Duncan had a crap team around him. That's why he lost. It's pretty simple. Again, he was pretty much the only big man.
Is this years team better. Of course, we all agree on this. Do they have weaknesses? Yes, we've all agreed on that. We know they didn't send enough big men. You know if they lose it will be because of their lack of size. It's not an excuse, it's a legitimate reason. Get over your US hating. If it wasn't for the USA you wouldn't even have a basketball team to argue about.
Its not US hating.Its been fed up of US arrogance,Ignorrance(Iran is in Europe Kinda comments!) and excuses for everytime they lose.
