USA easily.

They are playing really well right now - but they were not tested yet.

Until they face Argentina with their main players, Lithuania, Spain, even Croatia this time.

But this should be a piece of cake for team USA.

What I love the most about this team is that they aren't even giving squads the opportunity to think they can beat them. That's the USA domination I remember. This has been an incredible showing. I knew Kobe and Kidd would make a huge difference. I didn't think it would be like this.

The fact that they only beat Argentina by 15 points last time is unexcusable. If they don't beat Argentina by 30 this time, they mine as well not even show up in 2008.

I don't mind the 15 point margin when they only scored 76 points. Fact is, you gotta score to beat Team USA. 105, and you're probably in it. 76 will NEVER be enough to beat this team.

We shot our worst and still won by 15. Why?? Because this team, unlike others in the last 4-5 years, actually defends and has players that care about defending.

The true test will be in 2008.

What happened to JKSnoots? Ever since he got owned by his "barbosa is going to have a field day" against Team USA comment, he's been mia.

Hey, believe what you want. There isn't anything going on in the world that these guys don't see on a nightly basis in the NBA. It's always been a question of whether or not they cared to try to stop anybody.

That question's been answered with the additions of Kobe and Kidd.

I know this game doesn't mean anything really since they clinched, but I'm sure they want that gold anyway. Plus, you gotta keep Jason Kidd's unbeaten streak alive, you just gotta.

I was just thinking the same thing. It's kind of orgasmic, but not in good way. More like in a pervy peeper kinda way. Very strange.

This has been sooo much damn fun, I don't want it to come to an end. This team was entertaining to watch and Im goin to miss watching them dominate til next summer.
