As you all know, Spain is looking like a legit threat to team USA.

plus they got Size, does anyone think that lack of size is gonna hurt US?

Gasol? Gasol? Plus some other tall dudes.

Boozer and howard gonna cut it?

Boozer's like our 12th man. And deservedly so. I wish Brand or Chandler came instead of him. Chris Bosh has been doing well. I think he can play good D against Pau and Marc.

Is the lack of size gonna hurt us?
Yes.
But our athleticism and fast-break prowess makes up for it, BIG time.

They honestly need more role players Chandler should be there instead of Carmelo Anthony who is the complete opposite of a team player, he trys to attack with 2 defenders on him and chucks up horrible shots.

Alex Mumbru

Popo you are right, they need more Role Players, They alrdy have all star Players like lebron kobe wade and dwight, only role players they have is Prince, Boozer, Redd, and Boozer dont play that much, they need someone like Chandler, and some one to break the Zone. Redd cant break the Zone himself, they need a solid shooter like Ray Allen.(I know he a Celtics but still) So i dont know, but i know USA will win it but going to be tough.

I'm not worried for the US. I'm more worried for Spain and all those other countries that are going to be competing against us. :lol:

Same way I am not worried for Spain :lol:
Spain and the US are just in another level.


I think it will be a close match, if it isn't I will be disappointed.
As I said before I think will win either gold or silver. But we just have to see how things roll. If Kobe has a bad day, things could change.

Even if Kobe does have a bad day, there's still the other 11 members on the roster. No way they would all be having bad days. :P
