That is unfortunate... I know Griffin was dragging that knee during the playoffs which he incurred during the Memphis series. Hope it is nothing serious...

Damn, I was glad when he made the cut. I think Ginger would be exposed in the FIBA basketball style of play. Anthony Davis is worse for the rest of the world because if he's such a defensive stud, he can produce in FIBA.

Damn, bummed for him and bummed for the Olympic squad. He's always an entertaining player to watch and we're severely lacking frontcourt depth on Team USA.

I can't stand the guy because he's a flopping [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.], but I would never wish injury on him. Hopefully he's ok.

Yep it's not looking good at all. Pau alone is quite a bit better than any of the bigs we already have and then add his brother and Serge?

Is LO in shape?

And Calderon will try to guard CP3, Navarro (assuming he starts) will try to guard Kobe, and Fernandez/Lull will try to guard KD/LeBron.. LOL Team USA is going to win no doubt in my mind.. Melo is coming off the bench for Christ sake.. Deron Williams is the backup PG :man10: There's no way the US doesn't win.

LeBron guarded Pau pretty effectively last time we played the cHeat, I don't see why he can't do that again (unless Pau becomes a different man -than the one we saw being denied of the ball every single possession by LeBron- with his national team)

Spain can't guard LeBron, Durant and Kobe. That's going to be more than enough.

Lebron can guard Pau... but not in FIBA basketball. He'll foul out in the first half :man9:

Blake is a doucher, but I hate to see him get injured, especially before the olympics. Our frontline was already small as is.

Apparently I also read a tweet a couple of hours ago saying that Blake woke up with a lot of swelling and discomfort in the knee.

Not good at all for Clipper Nation especially after he just signed his huge extension yesterday.

Anyone catch that remark of Pau's yesterday in an interview for the USA Team Scrimmage coverage on NBA TV? He was asked how playing on the Spanish team was different than the nba, and he said that he loved playing on the national team because at least there everyone was ACTUALLY friendly with each other.

Tongue in cheek?

This may be a stupid question as I'm not following this closely, but Is Kevin Love not available?
