A good article. And LeBron's right, this team doesn't need Kobe.

True, true. I'm not saying everything with the team is perfect, but the atmosphere is definitely much improved over the situation two years ago. Plus, they're all getting adjusted to int'l rules, zones, etc. When they start to react more naturally, like all the other players used to fiba ball, they'll get better.

Time will tell, and as you said they still have big challenges ahead of them, but I just have a feeling that they'll pull things out and win the tournament. Obviously, they won't be anywhere as dominant as the '92 team, but they'll get the job done.

That isn't what he said. Projecting much? Kobe would have bigger impact in FIBA than LeBron would.
