Has great length. He played D this summer and I expect a lot more from him at that end now that he has other scorers to take the load off of him at the other end.

When Booker leads his team anywhere than we can talk about him. Until than he's just empty stats

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George both said Sunday they wanted to do it. On Friday, Anthony Davis was a yes and LeBron James a maybe. What’s all of this mean to the man responsible for piecing together Team USA’s roster? “The reality is the World Cup, although it’s very big around the world, it doesn’t have the same status in the States,” Team USA managing director Jerry Colangelo told The Athletic. “Our focus is apparently on the Olympics, and I expected a different response.” – via The Athletic

Davis, George, Leonard, Harden, Green, Curry, Klay, Lillard, Mitchell.

Matt Velasquez: Khris Middleton says he won’t say no if he’s invited to play for Team USA again next summer in the Olympics. Things didn’t go the way any of them wanted at the World Cup, but he’s open to returning. – via Twitter Matt_Velazquez

He wasn't that good this year

Xiao still in here pathetically defending what anyone with a basketball brain knew would be the absolute worst American team with professionals ever.

Faced average at best competition, and still finished pathetically. That’s what you get with a team of one lone non perennial All Star who is an undersized purely score first isolation guard.

Mitchell and Kemba both are the only players from that team who could crack top 25 in the league individual rankings. And they barely do that.

Our squad featured NO top fifteen or even top fifteen American players. No wonder we got curb stomped in pathetic fashion.
