would you prefer the crotch grabbing, wild dancing, and non-stop cursing displayed by the 1994 World Championships Team? you know, the team where Coleman, Kemp, Mourning, and Shaq completely ruined any type of grace or honor that is associated with the sport?

They don't mean anything by it. They're not hurting anybody.

Maybe it's a bit offensive. I dont think so, but I can understand the people who do.


But why do people have to get on a soapbox every single damn time there is something done that has the smallest little possibility of being inappropriate.


Its like some people wont be happy until they have something to B*tch about. Not really picking on you Bourne, but there have been some people that I've seen really really ***** too much about this

I'm probably going overboard on this, but I think it needs to stop. Especially now that the soldiers are not in the actual arena en masse like in Vegas. Besides, the international crowd doesn't necessarily support the war in Iraq.
Please stop whining about trivial BS.

Thank you

My dad is from the Phil. Air Force so I know that saluting is a sign of respect...I don't even know why this topic is a big deal...

Co-sign.

And again co-sign.

Team USA has no class. The Dream Team, was a team with superior talent, and class. You think you would see them showboating over a simple dunk? Nope.
