the brand of basketball played in america is so entirely different from the way everyone else plays the game.  most of our guys on our team are the top dog on their team, and getting that many egos to play seemlessly together is a tough job, whereas everywhere else the team factor is the way to play the game.  the rest of the world may not be as good athletically than our guys, but they are better in the fundamentals and the team work aspect of things.  in the end, they will always have a good shot at beating us til the NBA players figure this out.

im not, we took our dominance for granted now we have to work again to gain it back.  the fact everyone said they are proud of the way the team bounced back after a tough loss and were happy with the bronze makes me sick.  we are settling for second or third best, when we could easily be the best.

USA Basketball has to rethink their approach, they need to get guys that want to play, and want to play a team game...maybe they need to get college kids!!!

All I know is the last few teams seem more interested in seeing who can get the best jam, then who gets the win.

The world game has picked up significantly , we are not in the same times we were when the original Dream Team took the floor, we need guys that are willing to go to battle literally, and in todays age where we are giving 18 year olds 100 million dollar contracts I don't think you are going to find too many of those players in the NBA anymore, at least not from most of todays "superstars".... thats just my opinion anyway.
