Glad to see Wade isn't on there. No you don't get paid to play in the Olympics. You should be honored just to be there, douche.

mitchcumstein1: doglover: mitchcumstein1: There was no earthly reason for that to happen, and 9 times out of 10 it doesn't. Yes, it makes for a great story,

And that's why you do it. Shoot for the moon. When you hit it, the whole world will know.

I get what you're saying, but I kinda like going over there and reminding everybody that when America sends its best, it's still not much of a contest.

But that's not true of hockey. "America's" best are mostly foreigners.

Also, soccer can show us that even individuals of high talent are worthless in a disorganized mob. Everyone plays soccer in the world. Most pros are simply amazing. Even the most backwater of countries kicks out people who can take on the Beckams of the world and go toe to toe with them. However, the good teams have good coaches and good teamwork. They blow through the teams aren't tight like Scottish Rabbi.

America being the only country with a sizable pro basketball culture, we've got a team of giants and heroes heading over there. However, if you had basketball as a worldwide thing then we'd see the same equality you get in soccer. As it is, we're beating them at our own game and since all these pros have more to lose from an injury than in not getting the gold medal, it's possible you'd see amateurs blow through them if said amateurs were drilled hard enough.

Not exactly "Dream Team" material, but still a nice roster. I'm still upset about Rose. Goddamnit all. GODDAMNIT ALL.
