Default US BASKETBALL TEAM............

is embarrassing!!!! Most of these guys are overpaid, arrogant, spoiled, and overrated. I have absolutely no respect for people who are so arrogant their unable to harness their GOD given talents. Sure everyone has a bad day, but this is ridiculous. They couldn't beat Afghanistan!!!

The embarrasing thing is that they can't even shoot 25% from the college three point line. I'm still shaking my head that Michael Redd was never asked to play for this team.

I am glad that we are losing, hopefully next olympics we wont even be able to compete. I love the fact that the rest of the world knows how to play the game to win, not look good.

First it was the NHL, slowly the MLB (well not eurpean, but foreign) and now the NBA. I doubt anyone would ever be able to touch us at football though.

Fox. hah! good reply

I am happy to see them lose more than just to point and laugh at them, which is very fun. But atleast there appears to be some legit competition out there which has never existed for the US Basketball team in previous Olympics.

So when is poker gonna be an Olympic event? 2012?

I wouldn't be surprised.

Bridge was a demonstration sport in Sidney, and with the influx of new poker players... well I don't think it's out of line.

Just all those Canadians that aren't from Toronto... like me!

Hate is a strong word. it is a good rivalry though. We in the west think Vancouver is the best and those from Toronto feel the same about their city. But they both have a lot to offer in different ways. And lets not leave out Montreal. Now that is a kick as city as well. Great looking women, and good cheap food and beer. Not to mention they like to party in Montreal as well.

If you're an American, I don't care how much you hate Allen Iverson or anyone else on the team for that matter, you should at least support them. If guys like Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady, Shaquille O'Neal would be playing or even if some guys that were not asked to play that could shoot threes (Michael Redd) than this wouldn't be a competition. Remember though, all these teams play with each a lot more than the Americans and have practiced playing together as a team a lot longer than we have.

The United States Basketball team will win the Gold medal.

The U.S. will continue to dominate the Olympics as always.

Yes, the other countries are becoming more competitive, just makes it more fun to watch. Its only natural given the influx of europeans in the WNBA. I welcome and enjoy it and think thats good for the game and good for the world and brings the world a little closer together.

The team i wish to win a gold medal most of all is the Iraq soccer team.
No joke.

P.S. I really think its unfair they have the pros play they should go back to college/high school players for the olympics.
