The case for Avery Bradley as an Olympian

The case for Avery Bradley as an Olympian

Earlier today, I made a suggestion over on the Olympic Basketball Blog.  Rather than the NBA push for some insane 23-and-under rule for the Olympics, it can accomplish its goals by sending two separate men’s national teams to the Olympics and the NBA’s new baby, the World Cup of Basketball.

Here’s a tweet from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski: Finally, I asked Batum if he felt like his [...]

Hubris makes this Team USA unlikeable

Hubris makes this Team USA unlikeable
