This is something that USA team has had issues in the past (02,04,06)With.

In the Nba when you receive the ball you can walk two steps and then bounce the ball so you can attack the ring directly after the pass.

In Fiba you have to Bounce and then if you want to enter into the basket can make two steps.

Im Warning this because for the moment in the whole tournament the Referees have been "blind" to this infraction by Usa players, they would have still won every game by 20+ but some of the results would have been closer if 5 or 6 infractions that where made had been called correctly.

Im not the only one to notice this, Aito Garcia Reneses, Head Coach for Spain has too and he has Ofitially made a declaration asking the Referees to please respect Fiba rules.

So if the game is too close for your taste and they start Calling traveling , dont say that its being a rigged game, they are just folowing the rules.

In My Opinion Anyway, Referees will go on to be "Blind" since there is a LOT of economic interests for both Nba and Nike in the game and particualry since it is in growing market China, to allow the ref to give the slightest chance of an upset.

Anyway, Since Calderon is out, there is no way spain wins.

Yep, Here in the NBA we play more street ball...Lebroom is a perfect example.
