    Have you changed your opinion of the Re-Deem Team?

    not that Olympics b-ball is that big of a deal to any of us...

    but for the haters -- and i use that term loosely - b/c i do NOT love the whole deal down in Miami --

    does this make you look back on the Re-Deem team as fondly?
    Not that anything would ever make them more amazing than what the original Dream Team did and who was on it -- which is UN-TOPPABLE --

    but we all kinda loved the Re-Deem team when it happened and were so excited to see them play together -- yet now many of us are gonna hate watching 3 of them reunite

    would you root for them if they made another run at the next olympics despite how you negatively feel about them now?

    Olympics and NBA are completely different things. While some of us have stronger opinions, bad or good, about Wade, Bron and Bosh going to Miami, we all realize that winning Olympic gold isn't about who's where, it's just who has the most talent and gives the US the best chance to win (or dominate).

    If they did it again in 2012 I'd still be rooting for them. It's not like they stomped on American flags while smoking Cuban cigars. What's the best team matters, and that should be all.

    My opinion hasn't changed. I still appreciate that team for getting us the gold back. I don't like the move that LBJ made personally, but that won't cause me to completely turn against the USA.

    No the redeem team was great. The NBA super team is bad. there is a big difference between those guys together on a Olympic team and a NBA team. I feel that wade and bosh or lebron and bosh was ok because bosh is honestly a number 2 guy he is like gasol he will never win on his own. He needed one of them but im mad at lebron for taking the easy way out for say. He used to be my fav player but now i cant root for him bc he be came a ring chaser at 25 and said i will be wades ***** for a ring.

    This and that. Espicially when Wade called the bulls disloyal.

    I don't think the Heat signings should cast a negative light on anyone's perception of the Redeem Team. Why? How quickly we forget this: http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/14636094/ns/sports-nba/

    Back in 2006 The USA team WITH Wade, LeBron, and Bosh among other NBA greats all on the roster only managed a bronze medal in the FIBA world championship. A frikkin' BRONZE! (For those of you who are wondering, no, Kobe was not there.) The "redeem" in their name has much to do with their own personal redemption as getting the USA back on top.

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I don't mind one bit that LeBron, Wade and Bosh all decided to meet up on the Heat. I do disagree with how LeBron handled his end of the process, but it's his legacy, not mine.

    And I also may be in the in the minority here as well, but I'm not handing the Heat a title just because they look great on paper. That bronze medal at the FIBA teaches us something about strength of competition vs. chemistry.

    If you're American and root against the USA in the Olympics, you deserve to be smacked in the face, repeatedly. No one should disrespect their country like that.

    Again, i dont think people are upset that Lebron went to Miami. Just how he did it.

    I don't see it affecting peoples opinions on what they did for the country. You tend to put aside ur differences for stuff like that...

    Just like Shameus did for John Cena did last night (or was it a ploy to gain his trust )

    damn it Hellcrooner, stop using every thread as a platform for you to spit your international b-ball>american b-ball propaganda

    Back on topic, no way it changes my opinion of the entire team because 3 of its members are on the same team now
