    SGA is a Canadian. He even played for canada last world cup.
    Now that you mention it, I knew that, but I completely blacked it out.

    i dont know about doomed, but the door will definitely open for other countries. durant has been the easy button for the US team for the last 3 olympics. he dragged them at various points in 2021 when guys like lollard were ting the bed
    Yeah right.. thats why if lebron curry and durant retired from international games the US will struggle.

    US cant count on lillard booker and tatum to lead team USA..lol

    Nope, USA A Team is still scorching anyone. there were much more other talented teams in these past decades (Argentina, Spain, France, Yougoslavia)... the current teams are pretty mediocre, they're just more prepared but talent wise, there were much better euro teams in the past.

    A Curry, Lebron, Durant, Tatum, Harden, Kawhi, Paul George, Butler, Devin Booker, Embiid, Chet, Adebayo, Brook Lopez (to name a few) US Team is destroying everybody. Nobody's beating that team.
    I don't see the US "destroying" everybody, tbh. Yeah, they would still be the heavy favourites, but the years of stomping everybody by 30+ points are long gone, tbh.

    I would be highly surprised if the US don't have a couple of close games, even a loss, in these upcoming Olympics, tbh.

    he's no durant, but i think Tatum is a pretty good replacement for that role, and he was the best US player other than KD last olympics and was consistent. he also just turned 26

    i still think the gap is massive, but depends on final rosters. if embiid plays its a huge difference maker and probably gives them a near guarantee imho. he would murder euro style of play in the interior
    Is that why we didnít even Medal in the WC?

    I dont think he can carry team USA like durant did.. thats why i think they naturalized embid so that they have a solid player for team USA in the future..

    yeah he's not durant. durant has been a "win now" button for the US international team. the 2021 games were pretty hilarious. US would suck and pop would just let durant go score and thats how the US would pull away

    they cant go with half-assed rosters without KD. the young crop is fine but not the heyday of lebron/wade/kd, etc. haliburton, holmgren, edwards, paulo, bane, jjj... nice players. but they need to load up and not send crap like keldon johnson and javale mcgee

    WC team was select team level tbh. its like 2004 when a lot of the best players opted out or bailed on the team after dominating the qualifiers

    LeBron hasnít played USMNT basketball since 2012. Not sure why people think this will be his last one, since that already happened a long time ago. Curry has never played for USA in an Olympics. He withdrew from the 2020 team.

    Which led to the reboot Redeem Team in 2008. They recognized a problem then, and thereís one now.

    the problem then was not that the US lacked quality players, its that players didnt give a and opted out.

    which is the same thing that happened in the world cup, and has the same result of the big stars coming back

    According to Charania and Harper, the current U.S. Olympic team is comprised of 7 locks: James, Durant, Embiid, Curry, Tatum, Booker, Holiday.

    Merit and need would seem to make Davis a logical eighth.

    With Morant's and Williamson's recent off court transgressions and the fact that the current best five and next one are all foreign, Edwards is a logical ninth as he's the current desperate attempt to force a new captain America with James, Curry and Durant in their twilight.

    I'm guessing Haliburton, Bridges and Holmgren fill out the team, with Brunson, Brown and Adebayo the toughest omissions.

    Edwards is a low IQ, top 20ish player who's been getting the agenda driven push since last summer for the reason I stated.

    He's an easy sell to casuals with a gregarious personality, freakish athleticism and playing a traditional glamor position.

    Too bad the truth is his team has mostly won on the strength of their defense, which is led by Gobert.

    First Echeverri, now Mastantuono. Let us enjoy our kids a bit longer
    1- City are the worst. They robbed you. At least they just extended their new gem with a 50M exit clause. Imo heíll leave at 18yo

    2- donít get me started (already off topic ^^) I wish South American teams could keep their youngsters longer! Everybody would win, local leagues level would raise so overall playersís who often leave before finishing their development.
    European clubs would get more talent ready players like it was in the 90í

    Football overall talent has never been as low as today. Just athletes now

    3- the kid would be great in Paris (my team is PSG). We know how to take care of our Argentinians!

    What would that be, bro? He isn't lightskin nor his personality conforms to the white audience, tbh.

    I'm not picking a side as to Edwards superstar or not, but that dunk that got all the hype a few days ago.

    Offensive farking foul. Asshat pokes Collins in the eye on the way up. Totally not cool. Gaymond Green level b.s. Should have been a flagrant.

    Instead ESPN etc ing big time, over promoting.

    What part of ‘He’s said no the past two times’ are you not understanding? LeBron is not walking through that door.
