Olympic Basketball Game Looks More Like Streetball Game

Taylor SmithCorrespondent IAugust 11, 2008

The USA won a stunning basketball game against China 101-70 on Sunday, but I couldn't help but notice that the US needs help on one thing - show boating. All I saw were high flying dunks, but no passing or shooting.

The US got off to a great start, but China started knocking down three pointers and all of a sudden no one on the US knew what to do. The team thrives on taking the ball and running the game their way but as soon as someone wants to change it, they get lost.

 Here's what I think. Either follow the flow of a game, because it won't always go your way, or be prepared for there to be a second redeem team in 2012.
