    i think that the refs totally ruined this game, both their phantom foul calls and their no-calls for the US always ruined their momentum and their chance to get back in it, i think its disgusting that in the olympics theyre using secondary european refs, just my opinion, l8r

    Rady, forgive me for this one, but the Olympic Basketball Commitee is a bunch of *******s!

    Do you know the Ref for this Arg-USA match was from Spain!
    How stupid is that! Obviously the ref is going to ensure that USA loses after they beat his home country the day before when the sting is still fresh in his mind.

    Very disapointing...
    I thought they would win this one, I guess it wasn't meant to be. Team USA is gonna get dogged by the press as well as many other people. People have to face the fact that the rest of the world has picked up their game. Ultimately, it lies in the hands of the coach and the players. They couldn't defend against 3 pointers and perimeter shots that other teams were commonly using against them.

    I've just read some articles about that game. Europeans are ****ing laughing. Damn, it's total disaster. How come we could lose?! At least Stephon did his best. I'm proud of him.

    I haven't seen the game. Did any1 catch it? I really need some highlights.

    Man, I can't believe those sorry europeans play jokes on our team. In press... Their teams are not worth Iverson's shoe, not even speaking of our players. And all of a sudden they start their **** in the press. That's wrong.

    I hate to say this but I don't really blame them for rubbing it in our face a little bit...what I hope is that this reignites an interest in going and playing in the Olympics...but today, Argentina was just plain better. They are the Princeton of the international game...and are really fun to watch. I hope that some of this "flavor" rubs off on the NBA.
    It also gives me hope as a Knick fan...you saw how all of those teams handled Duncan without having reallt talented "bigs" themselves...with our deapth in the frontcourt and perimeter studs...it could be a good year!
