SHANGHAI (AP) The United States does not have the best team at this World Cup.
This is not a new thing.
Its just more evident now. The Americans edge in recent tournaments has been that they always had the best players on the court. Thats not the case in this World Cup. The best player in the tournament is NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, who plays for Greece, a team that is likely waiting for the U.S. this weekend. All-NBA first-teamer Nikola Jokic plays for Serbia. The two-time reigning defensive player of the year, Rudy Gobert, plays for France.
