Lauren Jackson: Opals can win World Cup gold

With the USA overwhelming favourites, Jackson reinforced her belief that the Opals were the team that could dethrone their arch rivals.

"I don't think America have an answer for Liz," affirmed Jackson. “Our squad is very talented and will only get stronger with more time together.”

It's going to take more than a player like Cambage to beat the USA, she’s dreaming,they will be left clay if she even gets to finish the games without being ejected
It takes more than one player to make a team even if that player doesn’t think so

If only Jackson didn't have all those injuries to make her retire, her Cambage together would have been awesome.

I think the consensus is that USA are the top tier than the likes of Australia, Spain, France, Canada and Japan are the next competing for the other medals. Least that's what Reeves thinks and not inclined to disagree.

How well we do depends on how often Cambage steps up in the knockout games.

Think we have a better shot in 2020.

If Cambage actually focused and was mature and stayed disciplined and went on an absolute tear yes they could win a gold. But she's a woman child so it won't be happening.

Manchild sounds so much better but didn't want to risk the wrath of the feminists.

No hope whatsoever of winning gold. USA a mile ahead of anyone else. Cambage might have a slight advantage over Griner but at every other position in the starting 5 and the bench the margin is huge in USA's favour. Liz could have 40 and they would still win by 20+

We're too weak in the PG spot. All due respect to Lavey, however no match for the PG's from USA and Euro powerhouses.
