    Should France instantly be considered a threat to prevent the USA from Gold?

    How do we feel about team USA's chances to continue their dominance over world basketball and win Gold?

    I won't be surprised if USA has some tough times in the Olympics.

    You won't even need to boo Australia, we're in a group with Canada, Spain, and Greece; we won't win a game.

    I disagree with not selecting Tisse, and I also think Cooks should've been picked.

    I wouldn't have picked Delly, or Kay, and I'm not sold on Magnay or Daniels.

    If I'm being brutally honest, Patty, and Jingles shouldn't have been picked either.

    We're going through a generational change, and because the coach is a fossil, he won't let go of the vets.

    His first Olympics and then his Blazers rookie season was incredible, and the upside we all thought was around the corner four the Blazers is something I've only seen from the 2000 era.

    Never had any of that in Dame tenure. Hoping that we experience it sometime in the next decade of the Sharpe/Scoot/whomever era. Ownership gives me the biggest concern we won't though.

    I heard the old guys on Team USA almost got whooped in a scrimmage game against the younger Team USA.

    ... is it too late to change the roster ??
