TOnight's Mexico's matchup should wake some kind of competitive fire in USA!

I agree with that. I fully expect us to trash Puerto Rico.

I don't think it's gonna be a blowout, just me. If we have 'trouble' with Mexico then I certainly expect us to have trouble with Puerto Rico.

Carlos Arroyo loves playing against us. Hopefully Kobe will use his size advantage and the rules to play him physically, and take him out of the game. This should be a fun contest, USA by 15 plus.

ya Arroyo will get his butt cooled off...Kobe and Kidd both play defense so Arroyo will get locked up.

USA bounces back and a blow out win.

Kobe shuts down whomever he guards again.

Fatigue will not set in.

Lol when are we playing Argentina? I can't wait for us to put away this notion that anyone in the world even remotely stands a chance against us.

it's getting tough for USA to have 60 point blowouts now.. I think they're not playing all-out to avoid injuries.. I agree with it.. we are going to win this tournament.. it's best to come out with all players uninjured..

i agree.. kind of.. but when garbage time comes our 50 pt lead will turn into a 35 pt lead..

on another note.. bron and melo are good offensively but damn they need work on their defense :mhihi:
