Those of you who were caught up with the college football action and get high off obscene amounts of Patriotism and athleticism, you missed a thriller at the FIBA World Cup. Team USA beat Finland in a game not too far apart from playing NBA 2K14 at the lowest difficulty setting. The final score was 114-55 (59 points!).
So maybe don't expect that big of a blowout in future games, but there should be a lot more Ws coming through. There's hopefully should be more Derrick Rose highlights, too, like this cut and dash to the rim that made Finland look like they belong in the neighborhood rec center waiting to call next.
Better yet, let's hope Rose has now. The FIBA World Cup may not mean all that much, but it's a solid tune-up. That's especially the case fo an injury-riddled Rose, who's hoping to reassert himself as the one league's best guards in the fall.
