Argentina 5-0 also. Who specifically is on that team that we'd have to lookout for? I know they've had injuries and I haven't kept up with all of them.

Luis Scola whose rights were traded by the San Antonio Spurs to the Houston Rockets and he'll be playing for them this year finally...

He's REALLY GOOD.

Carlos Delfino, plays for Detroit Pistons...

Missing:

Manu Ginobili (Spurs)
Andres Nocioni (Argentina)
Fabrizio Oberto (Spurs)

When will those three be back? I'd rather play them at full strength then without some of their best players =/

Same here Godfather, I like to play the best competition possible at full strength!!!

But hey!

What can ya' do?

Basically Argentina already knew and knows they're going to advance and qualify so they didn't bring their best.. sad, but oh well...
not that i wanted to see them beat the us...

but i did want to see us face their best team possible..

same for mex...

eduardo najera didn't play.
earl watson didn't play
lorenzo matta didn't play.

canada:
steve nash didn't play...

ETC...

i hate that!

happens a lot of with the national teams in futbol (soccer) too!

:(

(urgghh!!!)

We started off sloppy and out of sinc on the offensive end, nice to see we picked it up. Redd with his 2nd straight sub par contest, I hope he picks it up, we'll need him.

Notable player stats:

LeBron James - 23 minutes, 8/10 shooting, 3/5 from 3, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 21 points

Kobe Bryant - 24 minutes, 6/11 shooting, 2/4 from 3, 1 rebound, 2 assists, 14 points

Dwight Howard - 17 minutes, 4/6 shooting, 7 rebounds, 2 blocks, 9 points

Carmelo Anthony - 18 minutes, 6/11 shooting, 2/6 from 3, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 17 points

Was that sarcasm or no lol, because some guy said earlier he played for the Pistons so I cleared it up...

They got him for a 2nd round pick I believe.

LeBron is ridiculous right now, he's playing like the best player on this team. He's automatic from that internation 3-point line and he's dishing out sick assists. What was that dude's problem with Kobe, he never had to go against tough defense or something? What a baby.
