Team USA, Gregg Popovich: It’s impossible to give everybody the minutes they would like to have

Team USA will debut tomorrow in Shanghai against the Czech Republic

Team USA coach Gregg Popovich talks about his team rotations in a 40 minutes game:

“You know in a 48 minute game, you pretty much know how to get everybody in, or the people you want to get in anyway. Here you have to make some decisions, because everybody may not play. It’s impossible to give everybody the minutes they would like to have, but like I said, guys with character understand that. It’s just about winning. It’s not about minutes, or points or any of that stuff. So, everyone knows that they’ll have maybe a different role than they do in the NBA, and that they’re going to play fewer minutes than they did in the NBA”
