    Thats what killed us last Olympics...no shooters. The other teams sat back and palyed zone!
    Well we did have shooters but they choked... If we load up on shooters I wonder if the teams will go back to 1 on 1, in which case we can just post up down low.
    We lost because we did not have shooters.

    Yes, everybody in the NBA is technically a shooter. But, the way we treid to win was crushed with a zone defense.

    How do you beat a zone? Shoot from the outside.

    Not to mention the fact that the athleticism and one on one skill of the NBA guys is the reason why they played zone in the first place. They knew they probably didn't have much of a shot playing man to man because that's what the guys in the NBA are used to dominating. Playing against a zone really messed them up though, which is where the shooters need to come in.

    We should never ever lose in Basketball, plain and simple.

    All the best talent comes from the United States, it should be like the dream team all over again, but our lazy NBA players refuse to do something they don't get paid for.

    Imagine a team of:

    1) Dwayne Wade
    2) Kobe Bryant
    3) LeBron James
    4) Kevin Garnett
    5) Shaquille O'neal


    Too bad the 4 and 5 aren't invited, but I guess if they really wanted to they could figure out a way to get in.



    Even their backups should beat other teams.

    NO AI = Cajunvike Boycott of watching the games!!!

    Plus the fact that K is stacking the team with ex-DOOKIES will make it painful to watch!

    I guess he has to make up for the fact that most of his players don't do squat in the NBA! :lol:

    (And YES, I am aware of Brand...BUT he did leave early if I recall correctly, so he's NOT a typical DOOKIE that stays for his whole four years...so he really doesn't count) :evil4:
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Come on, I'd rather have Reddick than AI on my team any day :roll: . I dont know what the hell he is thinking, and neither does anyone who follows basketball.


    Chuch.
