theyve been better in the past, they are laking some of the better players too, trying to build on youth.

They are respectable and with the proper matchups could nag a medal but im not high on them this time.

Steph Curry or Gordon should be in there instead of Westbrook to provide some 3 point shooting.

That one announcer is lame, always mentioning that International Basketball is better than the NBA. :rolleyes:

It's funny because the NBA tightened their rules to help players adjust to FIBA's ticky tack fouls for the Olympics, and now the NBA is too soft. :laugh2:

So after watching this game in agonizing pain this is what I have concluded:

The trapezoid paint area is the stupidest part of international ball.

The 3 point line looks closer than the WNBA line.

The ability to play zone defense just encourages players to chuck 3's (well what they call 3s) up all day

You can offensive goal tend? WTF kind of gay **** is that?

International centers are so weak that the US is comfortable with Tyson Chandler and Lamar Odom as their 2 Centers.

I do like that they allow for hand checking. I hate that the NBA did away with that.

It is sad that a team with 1 real center and 1 real PF probably will make it to the gold round. A tourny of basketball with no/limited post play is not real basketball

Its a friendly game, kinda early to just give USA the gold.

the score didnt reflect truly the performace of Team USA agaisnt Lithuania. Team USA look horrible on offense. They trailed behind in the first half before turning on their defense in the 2nd half and got some easy baskets en route to this win. They need to discuss how to get offense rolling in a half court set against zone D.

Kevin Durant is way overrated, I can't believe experts have him as a top 3 player in the NBA.


Durant is not worth being mentioned in top 3
All the PGs can hardly make a play.
Curry and Love are a nice mix in the team, but they get no love.
Odom can't play in the paint, no D.
Chandler is weak.
Granger and Rose should have gotten more time.
Rondo was in a Kidd-mode, but he is no Kidd -in result got blocked, TO.

Actually the whole D was awful, too many TO (almost every time they passed inside).

Only Rudy Gay was solid.

Ok, the rules differ, a bit, and the size of the court makes it harder to make plays, but there is no excuse for this game, 7 points in the first Q say it all.


Lithuania played solid, more aggresively, couldn't make long-range shots, but scored inside, outplayed USA under the rim, at the end made more TO just because they tried different players, rotations and etc. LIthuania didn't have the best possible roster, but played really well.

USA has to step up or it's not gold.
