As a USA fan it is embarrassing. They don’t even medal? Either go back to college kids and get your ass kicked or send your best. There shouldn’t be any in between like this embarrassment was

Yes and no, since Basketball is our sport, any time there's an international competition of course you want to win, but let's be honest, as you well know, this was far from our best team, had we sent our best there's no way we lose, and the USA was only I think -400 to win it, so it's not like they were overwhelming favorites. We can't send college kids or else we would have no chance, other countries have a handful of NBA players and professionals that play over seas, and would beat any team made up of college kids.

Right and I said that. We send college kids and they get their ass kicked. At least I am not embarrassed by that. Don’t send your b or c nba team and fail to medal. That is a bigger joke

Please Dave. You didnít exactly have a good read on that Australia team. You certainly didnít think they would be (6-0) with a win over France heading in to the semi finals. It was a tough overtime loss to Spain but it wasnít like betting on China or something
