Serbia's Basketball Coach Says We Need God's Help If We Play Them - Must Have Forgot Team USA Is Still Too Big, Too Strong, Too Fast, Too American

I’m sorry, you think we need to pray to God if the US plays Serbia? The US basketball team? The one that has dominated international play for the last 25+ years. Have you forgotten the important thing here

And yes, I know that’s from the hockey team originally, but you know what? I’m applying it to this Team USA basketball team. Everyone thinks we’re sending our C/D team (which we are pretty close to doing) but guess what? We’re still better than you. We still have too much talent. We still have a guy like De’Aaron Fox that can do this

Let’s not forget this either. The US has played Serbia in the last two gold medal games (2016 Olympics and 2014 FIBA World Cup). You know what happened in those games? US won 96-66 in the Olympics and 129-92 in the World Cup.

And for my money Serbia is the 2nd best team in the country. I love their players. Milos Teodosic is one of the more fun offensive players in the world. They have Nikola Jokic and Boban and Bogdanovic. But guess what? We’re still No. 1. So you don’t say we need God’s help if we meet, I tell you that you need God’s help if we meet. I say that even if I’m terrified of you, because a Serbian is one of the last people I’d want to piss off.

US by a billion.
