I'd like to see LeBron score 31 points against Team Argentina when they actually have their top players like Manu, Oberto, Nocioni and Herrmann playing for them. When you're playing bad teams like the ones Team USA faced at the FIBA Americas, anyone can score big if they want to. We'll see who steps up when the real competition begins.

Lebron is a beast. I can't believe you don't pick him to be in Team USA because he has played better than Kobe and was a big part in the tournament. Did you see him in FIBA? He is my MVP Pick and will win his 1st Gold Medal In Beijing Olympics in 2008.

You should be banned for saying something that consistently happened for an entire tournament was "luck".

If you're going to make a topic, can't you come up with something a little more constructive or discussion-inducing than an "I told you so" post?

i hope you're not the same person who said argentina is gonna crush USA when the tournament started.

-BEFORE the tournament you guys sound like this-
>USA won't have a chance on argentina.
>"LEBRONZE" wont make make an impact and blah blah


-AFTER the tournament-
(USA blows out ARGENTINA and LEBRON scores 31)

> oh c'mon.....manu, oberto, and their other top players were not on the team.

excuses excuses excuses. fcuk 'em.

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.
I don't have an agenda, and I know quite a bit about basketball, and I'm not altogether sure exactly why we'd want D Wade on the team. His lack of range is a huge problem. We've already got athletes, finishers, creators to spare. There's nothing D Wade brings we haven't already got and he cannot shoot. What if he and JKidd are on the floor at the same time? How will we score?

Wade's a guy who needs the ball in his hands... let's be honest. Even moreso than Kobe. He NEEDS it to have any impact at all (at least offensively).

Wade's a top 5-6 player in the NBA but the international game is not good for him.

The people who said Lebron shouldn't be on the team are morons, that's all there is to it. It's not like having D Wade would make this team worse. He just wouldn't make us better, there would be no reason whatsoever to play him, and we'd have to be conscious of never having him and Kidd on the floor at the same time, or him and Chandler and Howard, because the lane would be clogged and nobody would be able to shoot. So his only impact would be one of complication.

So his only impact would be one of complication.

I believe that the knock against Wade's shooting is exaggerated. I watch plenty of Heat games and Wade has developed a solid jumper. Not spectacular but good enough not to continue to be used against him. It's the same as the Bron defense knock. People get lazy and don't bother to check a player's improvement when they've been labeled as something. I don't get how people missed what he did against the Pistons last year, and then in the FINALS against Dallas. He shot jumper after jumper (along with his penetration) in some of the most pressure filled moments possible. Further, to not believe that by next summer, he will have improved even MORE after another season in the NBA is just short sighted, IMO. To also assume that a player of his calibre won't have learned more about how to play FIBA ball in a future tournament is also wrong, IMO. These same knocks were being used against Bron, by the way. Can't shoot, needs the ball too much, etc.

Might as well say Kobe doesn't belong either. We have scoring, penetration, etc. and can pick up a Shane Battier type to play tough defense on the other team's best player. We can nitpick about the flaws in every player on the team and how if one player was gone, Team USA could still carry on however my view is that you don't jettison a player of Wade's magnitude, period.
