shot looks pretty damn decent right now. i dont mind him shooting 15 footers on the wing coming off hte bench. he can handle hte ball really well too, he isnt going nuts all over the floor either, hes in control

Oh yeah, I mean don't get me wrong. He can shoot it. It's just not his strong point.

I read the comments before watching the game and some people made it sound like the US were absolutely dreadful. They weren't that bad. Sure they let China hang around for the first 15mins but you can't expect them to have a 20pt lead by the 1st qtr. Besides China was on fire from the 3, given they were mostly open looks.

49-37 at the half.

I'm impressed with what I'm seeing from Sun Yue. His shot is good, he's not crumbling under the pressure, very calm and in control. He clearly has a lot of development left to go, but I think he can add something to our team we don't have at this point.

Yeah I love how calmed he looked out there. He wasn't forcing the issue and kept his composure when Kobe was on him. He has a couple nice moves to free up space for himself on Kobe. With some development, he's going to be a solid addition to the bench.

trodgers:

Wade: http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=wTrgLUY6iWM

make steps to receive, imagine in any counterattack


Kobe: http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=UHsS77zJvZc

so all.

U.S.A = steps in 80% of their attacks. Is simple, or we play with every fiba rules or not play none, but not only USA.

I like Collins and don't mind Sager, but Breen always seemed as a bit biased to his favorite players to me.

Never should have been even that close early. But the US team started out 1-16 on their 3pt attempts. Need to clean that up or it will be a problem against Spain and Greece. Also those two will not let the US get into the transition game so much.

Sun Yue looked alright; he can at least handle the ball under NBA pressure. So I'm OK with him coming to camp and competing.
