man, what cool games i saw on these olympic games. it wasnt a good olympic for us in germany but we had our great wins too ( beach volleyball first europien gold medal , also our field hockey team ).
as a big basketball and Hornets Fan i watched the hole dream team road to the gold medal. i wasnt suprised that it was a easy way to the medal. but the biggest news i get on those games was the thing that david stern like to sent in the future only young players, not the stars. for me its a big misstake, i tell ya, these olympic days are the best publicity for the nba in the world. its only all 4 years and for so many people outside the usa a opportunity to watch these great sport and the best players in the world. my Basketball interesst starts also in 92 barcelonas games. i hope that stern dont make that come true.
and it was a great thing to see all the NBA stars on my Flat Screen TV in Full HD. not on a internet stream.
so congrats US Dream Team
you guys were my highlight on these olympic games 2012.
YOU need to calm it down mister !
The hell is with you two? Am I going to have to press Post Quick Reply and close this window before I completely finish typing the next sentence? I'll do it if I have to, so don't make me pr
Chris Paul and Anthony Davis both had as many defensive rebounds as Tyson Chandler (16) in the tournament.

I'm glad they won it all, but I didn't understand a lot of things team USA did.
I think it had to do with coach K saying he believes in speed over size honestly. Spain is the one team that doesn't really work against because they dont give the ball away like the rest of the world.
He faired better against the Gasol's than guys like Melo did.
Love also doesn't alter shots, play weak side (which the US greatly lacked), etc nearly as well as Chandler. The US had enough scoring.

Telep: Think about this timeline. In May 2010, Anthony Davis was not on a single national top 100 list, and if anyone says they had him on one, it's time for a polygraph. My first viewing of him was that month. Never in my life had I seen a guy play for the first time as a junior and thought he was the nation's best prospect. Walking out of the gym that day, I turned to a friend and said, "I think I just saw the best prospect in the nation." He told me not to get too excited. He was wrong. In three months, Davis leaped from obscurity in Chicago to offers from Kentucky, Syracuse and Ohio State. None of the head coaches who offered him saw him until going into July before his senior season.
In an era of highlight tapes and cameraphones, it's silly to think the best play Davis made in high school was never captured on video. Each year at the McDonald's All-American Game, there's a closed-door scrimmage for family, committee members and NBA brass. While I can't re-enact the exact play, my best recollection is that he got an offensive rebound, went behind his back to avoid dribbling out of bounds and dunked in traffic with his left hand. It was a jaw-dropper. I had never seen a kid Davis' size finish a play like that. It might be the best play no one will ever see. Hopefully, one day a Zapruder-type film will pop up.
Stovall: Prior to his senior year, Davis was playing in the Boo Williams Invitational. At that time, no one outside of Chicago really knew who he was. A member of his Mean Streets travel team came to me and said "I'm not sure, but I think we may have found something special." I rushed over to the court and 30 seconds after I arrived, he got injured. One month later, he played at the Spiece Run N' Slam in Fort Wayne and blew up. The rest is history.
Paul Biancardi: The first time I watched him play was in June of the summer before his senior year at Pangos All-American Camp in Long Beach, Calif. He was so thin, yet skilled, that he immediately stood out among the group. At times he was just trying to survive through the physicality of the games, but clearly after that weekend, we all knew he would ascend to the top of the class.
I mean, when you can bring LeBron out as point-power forward and have his surrounding front line teammates be K-Love and Durant ... where's the answer? Your shotblocker is defending a dynamite 3-baller or he's stuck checking LeBron like Gasol was today.
We have no shotblocking with TC on the bench, but neither do you and there rolls Bron to the bucket.
