Default Filthy Rich American Ballers

What do you guys think about Team USA being compromised of nothing but filthy rich people? think that plays a part on the court when the Americans are beating the snot out of peasants from China?

i always wondered how our filthy rich players on Team USA affected the game on the court. some of the other countries have piss poor members. i wonder if they get thrown off by the filthy rich, supremely confident Americans.

I think it sucks for other countries that our guys are so P-A-I-D, as well as famous and loved, and also are much better at basketball than them. I mean, America's awesome........we really are, and our players really are. God, it's good to be us



America (F*CK YEAH!!!!)

At the end of the day, money is money. but there are more powerful effects that one can lay on their opponent. and i'm going back to the original dream team. yes, all of those men were heavily paid and now their families will never have to worry about finding a job for the rest of their lives, but the Dream Team possessed awe and wonderment. these are two qualities that are not material like money is yet they deliver a much more powerful impact in your competitor's mind. The Dream Team had every game won before they stepped on the court because their opponent was in awe of them. LeBron and company have a long way to go.

if you don't think a farm boy from rural china is effected when he steps on the court and sees LeBron James, you're not dealing with reality. Basketball is a game that's more mental than anything and I simply want to see what kind of an impact the money may have on other country's players. money to them is making $100 a month, that is American dollars of course...

I quit buying jordans once they cost more than $120. i haven't bought a new pair of jeans, or outfits in over a year! i spend my money on big thangs, gobb. things like brand new cadillacs.

see, I'm american and i'm obsessed with money. who isn't? it's the american way. now you can see the light that many other countries see us in. As money obsessed monkeys running around doing good and bad for the almighty American Dollar. and what does it matter what a peasant in China would think of JPR, a nobody in America?

So you drive around in bedsheets? Or recycled gear where the jean color has went thru 4 different color changes? Botton of your jeans are shredded wheat and in a few more weeks they will turn into jean SHORTS? Uh huh, whats next you're gonna tell me you buy your gear from the Salvation army.

Yeah new caddys JPR, riiiiight. I really believe you. Ever think of having an ISH cribs and showing us all your cars? Could inspire and motivate posters here to get as many if not more than you! Pix please? I dont mind the crayons you use to draw on them either.

What the phuck would a homeless american who cant get change from you while you sit in your caddy eating a phucking GYRO think? How does he look at you, Bron and oher filthy rich americans?

Wait do you know the backgrounds of the china teams or you're making a generalization and assuming things out of your left & right butt cheek? How do you know how they feel/think? You're just making up things really.

"People overseas with nothing look at us americans as greedy, money hungry whores!!"

Making a pretty bold statement with this topic with no support nor basis. Just randomly spewing crap because you came across an info commercial with poor kids wanting a home. Donate 10 cents and feed 10 kids right? Thats what they told you? Got all sensitive and mushy. Shut up.

How does John Doe workin two jobs to make ends meet think of Bron filth rich self? Wait we dont know, gotta ask him because he just might not care. Might applaud Bron.

Get off your imaginary soap box you EMO. You're a hypocrite. Brag about the money you got then make a topic abot filthy rich ball players. Lame.

A guy like Lebron James was poor himself just 4 or 5 years ago

what does it mean that he now "lebron james the superstar"?

Who knows? Who cares?

he is not the first awesome baller/rich person and he wont be the last either...

the issue of money is only as big as each individual makes it.....If you are obsessed with money to the point that it is all you see when you look at different people, then you will be in awe of some people that dont deserve it.....Like I said, plenty of rich people on this planet...some deserving of admiration and some not soo much so....but you need to be able to look past the $$ signs in order to place things in their proper perspective....

Hey JordanPippenRodman, learn about the world sometime

Fact: America is looked down on and mocked by the rest of the world for thinking money brings prestige

Fact: Most of the world is racists towards blacks and would NEVER feel a jealous inkling in the slightest towards team USA

Fact: Showman ship and self-aggrandising in sport is as disgusting to the rest of the world as diving in soccer is to North Americans.

Fact: Simple minded morons like you who think pride is about nationality gives Americans a bad name.

Fact: had they lost a game you would have been calling them overpaid egomaniacs...wait a minute, that is what the rest of the world thinks...hmmm..
