Indiana Pacers‘ Myles Turner took on twitter after the Team USA was eliminated from the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
“From 1-12 top to bottom this team this roster has sacrificed so much for our nation. our summers, our bodies, our mental. We came up short can’t nobodies more upset than us but I refuse to tolerate any Slander for our play you cannot question our heart.
Our character, or are spirit we layed it all out on the line each and every game. Don’t disrespect us, this coaching staff or USA Basketball as a whole but respect the world basketball is an international game these countries are talented.
JB, Khris, JT, Dmitch, Mason, Marcus, Kemba, D White, BrooK, HB, Joe it’s been an honor I’d go to war with any of these fellas any given night. #Godspeed fellas let’s head home with a Dub
We’re also the ones who stepped up to the plate when others stepped down. We qualified our nation for the Olympics we got some work to do to rebuild a legacy that was left before us were on the wrong side of history indeed. But that’s gunna make the next medal that much sweeter!”
