I don't think Lebby has that power when it comes to this regime but it's not as if those guys would be bad choices anyway

K gonna save a spot for Kyrie

lillard best option to play in the olympics is to apply for chinese citizenship

You're going to really sit up here and act like it's such a huge travesty if Kobe "steals" a roster part from someone who wouldn't make or break the chance at gold and would likely be young enough to play in another Olympic tourney anyway.
Naw that's not what I'm saying and not what Kobe is saying. Kobe is talking about playing a big part on the team and contributing. The interview asked him about the "12th" man role and Kobe said he can and wants to play a big role on the USA team.

I don't care about him riding the pine, but I think it's messed up that he Wants to play but not a bench spot and would still want to take minutes from a superstar while declining....

Watch the Allstar game this year and you will see where I'm coming from.

Kobe hate and Team Usa are kind of diffferent. As someone has said, don‘t let Kobe disgrace the country. If he does join, we‘ll have a trillion of youtube vids of Kyrie Shamgodding crossing Kobe up and leaving him doing piurorettes DWTS type moves. That‘s proally why Kobe don‘t wanna play no more.

Kobe had a good run, he doesn‘t need to grow out a goatee and jack 3s on the international stage. Plus lotta guys lowkey hate him on team usa. Don‘t let the PR propaganda politically correct responses in the twitter world confuse you.

Kyrie's game is made for FIBA.

Looking at that player pool, I wonder how some of these dudes feel going to the camp knowing they have no shot of making the team? After being the best at every baketball stop in their life until this point. Some may just say the experience was fun. But the ones that are the franchise player on their respective teams have to take it some type of way.

Well if they're in camp then you already know their attitude. They're doing it possibly for 2020 to show good faith and to also build camaraderie 

 

Plus there could be injuries and other circumstances that pop up. Participating in the camp will keep their chances alive

If Kobe was the kind of man who would be ok with being the 12th man on team usa, cheering his teammates on, he wouldn't be chucking up 4 from 17 from 3 for a game.

Hey, it works in Bobsled - Germany, Switzerland and others get a couple of teams - and their B squad usually beats most of the other countries.

What a bulletproof parallel you made there.

Brilliant logic.
post #25911 of 93193

I personally don't care if Kobe's on the team, and think he will be on the team, but There is no doubt the US will win gold with or without Kobe. He isn't making a difference there. The amount of sheer marketing ability Nike can have with Kobe on the team is too much to not put him on there. He's freaking Kobe Bryant. The last hoorah.

 

But if he's on the team that probably means someone who's far more deserving didn't make it. That's an honor to be on a gold medal olympic team, and it isn't some guarantee that that player will be able to have this opportunity in 2020. Who knows what will happen in 2020.

Honestly, I prefer Blake not to go. The beating his body will take this season will be rough. IMO his pop is already waning a bit

 

I could see DMC going over Blake

I could see it too. But I don't know if Team USA brass is too fond of DMC honestly. Wasn't there some friction between both parties previously?

Actually I believe his performance in 2014 in Spain Worlds put him in good graces with them

 

Colangelo:

 

“You can use all the superlatives you want,” Colangelo said Tuesday afternoon, “and apply them to DeMarcus. He made the team, made a major contribution, made tremendous strides. In the locker room after our win over Serbia (earned an automatic berth to the Rio Games), DeMarcus in particular was emotional. He hugged me and thanked me for putting him on the team, and I told him, ‘the past is the past. This is the beginning of your career. Take everything you learned back to Sacramento. You can build on this and have a tremendous career.’ ”

CP3 and Wade are good friends. Wade learned from the Master Shaq on how to take a vacation during the season and passed it to CP3. Wade and CP3 will both be hurt around spring break..

That was resolved. Which is why he played in 2014.

You do realize that the current Lakers dynamic is a tad bit different from the setup of Team USA, right?
