Same idiots who will now say DWade doesn't belong on the team.

These are just peopel with agendas, who don't know anything about basketball. They let their personal feelings towards Wade get in the way of what is actually good for team USA, and how good Wade actually is.

Tell me one thing that Wade can do for team USA that they don't already have from someone who does it better. Just one.

Lebron probably shocked thousands of people this past week.

he must've hit the gym hard after the Finals, because for the first time in his career he looked like a great jumpshooter. I didn't think he'd be able to shoot from the field like Melo or Kobe. im haunted by the 04 Olympics and his performance last year. He's done away with that.

Im a big Lebron fan but for the most part i've seen Lebron as a guy who is built like a tight end that plows into the paint like a train. Unstoppable, but without a solid jumper. For the first time to me, he looked like a classic basketball player. that was awesome.

I remember the garbage arguments for why Bron shouldn't be on the team too. Wade is a top 5 NBA player, who was playing arguably the best basketball in the league before he went down last year. Further, by the time the Olympics roll around he will no doubt be an improved player, after another year in the NBA and he ALSO has FIBA experience. Why people expect that players won't get better in FIBA ball (though Wade played solidly last year in the World's) is beyond me. He adds another high level player, who can penetrate, pass, score, get steals, blocks, etc. In my opinion, only a moron (with an agenda) would say he doesn't belong on this team.

I was quite vociferous about not wanting LeBron on the team. He played well in the FIBA Americas, and he should continue to play well if he continues to buy into the team concept, share the ball, and cut down on the ill-advised shots.

I wouldn't say he has proved me wrong, however. We'll see how he does when the real competition starts. If he is the great teammate at the Olympics that he was at the FIBA Americas, I'll gladly swallow my pride and say that I was wrong. If the games get close and he decides to "take over" by trying to do everything by himself and by jacking up bad shots, I will continue to question his inclusion on the team.

Make no mistake, I have no agenda, other than wanting to do what is necessary to take back what is rightfully ours.

LeBron just got lucky with his jumper this tournament. Not gonna happen again.

There are still a good 5-6 players that I'd rather have than LeBron on Team USA.

Had Argentina sent their REAL team, they would have easily beaten Team USA...and LeBron would have reverted back to the "LeBron" of old.

Not impressed one bit with any player or Team USA in general.

Thank God this crap-fest is now over. Now let's see Melo and LeBronze play like this against NBA competition.

How does BULLS get the "troll" moniker, and Poseidon doesn't?
