Title: Who Beating Team USA ??
Post by: big dawg on August 22, 2006, 06:11:10 AM
Team USA is poised to rise again over World Basketball.. Right now there ripping all teams apart some by more that 30 points...

After that dissapointing performance that was displayed in Athens, the players, coaches and officials have decided not to be embarrased in that manner again.

So here is the Bomb squad ..

COMPLETE 2006-08 TEAM USA ROSTER

PG: Gilbert Arenas, Chauncey Billups, Chris Paul, Kirk Hinrich, Luke Ridnour 
SG: Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Michael Redd, Joe Johnson, JJ Redick 
SF: LeBron James, Paul Pierce, Carmelo Anthony, Shane Battier, Bruce Bowen, Adam Morrison 
PF: Elton Brand, Shawn Marion, Chris Bosh, Lamar Odom, Antawn Jamison 
C: Dwight Howard, Amare Stoudemire, Brad Miller

co-captains, tri-captains, etc are fairly common in american sports teams.  most nba teams have 2 I think.

the roster listed is the whole pool of players that they will be choosing from.  Chauncey not in the 12 that playing in the championships now.  seems as if they are trying to build the team around bron, melo and wade

They've gone away form the Dream Team mentality and focusing on just the TEAM.  They're only using players that want to play for the national team and these boys have real passion to win this time.

The competiton isn't as easy as it once was but I think they'll take it this year.

WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL............They sent probably the best players in the NBA and they were still upset. The best the United States can hope for is yet another bronze medal.

Dem Greek players open up a clinic on the USA and beat them with some simple basketball...
 
Greece used a sizzling stretch of shooting across the middle two quarters to turn a 12-point deficit into a 14-point lead

Greece 101, U.S. 95

No Scene... No Scene at all...

Team USA just get outplayed..... No excuses will be made like Where was Kobe, or Iverson, or Vince, or Shaq, or others...

The European team wanted it more and they played like a team...Winning competition for these countries has more value to them than any NBA or NCAA championship... which is always the case in the USA..

I still happy that the yankees lost... :beermug:

If you watched any of the games you would have known that Carmelo was the leading scorer and best player for the US.. Although Bosh is a good NBA player, in the international game, he is not as effective because he is not a great passer, he cannot dribble and his shooting accuracy is inconsistent. :beermug: :beermug: :beermug:

Carmello lead them right outa the compitition  :rotfl:  :beermug:  :beermug:

Not saying dat he is not a good player, but his game is not suited for international competition. Carmelo is a pure shooter and he can also create his own shot off the dribble. Lebron too had trouble in this competition because his shooting is questionable. The US were beating bad teams by hustling,creating steals, and scoring in transition. It was literally a dunkfest, but when they were matched with a better prepared and more creative team, they imploded. Bosh's game is suited to the NBA, because of his athleticism, but unfortunately against goods teams in the international game this is a non-factor. :beermug: :beermug: :beermug: oh by the way the games were shown on ESPN

from the analysis i've read, the problems with team usa were at the defensive end - in particular defending the pick and roll. hard to believe that a team roll up 101 points on usa - but maybe the plan was to outscore every team? well, no quarrel with your points about the offensive capabilities of melo but better defense was needed in this game.
