    Just over a year ago in Chicago, Gregg Popovich raised the question with commissioner Adam Silver at the annual NBA coaches meeting: How did the USA Basketball national coaching job turn into a lifetime appointment for a college coach?


    I've been saying that for years. Coaching the USMNT is an honor more than an actual coaching position, Coach K hogging it up for a three-peat is narcissistic af when you have great coaches like Pop who still haven't had that honor.

    cosigned on everyone saying it's well deserved. Great news for Pop and Spurs. Didn't think it would happen but glad it finally did.

    That is a good point. Plus if Kawhi plays you know Pop will look at the bigger picture, I don't get that vibe with coach K.

    LeBron James, who has played in three Olympics, called Popovich the best coach in the world.

    "Team USA is in good hands with him," James said. "It was in good hands with Coach K. It’s almost like The Godfather. We hand it off to Michael Corleone now."

    Woj's hit pieces are hilarious tbh.
    I wonder how long Wojo has had that basically written, hoping to just finalize it and send it in one day...

    I mean it fits Coach K perfectly as narcissistic as he is and all..

    You can't hate Coach K though, IMO. He did a heck of a job and his record and les with USAB speak for themselves...

    you think it is the order of things that he should enjoy the tenure that's 3 Olympics long? let's face it. if Pop of all people took it upon himself to voice it to the NBA commissioner, you know something was untenable..you might say Pop have an benefit/ax to grind in this? well, he suggested Doc for the job..

    You or I could've won gold with Bron & KD. I maintain that Team USA is the overwhelming favorite in every game it plays and that it's an honor given to great coaches moreso than it is an actual coaching position.

    Coach K got much more out of the program than he put in. He leveraged the lower levels of compe ion as a feeder system for Duke, even going so far as to put one of the Plumlees on the World Cup team he had no business being on.

    All I'm saying is that Coach K did an incredible job, especially in light of previous embarrassments. We can argue if he was too long on the job (more of a Colangelo/Stern responsibility) or if he wasn't always transparent in his position (also enabled by Colangelo/Stern), but his 73-1 record (or whatever it is), medals and trophies, speaks greatly of the work he's done there.

    They've cut the pool of players down to 30 today. Both Leonard and Aldridge are among the 30 still hoping for a spot.

    Feel like Kawhi is a lock, so it's really just wondering what LMA would have to do to make it. I don't see him having much of a chance to make it, but with his new-found defensive game, he might get in as the best or second-best two-way big.

    Puerto Rico just zoned them and let all the slashers take shots from outside.
    Timmy tried hard. Odom wasn't that bad either.
    Arroyo cut through their defense. They had better talent back then as compared to now.

    USA learned to balance the talent from then on though..

    Just cut Barnes, Anthony, Conley, Derozan, Iguodala, Howard, Love, Drummond now.
