Team USA Basketball Managing Director Jerry Colangelo was critical of the NBA players who decided to skip the 2019 Basketball World Cup.

Here is what the experienced executive said, per the Associated Press:

“I can only say, you can’t help but notice and remember who you thought you were going to war with and who didn’t show up.

I’m a firm believer that you deal with the cards you’re dealt. All we could have done, and we did it, is get the commitments from a lot of players.

So with that kind of a hand you feel reasonably confident that you’re going to be able to put a very good representative team on the court.”
