Hmm. I'll go with a 30 point win for the USA. Maybe 40 if they play really good defense.

I can't believe China beat Germany with Kaman and Dirk.

I think Germany spirit has been broken, and USA is going to blow it wide open early.

Win by 20. I don't think they'll be as up for this as they will be expected to beat Germany. This is a banana peel game for us, hopefully they maintain the discipline and focus they had against Spain. I still think we'll be too good.

Germany sucks...especially on the wing. James and Kobe will have a field day...actually chances are better only James has a field day.

Yah, they BARELY made the Olympics.. people see the names Dirk and Kaman.. but they're really not a great team.. we should hand them a beating. I doubt it'll be a total blowout though because we'll be bored.[/quote]

Bosh is on another level. His work ethic and talking on defense have been impressive.

Well I have a hard time believing Germany could beat our top flight college teams. They are horrendous and barely even qualified to get to the Olympics.
