Latest beatdowns were Puerto Rico and Uruguay the past two nights, we play Argentina tonight. Interesting thing here is that Argentina has done what we were doing, showed up without some of their best players. I understand Ginobli and a couple other of their main guys aren't playing. Just like Puerto Rico, they annoyed the **** out of me in the 2004 Olympics when they beat us, I want to see a handy thrashing of this team.
It's nice to see Lebron James play with so many other great players, it actually enhances his game rather than limits it. He's a terrific passer, so having guys like Kobe and Carmello cutting to the hoop and having Dwight Howard inside is just fun to watch. Redd and Miller add the outside shooting we had been lacking in the international game. I don't typically like Coach K but I think he's doing a great job so far.

I think Manu Ginobli is a great player but I don't think he is going to make a huge difference against this USA team.

Of course when they beat us in 2004 we didn't have Kidd and Kobe on the team, among other guys that debatably should have been there.

I would have to have been in the meeting when Larry Brown decided "hey we'll go with an Iverson-Marbury backcourt". Yea, that was a disaster waiting to happen.

And it worked out so well the Knicks hired Brown to coach Marbury again. Maybe they figured after Philadelphia with AI and Athens with both, the third time would be a charm.
