Mason Plumlee makes Team USA -- great accomplishment for a guy tracked for the DLeague and benched in the playoffs. Kudos to the development
Even though he didn't play tonight, though, still think DeMar DeRozan has a chance. Final cut will likely be one of him, Parsons, Korver.
Nothing that happened tonight changes my belief that both DeMarcus Cousins and Mason Plumlee will make the 12-man roster for the World Cup.
Mason Plumlee said it'll be a long 24 hours until he knows if he makes it. Says he expects to hear in the AM. I think he'll get good news.
St. John's coach Steve Lavin also just walked in.
My favorite part of Jerome Williams being here: he has "JYD" monogrammed on his cuffs.
Jerome Williams is randomly hanging out in the mixed zone with the media tonight.
Coach K goes to great lengths to tell the media that he doesn't know what "jell" means.
Cousins to Plumlee for the dunk to cap a 112-86 win. Next stop for Team USA: Spain.
If there was any doubt, there are still four DNPs tonight. Have to think DeRozan, Lillard, Hayward and Drummond will be the cuts.
James Harden got stuck high on a drive to the rim. He is OK, it seems.
Probably in the minority on this, but I think Anthony Davis is the third best player in the NBA.
Sensational behind the back pass from Stephen Curry to James Harden for a fastbreak dunk as Team USA has finally opened up a sizable lead.
Knicks have become the latest NBA team to have the horrifying trend of a senior citizen dance team.
Cousins has played pretty well tonight, but has also picked up a couple of silly fouls. With FIBA refs, that's always going to be a concern.
Rory McIroy talking to JR Smith right now. Probably golf talk. And a bro hug.
Nice play by Klay Thompson to knock down a 3-pointer at the buzzer to send USA into locker room up 52-47 over Puerto Rico.
Plumlee back into the game for Anthony Davis for the final couple minutes of the half.
Bit of an up-and-down stint there for Plumlee. Did well offensively, but was over aggressive on defense leading to some PR layups.
Massive ovation, as expected, when Carmelo Anthony is shown on the jumbotron.
After sitting Wednesday, Mason Plumlee checks into the game. Also, that Derrick Rose guy is on the floor, too.
Derrick Rose is checking into the game.
Derrick Rose is not starting, and now he's working with resistant bands next to Team USA's bench
Perfect throw. Perfect tag. (Cubs game, btw). Yet it somehow gets reviewed to begin with. New rule. Awful rule.
Might stop in cincy though..
Couple things: Terrell Owens is 40 but can still ball and watching DJ Khaled do anything was hilarious. Wish DJK played the full 40 minutes
Kevin Durant has left the building. Believe he earlier walked around the bowels of Barclays with Roc Nation's Michael Yormark.
Photographers are literally flocking around Rihanna not sure anyone cares about KD http://t.co/51zpooeEzb
Rihanna is here. She just walked to her courtside seat. The game just stopped. I can see why.
At Barclays Center for Roc Nation celebrity B-ball game. Courtside crew features Harden, DeRozan and Durant.
Another reason to go on living: at red carpet event in Brooklyn. In next life I might know who the hell these people are
Coach K dropping hints about Plumlee over Drummond? "There will be a guy who doesn't make it that has better stats than somebody else."
I am amused by the number of people who seem to think I have some control over Team USA's cut process. Just saying what I think will happen.
Unlike last year, there's no planned players-only August workouts for the Nets. D-Will organized it in Cali last year.
Asked Derrick Rose about East being a race between Bulls and Cavs. He mentioned another team to watch out for: Charlotte.
Of those five guys, I think both Plumlee and Cousins make it to give Team USA four true bigs, making one of those wings the final cut.
From there, it seems like the final spot will come down to one of the following being sent home: Korver, DeRozan, Parsons, Cousins, Plumlee.
After being around the team this week, seems like Lillard, Drummond, Hayward will likely be the first three cuts.
I'm on a mission thts all I have time for right now!!!
He then says he's close to having that eight guys decided.
Krzyzewski says that he has to "compliment eight guys with four guys." Says "once we know those right" other four become easier to decide.
Krzyzewski singles out DeMar DeRozan as someone who has played well "whenever there's been live action" including scrimmages, games.
Coach K says "everyone is able to play" tomorrow night.
Derrick Rose is on the court practicing today http://t.co/Dh6S0BhfCl
