moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 18:18 (three years ago) link

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

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 18:18 (three years ago) link

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

Uh oh Dray could cause an international incident

skateboard of education (rip van wanko), Monday, 27 June 2016 18:27 (three years ago) link

this team def the first one thats vulnerable to loss since the last time they loss, dont know if any of the other teams are good tho

lag∞n, Monday, 27 June 2016 18:35 (three years ago) link

really want kd to back out then wed be onto something

lag∞n, Monday, 27 June 2016 18:37 (three years ago) link

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

if young slothrop don't trust ya i'm gon' rhyme ya (slothroprhymes), Monday, 27 June 2016 18:38 (three years ago) link

lithuania-USA game also almost had a fight between boogie and jonas v lol

and mirotic. pau and juan carlos and calderon are all just old tho

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 18:45 (three years ago) link

pau cn still get buckets

lag∞n, Monday, 27 June 2016 18:46 (three years ago) link

def, always balls out w international ball too

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 18:47 (three years ago) link

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 (three years ago) link

ya thats the one i was puzzling over

lag∞n, Monday, 27 June 2016 19:17 (three years ago) link

could also see them starting Melo over PG

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:17 (three years ago) link

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

lag∞n, Monday, 27 June 2016 19:18 (three years ago) link

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

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:18 (three years ago) link

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 (three years ago) link

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 (three years ago) link

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 (three years ago) link

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 (three years ago) link

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 (three years ago) link

yeah there isnt a trad PF on that roster xp

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:24 (three years ago) link

I want to see Boogie and Green play together :)

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:26 (three years ago) link

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 (three years ago) link

i am excited for this roster tbh

marcos, Monday, 27 June 2016 19:34 (three years ago) link

also no white dudes on the team

marcos, Monday, 27 June 2016 19:40 (three years ago) link

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 (three years ago) link

hayward more deserving than harrison

moistest hoist (Spottie), Monday, 27 June 2016 19:46 (three years ago) link

i think he got an invite but said he wanted to hang out w his new kid

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