    Big reason IMO the USA lost in Athens and in the World Championships was because they stacked the team with too much slashers, and not enough pure jumpshooters and threepoint shooters. Same goes with this roster for China. I actually can't believe they didn't see that that was one of the biggest weaknesses of that team. The only difference this time is their mental state. They're definitely not gonna let this Olympics be as humbling as last time. Melo shouldn't be a ballhog. I remember in last Olympics, I think in the quarterfinals or semis, they could have won that, but Melo kept resorting to threes when there was still enough time left. Their demise in its entirety was also due to several starplayers deciding not to play, which disappointed me at that time. The big plus here is that Kobe's taking part. This should be the perfect time for USA to show to the world that when they take things seriously, they are still the most dominant team in the world. There should be no single-digit wins.

    No you see thats why I think this team is stacked, they have more team players and less ball hogs and hot shots

    Hopefully they just use good ball movement and dunk on every possession. I don't see why they can't against clearly inferior competition.

    they have non-ball hog pgs which is the key, and they have 2 or 3 superstars who will get the ball all the time, which isn't too many like last year. They basically have their starting 5 which is important, and they are determined to win, which is the biggest key. Kobe and LeBron will dominate

    The country is called Russia. Lithuania actually was a part of the Soviet Union.

    I'm not dumb, Russia is my favorite country besides America, and my best friend is Lithuanian, so I know every player on their team, trust me I hear every day, Sarunas Jasikaviskas would own, or Arvydas Macijauscas would own
