    I think this is going to be a very healthy season. I hope no one is sick.

    Absolutely Donovan is a better facilitator than kemba. But Donovan is still a really good sg to me. He's a shooter. Kemba has been terrible. Boston going to be average!

    Ok so USA lost to Serbia. Now they still have to play Poland for 7th place. What a waste. I'd rather have Donovan just get back and work out with the Jazz players.

    Jesus Christ. Why do they even bother with these stupid placement games?

    Seriously. Just crown 5-8 based on some metric. Absolutely stupid, and at least for the U.S., these games are punishments.

    Dumb AF. Hopefully Pop sits DM... he's done enough. Trot out Plumlee, Lopez, and whatever else is laying around for 40 minutes.

    I agree it's idiotic but in some cases it could determine which team qualifies for the Olympics (eg. two best teams in the World Cup from Europe qualify already without having to play in some extra tournament, so if there was just one or none in the semifinals it would matter).

    Agreed. I like the 3-4 placement game but anything after that seems sort of ridiculous.

    @Wes Mantooth By-far the best player on the court today for team usa, was none other than HArrison Barnes.... While Mitchell got smoked by Bogdan Bogdanovic in the p'n'r.

    Kemba had decent boxscore stats but was abused on defense..

    The imminent threat the Kings pose in the western conference is being completely understated. Bogdanovic's game was just in a funk 2nd half of last szn. If he plays like that, they are gonna shock ppl..


    Marvin Bagley is about to have a monster season for sure, thats understated too...

    Look at this game and then think what it would look like with De'Aaron Fox on defense... Serbia's shooting wide-open 3 after wide open 3 after wide open 3...

    Any team with Harrison Barnes can not be overlooked... all day all I see on JazzFanz is people over looking the Kong’s... It’s ignorant. Remember when they are tearing up the league that I warned you first.
