    I believe Childress to Greece is just the start of the bigger scenario which eventaully sees Europe and the NBA becoming one league. Which I think will suck ass. Usually, the guys come over here to play and test their skills..not vice versa. We'll see what happens.

    Carmelo is a crybaby bitch and a quitter, I don't think he'll be carrying Team USA. Redd and Kobe I agree. Are those the only 3 you think that'll do anything in the Olympics? I missed the game tonight, but I'm interested in to who the Starting 5 of this team is gon be.

    I don't think it's just gonna be those 3 that are gonna do it all...but how well they play will determine how far this team goes... because they are the only consist outside shooters Team USA has...and The Euro's love playing zone defense...so Lebron and Wade will have a tough time late in the Olympics... USA is gonna need those 3 to shoot well EVERY night...if they're gonna have a chance to win it all.

    Don't get me wrong though...if Dwight Howard or Chris Bosh get in foul trouble or get injured early on, I don't think they're gonna have a chance in winning the Olympics.

    Todays starters were- J-Kidd, D-Wade, Kobe, Carmelo and Dwight...but it should change once Lebron is back.

    do you know how many minutes my boy chris bosh got? i think that dude could have a big impact for them if they end up winning, he's never afraid to hustle and with less scoring pressure he'd prolly rebound ilke a beast.

    but dwight is dominating.. i cant see them coming short of undefeated
    live and learn, dont be a bitch

    He will....Bosh is underrated and is gonna help them out against a team like Spain...but against Canada we went real small...Dwight Howard got 19 minutes...Bosh got 16 and Boozer got 8...Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Kobe and Carmelo were the only ones who played 20+ minutes.

    It really doesn't matter who the starting 5 is. You can start the 5 that don't start and we should be able to dominate the field. I honestly think that Team USA doesn't go hard because they're not in to it. I don't blame them. But if this team goes out there and puts in an NBA Playoff effort? There's no way we're not taking the Gold this time, again.

    ^That's the same kind of thinking USA had when they got the Bronze medal last Olympics...Winning with our best isn't gonna be easy.

    ^exactly.....while i think this might be the deepest team since the original dream team or
    dream team 2, Wade, James, Howard and Kobe are the top dogs.

    I think they should let LeBron run point cuz if they dont double he'll dunk everytime, if they
    do, than he's got Wade/Kobe etc. wide open.

    I dont see this team losing.

    THey should have won last time....Was that the Larry Brown/Marbury experiment???
    Marbury starting over James.....thats laughable even when Bron was a rookie.
    Look eye, always look eye.

    Larry Brown was such a shitty choice for that team...He hates playing young players...even though they were the best players on the team. Everytime Lebron, Carmelo and Wade got in the game they DOMINATED...but Brown gave the bulk of the minutes to Stephon and AI.

    And Lebron won't be able to attack as easily if the Euro's are playing zone...Especially with FIBA rules where hand checking is allowed...Outside shooting is the key to winning in International ball...That's why I'm saying Carmelo, Kobe, and Redd will be the most important pieces to make a run at the Gold.

    Zones are always beat from the Inside-Out...Not Outside-In

    Yea, but Bron is way to big fast and strong for dem euro's and south americans....He is going to be the best player on that team. And yes im biased cuz i get to watch all his
    games and i kno the truth

    lmao! I can tell you're biased (-_-)

    but on the real...Speed won't matter when playing against a zone...It won't matter if he gets past his guy because there's gonna be someone camping in the paint...waiting for him to drive...and someone in the wings waiting to collapse...The Shooters will be the best players...because they will be the ones getting all the open shots.

    However I'm not saying Wade/Lebron/Paul aren't gonna be key...because we're gonna need those slashers to create the open shots...but EVERYTHING will hinge on whether they can hit their shots or not.

    Look at what Michael Redd did last game...He scored 20 points on 8 shots.

    Quick update on the NBA...I don't feel like finding the links...but will post 'em later incase y'all don't believe me.

    Artest got traded to the Rockets for Bobby Jackson and a future first rounder.

    Balkman got traded to Nuggets

    Clippers just signed Ricky Davis.

    Pistons Signed Kwame Brown

    Okafor Re-Signed with the Bobcats

    Nuggets aren't making the playoffs next year...they have 0 defense...Najera and Camby were their best defensive players...and now they are gone...Balkman will help a lil' but not enough to make any difference.

    Clippers should be fighting for a playoff spot next year...but it will be hard in the West. A line up of Baron Davis, Gordon, Ricky Davis, and Kaman should give them good offense and Camby is going to help their defense a lot. Clippers are starting to turn this horrible off season around quicker than I thought....I'm still not sold on them making the playoffs...but only because the West is so tough.

    and I don't get why Rockets made that trade...maybe Battier is on the trading block now? Battier and Artest are very similar players...and I don't get why the Rockets would want 'em both.
