis. Embarrassing performance. I don’t care who was on the roster.

    No excuse for it. You hit it on the head, embarrassing.

    Annnnd now they lose to Serbia.

    Do we really care about the US team? I’ve never cared one bit outside of the Olympics

    This.  I'd much rather see international competitions with equal playing fields.  Best vs. Best.  Or absolutely zero professionals allowed, and level it across the board.

    This was the reaction a lot of people had to the FIBA tourney before 2004 Athens.  I would prefer to see our country dominate this sport. I hope they don’t send their G team to the Olympics.

    That's my opinion, too. Guys play an 82-game season plus (in many cases) any number of playoff games. Hard to imagine too many of those guys getting up and excited about playing in "Random National Tournament #35398568" or whatever the fuck this one is. Olympics at least has the prestige in its name; this, not so much.

    I’ve never watched a single second of USA outside the Olympics. And we do dominate the sport. Even the French and Croatians know they didn’t just beat Kawhii/LeBron/AD/Durant/etc.

    Agreed. The NBA players don't GAF clearly. It's great for the young guys like Mitchell, Turner, and essentially the entire Celtics starting line-up to get some extra training with a phenomenal coaching staff. But I don't think Mitchell/Walker ever simultaneously had good games except for maybe the first one. Tatum was hurt, the bench consisted of Lopez, Marcus Smart, Derrick White, and one of the Plumlee brothers FFS.
