Re: USA Basketball going nowhere unless it's Kobe's team...
if team usa spent the whole time "deferring" to kobe, wouldn't that just make them the lakers?
there is too much talent there to just say give kobe the ball... i look forward to winning gold but i am NOT AT ALL looking forward to everyone saying that it was because kobe was there*
*if he turns out to be the indisputable reason we won it, fine, but i just don't see that being the case.
yes, kobe is a great player, there is no arguing that, but being the sole reason a team of all star caliber players beats world wide competition, that's stretching it...
