IF MASON PLUMLEE MAKES TEAM USA OVER DEMARCUS COUSINS I AM MOVING TO CANADA

Word out of Team USA training camp is Mason Plumlee is likely to make the team over DeMarcus Cousins. I can’t believe I just typed those words.

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst tweeted the rumor this evening, shortly after Boogie told reporters he is very satisfied with the way he played at camp. If Boogie believes he played well, then he played well, and there isn’t enough talent in the entire Plumlee family tree for Mason to beat him out for that spot.

Unbelievable.

    Easy to believe as Coach K will choose his Dookie guy. Unfortunately life is not always fair.

    Fug that rat-faced bastard. Hopefully Cal is still in Vegas so he can let K know in person how much of a homer piece of shizz he is

    While Coach K has every right to pick who he wants for his team! The
    other players should have some say in the matter as well! If it were me,
    I would want the very best players to give the best chance possible of
    winning!
    If K politicizes the selection, the others should take matters into their own
    hands! I would revolt!

      Agreed. If Coach K starts showing Duke loyalty over choosing the best players, the players should revolt. And team USA brass may want to rethink having him as the coach. His school loyalty/politics could cause some top players to pass on playing for this team. They will likely not go public with it being because of Coach K. In stead they will create convenient excuses. Nursing an injury., focusing on the upcoming NBA season, etc.

    That would just be absurd. Homerism at its finest. If that happens, I’m sure there would be no media outrage. Ratface will be applauded for taking guys who “fit” & someone will make up some nonsense and claim Boogie is immature.

    Go ahead & choose Irving over Wall too, Ratface. I’ll find another country to root for.



    • ZombieLibrarian
      9:41 pm July 31, 2014 Permalink

      I would not take Irving over Wall, but you could make a reasonable argument for doing so.

      There is nothing close to a reasonable argument for taking Plumlee over Cousins. You could even have a hard time rationalizing Plumlee being on the squad that scrimmages against Team USA.

    Plumlee career stats: 7.4 pts/ 4.4 rbds. Not even “solid”.

    Cousins has way more talent, but let’s face it, he still has maturity issues and is a loose cannon…

      See post #8 above. At 46 I am likely considerably more mature than a preponderance of NBA players yet you wouldn’t even pick me for a game of HORSE.

    I have no interest in olympic basketball. It is a farce. I refuse to watch and can not remember the last time I watched it. I would rather watch a cow eat grass, than spend time watching olympic basketball. I care for soccer less than that. I will stick to college and nfl football and mens college and pro basketball.

    Ps…I would watch the highlights of an olympic game, if it had a former Kentucky player in it. Other than that, I have no interest.

    It’s a no-brainer. Every NBA exec would take Plumlee’s measly 7 points and 4 rebounds over Cousins’ 23 and 12 any day of the week. I hear Coach K is going to take Wojo or Wall as well.

    The guy with a questionable temper who lead the NBA in fouls and technical fouls last season might not be selected to represent his country in the FIBA World Cup Games? I’m *SHOCKED* Don’t get me wrong. I love Big Cuz, but this isn’t exactly a surprise. Yeah it sucks that an inferior Plumblee might get the nod over him, but what did you really expect?

    • rainman

      I would expect the coach representing this country to put the best team possible on the floor, in order to win every game possible!
      Does Plumlee fit that bill, NO!



    • Bledsoe's Biceps
      9:16 pm July 31, 2014 Permalink

      Weak argument and overplayed. Fouls and technical fouls have little or nothing to do with the players selected. Past participants included plenty of players with “issues”, on and off the court. If this happens it is simply Coach K being a homer.

      YES THEY SHOULD !!! GETTING THE THREE OF THOSE TALENTS TO PLAY TOGETHER AGAIN WILL BE THE STORY OF THE GAME !!! COACH K IS JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE HE HASN’T GOT ANYTHING IN HIS PUKIE DUKIE TEAMS TO EVEN COME CLOSE TO THE “WILDCAT BROTHERS” HE DAMN SURE BETTER NOT BREAK UP THE BROTHER’S OVER SOME NO-TALENT DUMBLEE PLUMLEE !! THAT IS AN INSULT TO AMERICA ! WE WANT OUR BEST AND THE BROTHER’S #3 ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD !!! NO DOUBT ABOUT IT !!! KICK THAT COACH OFF THE TEAM AND GET SOMEBODY TO COACH THEM THAT IS BETTER! HE AIN’T THAT GREAT !!! GIVE SOMEONE ELSE A CHANCE TO COACH TEAM USA !!! BILLY D. FROM FLORIDA ! ANYBODY BUT THAT BONEHEAD FROM PUKE !!! GO BIG D. GO USA!! WE WAITING FOR OUR WILDCATS TO KICK SOME BUTT !!!! # BBN4EVER!!!!

    If Plumblee makes it over cousins.. That’s terrible.. But it’s going to be really terrible when Coach K says he did it because Plumblee is the better team player and person



    • rainman
      8:52 pm July 31, 2014 Permalink

      And how will he explain it if we don’t win?



  21. JLP
    8:49 pm July 31, 2014 Permalink

    Actually, if I were Plumlee I would tell coach K to not put me in over Boogie. He must know he will be analyzed, scrutinized, criticized and snicker-ized. I wouldn’t want a spot given to me that I couldn’t earn on my own because the coach liked me.



  22. obviously
    8:52 pm July 31, 2014 Permalink

    There is a logical explanation for all of this. With Love out off the team who will the token white guy be. This is where plumblebee comes in to play, well I doubt there will be any playing but you get the point.

    We want the best players on the team. Period. We want pros who have been in the bigs and have come away as the best grabber of rebounds and technicals in the league! I vote Cousins! Duke sucks!

    If recent history says anything, Coach K knows how to pick a losing team. Maybe Plumlee can help USA lose by the three like all of K’s teams. Maybe he is as crazy as Bobby Knight!

    O darn is a big nerd is what I got from this… First he is beyond help if he thought his “gotcha’s” were even close to creative or clever. Second because a player gets a block on someone doesn’t really mean shit unless its Anthony Davis swatting John Henson to win a game. Lastly O darn is about as “cool” as Coach K picking Plumdumb over Boogie. There’s my post for the month. Oh and if I made any grammatical errors its probably because your mom is smoking my pole. GO CATS!!!!!

    DREW

    I know you are a man of your word since you are from KENTUCKY! I will buy you a pack of Jim David’s Ham from down here in Morganfield, KY for your travels.. I doubt you would just put a headline on here to get people to read!!!

    I hate to say it but Team USA doesn’t need Boogs! They will play these little tourney’s to get warmed up for the Olympics.. Then LOVE, LEBRON, and all the rest of the big boys will be on TEAM USA for the actual Olympic Games!!

    I hate to say this as well but when you have those guys joining you in the future you don’t need COUSINS! He is one of the best centers in the league but he also plays with so so talent in SAC.. He would be playing with the best of the best and sometimes you already have Scoring.. JAMES, LOVE, DURANT… You need talent down low that won’t have a bad attitude or get mad when he doesn’t get the ball 20 times a game.. You need someone like Plumlee that is very very athletic and will sacrifice his stats for the greater good of the team.. You in a since need a rim protector..

    Case in Point…. MIAMI HEAT VS SPURS 2014?!?!

    The article I read said that he punched a padded wall in practice , and that they needed someone who they could trust and not foul out, it could be a cop out, the article said that there’s no question who is better Talent wise but didn’t know if Cuz could be trusted not to foul out!! Go Big Blue!!
