    NBA players don't know how to play real basketball anymore. They're just individual entertainers, putting on a show.
    Other countries actually play team basketball, offense and defense, and can outscore us.

    Exactly, Team USA looked flat out embarassing a few years back. It looked like a pick up game at the local rec center. And oh yes we have Kobe this year, expect 30+ shots from him & then he'll tell ESPN theres no talent around him.

    In my opinion, that team is good enough to win the gold easily. I've always felt that if our best players play, we will win in blowouts. In the past few seasons, the teams have not been the best of the best. The world is much better, but I don't think they have caught our best players, nor do I feel their team play can outshine the talent we have. While not all of these players are the best of the best, our starting five is much improved. Lebron ought to be able to walk into the lane and get any shot he wants.
