We aren't sending the A team

Well I don't think the current USA team is going to get anything but gold

That team will do WORK @OP is right.

Our team this year is definitely not B, it may not be the A++ team (no steph or lbj) but it should dominate (Kyrie KD draymond klay etc). The 2004 team was a joke with many joke players (old A.I., marbury, boozer, emeka okafor, marion, amare, jefferson) coached by a joke (Larry brown) with way too young melo/lbj/wade.

Same reason they let people compete for bronze in table tennis

@OP you do know other places around the world play basketball right? Smh

Go LITHUANIA!!!!!!!

Yeah f*ck competitive spirit

@EY2- Yes I do! Spain and France have really good teams and so does Argentina! But I don't see how any of those countries beat USA to gold this year

Our 2008 team was more legit than this squad and only beat Spain by 11. Most of the 4th quarter was single digits

It doesn't matter how much of a lock it is lol. This is sports! People like to compete

To everyone- My post was with reference to the game where USA played China

Also Miracle on Ice. We wouldn't have wanted the IOC to just give the hockey gold to the Soviets
