These guys are really coming together, putting the US back way on top where they belong.  It's fun to see.

Apparently, Chris Kaman's dad was pretty disappointed that he played for Germany, and was openly routing for the United States.

So it's USA v Australia in the quarters right? What a shame we have to face the dream team now instead of in a medal round. That said, if we can beat lithuania by 31 I can still hold some hope!  ;D

Routing?  Freudian slip there, bud?  Haha.

Once Kobe joined I knew this team would be a monster, nice to show the world whose sport basketball still is. People were a little too excited after the USA lost the last olympics saying the difference between USA and other countries wasn't that big anymore. Send the right team, with a better coach, and the rest of the world simply can't compete.
