    Ngl Olympic basketball is pretty boring to watch, the commentary sucks and whenever USA plays it's 99% going to be a 50 point win (at least)

    Reason I support the Dubs is I visited San Francisco and LA in the summer of 2009. Fell in love with San Francisco, LA not so much. Decided to support their baseball team (San Francisco Giants).

    Next year (Summer of 2010) I visited family in Vancouver who got me into ice hockey. Naturally, I decided to start following the San Jose Sharks (As they're the San Francisco Bay Area ice hockey team).

    I then got slightly bored with ice hockey and so decided to branch out to the other sports in the US. Didn't actually follow the NBA for another couple of years, with 2012/13 season being my first for it and so again, I chose the team from the Bay Area, so Golden State. NFL came last, first season being the 2014 season. So naturally I followed and chose the 49ers.

    So that's the roundabout way I ended up with Golden State.

    Let's see why do I support okc?

    Well, originally I was a neutral fan and I'd watch random games. But I was following KD in college and decided that he was my favourite player, Seattle started him, became okc and here we are.

    Although I will continue to support okc even though he left. A real fan sees both the ups and downs of the team. I'm not just a bandwagoner.

    Apparently Delly had 10 assists too lol? Be pretty hilarious if he has a break out summer and becomes a much better player straight off leaving the Cavs

    I think he finished with 11, was very impressive the whole game primarily as australia played proper team basketball on the whole. USA shot terribly all game tbh, apart from melo who had 31 and hit 9/15 3s. USA had their normal weakness of being over reliant on individual players offensively, but tbh I can't see them having another game where someone like durant goes like 2/12 from 2pt range so they should be fine, but just showed they're not invincible.
