Damn Argentina. That was dirty.
So last Olympics Team USA Basketball was the ‘Redeem Team,’ taking back the our title in basketball. So I guess this year they should be called the ‘Status Quo Team.’ All they have to do is go there and win like last time. That should be easy right? They have the best talent of the NBA(that’s not currently injured): LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul. Looking at the line-up it is a little troubling that there is only one center, Knicks’ Tyson Chandler. Chandler is great if he doesn’t run into foul trouble.
Team USA just added Thunder’s James Harden and his beard to the mix. Which is definitely a smart move in terms of defense. They also added another great defender 76er’s Andre Iguodala. They will be joining the rest of the team: Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love, Deron Williams, and Russell Westbrook.
It is a killer team if they can figure out how to play together. But I would still be watching out for Spain and France. Especially since Tony Parker is all good to play now for France.
For a while now Orlando Magic center, Dwight Howard, has been the prettiest girl at the free-agency dance. There has been speculation that Howard could be going anywhere and everywhere. Now it has become clear that Howard is leaning towards the
New Jersey Brooklyn Nets( yes with the move to Brooklyn will come a new name even though the NY Giants keep their name and play in East Rutherford, NJ). It seems that Howard is missing his BFF and All-Star point guard Deron Williams who has been with the Nets since last year. Howard and Williams are exactly what the Nets need to complete their Brooklyn make-over including a new arena and Jay-Z sitting on the slide-line as a pseudo celebrity mascot. Not to mention Nike is anxious to have Howard in a major market like NY or LA and we all know Nike means major bucks. My advice to the Magic enjoy Howard while you still have him. Like they say if you love someone, you have to let them go.
