No problem. Yeah, I generally want to see good things from the Americans. I really like these guys, I love the NBA, and wanted them to do well, etc... Until they got matched up with Greece.
The ONLY reason I would root against American BBall is so that their future teams get better.. It's been said a million times already, but whoever puts these teams together needs to put some shooters on this team, as none of them can shoot. They need to remember that for the next olympics, regardless of the medal outcome of this one.
Anyways, good game today, I really liked Greece's effort, even with their best player and point guard out of the game. On the American side, I honestly thought the USA was screwed when Tim Duncan fouled out, but they dug deep and got it done. That is a step in the right direction for them.
