  • U.S. loses to Italy in B-Ball

    Jesus, if this doesn't point out the me-first attitude in the NBA is not the way to go then I don't know what does. The NBA of the last 10 years has been a disgrace. They think the whole game is dunks and forgot the fundamentals.

    USA NBA stars gets b!tch slapped.

            The team is not made up of the cream of the crop if you will.
            The roster consists of Carmello Anthony, LeBron James, Richard Jefferson, Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Dwayne Wade, Carlos Boozer, Stephon Marbury, Allen Iverson...

            There is no Kevin Garnett, no Jason Kidd, no Tim Duncan, no Ray Allen, no Kobe, no Shaq, no Chris Webber, no Vince Carter.

            Clearly, the team being put on the floor does not represent the very best that the U.S. has to offer.

              Doesn't matter, they are millionaire professionals that are supposed to be the best in the world.

                Doesn't matter. This only proves that basketball is worthless.

                It's a sissy primadonna game, played by a bunch of sissy primadonnas.

                  Actually Tim Duncan is on the team. And thank goodness, because he's the only one that seems to care.

                      I forgot to mention that every single one of them is grossly overpaid, as well.

                        Yes, you are right, and i am in no way trying to defend them, but realize that the international talent pool has grown by leaps and bounds...the U.S. is not playing the same caliber of team they were in 1992 when the first dream team came around (and there is also no bird, jordan, or magic playing)

                          that goes for every professional athlete. Period.

                            Indeed, especially if they can't even play.
                            It says they got called for traveling and missed alot of their shots from the field. The NBA has been letting them get away with traveling for awhile, I guess this has finally exposed them.

                              your right about the league letting them slide on somecalls and the international play wont. but who ever picked the team screwed up and handicapped them right of the bat by not having a pure outside threat on the team. all we got was drivers and finishers no pure shooter,and unless someone comes through and can shoot, the worlds teams will stack the paint like italy did
