Got to go to the finals of the US Gymnastics trials this weekend since it was in town, it was pretty interesting to see what you can and can't pick out in person in terms of recognizing difficulty and execution compared to TV with someone pointing it out along the way. Keep an eye on Simone Biles, think she could maybe do well in Tokyo.

No idea what thread this should be in, but USA basketball loses an exhibition to Nigeria in Las Vegas. Nigeria were 30 point underdogs coming into the game.

Lavine was in at the end of the game and was fouled with 3.5 seconds left down 3. He missed the first FT and then the second on purpose, pretty much ended the game.

The olympics has too many sports - do we really need 3v3 basketball as well as regular basketball?

Anyway, not a fan of olympics on the other side of the date line as I can never figure out when things are happening or avoid knowing the results before the broadcast . . . too confusing! yes, I'm a whiner.

The US Men don't need 3v3. They lost to the Netherlands and will not qualify.

Yikes. Even without NBA players that seems embarrassing. I guess it does sound like a more volatile game since it's shorter.

One of the players is Ricky Barry's son who apparently shoots free throws underhand, like his old man.

Hey Toyota, where was that semblance of social responsibility when it came to political donations?

Maybe the novelty would wear off, but whenever I watch handball at the olympics I feel like it should be a lot more popular in the US.

So the US men’s basketball team is playing right now yet it’s not being televised? What kind of stupidity is this? But women’s 3x3 basketball is being hyped as next on NBC. Lol.

Pretty sure you can stream it on Peacock, though no idea if they paywalled it. I’d bet a lot they will show it on a major channel later today when they can get more eyeballs on it, that’s just how NBC handles the timezones for these.

No interest in trying to stream it and no need to watch it later when I already know the outcome.
