    Thibs commented 5 times on ESPN that they needed to give the ball to DM but they never did

    Yes, it was on ESPN2 and Thibs was the commentator. In one case announcer even asked "why doesn't Donovan Mitchell have the ball" or such, to which Thibs replied "They're running different sets (in Q4), trying to put Gobert on P&R"

    I just don’t get it.


    Also, Thibs is almost as bad as players only. He’s more insightful, but no emotion.

    Rudy was just interviewed on ESPN, said it was a win he’s been dreaming about for a long time.

    Kinda sad that he beat such a crappy US team.

    I wouldn't say they are crappy. They won every game before this one. They are still one of the best teams in this tournament. The rest of the world has gotten better.

    Ya it's crappy compared to our Olympic team but in comparison with the rest of the fiba teams this team USA is actually still very good.
    Good win for Rudy and France

    It bugs me that USA lost, yet Gobert won it for France and Donovan played a great game. Take what you can get and move on.

    Thibs on ESPN now.. comparing donovan Mitchell's play with Derrick Rose back in Istanbul 2010. He reminds D-Rose continued the momentum and won the MVP in the NBA. WOW

    Welp, DM made it through FIBA without an injury. Now let’s hope Joe and Rudy do the same.

    Kind of disappointing but bring everyone back healthy and this loss will be irrelevant in the long run.
