First time the men’s team has lost back to back exhibition games since the NBA players started playing in 1992. This team has a significant drop in talent on the bench. The rest of the world has not only caught up, but maybe even surpassed us on the basketball court…

Just looked at their roster.  How in TF are they getting beat by Nigeria and Australia?!  🤣😂

 

They're NBA players.  They don't even try until they absolutely have to.

He had money on the game.  Trying to bankroll some of the RCC settlement payouts and lawyer fees.

 

Ah.  Yeah ... I'm not going there.

I’m over watching NBA players in the international game. The original Dream Team was one of my greatest early sports memories, but it no longer holds the same allure. It’s a lose lose situation for pro players these days. If they don’t demolish every opponent, it’s seen as a failure, but losing is the ultimate failure. Victories are the expectation, meaning that gold medals don’t feel like an accomplishment. I found it intriguing to watch superior pro players against inferior opponents with the original Dream Team. Now the gap has closed a bit, but we’re still expected to win. I no longer find it interesting without witnessing the pure dominance.

This is not a good look. Idc if they are exhibitions 

 

This is an American sport, and it doesn't look like we're going to win a gold 

 

Congratulations to Nigeria and Australia

When did basketball become America's sport?

Baseball and Football are America’s sport IMO.

not to mention, I can hit a three and make free throws.  
I’m not sure I could ever score in NFL or hit a MLB pitcher

I'm not saying it's America's favorite sport.. I'm saying we invented it and we've always been by far the best

I'm Not calling it America sport, like it's our past time 

 

The sport was invented in America and perfected by American players.. that's what I meant by our sport
