    I like Nigeria. They are long and athletic. NBA Africa is really helping find some excellent talent and Nigeria has benefited more than any country. Team Nigeria under 18 is almost as good as team USA U18. Mike Brown is a great coach for Nigeria. They all listen to him. Is there a future bet out there on Nigeria? Definitely worth a flyer.

    Booker, Middelton and Holiday are the three Olympians that they'll add when the Finals end. Looking at their team right now I think they are just going through the motions since these are exhibitions but I think they got another thing coming once the real games start if they keep playing like this.

    This US team is very small, they don’t have any frontline or big tough physical players. International basketball is not NBA basketball, it’s much more physical and tough, none of those players add size or toughness to the US roster, which so far has been an issue.

    I'm not very impressed picking up Booker, Middleton and Holiday. Not sure they would be starters??? Where are the big men on this team??? Horrible oversight.

    I think they wanted bigger players, but no way Davis was going to play after his injuries, Embiid wasn’t born here and is hurt too.

    and why is Draymond on the team? He is dead weight. Did you see him turn the ball over in the last 30 seconds of the game? He still refuses to shoot the ball.

    Agree Durant is not a center despite his height, he’s nowhere near physical enough to play center in fina.

    Bam is technically their Center but he's 6'9 so they have a very small lineup. Durant can play the 5 in a small lineup but he's your 3/4 man depending on who's the floor.

    Brook Lopez, Plumlee, Deandre Jordan, Andre drummond, Javale McGee for christ sake. Somebody that can take up space in the paint. International rules favor bigs unlike the NBA.

    Durant won’t be effective at the 5, he’s just not strong physically.

    And it is weird looking at Durant playing the 5 on defense but then playing point on offense? WTF? They need a true PG and a true Center. They don't have either.

    I agree. Very unusual roster. Maybe they were just arrogant, thinking they can just pick the best players. But a lot of these players are tweeners. If they don't win, they are going to get roasted by the media. Pop already flying off the handle at the press conference. This could get very ugly quick.

    Yeah, Poppovich hasn’t been relevant for several years and he’s in his seventies, I thinks younger coach would have made more sense.

    This Australian team isn’t even one of their stronger teams they have had in the last couple years. Bigot and Diaw were both very good for this team and are retired now.
