  1. Nba going soft, dudes sitting out dozens of games for “load management”, barely any rookies played in summer league this year, guys skipping FIBA World Cup and shit. No passion

  2. All these guys that don’t want to represent the USA are not good in my book. Back in the day EVERYONE that they asked to play for team USA played with pride. I lost so much respect for these guys that don’t wanna play, I would give anything to represent the USA in any form of international competition. I really don’t understand this.

  3. They could have put together this roster without sending 3 young players at the COST of a 2nd round pick. They could have put it together without Davis waiving his $4M option. They could have done this without grovelling to the Pelicans to delay the trade before doing both of those. Let's not sing Pelinka's praises for messing things up, cleaning up his mess, and then missing his man (Kawhi).

  4. They can let all new rookies in the nba play in fiba world cup and still win the gold. USA is and will always be number 1 in basketball. Let the stars handle real bidness in their league.

  5. AD will finally get the respect he deserves this year this is the same man that put up 50pts 16rebs 7steals 4blocks and 5ast in a season opener at age 23 people really been trying to say Paul George is better than him

  6. I laugh at anyone who thinks next years Lakers are going to be a running team.

    With Vogel as coach and LeBron running the offense, this is going to be a half court, possession, mismatch hunting, power team.
    The way the roster is constructed tells as much.

    I don’t think Boogie comes off the bench, I think he starts (for shooting, passing and enforcement next to Davis):

    Bradley
    Green
    James
    Davis
    Cousins

    Second unit:

    Rondo
    KCP
    Dudley
    Kuzma
    McGee

    Closing lineup:

    Bradley (or the hot hand)
    Green
    James
    Kuzma
    Davis.
