US basketball down in flames AGAIN

Jerry Colangelo, the man in charge of putting together the recent version of basketball's Dream Team, was forced into making excuses for the bunch who experienced yet another nightmare.

The United States lost to Greece in the semifinals of the World Championships on Friday, despite the fact Greece had NO NBA players.

Coangelo spoke on ESPN's Cold Pizza this morning, saying the internation game is so much more physical than the Americans are used to and blah blah blah.

Jerry, the United States is stock full of the best basketball players on the planet. I don't care whether they play on a playground, an NBA arena or a alley near the Parthenon, there is no excuse for the Americans' latest pathetic performance.
