I watched the DR play Lithuania the other day, it was pretty funny. Al Horford was dribbling through his legs and trying to cross guys over at the 3pt line, and Francisco Garcia was celebrating a couple threes he made in the first 2-3 minutes of the game like they were clutch buckets in the 4th quarter. The DR center(Martinez is his name I think) was by far the most fun player to watch. Send a double team his way and it's an automatic turnover lol.

I really hope our squad tries to embarrass them like the dream team did to their opponents in both exhibition play and the actual Olympics(probably not gonna happen in the actual Olympics though, given how good International competition has gotten).

To be honest, after D12 and Bynum, all American Born Centers in the NBA suck. At least Tyson Chandler has a Defensive Player of the Year Award.

Who else is gonna play? Oh that's right, "The Brow" as I call him. I am still laughing from the joke...6 guys...11 brows....hahahahahahahahahahah

How funny would it be if they changed the rules to require the American team to have 1 NARP on the floor at all times. Haha, now THAT would be entertaining and probably make the games very competitive.

NARP = Non-Athelete, Regular Person

This team seems a bit too overconfident. They might get shaken up in the first few minutes, but then dominate eventually.

He's always been good at knocking down that corner 3. It's why(until this season), that I always said that the best year of his career was his rookie year when he would spot up and knock open shots down because of AI's ability to penetrate and draw the defense. Iggy off the dribble is horrendous, but when he spots up he can be really good.

Doesnt matter. Durant is a better shooter and a better player by far. Starting Melo over him makes zero sense.

Unless this is just Coach K knowing that his players. Melo's ego would prevent him from playing well as a backup meanwhile Durant is so humble that it wouldnt matter to him.

EDIT: and Durant sinks another as i type this. He is such a beast. Melo is a scrub next to him
