    USA Basketball

    Is anyone watching the US play Puerto Rico right now? It is emabarassing to watch Team USA play that bad. They can't shoot, and they are turning it over like crazy.

    USA Basketball

    The whole problem is that they play in the NBA, they don't play basketball. They now have to adapt to getting 1 1/2 steps on a layup rather than the three they get in the NBA, it is tough for them to break down someone one on one when in international basketball they actually call you for carrying the ball and traveling. Even when they do get to the hoop they expect to get a foul called when the defender breaths too hard on them.
    Get my point? I have seen more traveling calls in the USA games than in any 5 NBA games combined. In the NBA basketball is defined as breaking down the defense by carrying the ball on your crossover, then hooking your defender and finally either dunking in someones face or getting some weak-ass foul called. With all of this happening why learn to be a good shooter? Sure some players get in a groove now and them but how many pure shooters arer there in the NBA. Kobe gets 30 a game but it takes 25 shots and 15 free throws to get it.
    If you cant shoot outside in international basketball you are sunk, they will just pack in the zone and force you to make shots and the USA does not know how too, but hey they can always tell the Italians that if they give them a couple extra steps and let us push off we will dunk on you better than anyone. NBA basketball is not real basketball, might as well send the and one teams to Athens.

    I think the USA olympics should make the way to pick the team is who ever wins the championship, think about they cant be that bad, and also they have chemistry.

    Not everyone on that team will be American, and not everyone would want to go.
