For anyone wanting to scout the opponent, there they are. They're much more threatening than the DR, this should be a competitive basketball game, though the US should pull away in the second half. USA has much more depth.

Brazil is starting the game well. This a team that finished 9th in the FIBA championships just two years back. The international game is continuously getting better. This PG on Brazil looks like he could play in the NBA.

I think Andre Iguodala is one of the most underrated players in the NBA and I believe he is an excellent addition to the US National Team. If MKG can turn into an Iguodala-type player than I think we will have done very well in this years draft.

Team USA needs to get out and run against these bigger teams to be successful.
