Default if you care.. (usa vs ita trashtalk)

I came to know almost exactly what they (soragna and wade) were talkin about during yesterday's match:

Di Bella (Ita PG) wrote on his online blog that Wade said something like: "Hey, do you think to be a tough one?" (I'm re-translating in english from italian DiBella's quote, so I'm not sure.. is "tough" ok for a strong, aggressive player with no fear for the contact?) .. and Soragna would have answered something like "And who do you think to be, MJ?"

IMHO, nothing strange in that..but it was fun to know the exact words..

bye.

Default cant take it seriously

i remember luc longley (from new zealand) saying that trash talking in a foreign accent just doesnt have the same effect.

the us guys end up laughing because of the accent

maybe it doesnt apply here in international comp when the americans are feeling disrespected

but imagining how it must sound has potential for a comedy skit

chris rock--- are you hearing this?
