"Does the U.S. game still suck" <br><br>I watched the US team play in the FIBA turney last fall. If they use the same players, they will be very good. Long gone is the showboating that we saw a few years ago when LaBron James first played. The team now playes very well as a team. In fact they revel in passing and letting their teammates score. This willa be a great time to watch the US team play again. <br><br>I do believe there are some other teams that will do very well also. Can't remember who they were talking about last fall but it will be fun.<br><br>The 12 team members<br><br>Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd, Carlos Boozer, Chris Paul, Chris Bosh, Tayshaun Prince, Kobe Bryant, Michael Redd, Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Deron Williams<br><br>dave<br><br><br>

That might not work so well. It might be an exercise in futility.<br><br>Good basketball's a communication game, and built on a team's familiarity with each other, on how well they execute the technical aspects of the game. That stuff doesn't happen overnight.<br><br>Knowing the expected pacing and arc on passes for certain plays, for example (so that, for example, a soft 'touch' of a lob will drop in at just the right 'lead'/location for a player to hit it at fullspeed without breaking stride/step, flawlessly, to go up and in, or break downcourt, whatever. Or the subtle communication and acknowledgement on a 'no look' pass, which is not really a 'no look' pass, since the real target is pre-acquired and you and he knows where he's going to be, and your look and the flow is somewhere else for misdirection, then you fire off the pass (again, with the right trajectory and pacing on the ball).<br><br>At the big show, the difference in winning and losing can be measured in fractions of things, and that stuff doesn't come about until a team's been together for a while.<br><br>I wish that sucker good luck, but (nah ) not really.<br><br>I just hope a good team wins, and they will, of course.<br><br>Ed<br><br>[color:purple]Information isn't a connection - It doesn't stir people</font color=purple><br>

To that end, if they dump Bryant they could win.<br><br>He's a well proven loser, except at the box office .<br><br>That guy's brain and heart are damaged goods, probably forever. All he has is talent. I don't get why anyone with half a brain that wants to win bothers with this loser anymore.<br><br>Ed<br><br>[color:purple]Information isn't a connection - It doesn't stir people</font color=purple><br>
I can't stand Kobe.<br><br>But I will say this: he's a genius on the court.<br><br>I enjoyed your having shared what you did about your daughters. I've heard many speak of how "sports teaches kids life lessons" to the point where it has become such a tired cliche that I had virtually no meaning to me. But you brought it to me. Thanks for that!<br><br>Always move. Always move with purpose. Again-- thanks for that.<br><br>You strike me as a good dad-- and that is among the best compliments that one can give.<br><br>
