World's Basketball Championship semi-final match. What do you think about it?
USA will win. Simple as that.
Hmm, I think not that simple Lithuania has 7 victories in a row.
It's basketball of course usa will win.
Even though these aren't even close to all of USA's best players USA will beat Lithuania
If I remember correctly Lithuania has already won the USA in Olympics.
Im suprised at the number of top teams that are gone...Spain & Argentina specifically. This game will be the Durant show (again)
Yeah. That match was amazing.
It's been 6 years, USA will win any day even without all their best players.
The real advantage the USA Team has (if any) is the fact of NOT having too many so-called stars... because they are such ego freaks that
there is no such thing as "the team" will win. It's all about "I have to score", "I want to be on the cover of that magazine",
"I wanna Fu$&@ Kim Kardarshian too!"
And the list goes on.... let it win who deserves it the most.
I would disagree. The superstars know how to act. These guys are all high quality B team players minus Durants and Billups. Even coach K says the biggest problem he has is dealing with these young players egos. If you really watch their games, its an ego battle. Every time one of these players gets owned they have to get the ball the next 5 plays on offense to show they really arent that bad (ie Rudy Gay second half of last game).
Billups is not high quality, that is Steph Curry who is injured and Westbrook...as well as Kevin Durant
Billups is easily the best point guard in the game other than maybe Chris Paul. Dont confuse shooting guard with point guard. Dominating at point guard is about tempo and passing. Shooting guard is all about scoring.
Tony Parker, Rajan Rondo and Steve Nash say hi!
Ill give you Rondo. Give him another year and he can be in the conversation. Ill take Billups and Paul over Parker and Nash anyday. When the last time the Suns made it the finals? Hmmm....
I'm from Lithuania, very sad that we lost, but our team is still the best : )
Yes i agree..seeing how i am a detroit fan..I know all about it..As soon as we lost billups or team just went down hill
Rajan Rondo??? He is the most OVER RATED player in the whole nba..The only reason he is okay is because he is surrounded by a quality team
Take out rondo and then there's a list
Exactly. and the Nuggets suddenly became the number 2 team in the west despite already having Carmello
Thats why I said Ill give him another year. He hasnt shown me enough consistency yet. I said hed be in the conversation not be dominating it. Hes numbers are progressing, but I still think Paul and Billups are better players talent wise. Few players can make a roster all around better. Billups can because he understands the game, its like having a coach on the court.
USA may win, but we Lithuanians are still better basketball players.
