For Americans not following the FIBA World Cup closely, it’s easy to believe that Team USA is the tournament’s only juggernaut. The United States is one of two teams teams that went undefeated in group play, beating its opponents on average by a whopping 33.2 points.

Far more important than Derrick Rose’s performance for Team USA is his health. So despite mostly lackluster offensive play so far, that Rose’s body has responded well to the rigorous FIBA World Cup schedule makes his experience thus far a success.
