Team USA basketball players are reportedly not happy with head coach Gregg Popovich.

USA lost to France in humiliating fashion Sunday, and it was our first loss in the Olympics since 2004. Naturally, people are starting to get worried. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to BroBible, The Athletic reported that players on the team are growing frustrated with Popovich for “running the San Antonio offense.”

Is it shocking to anyone that players are getting upset? We dropped exhibition games to Nigeria and Australia before the Olympics even started.

Then, we open against France and get ragdolled by a team that doesn’t have a fraction of our talent. If you’re not upset, then you’re not paying attention.

I have no idea how this situation is going to be fixed, but it’s really starting to look like Popovich isn’t the man for the job.

If we can’t run teams off the floor in the Olympics with all the talent we have, then we’re clearly not doing something right.

It’s that simple.

Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that we don’t continue to get embarrassed in Tokyo. That’s the last thing we need.
