Team Africa is headlined by Serge Ibaka, Victor Oladipo and Dennis Schroder. Joel Embiid will be present but will not play as he recovers from a meniscus tear.
Team World is loaded with familiar faces, including DeMarcus Cousins, C.J. McCollum, Kyle Lowry, Andre Drummond, as well as both Kristaps Porzingis and Dirk Nowitzki, who spent time working out together this summer.
Team World beat Team Africa, 101-97, in the inaugural game. Now, Team Africa will attempt to exact revenge and get a victory against a tough opponent.
Combined with the guys who had one-off performances against his team, this leads to one pretty big conclusion: as an executive, Rivers seems to care a lot more about whether he once saw a player performing well than he worries about whether a player is actually any good. There are more factors in scouting NBA players now than at any point in the league’s existence, but for Rivers, I remember this guy, and he was good! still seems to be the biggest criterion.
I don’t want to say Rivers has done a bad job with the Clippers. They’ve been a good team in all three seasons he’s coached them, and he did a really good job as coach of the Celtics, so his basketball acumen deserves the benefit of the doubt. But Rivers has definitely been un-inventive when thinking about who to add to his team.
The Clippers are in a weird place.
