Then today, they were blown out by Australia… And yes, I will say blown out!
Is this going to be what we see from them come the Olympics? It is hard to see them off to a tough start when you have 12 of the best 15 players in the Olympics… But the US has struggled since Coach K stepped down. Not saying Gregg Popovich is a bad Team USA coach, but he needs to be better with rotating and getting these guys to play together and finding the right line up. But his slow start does raise some eyebrows.
Team USA was 54-0 in exhibition games since 1992. They are 0-2 in the last 3 days.

And it’s not like you can use the “they don’t have good players” excuse, especially when they are literally the best players in the world. Hopefully they can come out and beat Argentina tomorrow. But they do kick off their Olympic schedule with France which will be a tough game.
I think Team USA will figure it out and still win gold, but they need to start playing or else they are in trouble come July 25.
