Team USA and Kobe are playing very well. Kobe looks very quick out there on both ends of the f loor.

Lets also keep in mind,the team we are playing is horrible. Especially the guards.

Great Half. Kobe not looking to shoot and is playing AMAZING D. Fun first half especially that play with Lebron and KOBE. Got me out of my seat

Was this that steal from Kobe and pass to LeBron? Or was this something I missed in the 2nd quarter?

Signal for me never goes out. I like what they offer more plus they will be getting over 50 new hd channels by the end of the year. :)

DirecTV doesn't allow me to cap HD channels. Also requires a one-year commitment and doesn't provide cable internet. So I'll stick with cable for now. They also don't require 1-year commitments.

The only thing i care about in this game is how Team USA executes against the zone. Other then that,we are supposed to beat this team by 30

Venezuela can't even handle the basketball there so horrible

Fantastic game so far, well, I mean as far as entertainment. USA still misses way too many shots, especialy outside shots and they had some lapses at the end of the half and gave Ven a little daylight. Kobe's defense at the begining of the game was unlike anything I've seen, that was incredible, unreal. Kobe and Bron are sick together and when Bron was out in the 2nd Kobe took OVER, scoring, dishing, Kobe's doing well. That pass from Carmelo to Bron behind the back to Kobe for the dunk was SICK, I jumped out of my chair. I know not all the games are gonna be this easy though, the competition will get much better. I've always loved USA basketball, but with Kobe on the team I feel much more connected to it and it's very exciting. And having to earn a berth in the Olympics also makes this mean something so it's been great so far to watch.

I live with my grandparents most of the time. We have Dish there and I like it because I'm used to the channels and interface but at my parent's house we have FiOs. It's okay.

i think this lineup would be the most effective right now:
Billups
Kobe
Melo
James
Howard or Amare
