Default Bosh Getting Praise, D12 In Coach K's Dog House

(So keep an eye out for Bosh's possibly supplanting Dwight Howard as the primary big man, perhaps when the Americans face Spain in the fourth game of the preliminary round of the Olympics. Bosh might be a more effective post defender against Pau Gasol, and he's certainly more mobile -- and a better free-throw shooter -- than Howard.)

Chris Sheridan: coach K singled him out for praise in the post-ga,me yesterday even though he had a blah stat line, but there was some jawing going on between Coach K and Dwight Howard that might have fueled Coach K's praise of Dwight's backup.It's certainly a subplot that I'll be watching closely from here on out.

Chris Sheridan: And another thing, Bosh is actually a better defender against opposing bigs in some instances than Dwight. Remember, a lot of the international bigs will go outside and shoot the 3 if unchallenged. Australia has a bunch of them, so look for that tomorrow, and watch to see if Dwight runs out at them on the perimeter or stays inside.

David, STL: Any idea why Howard and Coach K were going at it?

Chris Sheridan: Something to do with Dwight taking somewhat of a cheap shot at one of the Russians, Coach K getting on him about it, and Dwight talking back. There's a maturity issue with Dwight, and Coach K needs him to be play smart, play well and grow up quick. With only three bigs. the Americans can't afford any issues at that position.
