the game is pretty ugly and i know the reporters are going to kill the team today.

But i like the fact that we keep fighting when the score starts getting close

Now we have the lead back up to what we want it to be. More would be nice too.

I think the constant change of personell sucks.

Coach K needs to give his 5 on the floor some time to adjust themselves and get into a rhythem...but he is rotating every 2 minutes...so players never find their groove... :disagree: :disagree: :disagree:

I don't think we'rte big enough its stupid for Coach K to build a team like this. Any team that plays zone and 2 real bigs are gonna have their way with us inside. Its a pipedream to think that Lebron can play pf despite having the size he has no clue how to play post defense and gives ground far too easily and doesn't challenge shots so if they pull out Howard we have no weakside shot blocking.

I agree its killing the flow offensively.

He's still coaching this thing like an allstar game. To hell with hurt feelings play the best guys for long stretches.

Why did the Russian have to break that up? That would have been a sick oop

Did Kobe try to bank that? It looked like it from his release.

First the Lakers, now Team USA...

I think Laker fans know what I'm talking about...

it really sucks if your team can't grab any rebounds on either end of the floor...

Zone D isn't USA's strong point, to say the least.

Will team USA ever realize that international competition is not the all-star game? I don't think so...

every game they try and1 mixtape stuff to show the world how good they are...

Yea, he did try to bank it, I saw his reaction right when he released the ball.

I don't feel satisfied either. Game had parts where it was sloppy as hell. Never made you get into the game that much like the others did. Either way, at least we still won
