nbcolympics.com = same way. you can hear the players on the ct thats kinda cool.

i hope nocioni doesnt foul out hes got like 3 fouls already ;x they only get 5 to foul out here.

heh it kills me how he camps the 3pt range with his hand up.

someone needs to do a 'machine' like video for nocioni. that would be awesome.

I see the U.S. beating Spain by 25 pts. or so, the Spanish team doesn't have the inside presence of a Scola and they don't have the athletic ability to keep up with the U.S. Team USA has way too many weapons on offense: lebron can get hot, Kobe, Wade, Bosh, Paul, Melo, Howard, and the list goes on.

Im eager to see your next defeat in the Next WORLD CUP, where half current team wont care to go back and they wil be overconfident again , and so they will fail again.

remeber you may win this one but out of the enxt 3 or 4 olympics you all only get 2 more and lose other 2

uhh that wont happen, the players make a commitment to the team so they cant just not go and be overconfident lol thats not how it works, this team is unstoppable right now and given the young age of almost every player on the team, its gonna stay that way for awhile, USA!!!

The more games I watch, I see that Kobe is not a USA type player. Im so damn tired of his 1 on 1 mentality, when he chucks up 3s and tries to out dribble people.

He *****es about every call he thinks should be called on him, its pathetic. Were shooting like hell today so he takes a deep 3 while Argentina's on a 13-2 run or w.e and he decides to take like 3 threes while covered well in the next 5 possessions.

I'd feel two things. One I would feel like whoever was doing that was a classless piece of ****, and they're probably cheering because they're a waste of space and won't amount to **** in life and are glad i'm injured because they won't know deep down they're own life is pitiful and lonely.

At the same time I would know I'm something great. I would know you only get that kind of hate because you're doing something great yourself. It would motivate me to show them they're fools for doubting, fools for cheering my pain and loss and they're going to be embarassed when I take it to them the next time I'm out there.
