Long season...2020 and 2021 were nearly back to back. The stars don't get their ref calls in international games. Other teams want to win, the US players want to promote themselves and go to the club and find women. The olympics are a step down for them and too restrictive since they don't get a mansion to stay in. A few players may get it, but most are half heartedly showing up.

I used to love the NBA, especially the playoffs, but it is unwatchable now. These other countries play the game the right way. Maybe, USA could learn something about team ball and fundamentals. Less about egos, launching 3’s

These other countries still play organized team basketball. Our guys just don’t have that discipline. Much rather watch real basketball like played in college and the international.
