Maybe when Marbury leaves, the season after, Italy then goes on to the Finals of whatever league they play in.

in all international competitions i've EVER watched, french team had HUGE troubles to score. (even against bosnia-herzegovina: )

everyone clogs the lane and dares them to shoot. and it works. pietrus airballs FIBA threes. diaw can't hit a 18 footer to save his life, not to mention three. ditto for parker. they manage to win games just by athletic superiority and dominating the boards - but never against top squads. they're just better suited for NBA game.

and yes, italy is going to be really scary in a few years. danilo gallinari is a huge talent.

Someday encompases the times between now and forever, so I'll give you the possability. However I think that by the time the Olympics roll around the U.S. will actually haev a TEAM not a bunch of all-stars thrown together. I wish that Duncan or even Shaq had gone this year, cause we could have built around them, AND they are seasoned veterans, but I like the bigs available so..... as long as we don't face zone or the pick and roll :

Perfect summary of the french national team. Pietrus cannnot shoot, and every ISH members seems to want their team to throw the MLE at the dude, but apparently no GM wants him, because they know the truth.

dude, it was a joke... because Marbury is a team cancer and any team he leaves instantly becomes contenders the following season.

Knicks will be going to the ECF in two years, watch. hahahah

Tody, Italy can not compete with teams like Spain. Maybe in two or three years they can have a very competitive starting five and some backup players to fight for the medals.

So people are assuming Kobe or Marbury will take italian cityzenship and play for the national team? Or are you talking about a specific team as Bologna or Benetton?

If by go to play to Italy you're thinking of the italian squad, it is quite stupid, even for a joke.

I'll ignore all of this random Marbury and French talk and get back on point.

When I say someday, I mean while Belinelli, Bargnani, Gallinari, etc. are in the primes. So you guys get and idea, let's say around the 2012 and 2016 olympics. That entire decade will see Italy VERY competitive. Like where Spain and Argentina are now.

you are the one that is quite stupid..I was talking about the Olympics and Kobe is eligible to play for Italy because he is nationalized or something like that...He was an Italian citizen for sometime...

So try researching before you make yourself look stupid
