[quote=JacobTheButcher]Gotta give Baby Shaq his due. He murdered us. The Clippers are lucky to have him...

I heard He won't play for the Clippres b/c He just signed a multimillion contract w/ a team in Greece.

Maybe we could not defeat Kidd, Bryant, McGrady, Duncan and O'Neal...but that is a big maybe.

If the players you refer to had no chemistry between them, then we could beat you.

But that is not the point...the players you mentioned had a chance in the past to win the gold medal, but they failed, and thus deemed unsuitable for this championship by your coaches.

Furthermore, if your team has the 3 best players of the world (Melo, James, Wade), you should have won.

USA by at least 15

Greece team has no talent, they just play as a team

Oh, they do.

The PG Diamantidis has long arms. He is first in steals, very good rebounder, he can block shots.

The SG Papaloykas has also long arms. He is good at stealing the ball, he is very good in driving to the basket, he can slam dunk the ball almost like Wane (he did not do it in this game, but he has in previous games). He also has very good pass.

The other SG/PG Spanoulis has a very strong drive, good 3 point shot, and he is very fast.

Our forwards Kakioyzis and Tsartsaris are not very strong, but they have inside and outside shooting.

Our big center "baby Shaq" Sofoklis Schortsianitis has a big body that he can manage very good, thus opening the lanes. He also has very good shot from the foul line.

Your team has 3 players that are better than all our players: Melo, James and Wade. But the rest of your players are average, to say the least.

I watched the game. I know they have talent. I was just making fun of that quote. That Baby Shaq is a MONsTER

the 04 team had duncan and iverson, 2 NBA MVPs. they did not win.

what makes anybody think that just sending the best players will be an automatic tournament win now? it probably won't anymore.

Please, please...

To support other teams doesnīt main to hate usa.
The rest of the world, where i live, support this teams because we are a little beat tired of: "Internationals donīt have talent. They are nonames. USA is gonna win by 20+...."
Basketball is not a property of USA, it is property of people who plays it.
And donīt be worried you are still in the world elite. USA is a basketball powerhouse (one of a handfull).

And please, donīt repeat the same aguments than in 2002 and 2004. One day or another you are gonna win a big championship (world, olimpycs), just the same like Argentina won in 2004, Yugoslavia in 2002...

No, comprehend better. I don't understand how you can root so much against the US where you are laughing and cheering their downfalls when at the same time, you are a fan of the NBA. Rooting for your home country to beat the US is one thing, but cheering each downfall is another.

Not for quite some time now.

Stop with this IF bussines. The funny thing is a lot of non-american players like Nowitzky, Arroyo, Nocioni,... can't wait to play for their country. You can't say the same for USA players. And their attitude is



I got nothing on 1992 team, they were great.



Stop with the if bussines....

You know I can do this too:

Bryant would shoot 29% from the field.

O'Neal would shoot 15% from the free throw line and fouled out in 12 minutes.

McGrady would broke his nail and call it a day.

BTW: If Slovenia had Vujacic we would get gold









Here you go:

great post, but IDK about that Vujacic and Slovenia comment. I'm from the U.S. and I was expecting Greece to cause USA some problems because of their defense. I wish that the US had access to watching more world basketball than just being stuck overhere watching all NBA games just so that we could see a broader base of talent in other countries other than just over here, and I agree with whoever that was that said that the NBA game's just watered down w/ Wade and James going to the line and expecting a foul everytime and going to the line just because of the star power these refs are giving them nowadays; take it back to how these games were being called in the early 80s-mid 90's

Better use your brain when making a statement like this and not your ass!

If I'm not mistaken Greece and Spain will play for the right to be #1 in the world on Sunday!

US is at best #3 - If they can win against Argentina!

Didn't the Detroit Pistons win a championship against the Laker better individual talent for that very same reason... Playing as a team?

Last time I checked basketball is a team sport... At least the real basketball is, not the circus that we watch in the NBA!
