    So watching this whole tournament for a lot of us must be the exact inverse of what a couple fans here usually do, where it’s all about the national team and they just follow the teams that their NT guys play for and get conflicted about who to root for when they go against each other. For them, the NBA season is exhibition.

    It’s all about that Larry O’Brien, and it will make it that much sweeter when it happens to have set that as the ultimate goal from the get-go, rather than being secondary to anything.

    Also, Gobert is our best player, though I realize most people here know that, even though superficially Donovan gets all the pub. Hopefully this helps him solidify his “brand” and gets him more cred that’s owed him.

    Also, I’m not sure if it will be on ESPN+ or not but US plays Serbia tomorrow at 5AM just as an FYI. Not that the game is meaningful really but still some more experience for Donovan.

    Yup. Rudy’s greatness is in that he’s all about doing the things that WIN basketball games

    I wonder if Myles Turner regrets running his dumb mouth

    They all knew Donovan was gonna bolt from team USA the second the NBA season started. He's all about the bright lights of the NBA, despite all the positive things he's said about FIBA.

    Never run your mouth prior to a competition in sports. Never.

    Gobert is no nonsense and only cares about winning and I’ve wondered if all the love and pub that Donovan gets sort of bothers him some deep down and motivates him to work his butt and be the best player he can be.

    Dude lived, well he left the alley eventually, was a bloody pulp. Mind you he and his buddies had it coming, 6 of them jumped a young bloke we worked with in the car park of another bar. He came to the joint we were working at to tell the boss about it and saw them in crowd. We invited them to join us for a conversation out the back.

    GOOOOOOOBERT!!!

    JOOOOOOOINGLES!

    Those 3 Jazz players were arguably the MVPs of their teams. One of the other two should definitely come back as a world champ and motivated for more!

    Go Jazz!

    Yes, I’m too lame for trash talk. That’s why I don’t like it. Go take a hike, you NARP.

    Gobert cried over not making the All-Star team, clearly he cares about his individual legacy along with winning.

    It’s obvious hyperbole, dimwit.
