Covid positive due to playing team USA/Bradley Beal+++

Well they're eluding to it but nothing has been confirmed, then Bogut followed up by posting a funny meme so who knows what the truth is just yet. It could just be that Bradley Beal is confirmed now and now we have something to worry about. I don't know.

If Boomers are out though, so too will be the USA and the whole competition will be a farce.

well I'd like to think so. But Anstey also saying stuff. I don't know if Anstey is just reacting to Bogut or not. Bogut seems to be posting to create a bit of drama with 'say it isnt so" rather than something specific or something.

Olgun -

"As of this evening, every Australian Boomers player and official had returned a negative COVID-19 test, multiple sources told ESPN. The Boomers played Team USA on Tuesday in Las Vegas; since that game, the USA's Bradley Beal has entered health and safety protocols."


Bogut -

"Boomers all good"

It seems like Bradley Beal isnt even confirmed yet so this all might be a mountain out of a mole hill. He probably was a contact of a case.

I think we might be seeing some sort of late roster change and Bogut is mimicking Karl Beston on it.

Wouldn't surprise me if someone is shipping out for Cooks or Giddey

The cryptic dickheadery of Olgun and Bogut needs to stop with the "Say it aint so Basketball Australia" and Olgun going "he's talking about something compleeeetly different". How about just tell us what it is, or say nothing. Or at least confirm that all Boomers and Opals are healthy, safe and ready to go chase some fucking medals?!?

Because Olgun hasnt said anything different and alleges to have spoken to many sources my feeling is that Bogut's tweet probably isn't Boomer related at all. If it was something bad or scary I think Olgun would have at least alluded to it in some way. I think Bogut needs his head read after that Tweet. A lot of people really care about the Boomers and he knows what is going on with them right now, so it's pretty idiotic to have tweeted what he tweeted when he did.

Since the talent pool for basketball journalism in this country is so shallow/basically non-existent and Moldovan feeds him information Olgun kind of got in by default. He's more of a publicist for Octagon than anything else.

Boguts basketball IQ to normal IQ is mind boggling.

Olgun is okay when he sticks to reporting but when he tries to get into X and O's and analyse game play its absolutely cringe worthy.

Question regarding replacement players, how come teams like USA, Nigeria can still bring players in that weren't originally listed, but Australia can only use Giddey and Cooks as injury replacements? That's how I've understood it since the final team was announced.

Just wondering, in light of this Cambage news:

Do you think maybe that's what Bogut’s initial "say it ain’t so" tweet is referring to, about the incoming Cambage stuff??

Yeah, definitely cambage I'd say. Sounds like she not only got into a fight with Nigerian players but she's been going around vegas treating it like her own personal holiday while everyone else has been adhering to strict covid protocols.

Wait for

2. Try to fly the flag for mental health causes
3. Relate her 'mental health issues’ back to previous systemic racism
4. Accuse anyone of not buying this line as racist and an example of why she is like she is.
5. Blaming Olympic officials and teammates etc of being racist for taking a stance
6. Turning back on Australia
7. Dragging Ben Simmons into it

Wonder what happens with Boomers exhibitions now. I am sure the USA game has to be cancelled but what would we do from here? Not warm up until game 1? Play Spain in Vegas instead of USA? Get on the first flight to Tokyo and hunker down for a week?

Bogus has an excellent basketball brain, but no real sense of reality off the court, and no social filter at all.

He is a basketball idio savant. I respect his contributions on the court and in game leadership, but t he's Pete Evans level intellect when it comes to life skills.

By the time they all finish in Japan, they will be lucky to have any not with Covid19...Japan does not want to hold the games due to their increased infection rates, but the IOC have insisted stating the TV rights and Sponsors will cost too much if they pull the games.
Let's just hope these athletes in all disciplines don’t end up having ongoing health issues after these game, it’s privdn vaccinations don’t stop you catching or spreading it, just potentially not getting seriously ill, but even that is not guaranteed.
Madness holding these games in this current climate.

So had the paramedics in Sydney, the multiple health workers overseas, vaccines don't stop you contracting it, just hopefully reduces the severity of symptoms, you can still be infectious and vaccinated

Everyone keeps saying words I wouldn't repeat.

Are they saying she used racist language or just swear words.

Like say she used racist language or she didn't.

No hypocrisy getting into a verbal fight. A lot of hypocrisy getting into a racist verbal fight.

Also a racist verbal fight should see her off the team for a while. And possibly suspended by any basketball organisation for a period of time (WNBA / WNBL)
