Steve Kerr and his staff film the group’s entire battle with the aim of examining all possible combinations for the Team USA rotation.
“That’s the moment to understand our potential and try more combinations.”
The lineup with two point guards, Jalen Brunson and Tyrese Haliburton, is interesting.
“Yeah, they played separately for the first two quarters and then we put them together… They’re guys who know the game and know how to pass the ball well, two so they can play with anyone.” But it is funny. Everyone enjoys having a double point guard on the field. But to be honest, I feel the same way when Austin Reaves is on the pitch. He is also an excellent passer.
One of the reactions of the first days of the training camp is the role of Jalen Brunson, immediately one of the leaders of the group.
“I think Jalen is a born leader… As a point guard, he’s the first person that comes to mind for the role. He’s the one leading the chorus “1, 2, 3 USA.” Leading a group comes naturally to some people…
“But he’s not the only one, there’s a kind of division of leadership among several players and for a coach it’s funny to see.”
Two ex-boyfriends like Chris Paul and Kyle Lowry were among the guests of Team USA yesterday.
