    Seems like Metu will make Nigeria final roster to the WC and might face Pop if Nigeria advance...
    Maybe he can finally show Pop what improvements he did last Summer

    How bad do you have to be to barely make the Nigeria world team. What mega powers are on that squad?

    They might. Actually after seeing USA team go down vs the Aussies... anything goes.

    Our NBA players, especially the younger stars, should be shamed for dropping or not playing. IMO they are taking reping the US for granted.

    Metu right now against Argentina, his defense is outrageous, like Davis Bertans bad, can't see how he's getting any real minutes with the Spurs this season...

    Still crazy after all these years. And I love that, Jackson said. Id rather play with someone like him, who plays hard and gets hurt, than someone who is afraid.

    Have a look at Giannis and Jokic’s stats, they’re not amazing during this competition. I really believe Metu is doing a nice job over there.

    He seems to have bulked up a little. I’m still rooting because he could provide that athletic stretch 4 or even long 3 if Spurs get lucky, help defend athletic 3 and 4.

    He’s not a three, no matter what his build or athleticism. He completely lacks the skill set for the position. He can switch onto threes, but that’s it.

    "A coach can't change people," Gregg Popovich said before the Spurs obliterated the Nets on New Year's Eve. "They are who they are. No matter what team you're talking about, a coach can be observant and try to put his team in situations both on and off the court where some of that can develop, some of the camaraderie sorts of things. But you can't change people."

    It’s good to see him get to play and he seems to be developing his game.

    Can’t expect much more at this point. This will likely be an important year for Metu. Another season in Austin and a little time with the big squad could give him a chance to make an impression in 20/21. I’m pulling for him to make the cut.

    I looked at those as well as a few others. Most seem to be about the same but we know jokic is better. It is still a good sign that is atleast doing something over there.

    I am somewhat hopeful for him. I am not expecting much but if he can get PT every game as the 4th big I would be happy.
