I mean if Drummond plays, they win. They need his exact presence.

Not surprising, USA looked meh throughout this tournament. No team chemistry what so ever. France was a very tough opponent to get in the quarters also, they are one of the favorites for the gold.

I was gonna make fun of Mitchell but it looks like he finally had a good game, held scoreless in the 4th though

FIBA is a lot more physical than the NBA. and big guys who can pass are kinda key.

USA is soft

Euroleague players are not known here, but they can play. Majority of them are tweeners or half-court players, that's why they aren't a fit for NBA, but that doesn't mean they are scrubs with no skill. They are all technically sound and damn near all of them have shooting range.

Khris Middleton was so bad in FIBA that it feels like he purposefully tanked. And Drummond would have at least been a body in front of Gobert, who utterly demolished the US.

The US laying down for Serbia instead of playing for their pride is pretty fitting end to the whole circus that was the world championships.

Also huge LOL at Colangelo saying he'll "remember" the players that pulled out. Yeah, like he'll actually not allow the good players to participate in the future...

Only Fox & Drummond "pulled out" that I know of, Ayton and Booker declined super early

But maybe he means he will remember so the next time he builds a team he will include them and not the Mitchell Celtics
