with Daniel out, its a new ball game, all DR will do is pound it inside. Jack Michael is too much to handle for us, then we have to contain Horford. Sadly it will be in Argentina... :D

Fight Alert... Alamo vs Jack Michael

Alamo ko's the dominican Ben Wallace with a cross right to the chin, and qualifies for the London Olympics in the boxing category.:D

I don't get why people compare Jack Michael with Ben Wallace, isn't was like a realy good defender? have you ever seen Jack Michael playing defense? if you answer yes, then go get your eyes check.


anyway, I said it before and I said again, we don't have a PG anymore, look at what Panama did without point guards. It was very obvious last game that we need one badly. and Flores has been playing great but if you play him as a point guard then you are taking away from his offensive game, and he is our best overall shooter, and that hurts even more when our best 3 pt shooter, garcia, is having a really bad tournament and has only been a factor on defense, and the other decent shooter on the team is not seen action because he is coming from an injury, yeah another f'ing one.

Plus we are playing without our starting 3, Eulis has been at times the glue that has hold the team togetehr both on defense and offense even though you can't see that on the stat sheet. because of that he are force to use a small foward that does not have a shot, not a mid-range shot, not a three point shot, he can only make lay-ups and dunks, what do you need a lay-up machine for in a team that is struggling with the exterior shot:confused:

act to that the fact that Eulis also, played some 4 at times but now we don't even have bigmen to rest Jack Michael or Al Horford. Al played like 38 minutes last game.

Venezuela controls their own destiny. A win vs Uruguay gives them the berth for the Olympic Qualifier.

Canada needs to win and Venezuela to lose.

Uruguay has no chance

Panama has a game left

What a game again. After exactly 1 year of that game in Turkey, sept. 7th, we finally beat the great Argentina.

I think that this win shows a change of ages. From 2012 on, Brazil will become the best national team in south america again.

Argentina is in hot water now.

With this first loss Brazil, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic's confidence of beating Argentina goes up.

We just have to win, you guys just have to lose by less than 10 and we face each other again in the semifinals.

So...Canada blows a 21-point lead, but Uruguay misses five shots on their last possession. And three shots the possession before that.

It'll be really sad if Venezuela doesn't hang on to the fifth position.
