    Dame and CJ have been added to the camp invite list. Considering the tournament is in China, I'm expecting every player with a major shoe deal will want to go. CJ being endorsed by Li Ning prolly gives him even more incentive to try to make it.

    https://www.espn.com/olympics/baske...4472/sources-lillard-beal-part-usa-hoops-camp

    Camp invites so far:

    Dame
    CJ
    Beal
    Love
    AD
    Harden
    Eric Gordon
    Tatum
    Mitchell
    Middleton
    B. Lopez
    Kuzma
    Aldridge
    Drummond

    If the Olympic dudes are out (Bron/Steph/KD/etc), I fully expect Dame to get the invite to the real team and also for him to accept it. Great chance for Dame to do some recruiting.

    Zion I believe is being invited as well. Not sure if it's official yet.

    I dont like that Dame and CJ could play in China for team usa. They need rest because next Season is gonna be tough without Nurkic for a long time

    I'm very excited about Australia's chances at finally winning a medal. This is our strongest ever squad, with 8 NBA players (9 if you count Creek who played for Brooklyn, and Minnesota), with only Thon Maker (Detroit - Pistons asked him not to play), and Ryan Broekhoff (Dallas - his wife is giving birth, poor timing) missing.

    Deng Adel Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA)
    Aron Baynes Boston Celtics (NBA)
    Todd Blanchfield Illawarra Hawks
    Andrew Bogut Sydney Kings Golden State Warriors (NBA)
    Jonah Bolden Philadelphia 76ers (NBA)
    Xavier Cooks s.Oliver Würzburg (Germany)
    Mitch Creek South East Melbourne Phoenix
    Matthew Dellavedova Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA)
    Cameron Gliddon Brisbane Bullets
    Chris Goulding Melbourne United
    Joe Ingles Utah Jazz (NBA)
    Nicholas Kay Perth Wildcats
    Jock Landale Partizan (Serbia)
    Mitch McCarron Melbourne United
    Patty Mills San Antonio Spurs (NBA)
    Brock Motum Anadolu Efes (Turkey)
    Ben Simmons Philadelphia 76ers (NBA)
    Nathan Sobey Brisbane Bullets

    I'm surprised how short the tournament is, only 15 days.

    I'm also looking forward to the Australia v USA warm up games in Melbourne at Marvel Stadium, on August 22 and 24 (that's 21 and 23 for you lot). Both games have sold out the over 53,000 capacity roofed Australia Football stadium. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get tickets.

    They'll be working out and running scrimmages anyway. I don't think this makes much of a difference. If anything it's better for them. They'll have enough R&R afterwards.

    I hope you realize that Paul George breaking his leg is the outlier.

    Damian could also get hit by a bus.

    :dunno:

    Live life to the fullest. He should go get a gold medal.

    It's an honor.

    Sorry, but after the debacle last year with the Philippines, I've lost respect for both teams.

    Yes in fact it is harsh, it is just our coach instead of coaching he should be running a tavern or something like that. We got some quality Euroleague players.

    Both equally? Because the Australian team didn't do too much wrong IMO. The Philippines team were classless thugs, with them starting it and like 10 of them stomping on an Australian on the ground.
