maybe not, but if you think any of those games will be even remotely close you're crazy.

This team is unreal.

They'll beat Lithuania by 20-30

They'll beat Argentina by 15-20

They'll beat Spain by 15-20


Just a guess of course. They'll barely be challenged by any of them.

It unfortunately seems like no one is going to challenge them this year. Spain is playing like shit and other teams just dont have the players. I think Spain might not even be in finals the way they are playing. And to challenge US, they would need more from the wings. Calderon can play the role he knows and get the ball down low to Gasols, but if there is no threat from wings, Gasols cant do it all by themselves.

The only way any one is challenging US in these games is if some good team has similar shooting night against them as they had last night against Nigeria. And still US would need to play badly to lose.

All in all dissapointing tournament so far from my favorites (Lithuania and Spain).

He's actually okay in international ball. Scored 30 against Spain.

Melo 37 points, 10-12 on threes. Set the USA single player scoring record. Only 14 minutes. Wow!!!

If USA spots Spain or Argentina 10-15 points like they did in the pre-olympic warm-ups, I could see either team holding tight and pulling out a win. I wouldn't bet money on it though.

Shame on you guys for getting caught up in the hype. The U.S. team has BARELY been tested at all in their 1st 3 games. Tunisia and Nigeria?? C'mon....

NOW we're seeing what they're made of. Lithuania and Argentina aren't just going to roll over and die when the Americans make a couple of shots.

I think that they're definitely the best team, but they ain't gonna blow EVERYONE away. It's not 1992 anymore.

Great game from Lithuania. Give them a lot of credit as they played hard. USA terrible at the FT line, gave up too many easy shots, and the 3 was not falling.

Probably good for USA though. Wake up call.

Lithuania just gave that game away with all the TOs. Too bad.... they shot almost 60% and lost. That's gotta hurt.

Kleiza played like a boss. Maybe our starting SF spot doesn't need to be upgraded after all?
