    I’ll root for Utah against any team other than the Grizzlies, but don’t think we necessarily owe them any loyalty. Conley, however, has earned goodwill in Memphis for the rest of his career. Hopefully he gets nothing but love whenever he’s in Memphis.

    Yup, figured he was making way more $ playing in China and it was a personal choice. Just crazy no team would pick him up for a playoff run (like GSW did with a Bogut). Think he could chip in some valuable minutes in certain matchups. Regardless, it’s neat seeing a guy his age completely ball out for his country the way he has. The vibe around the Argentinian team is neat to watch.

    Amazing that Scola can be a total beast in this tournament and can’t even be a 15th man in the NBA (unless he chooses to play elsewhere). Scola vs. Gasol will be a treat the Final. Also curious how Suns will look with Rubio as their first competent point guard in a while. Other takeaway for me is that Jazz May be actual contenders with their mix of guys. I’d love nothing more than to see Conley win a championship while we undergo our rebuild.
  4. Those tweets from Shams are so horribly biased. I'm all for buying out Iguodala if he's willing to give up a good chunk of $, but the media manipulation in getting players away from small markets and to big markets is ridiculous.

    As chip said, 34 pts and 9 rebounds - here's some highlights: A lot of nice drives to the basket with shots off the dribble. Good use of the offhand on one of the plays as well. Almost everything in the midrange and at the basket.

    Looks like Yuta had himself quite the game against Montenegro.

    Thanks; seems ESPN+ has the rights in the US, because I just checked and the livebasketball site has the following: "*Unavailable in Australia and USA. Other geo-restrictions may apply." So probably just ESPN getting greedy and trying to get people to sign up for ESPN+ unfortunately.

    https://www.sportsmediawatch.com/fiba-basketball-world-cup-tv-schedule-espn/ Looks like we may only get the winner's knockout bracket (thus all the TBDs). Pretty disappointing.

    When will games start being shown on TV? I know there are probably some, uhh, streams I could find online but I’m surprised some of these games haven’t even been on ESPN 2 or ESPN News.

    Not necessarily. Even in 2012 and 2016, the U.S. had some close calls against a few teams. I think the gap has closed quite a bit.

    Heads up play using the FIBA rules to swat away that last free throw as well. Only saw highlights, but he seemed to make some good plays.
  12. Oof. Seeing all the names listed in one place really reinforces my hope that we get a high draft pick this year. I’d love for one (or more) of these guys to surprise me this season, but the current talent level of our wings at first look is discouraging.

    😋 the formatting was a bit difficult to follow, but appreciate you pulling together. Going to take some time to read through this as it's nice to have all the info collected in one spot.

    It's counting two earlier championships before they were in the NBA: The team was founded in Fort Wayne, Indiana as the Fort Wayne (Zollner) Pistons in 1941, a member of the National Basketball League (NBL) where it won two NBL championships: in 1944 and 1945. The Pistons later joined the Basketball Association of America (BAA) in 1948. The NBL and BAA merged to become the NBA in 1949, and the Pistons became part of the merged league.
