This will be a good match. Don't expect USA to just kill them.

I didn't realize how big Joe JOhnson it (I knowhe is standing on a step behind LEB I mean compared to the guys he is on the level with) or how short Brand is - he is smaller than Jamison in that shot.

I was knocking myself out trying ot figure out Nate McMillan.

Who is the coach above Mike K and next to Mike D

Then-2004
-USA beats PR by 25 in exhibition game
-PR settles into zone D and beats USA by 19 when it counts

Now-2006
-USA beats PR by 45 in exhibition game
-PR settles into zone D and beats USA by 13 when it counts


Just some pessimistic predictions
