While on the topic, has anyone seen the USA Basketball/Nike "conspiracy theory" that's being talked about with regards to the team picture? Dwight Howard, the only non-Nike sponsored player on the team, is the only player whose shoes aren't visible. It's actually pretty funny, regardless of whether it's true.
Well said Adequate.

But I havent noticed the part about D12's shoes. What team picture are you talking about? This one?
