    I honestly dont mind if top players skip any tournaments. As a nation, we should be able to win these tournaments with ease considering how much the best league in the world is dominated by Americans. There’s still a lot of talent sitting at home.

    the difference is in america your team literally owns you whereas in Europe every club understands the desires of players to play for their country. Also FIBA is more respected, it is seen as the world cup. Olympics has prestige but its actually an easier tournament to win as there are less teams especially now with the proper qualifying format of FIBA.

    the other issue is that in america players play an unhealthy number of reg season games bringing some players to play 100 games per season. This is why you get injuries and players who are in the finals physically cannot play for their country consistently otherwise they will jeopardise their health – even giannis who loves to play for greece could not last eurobasket and he said it was the “hardest part of his career so far”. The bucks would not let him basically.

    So this is the issue, its not about “raising your profile” and getting ads. It’s that the NBA dominates basketball whereas in other sports like football the biggest leagues do not (yet) dominate the international organisations. And US players play too much. They should lower the reg season to 60 games but the sponsors would not allow it. Take some money out. In Europe players get maybe half NBA wages but they also play around half the games and get a proper summer break, no more than 2 games per week. This is a better system. Take some of the money out and make the game better for everybody.

    PS – USA only are mega favourites when they have all star lineup, when they pick b teams historically they struggle eg, 2000, 2002, 2006. Lets see what happens. Serbia Greece Spain France all very strong plus a lot of other good teams lithuania, argentina, interested to see how China play in their home country. Really a shame not to see Slovenia there. What an amazing run Dragic and Doncic had in last eurobasket. was special

    NOBODY CARES about this shiT…. the NBA season where guys get 100 million dollar contracts to perform means MORE to us in the U.S.A. … the solution is take about 5 or 6 NBA players who are committed then sprinkle in “others” from G-League & a couple collegiate guys & maybe a couple Big 3 guys .. im sure a veteran or 2 like joe johnson sTAT or captain JAck can help .. & then u guarantee a couple non NBA guys from the fiba world cup team a spot on Olympic team do NOT just bump them for a whole NBA team in the Olympic year

    Pretty sure Jaylen brown is the best wing defender but I’ll admit Middleton is the better shooter I don’t think pj tucker even makes the cut

    Collins should be there in my opinion. Kid is a talent. Definitely over PJ Tucker.

    Mitchell, Tatum, and Kemba are so overrated. I think Middleton is the best player in the team

    I dunno if this squad can win it all. I feel like they need more especially against the giants like Spain and now Greece (Giannis)

    Treating the olympics as the real tournament is stupid.. how can it be grander than the world cup when there is a lot of sports that are played, and basketball is not the focus. Im so excited to see the US lose again
