Jeff Van Gundy-Team USA face changes in World Cup-Olympics q

Postby bcbc55 » Tue Aug 29, 2017 6:38 pm

Very, very interesting article on UMaine Men''s basketball coach Bob Walsh's BLOG about the hiring of Jeff Van Gundy, a current NBA Television Commentator to coach the Team USA to qualify for the 2020 Olympics. This is caused by several changes in the qualifying rules which makes this hire necessary.

The qualifying World Cup Tournament for the Olympics will now be held during the winter months of the NBA season thus forcing the hiring of Van Gundy to make up and coach this Team USA of the NBA's developmental league's players.

Van Gundy feels it is trying to qualify with the JV team for the varsity team under San Antonio Spurs coach, " Pop" Popovich the chance to qualify to defend their championship.

This article also discusses Van Gundy's approach to returning to coaching after a 10 year hiatus.

To read this article in it's entirety just go to's and hit his BLOG.

Coach Walsh should be thanked for posting this very interesting, timely, and informative article for basketball fans to read. I know I really appreciate it.
