And if Spain should win by hook or by crook.

There's no way Ndour can guard Charles, Griner, or Wilson.

They will have a field day against her.

What in hades? I didn't even notice that. I need to go home and watch the game and watch the spectacular Canadian implosion. Such a contrast to their comeback victory over France.

I'm secretly hoping that Emma torches the United States after some comments indicating that she's not in the same galaxy as some of these American players. Bulletin board material. Perfect.


Be PRECISE with your response. I said that Emma IS not in the same

galaxy as A'ja Wilson in the PAINT!!! English reading comprehension

must be an AFTERTHOUGHT in your micron mind.

Lets make a bet. When Team USA sends Belgium home, you will post

A'ja as your Avatar picture until Jan 1st 2019. Deal?


Easy, big fella ...

No need to insult anyone. Your input is great and most welcome, but making it personal is not the way to go.

Belgium taking it to the Americans. 26-21 after 1. These Americans just don't have an answer for Emma Meeseman who's clearly isn't in the same galaxy as Aja Wilson. Rolling Eyes

I'm just going to leave this here.

Emma Meeseman 23pts, 9/15 shooting (60%), 5/5 from the line, 6 rebounds 2 assists.

Aja Wilson 0/2 FG 2 turnovers.


Whoops. While I agree that Aja Wilson is very good, it's a disservice to Emma Meeseman to claim that she's not in the same galaxy. Consider that Meeseman did this against a team with a bunch of WNBA MVP's and was just outstanding on both ends of the court.

As Myrtle said, depth took its toll on Belgium. Maybe the United States should only be allowed to take a roster of eight players instead of 11 to make it fair. Laughing

You stated:

Emma had a great game, probably the best game she has ever or ever

will play.

So tell me LOUDMOUTH, what happened to Belgium?

You stated:

"Excellent plan! I like this plan! Go Australia/Spain! Avenge Belgium!"

And based on this statement, you sound like an anti-American POS.

And while you try to formulate a response, please do tell us who your

national team is. That way we can compare your national team's accomp-

lishments to Team USA in International Basketball at the junior and senior

levels.

I mean, okay, but in this very same tournament, Anete Šteinberga put 30 on the United States, so I wouldn't read too much into that. Let's not forget that Yelena Leuchanka has been dominant in FIBA play, and she's very scrubalicious, compared to WNBA talent. Don't overlook the role that Meeseman's usage rate on the Belgian NT plays in that kind of output.

5th place
France 81 - China 67

7th place
Canada 73 - Nigeria 72

Canada barely gets by Nigeria to secure 7th place. So close to a medal earlier and now barely getting 7th.

So the USA wins with half their team being newbies even though better talent opted to sit out. Replace half this squad with Diggins, McCoughtry, Moore, Fowles, Gray and DeShields.

Tuck was a COMPLETE waste of a roster spot. As for Plum & Clarendon,

place them in the, lets see how much you can grow your game by 2020.

It is time to transition to a new roster. No players over 30 for the 2020

Olympics, that eliminates McCoughtry & Fowles.

The Tokyo Olympic Games must be the LAST tournament for Elena Delle

Donne F- age 29/31, Tina Charles C - age 29/31, Nneka Ogwumike F age

- 28/30. Brittney Griner C - age 27/29 should be good until the 2022 FIBA

Women's World Cup.

Congratulations to Dawn Staley, the players, staff and USA Basketball.

Yes, the US is heavily favored in these events, and for good reason, but that doesn't mean winning a tournament like this just happens. It takes work, focus, effort and concentration, especially given how little time the team has together.

This run of dominance by the U.S. women is one of the most phenomenal in international sports, despite all the inherent American advantages.

And lastly, a special shoutout to Carol Callan, who is the common denominator in all this success ...

LOL Mr. Cam, your Ms. Aja the MVP didn't even make FIBA Top 5 All Star whereas Emma was. Aja wasn't even one of the top 5 on her team.....she looked like on average Jane ON TEAM USA! Only against the cupcakes does she put up decent stats..

I mean, damn you for putting me in the position where I have to stand on the same side of an issue as that obnoxious tool, but you're all the way wrong on this: Wilson's performance relative to those players on other national teams was entirely a function of usage. Nothing more, and nothing less. Meeseman isn't putting up those numbers on a team where she doesn't have to average 15 shots a game, as the focal point of an offense, and you're kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

What I mean is Aja puts up decent numbers on Team USA when they are playing exhibition games or blowouts..but in the big games where they could actually use her, she hasn't been much of a factor. I'm not even mentioning the WNBA, I thought this was a FIBA thread..

Im too lazy to find out but i wouldnt be suprised if Wilson took more shots per 36 min then Emma. Whenever Wilson was in the game(group games for sure) Usa made her the go to player in the paint.

But yeah Wilson has really impressed me with her rookie season and she put up great numbers against other great posts

Name GP MPG PPG EFF EFFPG PM PMPG

26. Bec Allen (AUS)‎ 6 22.0 8.8 65.0 10.8 60.0 10.0
Diana Taurasi (USA)‎ 6 21.9 12.2 65.0 10.8 62.0 10.3
A'Ja Wilson (USA)‎ 6 14.8 10.0 65.0 10.8 56.0 9.3

If you are going to try and demean A'ja Wilson as a player, by means
demean Diana Taurasi as well. But then again, I do not believe that
you have the intellectual discipline or honesty to render an objective analysis.

I have already stated in one or two previous posts that Team USA
SUCKS DONKEY BALLS in soccer. However, Holland has NO excuses
for not even QUALIFYING for the 2018 World Cup. And Germany has
TEN times the shame than Oranje has for CRASHING out of the World
Cup after their dominant run to the World Cup Title in 2014. Now, chew
on that and tell me how it tastes

Even limiting the discussion to FIBA, you're still comparing apples and bananas. Wilson was the ninth woman in an eight-woman rotation; her production was exactly where it should have been. She still shot 52.5 percent from the field, and had good efficiency and +/-, relative to her usage rate.

If you're going to compare Wilson to someone on Belgium, you have to compare her to someone whose role on that team was comparable to hers, and that wouldn't be Emma Meeseman, it would be Jana Raman. Meeseman averaged just under fifteen shots a game for Belgium: nobody on USAB shot as many as twelve. It's completely disingenuous to compare the production of those two players, as if they had the same responsibilities to their respective team's offenses.

Cupcakes? You mean cupcakes like Breanna Stewart, Brittney Griner, Elizabeth Cambage, Chiney Ogwumike and Candace Parker, against all of whom she put up monster numbers in the WNBA, home of the best women's basketball in the world? Those cupcakes?

I mean, damn you for putting me in the position where I have to stand on the same side of an issue as that obnoxious tool, but you're all the way wrong on this: Wilson's performance relative to those players on other national teams was entirely a function of usage. Nothing more, and nothing less. Meeseman isn't putting up those numbers on a team where she doesn't have to average 15 shots a game, as the focal point of an offense, and you're kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

What I mean is Aja puts up decent numbers on Team USA when they are playing exhibition games or blowouts..but in the big games where they could actually use her, she hasn't been much of a factor. I'm not even mentioning the WNBA, I thought this was a FIBA thread..


Name GP MPG PPG EFF EFFPG PM PMPG

26. Bec Allen (AUS)‎ 6 22.0 8.8 65.0 10.8 60.0 10.0
Diana Taurasi (USA)‎ 6 21.9 12.2 65.0 10.8 62.0 10.3
A'Ja Wilson (USA)‎ 6 14.8 10.0 65.0 10.8 56.0 9.3

If you are going to try and demean A'ja Wilson as a player, by means
demean Diana Taurasi as well. But then again, I do not believe that
you have the intellectual discipline or honesty to render an objective analysis.

Yeah, don't come on this board and bash other players and attempt to pick them apart because you are the one who can't give props objectively. A'ja this, A'ja that...I'm not hating..I'm just saying, you have her down as the best post player in the world and it's not even close....she has a ways to go.

I don't think A'ja would be too happy with MrCam. He put quite the jinx on her with his big statements. She was almost a negative for her team in the important stages of the tournament.
(Not that that changes what an impressive first WNBA season she had, but it sure highlighted some differences between club and international ball)

LOL @ you FOOL!!!

Silky strikes again. Read what this man wrote about about
A'ja. The written comments on A'ja reflects EXACTLY what
Silky said.

http://www.fiba.basketball/news/the-players-and-coaches-who-impressed-me-most-at-the-fibawwc

Read it and then send him a tweet telling him that you LOL @ his
opinions. But remember one thing, he is a PAID & PUBLISHED
basketball sports journalist. Who pays YOU for your rantings?
What recognized sports/basketball entity employs YOU for
your basketball "knowledge". So, put the crack pipe down &
pipe down.

The bolding is nice for occasional emphasis of an important point, but unbolded text is much easier to read, especially if you have a lot to say.

I think this article emphasized players he didn’t expect to do well in the tournament. He knew Meesseman would do well, as well as Stewart, Taurasi, Cambage, Torrens, etc. Meesseman had just recently won Euroleague tournament MVP. No surprise she did well in World Cup.

This author is the same guy who was saying WNBA GM’s were fools to not take Vadeeva above whatever American college player, even Wilson. I think he had Musina up there ridiculously high too. So he wasn’t exactly glowing about her then, and adding her to this article just meant he wasn’t expecting a great performance, but he is relenting now to save some face.

"Shades"

Your assessment is excellent.

It was not my intent to present Paul Nilsen as the end all and be
all of International Basketball analysis. Because when he wrote
this article:

https://www.bluestarmedia.org/europeans-mocking-the-wnba-2018-draft-as-it-underlines-the-lack-of-global-game-view-stateside/

I could not believe the level of STUPIDITY contained in that article.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58fRV2Wn3KI

Is this FINAL, A'ja Wilson kicked Vadeeva's ass with a 55 gallon
drum of industrial grade whup-ass. And A'ja did it in RUSSIA!!!

Vadeeva and Wilson BOTH had their rookie WNBA seasons in
2018.

But in Vadeeva's rookie WNBA season, what did you accomp-
lish? NOTHING!!! - She was a BENCH WARMER.

Russia FAILED to qualify for the FIBA Women's Basketball World
Cup 2018. WHY??? Russia placed NINTH in FIBA EuroBasket Wo-
men 2017. Vadeeva's stats in EFF http://www.fiba.basketball/eurobasketwomen/2017/qualifiers/playerstats

Paul Nilsen's praise means that Vadeeva should have carried
Russia at least to THIRD place, but NINTH????

Interesting article for those interested in FIBA's future scheduling
plans for Women's Nationals Teams

MrCam, why the unnecessary vitriol? We get that you're passionate and that you're a big fan of America ... and you have valuable insights.

So why tarnish your message with the personal insults?
