Listen to Chris Broussard deliver an enlightening monologue on the four reasons why he believes the United States Men’s Basketball Team has struggled at the ongoing Summer Games in Tokyo, as Team USA has already shockingly lost two exhibition games to Nigeria and Australia, and dropped their group play opener with France.
The United States has been one of the greatest juggernauts in the world when it comes to basketball, posting a 138-5 all-time record in Olympic play heading into these Games.
The 1992 ‘Dream Team’, which featured 12 Hall of Famers, started the trend of American ultra-dominance, winning the gold medal in Barcelona with an average margin of victory of 51.5.
The USA would go on to win the gold in 1996, 2000, 2008, 2012, and 2016.
Even with a top-flight cast of First-Team All-NBA players the likes of Kevin Durant and Damian Lillard, NBA Finals standouts Khris Middleton and Devin Booker, budding superstars like Zach Lavine and Jayson Tatum, and respected champions Draymond Green and Jrue Holiday, USA is still losing to international teams boasting zero NBA All-Stars.
Check out the intelligent segment above as Chris details why it’s gone so horribly wrong for the Americans in Japan.
