Thunder Benefit From Olympic Experience?

That’s wall-to-wall basketball. Good thing the Thunder legs have low mileage. If your franchise players are going to spend the summer playing for some other entity, at least you hope they get something out of it that benefits your organization.
And I don’t mean three gold medals and a silver, even though that trumps three silvers and a gold, which would have occurred had Serge Ibaka’s Spaniards not fallen short to the Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden Americans, 107-100.
Maybe a month playing for Mike Krzyzewski and his U.S. coaching staff, and with all-stars like LeBron (James), Carmelo (Anthony), Pau Gasol, Kobe (Bryant) and Chris Paul, will help crystallize for the Thunder stars what they need to do to improve.
Or maybe not. The Baby Boomers have been notable for an exemplary attitude, void of arrogance, and remarkable improvement each year they’ve been together.
