    maybe should be another thread....but will agree with Doc Rivers that the talent/skill of the international players/teams has made tremendous strides...one could even give that credit to the '92 dream team for exploding the NBA all over the world.....i like this years version...but after watching it...someone from USA basketball should send Ricky Rubio an "honorable mention" because if Spain had the slightest bit of guard play/ball.-/control/post feeding....it could have been really bad for us....maybe silver...just saying...

    Yeah a lot the the nba superstars are from other countries. Back in the early 90Ks there were a few but the were mostly just good shooters. People wanna talk down on the US team for not blowing the other teams out like the dream team did but in reality the other teams are much much better and that's not realistic

    agreed, they are much better now than back then....and although i expected a close game with spain never did i think it would be two possessions with seconds to go....big credit to the team from spain and to the USA...at then end of the day it is all about the W...US1

    bringing up an old post. I understand the fit and style argument and slow in LA. The Lakers under the new regime (Lil Buss) are the Dallas Cowboys of the NBA. We go after all the things that sell hotdogs and beer and then look confused when it can't win. The Howard deal was a bust. He should have went somewhere where he was only needed 1/2 as much. Like I said, he is a big man who has to bang to be successful. He is a big man coming off back surgery. He can't do anything 10ft. from the basket. D'Antonio's up and down the floor only exposed what was coming. He is a 'wait for me I will be there in a minute banger' who got spoiled in Orlando. The trade was a bust, the Lakers suck and are about to lose him anyway. Free agency or injury is all the same. If a rotating shift worker in a chemical factory could see this train wreck before it happened to be sure someone in the Laker organization could have as well. US1

    I don't think the Howard trade was a bust. He fits. In well bc he isn't the offensive player Kobe and Nash are. He is an phenomenial rebounder and defensive player. He gives you 16 and 12 which ill take anyday from my starting center. Scary thing is he isn't anywhere close to healthy and still putting up those numbers. The Lakers have one of the top offensives in the nba if you look at the scoring numbers. They also have one of thw worst defensives which is why they lose. That's not Howard, its the perimeter players not to mention they have a coach who doesn't care about defense at all. Everyone puts the blame on Dwight but he isn't doing what he is suppose to. He has never been a huge scorer so not sure why people expected him to be one all of a sudden...
