it's weird to think that a team with lebron james, dwyane wade, dwight howard, elton brand, carmelo anthony and other world-class players can be beaten, but i think argentina has a legit shot of taking it all. they're more used with the fiba rules, they've played together for ages... most of all, they've won it all before - and they seem to be even better now. they have it all: speed, scoring, defense, smartness, heart, experience; slashers, shooters, bangers, playmakers, 6-10 dudes shooting 3's...
pepe sanchez (their pg) is playing great ball, and i don't think anything has to be said anymore about the nba-caliber guys like nocioni, ginobili, herrmann, scola and oberto. usa better be VERY, VERY careful with them if they want to bring the gold home.
