Default USA Basketball going nowhere unless it's Kobe's team...

I see the US team having huge chemistry issues unless everyone defers to Kobe.

The only one I worry about is Lebron. Melo knows best. Kidd knows. Amare knows. Everyone knows except Lebron.

Does Coach K have the cajones to bench Lebron in the closing minutes of a crucial game? Kidd, Melo, Kobe, and 2 big men (dwight/amare/boozer) should be in at the end of a game... its a fact.

"defers..." huh?

ALL the kids mentioned above (possibly with the exception of Kidd) need to all shush up with this nonsense talk of who the "leader" of the team is.

Melo will lead in scoring. Kobe will "lead" the team tho.

from what i saw in the playoffs this past season the last person coach k needs to worry about from a teamwork aspect is Lebron... he's a lot more of a team player than some on that roster

The problem is when players start worrying about whose the leader instead of meshing cohesively.

willy is a good poster, btw.

The only thing Melo will lead the team in is SHOTS ATTEMPTS.....because he does nothing but "chuck" the ball.

Kobe will lead the team in points, steals and clutch shots made.

Melo knows his damn role....so does everyone else on that team. LeBronze better START to know his role or else there's gonna be some serious issues (ie his ass being benched).

Yes because we all know how successful teams are when they are built around Kobe.

Didn't Gilbert FAKE an "injury" from the last Team USA try-outs because the coaches were about to cut his one-dimensional ASS and he wanted to save face?

Yeah that's what I thought.

Ooooh, super burn. Just try responding to that one wiz. He totally dissed a basketball player who you've never met or had any contact with.

I don't think they should defer completely to Kobe. Just work together, spread the scoring more. But Kobe is for sure the one to take big shots. (Kidd can also be given the ball to make a play)

Wrong you clueless dimwit. I was merely pointing out a FACT. No need to come to the defense of your internet butt-buddy.

Considering they gave Shaq away in order to rush to re-sign Kobe, I'd say... yes.
