    Guess he didn't have fun.

    In all seriousness, hopefully this means he also wants to work with Westbrook to develop that chemistry.

    With Gordon and now Harden withdrawing from Team USA....this seems noteworthy now. We'll see if Tucker stays with Team USA still though.

    It's a contract year, I didn't expect him to play.

    Good, all in on the Rockets. Team USA and all that stuff is nothing compared to an NBA championship.

    Very unpatriotic of the Rockets players. They will not be invited to the White House when/if they win the championship.

    ;)

    Monetarily I would estimate somewhere between 500k and 1 million dollars each if the team wins gold. On top of that you would be repping your country, attaining new foreign fans, getting a gold medal or ring or whatever they give out to the victors, and of course the biggest incentive of them all a trip to the white house to meet the president.

    Not too shabby for technically* 2 weeks worth of work considering I don't know when team USA practices begin.

    Anyone know who else from our team will be participating in FIBA WC? Is Tucker on team USA? I know for sure Capela will be on Switzerland which sucks because we need Westbrook working with Capela on that alley-oop pass

    Tucker needs to withdraw ASAP, his body cannot handle this.

    Team USA is no longer fun. The fun analyst has spoken.
