Team USA Basketball--London Gold Medal Olympic Champions

Damn, that was a close one.
Ok I didn't wake up early enough to see this one on the weekend. But a 5 point win vs. Lithuania?.... What happened?

BTW are they replaying this thing later?

I'm really worried about this team. They might come out with a Silver or Bronze....

Are they going to lose to Spain, who just lost to Russia? lol
Better than the Dream Team, yeah right.....

They have no legitimate bigs for an inside game. The compisition of this roster just doesn't make sense. I realize some of it was injuries. Bosh, Howard, Griffin could have helped. But still the front line is terribly weak for a "dream team" Tyson Chandler is the best you could find.... He's not that good. He wouldn't even make the 1992 team at all. Love is a good rebounder but doesn't bring much athleticism. The front line is just really, really weak especially if Chandler gets in foul trouble like he does every game. If I was playing the U.S. I would try to get Chandler into foul trouble every single game.

Should've put Cousins on the team

Man we need something. There are plenty of NBA guys out there. It's hard to believe with the front line we have we couldn't have added something better. Despite the injuries. What about even Bynum? If Howard can't go why not him?

Bynum chose not to play. Probably because of his injury history and the fact that he's going into a contract year. Besides the injured players and the ones that opted not to play, who exactly did you have in mind for American big men that you would rather see on the team?

I was surprised they didn't take Al Jefferson or Roy Hibbert

They very well could if they keep playing like that. And who thinks they can even be in the same breath as the original Dream Team?
