  • OT - Anyone excited for Team USA Basketball???

    I'm actually looking forward to us playing. We actually play an exhibition tonight on ESPN2. Unfortunately, news just broke that Amare Stoudemire is being dropped from the team....

    I'm not excited about it BUT I do like how they assembled the team. They kept a lot of the cry baby stars of the team and got a lot of workman types. I think this team will have a good chance at winning the Gold despite the lack of stars on it or more like because the lack of stars on it.

        Name one player that cares that they are playing for the US and isn't there just to add another trophy to their case.

            That's right. He comes from a long line of Lute Olson UofA badasses! Lute knows how to screw a kids head on real tight.

                I'd also say Battier, Brand, Bowen, Miller, Jamison...

                  Just be glad that Football doesn't have international competition. I wonder how many NFL'ers would give of their time to partake in a non-paid competition? They have enought trouble signing autographs after a practice, much less giving months of their time to be patriotic.

                      By the way, Hinrich is my favorite NBA player, I'm excited they didn't go with the NBA one-on-one player's and went with all-around team players, ala Bruce Bowen, and Battier. Obviously the USA has the best talent around but it doesn't matter with the way the international game is played. USA USA USA!!

                        Two of the biggest headcases in the NBA come from Zona: Salim and Damon Stoudamire.

                          Not excited, but glad that they put the team correctly for once.

                          Stoudemire must not be 100% yet......

                            I was saying that's why i'm looking forward to the USA Basketball tourney, it's like my dream team, with Hinrich, Lebron, Wade..should be some fireworks from the best draft class in years..and oh ya, BOsh..

                              Salim is nowhere near "headcase" status - but I'll concede on Damon.

                              Anyways, UofA / Lute can still claim: Sean Elliot, Loren Woods, Luke Walton, Mike Bibby, Richard Jefferson, Andre Iguodala, Hassan Adams, Jason Terry, yada yada
