They don't have a single player who can make jump shots and that's absolutely killing them. They chose a team full of athletes, but none can drop the open shot.

They're looking absolutely horrible right now...it isn't pretty at all to watch

Did anyone see Carlos Arroyo drop Amare Stoudemire to the ground with his fake pass then drop the layup?

Wow that was funny...

Fly Ashley Judd in and get her to flash the PR team or something...gotta do something to get their attention off the game and stop the momentum.

Did see that. He dropped him hard. And the worst part was Amare just kinda laughed at it. If that was me I'd throw down on someone's head.

We should be able to take the 10-12th men of each team and still win. Maybe 1 of those players on Puerto Rico would make an NBA squad. Yes we do need an outside shooter, but everyone on that team is capable of hitting a 3 pointer thats a few inches back of the college line. They just need to work together a bit more and they will be fine. I'm pretty sure they will still win the gold. Do you guys think its better if they lose or win? I feel that if they lose in 2008 we could have an actual dream team, Kobe (if he is free ;-)), Duncan, Garnett, Macgrady, Francis, Ray Allen, Vince Carter, Carmelo and Lebron once they are developed.
Sorry my program for making sigs is broken

They have a couple of NBA players, Arroyo and some tall dude, Ramos I think his name was. They also have this old guy who is like the best PR basketball player ever who used to play with the Jazz and was Pac-10 Player of the Year back in the day.

It's still pretty sad however, I kinda want them to win and lose at the same time.

And this is the team USA killed in it's exhibition...

I just have one question (other than why they suck): Since when is Carlos Arrojo so great? He's nothing special in the NBA - he's decent, but not great (he's the Jazz PG).

Of all people who should be able to coach a team into playing together as a team it's Larry Brown - who coached the Pistons past the Lakers. Maybe if they took Michael Redd instead of Emeka Okafor, they'd be in better shape. Geez, all PR is doing is loading up the middle making Duncan worthless since he can't get open under the net and making Iverson worthless since he can't drive to the net with 4 players standing around it. There's their 2 best players, rendered worthless. All they had to do was take a shooter to Athens. It's still pathetic that they can't beat PR though. I'm happy, since like the announcers said, all neutral fans root for the underdog. That's just the way people work. Couldn't be happier to see the USA put in it's place by a team full of nobodies ;-) Oh yeah, they do have another NBAer; Daniel Santiago. Who couldn't carry Calbert Cheaney's shoes in the NBA but is tearing the Dream Team apart at the Olympics :-b
