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.
