The USA lost in a game against Serbia today and will play for the 7th spot on the World Cup against Poland. Despite not having their best players, a lot of people expected that the USA would at least make it to the semi-finals, however, it seems the rest of world caught up and international teams are better than ever before. After today’s loss Myles Turner had nothing but respect for his teammates who showed up after others decided to skip this tournament.
Turner who is one of the best two-way centers in the NBA, played in limited minutes in this tournament, averaging only 7.7 points per game. However, as for Turner and his teammates, this tournament was a great learning experience that will definitely have a positive impact on the development of their careers.
“From 1-12 top to bottom this team this roster has sacrificed so much for our nation. our summers, our bodies, our mental. We came up short can’t nobodies more upset than us but I refuse to tolerate any Slander for our play you cannot question our heart
Our character, or are spirit we layed it all out on the line each and every game. Don’t disrespect us this coaching staff or USA Basketball as a whole but respect the world basketball is an international game these countries are talented
JB, Khris, JT, Dmitch, Mason, Marcus, Kemba, D White, BrooK, HB, Joe it’s been an honor I’d go to war with any of these fellas any given night. #Godspeed fellas let’s head home with a Dub ??
We’re also the ones who stepped up to the plate when others stepped down. We qualified our nation for the Olympics we got some work to do to rebuild a legacy that was left before us were on the wrong side of history indeed. But that’s gonna make the next medal that much sweeter!”
