On July 25, in the Tokyo Olympic men’s basketball game, the American men’s basketball team lost 76-83 to France. Taking into account the warm-up before the Olympic Games, the American men’s basketball team lost 3 of the last 5 games, while the American men’s basketball team under Popovich’s guidance won only 11 of the 17 games, which is far from the name of the dream team.
The athletic reporter Joe Walden revealed that the players of the American men’s basketball team were very disappointed with Popovich“ Popovich was frightened by his coaching results, “Walden wrote“ He cares about these failures and is very uncomfortable. The players of the American men’s basketball team were also disappointed. On the way back to the dressing room, they complained that Popovich still used the Spurs’ attack system in the American team. They thought the team had a better way to play. ”
Yesterday’s loss to France was the first time the American men’s basketball team scored less than 80 points in 56 Olympic Games since 1992.
After the game, Popovich said: “if you lose a game, you won’t be surprised, you will only be disappointed. I don’t quite understand the word ‘surprise’. The word doesn’t respect the opponents. It seems to say that we can win them by 30 points. France is a very excellent team.”
