Goran Dragic knows NBA talent as well as anyone at this FIBA World Cup tournament, what with his six seasons logged in the world’s best league and his borderline All-Star status.

But when the Phoenix Suns point guard was asked to pick a FIBA World Cup favorite just minutes after his Slovenian team was drubbed 119-76 by Team USA on Tuesday night, one might have assumed that he’d pick the Americans if only because of the magnitude of the one-sided moment.
