this team is weird and therefore I think will be fun to watch

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 18:18 (two years ago) Permalink

what other teams are even good anymore? Spain seems super old at this point. France and Brasil might be good, Lithuania?

really want kd to back out then wed be onto something

lag∞n, Monday, 27 June 2016 18:37 (two years ago) Permalink

australia maybe? idk

if the last FIBA cup squads were any indication, the one that got furthest before ultimately being defeated by USA was...lithuania? spain generally good but they'll be down a major gasol

Who you guys think the starting five is for the title game

tough call between DJ and Boogie

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:16 (two years ago) Permalink

ya thats the one i was puzzling over

lag∞n, Monday, 27 June 2016 19:17 (two years ago) Permalink

could also see them starting Melo over PG

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:17 (two years ago) Permalink

u cld conceivably go w D at the 1 with lowery too but idk

lag∞n, Monday, 27 June 2016 19:18 (two years ago) Permalink

i think if melo starts then DJ starts. if PG starts then boogie starts

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:18 (two years ago) Permalink

rather have pg being a jack of all trades low usage guy than melo out there hoisting imo

lag∞n, Monday, 27 June 2016 19:19 (two years ago) Permalink

Dunno if he'll start but melo always tears it up in international ball

gis for westbrook shark jump (agent hibachi), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:21 (two years ago) Permalink

Melo is our all-time hoister in international competition, he's gonna be the splash older cousin this time

gis for westbrook shark jump (agent hibachi), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:22 (two years ago) Permalink

This roster just seems weird overall though so many swing guys who could all conceivably play the 3, guess they'll spread out from 2 to 4

gis for westbrook shark jump (agent hibachi), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:23 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah i think it's time for him to take a lesser role but he def loves international ball and may get the nod cos of experience

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:24 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah there isnt a trad PF on that roster xp

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:24 (two years ago) Permalink

I want to see Boogie and Green play together :)

goon ball gonna be v hype

if young slothrop don't trust ya i'm gon' rhyme ya (slothroprhymes), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:30 (two years ago) Permalink

i am excited for this roster tbh

marcos, Monday, 27 June 2016 19:34 (two years ago) Permalink

also no white dudes on the team

marcos, Monday, 27 June 2016 19:40 (two years ago) Permalink

no truly good NBA wites this year, least not american wites

this does remind me that mason plumdawg made the 2014 fiba team and gordon hayward didn't and it brought great consternation to a handful of jazz beat writers on twitter

if young slothrop don't trust ya i'm gon' rhyme ya (slothroprhymes), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:46 (two years ago) Permalink

hayward more deserving than harrison

A USA tradition since 2008, when players lined up in reverse order so Coach K himself could block Dwight's adidas
