Default There's Still Hope

I think the U.S. gave a better effort than they did the last time but I think they should work on the following:

* They need to learn how to move without the ball. They could've been setting picks for each other while they were just standing around watching Carmelo, Wade, or LeBron go one on one.

* They officially need Kobe Bryant on the team so he can bring a killer instinct to the team.

*At times, they still play as if they're superior to the opposition. They weren't giving a full effort contesting Greece's shots.

* They need better perimeter shooters.

I'm not totally discouraged by the loss because we as in American at least have some type of system now. We just need to stick with it and correct the problems listed above.

They need to have everybody contribute to all categories of the game rebound, score, play defence. They can't have one or two players carry the whole team, that type of play doesn't work in World basketball. Better selection of the players this time around but still not good enough.
