    the nba playes did not play there hardest because they were not getting paid and they dident want to get hurt. but i say if you say you want to go then go and play your hardest not 80%

    does that not make sense to anyone else, ....... the nba player did play hard becasue they werent getiing played and didnt want to get hurt????is it just me

    btw earlier in the forum when i said nba players only play if getting paid (and most ppl seemed to agree) i was referring to the players who stayed back home and didnt come. The only person i see with a legit excuse is kobe and jason kidd. I mean i gotta give it to ppl like boozer (who was going for his degree and put it on hold for the olympics) , iverson, and marbury who sacraficed a large portion of there summer to go to the olympics. I dont think the reason we lost was because of the 80% effort that jjtheknicks said, i think we gave 100% effort its just the team that was chosen was not a good perimiter defending team or a good perimiter shooting team, and thats what u need in international ball. I dont like to hear that they didnt play with all there effort, those guys every single one fo them odom marbury iverson jefferson boozer every single one of them left it all on the court and it go them a bronze medal.
