    Murray is out.
    Jokic is also skipping the World Cup, so the Nuggets obviously (and discreetly) said nope.

    • is it too late to get a replacement?

      • The potential replacement guys are Canadians that play in Europe.

        • Yeah I don't think we medal now with Murray gone. But who knows. RJ and Shai could go ham and help us get to the podium anyway.

            agree it'll be tough to medal now.

            think they'll have to play trae bell-haynes more than they envisioned because a perimeter rotation of shai, RJ, brooks, dort, and NAW probably doesn't have enough shooting unless RJ goes ham like the other day, which you can't bank on.

            where is pangos? did he just not make the cut, because i thought he was invited to camp? he shot pitifully in his brief cavs stint but has otherwise been a shooter throughout his career

              Grange tweeted this about Pangos earlier in the month:





              To bad we didn't just bring in some of the kids from last year's draft. Nembhard alone would have been ideal.

              • I don't know how much we can take from Friendly games but Venezuela lost to Australia by over 40 points but Brazil beats Australia .. Latvia beat Dominican Replublic 74 - 69 .. I just like seeing how the Fiba America teams are doing cause we are competing against them in this tournament as much as teams in our group .

                  I watched the highlights of that Australia vs. Brazil game and looked like a really good one. Australia is pretty stacked with NBA talent, but funnily enough Cobolco was one of the best players in the game and was difference maker for Brazil. Looks like he's playing C now and looked comfortable there.

                  • Spain is tough.. so even though it's a friendly, it will be a really good barometer test for our guys.

                    I believe Courtside 1891 is free.

                    • https://www.proballers.com/basketbal...usa-2023-08-13 It is weird that Canadian basketball fans ( me included ) want a all NBA roster competing at the Worlds but Spain is dangerous but I can't recognize many of the names

                          Because coaching doesn’t matter.

                            There is a tournament going on right now that the winner is only team that gets a chance to qualify for the Olympics .
                            Argentina lost to Bahamas .. There is a chance Argentina won't even quailfy to qualify ..

                              yeah coaching matters, the difference in play style matters as well as rules and officiating, and team continuity to some extent (although that is overblown as you have pointed out before).

                              but i'm also not sure that there's as much of a talent gap between an NBA role player and stars from other top international leagues as there is perceived to be. so like if your national team has a number of NBA players but they are dudes like cory joseph and dwight powell you shouldn't be some sort of prohibitive favorite over a team with less NBA players with stars from other leagues.

                              we finally have some upper echelon NBA talent on the national team. let's see how that works out for us
