I've posted some of my thoughts I've had these past few weeks and months of the World Championships. Ironic huh?

way to follow the World Championships AppleNader, the Spanish already won their semi-final game, so the Argentines are the US's next opponent.

You don't hate to tell us this. You've been walking around with a boner for the last two years waiting to say "I told you so."

You just blew your wad.

Spain's in the final? EXCELLENT.

Go Spain!!!

I'm extremely glad the US lost. Another tournament of the US kicking the crap out of almost everyone on the way to a predictable gold would have pissed me off.

Let's hear it for parity!!!

No, teams that have had more time to gel together win. Especially when it's a win-or-go-home situation that always favors the underdog. What this loss proved AGAIN is that one month simply isn't enough time to form a team. Team USA AGAIN showed little to no offensive cohesion and nonexistant communication on D tonight while guarding the pick n roll. BUT I hope they keep the team together for the Olympics aside from some minor tweaks(Redd/Kobe for Miller/Jamison and better big men) and try NOT to prepare for the Olympics a couple of weeks prior to the games start.

BTW, does anyone think Greece would win one more game if they were playing a 7 game series against the current US team? I'd say we would just make the necessary adjustments(pick n roll D!!!) and roll over to a 4-1 series win. Heck, had we just made our FTs at a decent clip we WIN! As much as the international teams have improved, US is still significantly superior skills and athleticism wise compared to the rest of the world's best. Even when they play as well as Greece did today(63% FG) they barely win.

back in 1992 one of the opposing coaches said in american ball "they don't play defense, just offense and fast breaks." he must have been having visions of the future. anyway, we should own up to not being good enough and cohesive enough to win it all. and a damn fine performance by greece who played gritty d and hit every big shot. that's the thing about one game elimination, the team with heart and determination always has a shot.

he may not get the shot to play them, Gasol injured his ankle late in the 4th quarter against Argentina. Pray he recovers quickly
