    Does this sound like the musings of a winner? Celebrating a 7th place embarrassment? But we beat Poland!

    Pop is a deranged leftist. I think Kawhi does like Trump, but don't it had anything to do with him leaving.

    I think the "life will go on" comment by Pop is simply a way to show how bitter he is against the kind of mentality that took a lot of players to renege their committments to the team...looks to me that the words of Colangelo confirm this.
    The point is simple...all this was frankly unexpected...and for the times, manners and kind of players (young guys with no particular contract problems) that refused to play, it showed not only a disrespect for the organization but also for the nation...against teams that play with the same players all the time and have developed chemistry during years and years you can't assemble a team in two weeks.
    Maybe Pop should ask himself why nobody wanted to play for him.

    Easy. The thing that americans value the most is money, this is their capitalist nature. So, teams, sponsors and fans are the source of income for the NBA players. So they don’t want to jeopardize that by playing for the national team.

    Fox pulled out because Pop's guy White was being forced on the team and taking his minutes.

    So? White played 15 minutes a game. Only two players played less. Plus Fox hardly qualifies as a superstar

    Weird how that wasn't an issue with Coach K, but it suddenly is with Pop.

    Not an issue, you surely know how to rewrite history

    In 2014, many players withdrew from the team when called upon: LaMarcus Aldridge, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, Dwight Howard, Andre Iguodala, LeBron James, David Lee, Kawhi Leonard, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Williams, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love, Kevin Durant.

    No we did. It was invented by a Canadian who got his US citizenship and who lived in the US while he invented the game and started a basketball program in ing Kansas. Itís like saying America didnít invent the A bomb bc German scientists ran the program.

    I just saw an article on ESPN "reflecting" on the 7th place finish. This sentence sort of stood out to me:

    "From the day before its first game in China to the end of the tournament, the U.S. never practiced on days between games, choosing only to get in the gym for one-hour shootarounds in the morning on game days."

    With intensity like that, I just can't figure out why those guys didn't develop any real chemistry.

    A bunch of guys who never played with each other, and all they ever did was some 1-hour shootarounds? I'm sorry, but you can't tell me Pop was focused on winning gold. He wanted to get the Olympic bid tied down, make it a pleasant experience, maybe teach some life lessons or something. Drink some wine together and build culture. Pop has been a great coach, but 1-hour shootarounds isn't preparing. Well, actually it is preparing... for seventh place. If you don't care about winning enough to work for it, stay the home. , send Becky. I bet she would at least have held a few practices.

    ST: Hey guys Pop found a cure for cancer!
    Response: Took him long enough! Selfish ass letting all those people die.

    Nothing better to do on a Saturday morning then at that same old broken record? Move on...
    ST: Holy phuck, Pop has Patty Mills guarding Durant on the block. By design, with the game on the line.

    Slurpers Response: Ya well he's not perfect. He's won 5 les, more then any of you have.

    Anyone who's not trolling and genuinely believes all the absences were because of who was coaching, is delusional and places way too much importance on coaches, especially in a short term format.

    Still, he deserves criticism and not because any other coach was more likely to win given the factors against them (they weren't), but because any other coach would have received plenty anyway . . . and despite all they didn't have, they still had the best depth of talent to work with.

    Instead, as usual he comes out of it unscathed. Can't have it both ways.
