    greece beats us!!!

    well.. another miracle happened..

    and just as Herb Brooks said..

    "All star teams loose because they rely on indiviual talent.". I say "Greece won because they use their talent as a team."


    so it's playing for 3rd best in the world..


    I can only saythat it seems our problem is that all these countries play the same players in their national team for several years.. every tourni we enter we have a new team.. I'd like to se eus keep the same players now, all young and all able to grow together.. and reclaim the dominating play we used to have.

    i knew this was gonna happen. actually i thought it would happen against spain in the finals. the rest of the world has finally mastered the art of beating the sh*t out of us at any sport we create. the only sport we still have is football.

    Team USA Loses!

    Well it happened again.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/oly/wbc2006/news/story?id=2568543

    Done in again by their inept 3-point shooting -- and they weren't much better from the foul line -- the Americans will fall short of a championship in a major international tournament for the third straight time since winning gold at the 2000 Olympics.

    The Greeks -- with no current NBA players on their roster -- danced in a circle at halfcourt after their victory.

    "Big players play big games," said guard Theodoros Papaloukas, the MVP of the European final who had 12 assists Friday. "And today I think we played very good."

    So I suppose the headlines will read " US BB Team slips on Greese"


    The NBA and basketball in general in this country should be disgraced

    Based on the recent performances of the US Men's national basketball team, I'd hardly call that a "miracle".

    US once again done in on the international stage because they don't play D, can't make a three and are horrible from the free-throw line.

    But - DAMN - we'd probably win a dunk contest!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    That's probably the most intelligent post regarding the US national basketball team I've ever seen.

    Kudos to you Zeus!
