Hibachi Wants to Come Play

Postby THE_DAGGER on Thu Jul 26, 2007 3:32 pm

Looks like Gilbert had a chance to play with the USA team...the USA under 21 team that is. :mhihi:

He talks about the Men's team as well. He still seems a little bitter from being cut last year. :man10:


Looking Like Chucky Atkins
I ran up and down for the first time with the USA Under-21 Team. I don’t know what to call that team actually, they don’t look like they’re under 21. I’ll just call them the USA College Team.

They were down in D.C. at the Verizon Center so I played with them. I hit a couple buckets, you know, but that’s all I can say. I couldn’t jump and stuff them, I was looking like I was Chucky Atkins out there around the rim. The stroke was there, but I was looking like Chucky on the vert.

They were just playing hard, that’s what I expected. That’s why I wanted to play. I went out there to sweat it out for the first time and try to get my leg underneath me and see how much I’m favoring it. I would have gone out to Vegas, but those boys have been working out the whole summer. I didn’t want to get cut again before I even got started.

I heard that Mike Bibby is hosting a 1997 championship reunion at Arizona and I’m supposedly going to be there. Why am I going to be there? I didn’t win a championship. We lost to DUKE! The man I lost to in the championship is the man who cut me from Team USA. He cut me like Arizona beat Duke and he wanted payback. I think that’s the hardest part. I was thinking because they won that he was going to help me on the team, you know, maybe he’d feel sorry for me.

But, I’m over it. You know, Team USA should do well this year. I was looking at the roster and they’re finally putting a roster together that looks like it can compete -- they got shooters, they got all around players. I don’t know about some of the players, I’m not sure if they’re really USA Basketball material, but at the end of the day if they pick it, they pick it. It needs to be a versatile roster in the end.

Gilbert would be the best player for USA after Melo and Kobe.

The guy can flat out shoot.

Yes he can, at times.

He's pretty inconsistent and, to put it simply, has a chucker mentality.

Sure, I think he should try out, but it wouldn't really improve us that much if he did or didn't.

We need Ray Allen more than we need Arenas, and they'res NO WAY Ray Allen is playing for USA. SO gil, goodbye friend. We DON'T need YOU.

PLEASE take him off of the unavailable list!
