USA vs Russia.......

Postby Ras Algethi on Sun Aug 03, 2008 12:55 am

Subpar offensive half by team USA. I still expect them to blow Russia out by 30+ when its all said and done.

I think we need to stop giving Paul and Williams the ball for high pick and roll so much. When Team USA can't run and its in the half court, Wade, Kobe, Melo, and LeBron look out of sync because they aren't touching the ball nearly as much as the point guards unless they are running.

USA aren't going to beat the impressive team that Spain is ... all these gambles on the defensive end won't work against the best teams ... USA offense is just 1 on 1 B-Ball , no team offense .. don't be fooled by the boxscores so far .. USA is in trouble

They'll be ready and focused to whip Spain. They have been sharing the ball wonderfully in the exhibitions don'tknow where you get the idea that its been 1on1.

They are not in trouble. They're not gonna play gamble and run out ball on good teams. They are playing that way in this game because the coach is telling them to push up on the ball.

BTW Spain lost to this team at home recently in Spain.

Holden is too quick for Kobe...he can blow past him, we need to play Paul against him.

and WTF is wrong with Howard...he is absolutely useless today. Its a layup drill for Russia in this 3rd quarter with no Howard in sight

The pick and roll is killing them. They're unsure whether to swtich off on Holden or not and when they do (like the last play) he's getting by them.

these are THE BEST players in the NBA, i don't think 1 on 1 play is going to hurt them......the 2004 team did not have the best players in the NBA.

Kobe's scoring but Melo isn't guarding anybody.

Thats exactly the point. They HAVE to switch because Holden is too quick for Kobe to recover. But they choose to stay loose and then someone gets to the rim.
