USA playing Turkey right now in a close game. They don't look too great.

Serbia on the other hand, has been murking teams. Beating Angola 105-59 and the Phillipines 126-67.

Wow, USA barely escapes Turkey. 93-92 in OT. Turkey missed 4 FT's in a row that could have iced the game. What a choke job.

Such a shame representing your country isn't a huge honour for USA. 

I get it though, you're risking injuries and massive contracts, but guys like Giannis, Ingles, Jokic are so eager to represent their country, it's the highest honour for them.

USA C squad still formidable.

Im going for Argentina. They have a very good chance.

I thought Serbia was the favourite. Spain and Argentina final will be sick.

France just beat USA, so they are looking really good. Gobert in FIBA? That seems unfair! Too bad the games are so damn early. I would watch that shit.

Spain has a really tough game in Australia. Australia is playing great. I'd say they are the favorite, but me being a Spanish citizen (dual USA citizen), I'll be rooting for Spain.

Tomas Satoransky basically. Dude is a stud. Played his heart out this tournament. He should start for the Bulls next year.

USA goes down to Serbia.

Serbia was up 32-7 after the 1st qtr. USA clawed back, but still end up losing by 5.

Embarrassing. Don't put a team out if they are this bad.

Fucking Aussies. We really shit the bed and choked. Should've beaten Spain and should have beaten France. 

Same shit as last Olympics, every time there's a medal on the line we choke.
