    The games I've seen have been complete domination.
    I was watching them play China and I was complaining the whole time but then I glanced at the scoreboard and they were up by like 25 and China was playing hard. That's when I realized those ESPN guys are blowing things way out of proportion.


    Do they really think D Wade, Kobe, and LeBron will let this team lose?

    I was on ESPN.com and the shit is laughable when they talk about the biggest threat being Spain. Didn't Spain go to overtime with CHINA? Get the fuck outta here.

    The only reason Team USA lost in 04 was because of bad roster choices making it look like a B team which it was.

    Stephon Marbury, Emeka Okafor, Richard Jefferson, Lamar Odom??? I mean really...were they serious with those choices....some of these niggaz didn't even make the all star team!?
    Hardly the best players the US had to offer couple that with stubborn Larry Brown deciding not to play LBJ, D Wade, and Carmelo Anthony, it's easy to see why they only got bronze.


    But now Kobe, LBJ, DWade out there...and the rest are superstars (cept for Tayshaun Prince) and they aren't losing.
    They will beat the shit out of Greece on Thursday by at least 20 just like they do everyone else. And Spain is next after that.

    Pau Gasol? We saw how soft he is in the paint in the finals...a 7 Foot cupcake..if he thought KG was physical wait till he sees Dwight Howard on a mission. And his brother is a young buck he aint doing shit and neither is Calderon...I'm tired of espn hyping up these weak players

    "usa beats on another country....only weeks from the gold medal"

    and everyone else going "damn right"

    thats not entertaining,that wont make us hate some commentators and love others...its all for ratings

    they were up against china because china had no depth, especially at point guard where the us team excelled in creating turnovers then breaking away in the open court against a gassed team. the contenders are far more disciplined than that.

    ahh wisdom spoken from prince. The only way we lose tho is if they can't make they three's which is a fuckin mid range jumper in the nba. Chris paul be harassing these pg's wit his defense tho. The Redeem Team is jus like Phoenix imo they wanna run so much and the other team slows it down...only team usa can play d heh

    they hype it because nobody wants to watch a game where the predicted outcome is USA by 30 points.

    the problem isn't 3 point shooting (except for kobe's spectacular 1-17 from 3 in 2 games), it's their horrible ass free throw shooting...

    with as much as they drive and create contact to get to the line, they shouldn't be missing as many free throws as they have been...

    You're an idiot cause Tayshaun Prince is a fucking stud. Best defender in basketball, and great all around game.

    He's not a superstar cause fags like you can't appreciate anything but scoring.

    Greeece was supposed to be a "contender", what's their excuse today after the USA beat the living shit out of them just as I said they would? Athens 04 was what it was an upset. They call it an upset because the team that won shouldn't have won. This Olympics there won't be any upsets.

    Spain has no chance against the USA. Saturday will be another blowout especially if Spain (the so called best team cuz they won a tournament) have to have a miracle comeback to beat China.

    Dwight Howard is gonna straight bitch Pau Gasol and his weak brother. Jose Calderon? don't make me laugh as well as those other NBA benchwarmers who aint gone do shit when Coach K, LBJ, D Wade, Kobe and Co. come to town.

    and to those hollering about Tayshaun be easy I never said he wasn't a good player but he's just not a superstar...it's not arguable.
