    why don't you throw another 100 mph fastball to Cousins, Rose. 10 turnovers already.

    when is Irving going to pass the ball? Going one on one everytime he has a chance. Pass the ball you jerk.

    Agree on the Turkey game was really frustrating watching Kyrie dribble and shoot and not pass. I knew we'd eventually pull away we were far more talented but Coach K's shoot tons of 3's and hope the opponent misses their 3's style was bad coaching. Turkey ran 2 plays the whole first half pick and roll or drive and kick. This is how he loses to Lehigh and Mercer with McD's AA's up and down his roster. I'm also puzzled why he doesn't play Curry and Thompson together more, you'd think if you have NBA teammates you'd try to take advantage of that some by playing them together but seems like they're rarely in at the same time.


    I watched the Philippines nearly beat Argentina. I'm surprised the rules are that lax, Andray Blatche simply applied to be a naturalized citizen, got it, and then got 1 million dollars to play 2 months with the Philippine team. He's got absolutely no connection to the country other than he got naturalized to play in the tourney. he's also the laziest guy on offense he played great, on defense he stood there. He had 15 boards but gave up a ton of offensive ones even the announcers were commenting on how little effort he gave on defense. I guess that's why he's not in the NBA anymore.

    The USA offense in the half court is stagnant and boring. I'm sorry but the USA team on offense looked like a bunch of individuals trying to get numbers. Frustrating.
