Been hearing this since 2008 and Spain keeps coming up short while the US keeps winning gold.

They had their best shot in 08, But Kobe went Kobe mode.

You do realize that the current Lakers dynamic is a tad bit different from the setup of Team USA, right?

Some of yall must have had a turkey on wheat w/ a side of paint chips for lunch today.

Really doesn't matter how thin the Lakers talent is. That's not an excuse for playing stupid.

The point is Kobe's ego>his talent these days

Being surrounded by better players is not going to change that

Has Ibaka even played well since joining them? I never feel like he's made an impact

post #25956 of 93193
USA bigs are Blake, DMC, Drummond, AD, PG & Bron as Small 4s laugh.gif there's no competition imo.

Also Melo and KD at the 4

 

If Kobe plays, most likely Drummond doesn't make the cut but yeah, US bigs are superior considering who will be filling out the rest of the roster

 

If chips fall a certain way, I'd like to see Dray, Leonard and Butler make it

it's called managing mins and rotations.. no singular player plays the whole game

so that's 6 spots taken then.. with only 5 remaining, if some get their wish of kobe being gifted a spot as a retirement gift

 

and you forgot KD

So the point you're trying to make is, if Kobe plays, Spain has a chance because of their bigs? Is that what you're going with

Drummond or Blake could easily be dropped
post #25962 of 93193

Derrick Rose has held opposing teams' starting point guards below their average points. 

 

  • Mudiay Wednesday: 2-13 for 4 points

    Tony Parker: 6-12 for 13 points

  • George Hill: 3-8 for 6 points (Monta Ellis did have 20 as sort of a point guard in the Bulls win on 9-20 the other game when Hill was hurt)
  • Damian Lillard: 4-22 for 19 points
  • Kemba Walker: 6-12 for 13 points and 5-18 for 13 points.
  • Westbrook: 7-18 for 20 points
  • Shane Larkin, Brooklyn: 3-8 for 6 points.
  • Elfrid Payton: 2-7 for 4 points
  • Mo Williams: 7-15 for 19 points
  • Ricky Rubio: 2-10 for 7 points
  • Someone named McConnell from the 76ers: 3-8 for 6 points
  • Reggie Jackson: 9-24 for 22 points.

by pointing out how limited 12 roster spots are?

 

that's a statement of fact.. wasting 1 of your 12 spots is incredibly stupid.. when you factor in potential matchups and the strong possibility of injuries

Mirotic and Ibaka are both naturalized Spanish citizens Fiba only allows one per tourney they have to pick one of them

When's the last time USA was hurt by injuries :lol

 

I would bet you the NT standard $150 that the US will beat Spain by at least double digits with or without Kobe. Their bigs are great don't get me wrong, but they don't have a good chance of beating the US

US only beat spain by 7 for the gold medal in 2012.. and that took some huge shots down the stretch

 

you can look up that roster and see if a C team is acceptable

I'm not.. I'm not even American.. would be funny to me if the US lost.. ESPECIALLY if kobe was on the team

 

but I see absolutely no justifiable reason it would make sense to waste 1 of 12 roster spots
