    Bosh is the reason why the US wins it all.


    Spain comes second due to the play of Jose Calederon and Pau Gasol

    Brazil just got owned by an Australia

    It's pretty impressive considering we are without 5 of our first team players including arguably our two best and most experianced players Anstey and Neilson.

    DC, your bloody Cavs made a silly move in not signing CJ Bruton earlier this year....

    CJ > Barbosa

    Goes to show there is such a thing called competition and that US and the ABs for that matter should not show too much arrogance in trying to reclaim the world title like its ours by right.

    DC i laughed my ass off when i saw the result on sportscenter. I just love it every time the us(that's right you don't even deserve capitals after that effort) loses. It's better when the media hypes them up as they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Maybe they should have played bosh, he could have taken that fat lardy guy to school. Pull him him out 15 feet from the basket and drain some nice jump shots, then when he comes out you go baseline and dunk it down on his fat, Crispy Cream ass. Instead you've got Melo jacking it up for 27 points thinking he's king cheese out there. And from his press conference after the game i now know why he left the NCAA for NBA...He was too f***ing stupid to pass the gimme tests they hand out. I was expecting the next words to come out of his mouth to be "nigga, bling, playa" ect. I wonder if he is going to appear in a sequel to that underground video about selling crack, like he did in the original. Oh wait that's right according to all the "experts" he's matured in the past year. Bullshit he's the same illiterate dick who can't play defence. The us still refuses to bring role players to these tournaments and when they do they don't get playing time. Greece did nothing special and the us could not stop them. Maybe playing defensive stoppers like Battier and Bowen for longer might have shut down the greek attack, but instead they played egotistical players who refuse to play a backup team oriented game. It's not all about the number 1 option in international basketball. To say the least they deserved this loss. Maybe and that's a huge maybe, they learned their lesson and will play these games like it's game 7 of the NBA finals and everyone will buy into the team concept. But i doubt that. These players have millions and "bitches and hos" to go back to and if a bronze medal at the olympics doesn't wake them up, this certainly won't.

    problem with the USA basketball team is that they dont play as a team

    5 individuals is not how you win a game

    egos are way to big.. go back to using college kids..

    Yeah, and College Kids are always so modest.
