Kobe , why you gotta be all selfish. :mhihi:

Kobe didn't play so well tonight but Im confident he will bounce back. Overall US just didn't look the same, but you gotta tip your hats off to Mexico.

Aside from that erratic run he had, he has played much more control. That shot was fine, i can't believe he missed that.

Parada's not bad out there maybe we should look into him?

Two things determine how Team USA plays.. JKidd on offense, Kobe on defense.. those two have to be the pace setters.

Chauncy Billups is not a transition player, at least not like Kidd and his increase in minutes tonight was a momentum killer. I have no porblem with Chauncey but damn he slows the game down a liitle too much. :disagree:

What a shot by S.T.A.T., heheh...

I think Kobe played OK, not that great, but not that bad either. Overall, US's offense was good, but their defense let mexico score 93.

Yeah, our offense was fine. I mean, we put up 125pts and counting. Our defense was the main culprit, we've already gave up 93 pts. By far the most in any game so far.

Still, you have to give Mexico credit. They payed a great game.

Which is the reason that I predict that they'll be turning the D up several notches in the next game, I believe the team knows that their intensity wasn't there this game, and they'll more than make up for it.

LoL. Dwight drops them too, though not as often.


Dude, I thought you were kidding when you called him that, but you're right. I've seen him loose balls where he has both hands on it. How does a guy with such hands lose balls so easily?

I honestly thought kobe played good d, one play where he gave up was when that 7 feet dude hit that open 3. He didn't come out to close him. But i thought he hustled well.

His erratic play in the 2nd quarter was the worst he has played in these past games
