The Olympics channels are only available if you have digital cable or a TV with a clear qam tuner. I'm not sure what channel it is for qam though.

After that offensive photo Spain took, I'm rooting for China in this one.

Anyone see Pau posterize Yao baseline? It was pretty sick.

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

BEST VIDEO EVER ... AND AND THE SECOND BEST.

Is there any doubt Yao will have a big role in the NBA even after he retires?

That was an awesome 1st half.

The crowd seemed to boo much louder as the game progressed. I wonder if that racist photo had anything to do with it?

If it did, Doug Collins had absolutely no idea because he was trying to say they were saying "Ruuuuudyyy" instead of "boooooooo." :man10:

Then they finally realized they were booing other players in addition to Rudy Fernandez.

China has a good chance of pulling off the upset, I'm rooting for them to win this one.

Watching this game makes me feel good about our slow start against China. They're not a bad team at all. And the fact that Spain doesn't look invincible right now is encouraging.

This is all true, but also if Spain does lose, think of how desperate they'll be to win when they play the US later.

How cool is it to watch Gasol and know that he is our player. Probably the first time that we've had a Euro of his caliber....well since Vlade.

China needs to be careful though. They cant sit on the lead.

Let them be desperate. US talent will overcome their desperation.

China's got to be careful. They seem out of control and are throwing some bad passes. They're winning because they're hitting their jumpers.

China have got to stop with his high screen and roll crap. Get the ball to Yao on the block and spread the floor.
Even if he is hurt, he is still the best option.
