    Doesn’t mean anything for NBA directly but some players build a lot of confidence with a medal and a lot of authorities definitely take it as a factor of recognition so it would indirectly help the Jazz to have the leading player on their team that brings the gold.

    This is why Mitchell should play. It will be good for his marketing and hopefully give him a chance to acclimate to a scoring role on a well rounded team (like the Jazz will be this year).

    Hmm, I just realized I'm staying really close to where the Beijing games will be played. I really should go to the games. Unfortunately I don't know my schedule far enough to buy tickets.

    Wouldn't your employers be able to sort something for you?

    I'm sure I could ask around. It's the competition season for my team though. So I don't know what competitions they will be in and where for the next few months. Communication is kinda poor. My team can also only stay at the Olympic facilities here if they do well at their next event. If they don't we'll move back to the opposite side of town.

    With all top american players dropping out like flies I would not be surprised for repeat of 2004-2006 and USA not winning a gold. When you have Plumlee's and the likes as candidates to make the team USA could be in real trouble for the first time since 2006.

    Vincent Collet is still about as horrible of a coach as you can get on international stage. You have to be a special kind of inept to not figure out how to use top 3 center in the world year after year after year. And he continues to keep his job failure after failure after failure.

    Rudy got called for 2 offensive fouls(screen and on a rebound). He also had a nice offensive rebound and eurostepy finish with contact for and-1 in transition.

    France starting their bench in the second half. Might have been a short night for Gobert.

    edit: some starters back on the floor ... interesting.
