    No one probably watching this, but we're off to a good start after a 114-55 drubbing of Finland. Team definitely playing better than years past since we have a good D coach in Thibs.

    How much will this roster look like the Olympic one two years from now?

    Some of them will obviously play their way on to it. I'd say half. Then again, if the NBA has their way, the olympics will become under 23 mirroring soccer.

    The Brazil/Spain game was rather entertaining. They almost had to get the pads and helmets out it got so rough in spots. It score was close until Noah's new Bull teammate started bombing. Gasol hit 4 threes in a row to put the game away. I'm sure Coach Thibodeau didn't know he was getting a three point shooter. If he goes off like that when team USA plays Spain it could make it real interesting
