WATCH: What’s been going wrong with Team USA in exhibition play ahead of the Tokyo Olympics?

·1 min read

Why has Team USA struggled so much in exhibition games so far despite having far and away the most talent on paper of any team competing in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics?

After dropping two of their first three friendlies held in Las Vegas, Nevada before losing a pair of stars to USA Basketball’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols, is it fair to wonder whether the U.S. National team will medal at all, never mind take home the Gold? And what is behind the non-viral problems the team has been dealing with against ostensibly less-talented squads?

New England sports journalist emeritus Bob Ryan and NBA analyst John Goodman tackle exactly these questions in the latest edition of their eponymous CLNS Media podcast.

Check it out for yourself in the video embedded above to hear them troubleshoot Team USA, talk NBA Finals, and more.
