I can't wait to see Kobe guard this Sponitious guy because from listening to the commentators hes one if not the best player guard wise for the Greece team

Baby Shaq isn't a superstar or anything, but he's had his moments for sure..

And I disagree.. both teams look pretty good.. Spain is in a dry spell, but that has a lot to do with Greece's defense.

The US has looked out of sync in the last two games, definitely didn't look better than Greece or Spain tonight in our last two matches.

Dwight Howard will man handle Baby Shaq. He may be 30 pounds lighter, but muscle is stronger than fat. And Baby Shaq has a lot of fat.

They should really play Calderon at the 1, Garbajosa at the 3, Marc at the 4 and Pau at the 5...... or Marc at the 5 and Pau at the 4

Yep, Spain is now playing great half court pressure defence, which concerns me if Team USA gets into the same problem.

OK what's the deal with commentators not actually being in China? Is this the norm for the Olympics and I just haven't ever noticed? All of the exhibition games the commentators did the same thing..

rudy fernandez is amazing. :jam2:

Spain cannot run with so many foults of greece ( 3º favourite for me for de gold, only spain and usa is superior ), of there the low scoreboard and small diferences. Spain likes to run since to USA and this game him does not go at all. The bench of Spain is very top like that that break the game sooner or later.

All the means give him to since pick 1 in the draft for 2009 or 2019, he depends on when he wants to go to the nba.

This game looks to be over.. Spain is hands down the best team other than the U.S... and now I do agree that Greece is a level below US, Argentina and Spain

47-31

Spain playing to another speed, it breaks the game. Much equip and bench for Greece: Calderon, Gasol, Navarro, Rudy Fernandez, Ricky Rubio, Garbajosa ..

Is the 1º match ..... the tournament is very long. Pau plays minutes importants in 1/4, semis, final .... Spain has very much bench, not tire to your star is a priority.
