As long as the US can't shoot for jack, we gonna have a problem with good teams. Saying that, I hope the US wins though. :jam2:

I just love that during the Olympics I can watch basketball on TV without having to wake up at night, or staying up late. :man1:
GO US :jam2:

Kobe hitting outside shots is going to be absolutely key. I have faith that he'll perform better than he has the first two games.

Kobe is gonna have his 1st real tough defensive match-up, which will be good for him. I don't even have to worry about him working on his 3-point shot because we all know hes not happy going 1-15 in the last 2 games. He'll come out and have a good overall game.

GO TEAM USA :patriot:

^^^^ Good to see Kobe putting in the work scouting Greece by himself and then reporting back to the team!!

Who did Time Magazone say the Leader of TEAM USA WAS???

James has already said that he wants to destroy Greece...

I can't wait to see James vs. Diamantidis...

James is undoubtedly the best player of the tournament so far. Only Wade has been able to keep somewhat close to him far ahead of the competition.

Greece, Spain, Argentina, and the other top teams are the reason why TeamUSA brought Kobe and Kidd to TeamUSA. IMO, you will see a more focused effort from them tomorrow.

Angola and China are kids play. And that's basically what Kobe and Kidd did. They let the kids play.

Hopefully, they help lead us against Greece the way the youngsters couldn't do 2 years ago.

yeah, i'm expecting james to be the star of this one, not kobe. its james who has something to prove, and his teammates would be more than willing to help him achieve his goal. you know james isn't happy with his new label, "LeBronze" James...revenge has come. He'll step up his game, and more so than the rest of the team, IMO.
