what channel?
“If somebody had their life on the line, and they’ve got their options on who they want to save their life – tell me who you’re going to pick?” Bryant asked. “You’re going to look at the stats first?”

Too bad Raja Bell's not playing, I'd love to see Kobe and the guys run him out of the gym. Then again he'd probably injure Kobe or someone so it's all for the best.

I'm actually really disappointed when countries don't get to send their best guys out there; it's much more fun to watch higher quality basketball.

It's not like one guy will make a difference against our team anyhow. He'll still get smoked as will that team.

I actually think the Virgin Islands will fare better than Venezuela. I mean they can't be as bad as Venezuela. Can they?

Tim Duncan should play for the Virgin Islands, but no he wanted to play for the USA in the past so he wouldnt get waxed off the floor by the USA.

Yeah, and he hates FIBA style basketball too. He's never going to play again, I guess.

Looks like the VI team will force them to make free throws and 3 pointers.

Kobe and Bron play really well together. You can see the chemistry there.

21-9 USA. Playing great so far, DHoward had 2 straight blocks there. Howard is just toooo big for these guys. Kobe has 2 fouls early for the 2nd straight game but he hit a 3.
