Zeller named to USA Basketball Select Team

Not to be negative but, why?

If the truth sounds negative, it's still the truth.

The truth behind "why" is understanding that he hasn't he done much in the NBA.

Two Plumlees made it.

Miles had a great year last season. I

I think coach K is trying to build the team with players that fit his system. I

And I think K wanted the Plumlees on the team because he knows them. 

 

Don't act like he's above favoritism.

It's the select team...basically the guys who Coach K knows will come in, bust their ass, and hustle after the actual Olympic guys. Why would the Plums or Zeller make the team? K is familiar with them, they'll hustle, yada yada. Not to mention there aren't many American big guys willing and able to fill these roles I'd imagine. 

 

 

 

 

Also, they're white and he's Duke's coach. Amirite?

    • As long as he lets his football people deal with football operations that's great. We don't want to get into a Jerry Jones situation though.
    • Yeah the problem with our "education" lottery is that the state decided to use the lottery revenues not as additional funds but as a replacement for tax dollars previously earmarked for education. The lottery would have been a great boost to the education system in NC, however the legislators did exactly what they said they would not do, and used it as a replacement instead.  Actually the strip is arguably more depressing than the rest of Vegas. It's an urban area, so there are obviously some downtrodden places, especially since they were one of the hardest hit areas after the housing crisis. But there are DEFINITIVELY a lot of very nice areas outside the strip. Go to North Vegas or old downtown. It's like any other city, plenty of great food and lots of things to do. And, yes, I have been there. The negatives about gambling are the same negatives that will exist regardless of the legality. The fact is that some people will go broke and get addicted to gambling, whether legal or not. Just because some people lack self control should not condemn some pretty harmless entertainment. As I said earlier, make sure there are ample safety nets in place to assist gambling addicts and you deal with that issue in that manner. There would be plenty of revenue to fund that. Heck, make it a requirement that each institution has to give a percentage to such services. I would be fine with that, as well. 
    • And MLS...Tepper seems determined to get a team.
