Kobe is racking up too many shots.
Lebron and Wade are carrying this team.

Howard is doing his part.

I like the contact the officials are allowing, it's a much tougher game than the NBA.
I'm amazed by Lebron's ability to distribute the ball like a PG and control the post like a PF. At one point, he was the tallest player the USA had on the floor.

Craig: "Seems like you found your 3 range a couple steps back of the nba line."

Kobe: "Oh yea I definitely feel more comfortable back there. Where they have the 3 line now I usually shoot fade aways from." (laughs and walks away)

They were up 30 when he started pouring in 3s.. When the game was close in the 1st half Lebron kept the distance. Lebron been BY FAR the best all around player this tourney

Even if you want to put down Kobe, to say Lebron is the best by far above all else when you haven't considered Wade's performance is a joke.

People just got glimpse of how wade isn't going to be a factor as the games progress and the competition gets harder, teams are starting pack it in, wich means team usa will have to shoot more, this is where Melo comes in. If you notice in the first half of this game, wich players were bringing the O,and wade wasn't one of them. People will realize why Melo is so important to this team. You will see why in the last two games he will be the most important player on this team. And the reason, He is the best all around offensive player in the game today, wich traslate to unstoppable

I agree with most of your points up until that, Kobe and Lebron are better offensively because they have better court vision. Melo's a damn fine playmaker but KB and LJ are much better passers. Thus, better offensively.

Just what I saw, kobe padding his stats when the game was over.

I have come to like LeBron much more as I have seen him game after game score 18 in the 1st half and then coast, mostly trying to get other players in the game. He is clearly the best but shows no interest in padding his stats.

When it counts I want the scoring going through LeBron, Wade, Carmelo, Bosh, Howard & then kobe.
