Are there any teams at the Olympics that can play Team USA relatively close? Does Draymond Green's latest indiscretion say anything about him? And are there any Greg Monroe trades out there that make sense?

These topics and more are broken down by the Hardwood Knocks crew in Episode 51.

We start by talking about how Team USA ran through its pre-Olympic exhibition tour with one 40-plus-point win after another. And through most of the games, it looked like the guys weren't playing anywhere near full speed. So what will it take for a team like Spain or France to make a game competitive in Rio? And are there any countries that could threaten USA in the future? Ben Simmons and Australia maybe?

Then, we move on to Draymond Green's latest snafu. Is this just a case of the age of social media blowing everything out of proportion?

And finally, we talk Greg Monroe trades. He doesn't appear to be a part of Milwaukee's future plans, but it's not easy to find a suitable trade destination for him. That won't stop us from trying, though.

All that and more on this episode of Hardwood Knocks!
