USA Basketball: Just Give Them the Gold

g fdsCorrespondent IAugust 1, 2008

The USA's two exhibition games have looked like a one-sided All-Star game. If you saw any of the game against Turkey, I can guarantee you that you saw at least two alley-oops. 

USA has made Canada and Turkey look like small town YMCA teams. I don't think they will have any trouble winning gold if they continue to play defence and attack the paint.

Last year, the only times USA got in any trouble was when their defence slacked or they got into a three-point competition with much better-shooting teams. I don't think that Coach K will let that happen this year—he is way too good of a coach.

Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and Dwyane Wade are names that most foreigners are probably in awe of. When USA Basketball is warming up before a game, the other team is probably more worried about getting autographs than preparing for that game.

No way can any foreign team have any chance of beating the USA—not with the talent and knowledge the team now has.

If you think there is a team that can beat the USA, I want you to tell me!
