The Americans blow out Nigeria 156-73. Yup you read that right, 156-73. An 83 point blowout. Team USA connected on 29 of 45 3 pointers, an Olympic record. Their 156 points is the highest point total in Olympic history. Dream Team 1 never put up that many points in any contest. The team dished 40 assists, another Olympic record. The leading scorer was Carmelo Anthony who had 37 points mostly from 10 3 pointers. Both are Olympic records, the highest scoring total and most 3's made in a contest. This 2012 Team deserves respect for their efforts. What a legendary blowout.

I just peeped the score...got damn, 83 pts?! I expected us to handle them easily, but I didn't expect a beat down like that. I guess that's to be expected when you have Ike Diogu and Al Farouq Aminu as your best players (2 NBA scrubs). Great win!

Is this the first time we are losing in the 2nd half? I think so.

Well that was short lived by Lithuania.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
