We honestly haven’t had much desire to read or think about Team USA’s loss to France and certainly none to cast aspersions or find blame.

The guys who went played hard and did their level best. Of that we have no doubt whatsoever. Nor would we dream on ripping on Gregg Popovich. A true patriot and a good if cantankerous man, Popovich did the best he could with a limited hand.

We do hope that the guys who pulled out - all of whom had their reasons and none of whom were even slightly obligated to compete - nonetheless see what happened and are planning to make a difference in the Olympics.

Here are some links to go over as we lick our collective wounds and start to prepare for 2020.
