    Damn team losing to a G league squad...
    Me too. But, who knows, MAYBE Pop took a dive? (Let the rest of the World think they're not that good?)

    Sucks that the Best players don't want to play in the WC. They prefer the Olympics.
    Olympics is where it's at.  It's not like WC in soccer, not even close.
    Don't agree at all..i don't get it why you see it like this..its the same teams..
    For the fans in the USA its all about the Olympics.

    And, it probably won't be the same USA(Team)/ players playing in this year's WC playing in the Olympics.  Maybe a few players so USA could have a completely different team for the Olympics next year.  Most of the good players would rather play in the Olympics.
    The rest of the world have different opinion..
    Athens 2006. Dusseldorf 2007. Berlin 2009. Venice 2010. Amsterdam 1 2012. Amsterdam 1+2 2014. Buenos Aires 2015.

    The rest of the world are still trying to beat America.  If they beat this half ass team that is assembled it won't be the same as the Olympic team.

    So the rest of the world can gloat about beating our third tier team if that even happens.

    A thread for the WC in hoops?  Not really interested.

    I expect the USA to win no matter whom they put out on the court actually.  When the Olympics are played the all-stars are usually playing so it's more fun to watch too.

    Alex, you follow the NBA so you know that the players playing in this WC are not the best we can send. I think ther's only 2 All Stars on the WC team. I expect the Olympic team to be almost a completely different team. More  All Stars like Tempo said.

    Tempo, would you be surprised if this USA gets beat in the WC?

    Tempo, would you be surprised if this USA gets beat in the WC? 
    The competition throughout the world is a LOT stronger than even 10 years ago. At the next Olympics, Canada and Australia will be better than ever before, as will many other countries. Yes, the US team will be stacked with talent, but FIBA basketball is a lot different to NBA basketball. If the US go full strength to the Olympics, they should win, but I don't think it will be an easy road. They had some tough games at the last Olympics too.

    As for this World Cup, if the US don't win, that's on them. Any country that beats them gets to lay claim to that until they next meet. You can only beat what turns up to play you. For what it's worth, I think USA should win it, but wouldn't be surprised if there was a loss

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we lost, no. Won’t be surprised if we won either. 

    For whatever reason Spain seems to give us fits and Serbia is pretty damn good. I think that team would fair well in the nba as a whole.

    Spain have the experience with players that have played together for years.

    I think Serbia is pretty good too. I saw them play Greece the other day and they beat Greece in OT. But NO Joker or Teodosic for  Serbia(Don't know why. Hurt? just didn't play them? or not playing in the WC?)

    Great win by the Australian team over the weekend the USA.  I watched both games and whilst they are only exhibition games to warm up for the World Cup, they were good quality.
    This US team still has plenty of talent and the loss (first one in 13 years) will actually help them going into the world cup.  The core of the Australian team has been together for a long time and Patty Mills crushed it in this game (30 points), but Bogut  was also a massive factor. He controlled the game whenever he was on with his screening and passing  on the perimeter.

    It doesn't mean anything in relation to the World Cup, but a great boost to confidence for the Aussies going into the tournament. The USA will still go in as favourites and they will continue to improve, as they comfortably accounted for Canada last night. The FIBA game has some subtle changes compared  to the NBA, which may not seem like much, but does have some effect on the US team.  It should be a close tournament with up to 8 teams expected to challenge for a medal. I expect the US to win it, but it won't be a simple task.

    I also have to say the Coach Pop and the US team have been great with their time in Australia. Very respectful and accessible and always promoting the game.

    I don't think USA played that well at all VS Canada.  Canada played bad as they couldn't make a shot  in the First Quarter. 

    USA has to clean up their Turnovers as they have had way too many TO's in the 4 games they've played.  Ther in a weak Group for the WC so maybe they can get ther shit together before the tough games? We shall see.

    OAKLAND CALIFORNIA - JUNE 13 DeMarcus Cousins 0 of the Golden State Warriors reacts against the Toronto Raptors in the second half during Game Six of the 2019 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 13 2019 in Oakland California

    An arrest warrant has been issued for Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins in Mobile, Alabama on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge, a police spokesperson told A.J. Perez of USA Today Sports.

    The municipal court website lists the charge as third-degree harassing communications, ESPN reports. Further details have yet to be disclosed.

    The Lakers and the NBA are both investigating Cousins after he was allegedly recorded making a death threat toward his ex-girlfriend.

    Cousins' ex-girlfriend says he threatened her during a phone conversation, saying he would "put a bullet in your f------ head" after she refused to allow their seven-year-old son to attend his wedding over the weekend. She has since filed for a restraining order against the 29-year-old.

    "Yes, a warrant has been signed," the woman confirmed to Perez on Thursday.

    Cousins is expected to miss most, if not all, of next season while recovering from a torn ACL suffered during a private workout in Las Vegas earlier this month. He signed a one-year, $3.5-million contract with the Lakers in July.

    Team USA barely squeaked out their last two wins in that FIBA thingy.

    I can't find the actual video but it is hysterical.  If I do find it or someone else beats me to it, please post!

    Petrovic the Brazil coach is talking and the camera FINALLY pans over to him and he says his 40yo player kicked Giannis' ass and mic drops, walks out.

    Love it but can't find it.

    Yeah, it was funny.

    But, you can be a wise ass when you only play once(in most WC Tourneys). 

    What i want to know is how come Giannis took 7 shots? Greek coach?
