No NBA player can guard Navarro when he is on. He has regularly abused Team USA multiple times.

Like I said over and over and over here - he was the worst point guard in the Euroleague. How many damn times does this have to be explained for NBA fans to grasp how much he sucks?

it was a good game despite the 10+ lead Spain had virtually all game long. I liked how France kept battling but it was to no avail. they have the defense i think to compete with Spain but didnt have the offensive firepower. TP is the only one who is capable of scoring 20+, While Spain has about 5 players who could explode for 20+. If only Tony Parker had a 2nd scorer for more balance so he doesnt have to carry the scoring load every game, they would be gold medal contenders in any FIBA tournament.

Some flopping i saw by the Spain team that disgusted me. Rubio sucks like always. Sada is much better. Gasol Brothers are gonna be a handle for any team especially Team USA. especially if Ibaka will play for the 2012 team. Navarro is quite good in this stage, within the FIBA rules and within his role of Spain's NT, but i thought TP was the clear MVP of the tournament.

Maybe Batum will be that 2nd option in the future. Playing in Europe next season will help, as he'll be the 1st option in his new team.
As for Parker being the MVP, well, you know they never give it to a player in the losing team.

Batum doesnt create for himself but he can shoot. he is a great addition to France with his defense and set shots. but will likely not be a 2nd option scorer for any professional or national team. he just doesnt have the skillset to create for himself or others.

He doesn't yet, but I believe he can develop into a better offensive player. I mean, he's got the athleticism and can shoot, and is what? 22?

yes 22. but he wouldve show me something by that age to make me think he can score say maybe 16 or 17ppg in FIBA or NBA by now. He's gonna have to utilize that set shot a lot more in the offenses he plays in because thats the only way hes gonna score in a consistent manner.

I love it when people just watch one game and assume they know everything about a player.

Batum doesnt create for himself, seriously? They ran a ton of plays for him during the whole tournament, and he was very effective when asked to carry the offense.
