Lol, I want to watch the US team. I couldn't care less about team Canada.

Ball Don't Lie 07-24-2008 09:22 PM

Yep, gotta see how the US come out in their first game.

Only good news regarding this game is that LeBron is likely sitting it out with an ankle injury. It will certainly be a slaughter. I'm sure the game will be televised on RapsTV Thug, but it might be taped and shown at a different time. Check the schedule at RaptorsTV. :)

Acie 07-25-2008 09:48 AM

I thought it was on the Score at 10:00pm?

Thug 07-25-2008 12:28 PM

Thanks for the information on broadcasting Doc and Acie.

Acie 07-25-2008 10:36 PM

As always Jesse Young impresses me with his hustle and smarts. He reminds me a bit of Garbo.

Kirby 07-25-2008 11:17 PM

As always Kobe Bryant impresses me with his..Basketball. Go figure.

Acie 07-25-2008 11:30 PM

Yeah, he looked real impressive schooling Carl English.

Maybe when Nash and Dalembert start to actually play. :dead:

Ball Don't Lie 07-26-2008 12:04 AM

Jesse Young is the ugliest player since...cassell I guess.

Anderson played a strong game, and in the 1st half him and Anthony were the only ones that played with any balls. Kendall was ok too, he didnt make any mistakes but he played smart.

Paul+Williams backcourt was absolutely incredible. That was the hightlight of the game for me watching them work together. Pauls split/reverse behind the back fake pass/ floater sequence was sick wicked and nasty.

Carmelo and Wade are still ballhogging clowns.

And LOL at Carl English, after like 7 years, still thinking hes Lebron out there and going 1 on 1 every possession. LOL at Leo calling Dalembert out for trying to do too much when this clown carries the ball every possession and tries to Mike James' Kobe every time down.

canada loses 120-65
they suck

Major 07-26-2008 08:58 AM

Kobe's the man. I don't care if Canada got pwned.

We should have all seen it coming anyway.

Gurk 07-26-2008 09:00 AM

KObe is really good and everybody knows it but still 120-65 that is some serious pwnage

Ugo Ferst 07-26-2008 09:21 AM

Just the beginning, USA planning to do some serious damage and a get a bit of retribution this summer ;)

Gurk 07-26-2008 10:15 AM

I want Spain to win
I dont like the mix of the USA team

Superjudge 07-26-2008 02:00 PM

You guys, come on.

Mocking Canada, saying they suck, making fun of English because he can't guard Bryant.

Are you that shallow?

How many of you could evenplay in a YMCA pick up game with the Canadian National team??

All this talk of Spain, do you think for a minute they have a prayer against the USA.

An idiot could have told you that teams from the US in the past were picked for money making purposes to push shoe and Merch sales. And they failed as a result.

Any of you old enough to hav ebeen able to enjoy the dream team can tell you what happened when they sent thier best guys, thier vets. This team is going to Anihilate EVERY team it faces. You can take that to the bank.

Our nats aren't good enough. We can't qualify let alone beat the best team in the world, yet, ignorantly you guys sit back all smug and rip your own team.

I think it's sad, and it's a testament to the corrosiopn of both general intelligence and common values that is being seen across the board with the younger generations today.

Not only do you lack respect for anybody or anything. you don't eventakle the time to educate yourselvs before you spout off.


Cranky old man!
