Game 1: Sun. 8/10 - USA vs China - Predictions/Comments

Postby TXLAKERFAN on Sun Aug 10, 2008 8:29 am

I wouldn't fall in love with Yue yet. From what I have seen since we have drafted him is that he is terribly inconsistent. If he continues to play well throughout the Olympics then I'll be impressed.

Not defensively or from a playmaking standpoint.

Yeah I'd have to agree, looked like he had a case of the jitters when the game started.

Wade has been what I expected him to be. The Jet fuel off the bench.

In 80 % of the attacks USA does travels ( of exit ). Is horrible, selections as Spain, Greece or Argentine that are very competitive are going to protest much because it is shameless.

You rule fiba for all! :mad1: :mad1:

Did you just come here and tell the US that they've ruined basketball? It smacks of being pathetic, man.

Simply, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Howard, Wade etc etc ... they do traveling in every play or counterattack with FIBA rules, they give two steps of more in every play.
