    dunno about team usa, but I’m afraid of the Spanish team. Team USA ain’t got no true center. Spain has the Gasol hermanos y Fran Vasquez. Got a bad feeling about Team USA’s chances.

    No true center? They have Howard!

  • JC

    KOBE’s gonna bring home the GOLD Baby! – USA USA!!

    Yeah but if Howard gets into foul trouble then we might be kaput.

  • lakerferlife7

  • Thomas

    C’mom guys. I want the USA to bring home the gold medal, but I truly consider Spain a serious threat as opposed to Argentina. Manu is injured severely. The Spanish team will feature several players with NBA experience:

    Pau Gasol
    Jorge Garabajosa
    Juan Carlos Navarro
    Jose Calderon

    Then you have top Spanish players who play in Europe”
    Marc Gasol
    Fran Vasquez
    Rudy Fernandes- touted as the next Manu Ginobili

    Respect the enemy.
