        Last week I was discussing this US team with a friend who is a major B-ball fan, and he told me that the rest of the world is better at basketball than the US. They understand something about the TEAM part.

        Well I guess it's official.

        Can't blame this on us sending a bunch of college kids...I hope David Stern was watching.

            Why is anyone even remotely surprised? These are people used to being coddled, ogled, and catered to and lavished with money. Now, they are playing basketball for free, and the person on the team that has the most experience is a thub named Allen Iverson.

            Basketball sucks anyway.

              I find it kind of ironic because Puerto Rico is a US protectoret its like getting beat by our 51 state

                I agree. That kind of mitigates the defeat.

                Personally, I haven't paid attention to basketball in years. Too much money is paid to people with too little love for the game.

                I've been paying alot of attention to the Boxing Competetions. There, Cuba and Eastern European boxers reign. (What do expect from boxing programs that include attack dogs, among other things.)

                You know, that is not the first time I heard that in recent days. It surprised me to see people referring to the USA Women's Basketball team as the Athen's Dream Team. It seemed that a number of people in the sports saw problems with the American basketball team.

                  There has to be a lot of anticipation in the Olympic Village as the rest of the world realizes that the US team can be beat. That for the first time in a long while that they may be able to win the gold in men's basketball.

                    That's a good thing. It gets boring when one country dominates a sport. I know I am completely burned out on the "Medal Count".

                    That was great when it was East vs. West -- now it just seems....boring.

                      Exactly, that's why I stopped following men's Olympic basketball. It may be worth following this year just to see if the US can pull themselves together, or if the rest of the world will beat them out for the gold. It my be possible that this team may not medal at all, they are that weak.

                        HEHE I'm just getting it in before the athletics events see you on top of the ladder
