humm seems like it should be a good game

but i still wanna see them get crushed by 50 and Wade get like 25 points and make the unbelievable windmill ally oop look like a walk in the park with another sick play :D

well...problems so far (after Q1):
-kobe is still a ball hog
-kidd can't play d
-TEAm USA gambles for to many steals
-Paul can't play D either
-No one can make free throws
-TEAM USA are a better team with Williams, Wade, and Bosh on the court?
-the camera men suck...

their ball movement could improve too. and yes. paul is letting dudes penetrate way too easily right now..all tournament actually. we definitely need work on the half court set.

yes very true... but that all comes back to kobe (and melo for that matter) being a ball hog...

08-05-2008, 08:43 AM
also I think the USA's best team is Williams/Wade/Bryant/James/Bosh(or Howard)

I bet you Wade leads the team in +/-...Everytime he comes in they go on a run. I think he might be the best player on the team right now... him and lebron...

what a nice move by wade man...sickkk drive

daleja424
08-05-2008, 09:40 AM
wade can get into that lane at will... even with that tough zone

daleja424
08-05-2008, 09:42 AM
haha...new strategy for team USA: give the ball to wade and get out of the way... everytime wade touches the ball he either scores or sets up a dunk for someone else on a nice look

Wade is showing he is the most consistent player on the team so far and that side step drive in the 4th.... NASTY!!!

wade and bron the most consistant ones right now on both sides of the court. Kobe is trying too much, he needs to know he's not on the Lakers right now. the camera man arent killing me, the replays WHILE THE GAME IS STILL GOING AND YOU END UP MISSING PLAYS is whats killing me lol. U.S. needs to do a better job of rotating on defense. and on loose balls..go for the ball not just break out waitin for a fastbreak..saw that a few times. too many open shots cuz yea. bad rotation on the defense (especially when we double team) U.S. better not take these games for granted like we did in '04. teams are hungry..they are out to get us..we better step up like they will

great game by wade woke up at 8am today :D,
but wow wade 22points a game high for him, kobe pissed me off today he was trying to drive in like he was Wade, he should let the drive in to the basket to Wade :D, but wow WADE'S BACK! never doubted him

"Wade and the Americans won this one" - one of the commentators
wade's getting respect bacK :D
