Fuck that sucks for Demarcus. Always liked this guy, he has his critics but he is one of those guys who has just wanted to win and when he finally got some help he basically loses his career.

Turkey miss 4 consecutive FT to bottle the game vs USA by a point in overtime.

Good tournament for the Boomers so far especially without nba all star Ben Simmons, 5-0 into the quarter finals including good wins over Lithuania and France.

The USA weren’t as lucky

Not surprising considering probably our top 15 best guys didn’t wanna go and play :joy::joy:

Might have been the USA D team, but they still had the team with the most talent and a quarter final exit is unacceptable…

We just beat Czech Republic to advance to play Spain in the Semi Finals, hopefully we can extract some revenge for our narrow loss in the Bronze medal playoff game in Rio.

We will certainly see a better USA team in the coming olympics, then the others wouldn’t stand a chance really.

I’m going to call it right now. Jokic is the 2019/20 season MVP.

He probably won’t get the vote because he doesn’t score 25+ ppg.

Fuck heartbreaking loss for the Boomers to Spain in double overtime.

A little over a week before we get going again. First game being NOLA at Toronto. What is going to happen in the East is clear cut; Milwaukee and Philadelphia are going to reach the conference finals, play offs will be filled out with Indiana, Boston, Miami, Toronto, Brooklyn and a ‘wild card’ but overall nothing surprising.

The West is going to be a blood bath though. Every team except for Memphis and Oklahoma City is aiming for the play offs. When everybody is healtly the LA teams + Houston/Golden State will probably be the top four teams. But the overall quality is insane.

I think those 4 you mention will make playoffs along with Denver, Utah, Portland and someone else.

The NBA is back, Toronto vs NOLA , LAC vs LAL.

Zion expected to miss multiple weeks due to knee injury, can see a D.Rose situation here, someone with his size playing as aggressively as he does, will get his knees shot before they know it.

This season predicting the Lakers as Champs isn’t just a biased view, but also a fair view :wink:.

Ibaka actually went for the snake dish :arteta: :ozil:

I want to amend my initial prediction. GSW are garbage this year wow, they are gonna be a lottery team. I’ll throw Minnesota in there instead. KAT is playing really well.
