great point made there... gil sure could have helped not to mention kobe as well as chauncey But yes an enforcer would have helped a big body in the paint...is there an american player that can fit that bill...?

Re: The Other Shoe Drops for USA Basketball

Ron Artest and Michael Redd are two guys right off the top of my head that team USA could use

Re: The Other Shoe Drops for USA Basketball

Actually, for once, this group of guys actually played hard and played well together. I am not too disappointed this time around, we actually played respectably.

Greece was a good team who had a great night. They earned it.

As mentioned, you do have to remember that a lot of these foreign teams are used to playing with each other and are more established than our "all-star" team that gets thrown together. The foreign teams do have a few NBA guys who join late, but for the most part, they know each other's games already.

Re: The Other Shoe Drops for USA Basketball

Three point shooters or no, it's a flat out disappointment that this team can't go over there and dominate. When we had three point shooters, the excuse was they don't play team ball, we don't have them we lacked zone busters.

I think the some of the comments by the Greek players and coach were warranted following the victory over the U.S. They said, "basketball is more than dribbling and shootig", and another said, "big time players show up for big games."

ESPN.com: Page 2 : A new game plan for Team USA

Not a bad idea

Re: The Other Shoe Drops for USA Basketball

Chuck Klosterman has become my new favorite Page2 writer even though he only writes a handful of articles a year. I've got to read some of his books sooner or later.
