    what is starting to worry my pessimistic mind is d wade being out there on the court.
    Hmm? Seriously you should watch the replay. D. Wade looked good out there. Including one play where you'd have thought he was never injured.

    ive seen the highlights already as well as from canada, d wade is well attacking(which is good) but he doesnt pass the ball) its still too much ill attack the basket although people are collapsing on me type of mentality...i dont know if this is what the coaches want him to do but it worries me though.

    LOL!!!!!!

    And we are bitching about the Euroleague site!

    Nice team by Turkey!

    It is clear that Papaloukas will not help Olympiakos in the winter if he keeps playing like this...

    However, I'm always surprised how teams just give up playing defence when falling behind to the US.
    Okay I watch a little bit of the end of the game from what I saw it look as if Turky completly gave up in the 4th. US saw that and preaty MUCH did like they did against canada and had a practice session against them, and just try to make a highlight plays like always. As for your Ricky Rubio showing up Kobe that funny. No offence Rubio a great player but kobe playing on a diffrent level then anyone in the world. His offence skillz is just madness (NO ONE COMES CLOSE TO IT) and he not that bad of a defensive player either.

    "I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    To distract you from all the times they commit hinky fouls like Chris Paul tripping people and LeBron James flagrantly attempting to knock someone's head off their shoulders. What? I just cut your eye? My bad.

    I know no one noticed this but me, but when Atsur came up to Chris Paul, he came all the way up to him and then backed away with his feet. He knew Paul would try to trip him and maybe it could work in his favor. The U.S.A. will play as ugly as they possibly can.

    Well, they did get it right at the USA Basketball site. Don't feel bad, the ESPN play-by-play was even getting the U.S. team's credentials wrong. Rick Kamla at least was able to pronounce every Turkish player's name correctly during the U.S. broadcast, and their professional team names correctly, and as far as I could tell he got all of that right, except I don't know anything about Tunceri so I couldn't verify that part.
