I dnt like how Rookies are getting a spot on the team US , esp during the Olympic. Like Okafor's rookie year and now AD. Even though Cousins is a knuckle head, I think he deserve a spot more than Anthony Davis. Davis has yet prove anything in the NBA, and yet he received a spot.

That's fugging stupid. Especially, how Melo and Jr smith are complaining about LINSANITY's contract. Calling it ridiculous and Smith saying other players deserve a contract more than Lin. Lin actually proved he can win in the NBA. AD hasn't proved junk and hes infront of Cousins.

Man I love these international rules. I wish basketball was a more physical game.

They can't put Cousins out there, he is a hot head; the last thing they need is Cousins out there trying to body check people.

The U.S. just got unlucky with all the injuries.

Keep in mind, we are missing guys (to injury) like Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Blake Griffin, Dwayne Wade, and Derrick Rose.

Then there are other guys who could have made it in Chris Bosh, Eric Gordon and Rudy Gay.

This PG on Brazil reminds me of Ginobili. He has great court awareness and vision. Still, Brazil is 2 or 3 players away from being able to beat the US. As good as several of their players were, it is obvious a few of the players are clearly outclassed. The backup guards have especially struggled with the US.

It is a six point game as I type. Great showing from Brazil. This is great for the NBA and basketball in general. The more the game grows the better the talent in the NBA will be. Picking from a pool of 7 billion players will yield better players than a selection from 400 million players.

Would've liked to have guys like Aldrige , Duncan, Rose, and Gordon on the team.

I think Brazil could give Spain a run for the money if Brazil's point guards play at a high level because size wise they match up great with Spain.

Good showing by Brazil, better win by USA.

Not really. Argentina, France or Russia could give Spain a run but not Brazil. Brazil has a good Point, and a few nice big man but does not stack well with Calderon, Ibaka, Pau and Marc Gasol.
Spain will def give USA a headache.

If Brazil gave the U.S. this much trouble they are capable of giving Spain a run for their money. Brazil is easily the fourth best team in the Olympics and they were the only one's who gave the U.S. a good game in the 2008 Olympics. Also don't be mistaken, U.S. is still the team to beat.

France is too old and Russian's are weak.
