    USA basketball lost to Greece today. I expected Coach K to whip US into shape and bring home the gold. The final score was 101-95. I didn't watch the whole game, only the last few minutes but its pathetic. Greece has no NBA players on there team. ITS F***ING PATHETIC. HOW THE HELL DO WE LOOSE??????? ITS PATHETIC THAT GREECE IS EVEN IN USA'S LEAGUE. WE SHOULD BE RIPPING THE HEADS OFF OF THESE EURO'S. I don't know what to say its just PATHETIC

    It isn't pathetic, Greece played AMAZINGLY.

    They played as a team, and that is all it took. NBA may be the biggest b-ball league in USA, but international leagues are super competitive and have some amazing players.

    The way Greece played, you can't take anything away from them. So what if they don't have NBA players, it doesn't mean they are bad. They played a system that was designed to limit the USA system of run-n-gun. It worked.

    Gone are the days of the USA being the best backetball players in the world.

    However not all is changing.... Canada still sucks.

    The days of the US having the best basketball players in the world is not over. Coach K is just being stupid. If you want to play international basketball, you need to leave LeBron, Carmello, and D-Wade off the team and add guys like Redick, Morrison, Bowen, Battier, etc. If you want to put all superstars on the team, let them run free and play Americanized street basketball. You can't play ghetto ball with defensive, perimiter shooting players, and you can't play international basketball with ghetto ballers. Coach K needs to wake the hell up and pick one style or the other.

    These other teams have all year to prepare, and to learn to play together. A good part of a game is knowing your team mates and what to do in any situation. It's like the "Pro Bowl" football game. You throw the best players on a team, and that doesn't mean they are going to put up 50 points. They don't play together all the time.
    I'm not happy USA lost, but not surprised.

    I'm not sure who would be ashamed more if Canada beat the US in basketball. The US that they lost or Canada that they've gotten to good at a fairy game.LOL JK Baseball and basketball may be struggling but I'd only worry once you lose your football dominance, cause what else matters
