This USA team. Woof.
Just lost 90-87 to Nigeria. Biggest win in the continent of Africa's history.

Exhibition but the US perimeter D was bad. Outscored by 30 from 3.
I posted a thread a couple weeks ago saying this team USA is underwhelming.

So if we don’t do better we may not even qualify for the Olympics?
Already in but the process is setup like FIFA pods. We have to finish in the upper half of a 4 team pod. France, Chech Republic, and Iran are in our pod.
US and France should advance. Should.

Before the thread gets too far I have to ask why they didn't cancel this last year?

Like, preemptively cancel a year in advance?

Looking at it like anything else: $$

Yeah, the IOC can sue Japan if they don’t pull the games off this summer. There have been protests by Japanese citizens against holding the Olympics given their COVID situation. But the IOC wants to milk their cash cow so the games must go on.

Hey OP, may I ask if this thread is for the discussion of all the sports in the Tokyo Olympics, men's and women's, or is just for the men's basketball only?
