    we just gave a free lesson to australia on how to play basketball...no charge...Bogut is still welcome to play in the NBA.

    they got beat worse than my 25 pt prediction... yall beat Lituania whoopee now you can watch USA bitch slap Lithuania whenever they play them. 31 pts? yall was so happy yall only lost by 11 the first time now there is no doubt. Andrew Bogut 4pts? he's your best player? yall did better without him. back to the gym asap he doesn't have what it takes because he got muscled out the lane as I predicted.

    Like I said before...D Wade, Lebron, & Kobe out there...they will not lose.

    In 2004 did you feel the U.S. team would run through competition? or did you kind of feel they might be in trouble?

    in 2004 they had some bums (in the sense that they were far from the best the country had to offer) on the squad: Emeka Okafor, Lamar Odom, Stephon Marbury, Richard Jefferson, Shawn Marion...really? They weren't all stars....just some guys.

    we coulnd't get any of the all stars at the time? No Kobe, No Shaq, No TMac, No J Kidd, No Vince Carter, No Jermaine Oneal, No KG, No Baron Davis, No Ron Artest? No Paul Pierce? No Michael Redd? No Ray Allen?

    Wade, LBJ, and Carmelo riding the pine??? add to that they were only rookies (as well as amare). That's the equivalent of having Derrick Rose, Beasley, OJ Mayo & Russell Westbrook representing the USA right now.

    I don't even remember watching one game or caring anything about that squad. With boring stubborn Larry Brown walk it up the court and cherish every possession philosophy...I'm happy that they got any kind of medal.

    They deserved only a bronze sending that batch of players...RICHARD JEFFERSON?? LAMAR ODOM??? AI & Tim Duncan were the only AllStars from that team....
    I just don't know what they were thinking when they picked that team. There is no logical explanation...none at all.

    But now a good majority of our best players are over there playing DWade, Kobe, Lebron, CP3, Dwight Howard, Chris Bosh, Deron Williams and you see the difference in the scoreboard. only a handful of our best players aren't there (KG, Elton Brand, joe Johnson & Amare Stoudemire which really would made this rout even more lopsided then it already is).

    The only way the world has a chance is if we send our middle tier players and rookies. If we send the best players in teh league it's curtains.

    Argentina is next...they are too old for this shit.

    As an avid Duke hater, I gotta give Coach K his props...

    USA rarely runs plays, they get out in transition and run teams into the ground... I haven't seen anyone walk the ball up after a missed shot yet...


    I'm lovin this shit...

    I think it was a good thing that they screwed up in 2004. I think they were getting cocky and thinking they could send anybody over there and think they would walk all over everybody. I was also happy to see Larry Brown fail.

    I'm wondering if any other players will follow Chris Kaman's lead and apply for citzenship elsewhere in order to play in the olympics

    it was a pretty awful game today...countless turnovers...brick after brick after brick...foul trouble and they still managed to win by 20.

    Ginobili didn't play but one quarter but it was their worse quarter and got damn Scola; I knew he was good but didn't know that he would just flat out dominate whoever was guarding him. He definitely helped them claw back after the first quarter and kept Argentina somewhat in the game. He had to have like 35 pts.

    Argentina had the heart of champion; at least they didn't go out like bitches like the rest of the teams USA rolled on.

    well Spain is up next...this will be a much easier victory en route to Gold Medals especially since the US Track Sprint squad failed to show up at all
