it would be embarassing for Euro basketball if USA can win with their C team. for the sake of world basketball i wouldnt want that to happen.

so far the big euro teams are playing like shit and thats the problem Spain have looked like shit and the Serbs will beat them in the quarters if the refs do their job properly and not just give all the calls to the Spanish. i think only Argentina can beat team USA but thats because Scola would eat up the American frontcourt. everyone else pretty much sucks.

but to be fair not everyone is playing with their "olympic" team, spain doesn't have pau gasol, argentina doesn't have ginobili & nocioni, and australia doesn't have andrew bogut. all who would probably be a part if this were the olympics

Slovenia is currently beating up Australia.

But we don't have any chance in the next round.

well we play you guys next. i remember us losing to Slovenia in the Eurobasket and that totally fucked us up. hopefully we win now, we made easy work of France today to my surprise. Slovenia are a good team and will probably go in the game against Turkey as favourites because of the fact that our team just chokes on the big occasions.

Well its Lithuania after the Jasikevicious (spelling??) era so nobody knew what to expect. on top the Lithuanian team hasnt been as strong as they have been before in the past couple tournaments.

for ppl new to FIBA basketball ppl like to use the number of NBA players as a way of measuring how good a team is. Greece has no NBA players but they are a Euro powerhouse. Same with Lithuania. being a team is more important in international ball. I mean the French team has the most NBA players but today against Turkey they were absolutely shit.

last time i remember the usa national basketball team losing we had lebron and carmelo leading the squad in 2002 with george karl. that team was an embarrassment and another mark against lebron's career.

you sure you mean 2002? lebron & carmelo weren't even in on that roster, as lebron was still in high school & carmelo was barely starting college.

it was the 2006 team at the world championships in Japan. Lebron, Wade and Melo were all on that team. they crushed everyone until the semi-finals where they got butchered by the Greek Pick and Roll.

this guy has literally raped Dwyane Wade.








USA will not take this tournament. Turkey is very strong, Spain is doing well even without Gasol, Brazil is a serious team. I wouldn't underestimate serbian team neither.







btw, USA was defeated many times during the last decade: Argetinians 2x ('02 and '04 (USA appeared with sick team), Serbia did them once ('02 in Indianapolis), and Greeks had the most glorious victory back in '06( Lebronze James, lol hah) .









anyway, Turkey is a no 1 contender right now.

Ersan Ilyasova iz one sick Uzbek.

Not surprising that Lebron blew opportunities then also.

This is who I would send to London in 2012

Centers:
Tyson Chandler
Andrew Bynum
Greg Oden

Forwards:
Amare Stoudemire
Kevin Durant
David Lee
Rudy Gay

Guards:
Derrick Rose
Russell Westbrook
Brandon Roy
Eric Gordon
Tyreke Evans

Alternates:
Danny Granger
Rajon Rondo
Al Jefferson
John Wall
Demarcus Cousins
Stephen Curry
Bradon Jennings
Andre Iguodala

I know what you're thinking, Oden? Bynum? Fuckers are always too hurt to compete. Although that may be true, I would give them the spot on the roster, and if they do get hurt, Fuck you got both Al Jefferson & Demarcus Cousins ready to fill in for them.

Oh and by the way, I'm serious about not wanting anyone from 2008 Redeem Team on the 2012 roster. And then there's this dude from Baylor named Perry Jones, that I'm gonna keep my eye on.

Derrick Rose and Keven Durant are the future of the NBA. These guys are representing hard for the USA national team. Iguodala and Love holding their own too. The USA team lacks height. We need bigger guys. Odom and Chandler isn't enough.

The FIBA 3-point line is a little closer.

USA plays winner of Russia and New Zealand next. Check it out here: http://turkey2010.fiba.com/pages/eng.../brackets.html Next USA game is on Thursday.

We barely squeaked out that Brazil game.

fair argument. i find it abit fucked that players like Lebron, Wade and Howard choose when to play for team USA. if this current team playing in the world championship wins it and gets qualification for 2012, it would be totally out of order to just brush them aside to be replaced by the bigger names. players gotta commit to the national team, if they are unwilling to do that then they should just be left out. there are cases which i understand for example Pau Gasol and Dirk Nowitzski they were always with their teams. from World championships, Olympics to Eurobasket or even sometimes in Germany's case Eurobasket qualifiers. they aint with their teams this year but they can be excused cause for the past 6-8 years they been with their national teams every year. but the American superstars i mean they need to understand that the national jersey is more sacred than all others, and when it calls you answer.

in soccer if players dont join the national team they will get ass-fucked by the media and fans. they will probably never see the national team jersey ever again.

anyway Team USA just hurt Angola bad. it was a total mismatch but still fucking hell even Tunisia put up a bigger fight than Angola did.

most like the USA will play Russia who are also weak this tournament. its an easy walk to the semi-finals really. while on the other bracket you got a proper European Championship going on with Spain, Serbia, Slovenia and Turkey.

I got zero faith in this Turkish side i know we playing great and do have the tools to even beat team USA with our massive frontcourt. but we are going to choke so badly i can feel it. always happens. has happened since 2001 when we had our golden generation. happened then will happen now.

i don't think Turkey's team fom '01 was a 'golden generation'. I mean, Kutluay and Erdenay (sorry for misspeling) were fuckin huge legends, Kutluay was one of the illest 3p shooters, but the team from this year's competition has everything+ the coach is good. the weakest links in turkish team are outside players (pg/sg)

the greatest problem of turkish basketball is coaching staff.




USA's bracket is easy, excluding argentina and brazil.
