Man, I have been rooting for this guy since he came out of college. He just had so many problems outside of basketball. This is a sad end to a sad story. I really thought over time he could turn his life around. Now we will never know....25 years old...man.

r.i.p.

Okay you're telling me that USA beat Venezuela (the guys who won the gold) 102-69, that they wont kill every other team?

Anyone else see lebron fly from the free-throw line?

You say tomato, I say tomato
You say Venzuela, I say Argentina


Its just semantics. They're both south of Mexico somehwere, so they must be the same.

Amare/Chandler
Carmelo/Howard
LeBron/Prince
Kobe/Redd/Miller
Kidd/Billups/Williams

That's the roster right now. Chandler has no place there. He needs to be dropped and another good big needs to be added before the team hits Beijing next year.

they're showing the replay on nbatv... the only difference i see between this team and the past few senior teams is that they're at least, for now, attempting to play a little more defense.

that said, venezuela is god awful

dwight howard is next to useless on the offensive end in the international game

most of the american's shots still come off of one-on-one and transition... there's very little ball movement. for example... lebron just dribbled the ball 40 times and tried to penetrate against a flat 3-2 zone.

the most cohesive unit on the floor i've seen was billups, miller, redd, prince and stoudamire... keep kobe and kidd, get lebron and carmello the fuck off this team. it's amazing how the international game exposes the complete lack in fundamental skill and basketball IQ of the "elite" american player.

'cause it's not the season and most people don't care enough to stay up late to watch the US play a bunch of guys who couldn't make the team at the local Y...

brazil is about the only team capable of beating the US in this tourney... argentina left most of their good players home because, after all, they're already qualified for the olympics and this is more or less meaningless to them.

if the US doesn't win this tourney they should fold the NBA.
