what's the story on sarunas?

Saw this in an AP article
Kobe Bryant harassed longtime nemesis Sarunas Jasikevicius into a miserable night and helped the U.S. Olympic basketball team roll to a 120-84 exhibition victory over Lithuania on Friday night.

how is he kobe's nemesis? Or is it that he has give team USA problems in the past?

Not Kobe's nemesis, per se. But he nearly won the game for Lithuania against USA at 2000 Olympics, just barely missed that last 3pt'er as USA escaped with an 86-84 win. That should have been the big indicator that the world was catching up. But not yet,,, so this fellow hit 7 3's and had 28 points when Lithuania did beat the US 94-90 in the '04 Olympics. That was Team USA's first loss in the Olympics since the pros started playing for the team. So yes, nemesis to Team USA would be accurate. I didn't watch the game, but I did record it so I'll watch it later after work.

Kobe locked up that FOOL.

“Kobe locked him up. He got a couple of open shots throughout the course of the game, but when Kobe was on him, I don’t think he scored,” Boozer said. “I think he was actually a little tentative to shoot the ball when Kobe was on him.”


“This is what I do,” Bryant added. “I knew prior to it and they reminded me of it. So, sic the Doberman on him.”


“Kobe’s our best defender, hands down,” forward Carlos Boozer said. “And Kobe takes on the challenge of guarding their best perimeter player regardless of who it is, regardless if he’s a point guard, 2, 3, 4, whatever it is.”

This right here shows how small Kobe's hands really are. The ball just slips away. And if you look at the other angle pic, it's even smaller. :mhihi:

Did someone beat Coach K about the face??

And can Wade's face be any fatter?? WTH?

Well then Kobe would be not as good shooting the bball. Thats what everyone has always said about Kobe and MJ, Kobe can shoot a the basketball a little better than MJ can.
