My bruh Kobe doe. We bofe like em white
Whoa! If you told me Pau, Marc, and Ibaka are on the same team, I would say they would dominate, especially against a team who's best players are Parker and Diaw. Boy was I wrong.

Batum's pretty good. I think Turiaf is also on the squad, but I'm with ya on that one.

he looked pissed yesterday.. i'm glad he got his

he was forcing it the past couple of games before that.. i guess he's not used to being the 3rd/4th best player on the floor

This may seem weird but I think some of these guys struggle shooting because they're not used to getting wide open looks. Guys like Kobe, Durant, and Lebron are used to having to work for their baskets and not used to stepping into jumpers
Wow. Time to step up.

I think we could probably lose to Argentina in Pool play if we don't have established roles yet.

Bosh is out. If one more all star drops I'll start to doubt our ability to win gold.

I think this team is definitely beatable. Having Chandler as your only inside presence is a major weakness imo. Teams can take away the middle of the floor with a guy like Nene and good defense, and force them to hit jump shots. Not saying this team sucks, but the lack of a big man could lose these guys a game I feel. I think the Gasol's just might give these guys a good fight.

They can throw away the 1992 talk. That's for sure. They will struggle just this year in the Olympics.

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

Awesome sayings at the end by Bob Fitzgerald you know he practiced "there will be no changing of the guard in London."

And

"team USA went to London like the Beatles and rolling stones who cut albums that turned into gold"

I thought Chris Paul made three great plays half way through the fourth to really hold off the Spanish momentum and it's good to see Lebron as the closer.

How about the eyebrow! A national Championship and gold metal before his first nba game.

Christian Laettner approves.
That squad was a Dwight Howard away from being completely untouchable. CP3/Kobe/Durant/LeBron on the court together was just filthy.
Remember the Maine, to Hell with Spain!


the champs!!

Give props to Spain...or should I say gasol

Gasol dominated the 3rd and was beasting all game...... till lebron swiped his eye. Stopped momentum.
Can someone link me to highlights?
