I had the Mexico game on last night & saw that Nolan Richardson coaches Mexico. I'm sitting here now thinking how ugly the game will get if he actually tries to run "40 minutes of hell" on Team USA.


BTW if you like watching train wrecks the game is @ 10:00 PM on ESPN2.

Nice little piece on the last game

If we’ve learned one thing from watching Team USA this summer, it’s this: the debate over who’s the best player in the world isn’t a debate anymore. Kobe Bryant has been the primary factor in why this year’s version of the U.S. squad is so much better than the last few versions. (No, we’re not dissing Jason Kidd, it’s just the truth.) Last night was Kobe’s best game of the tournament — he dropped 20 points and three triples on Brazil, and held tourney leading scorer Leandro Barbosa to four points, four turnovers and zero assists. Before the game, we know a lot of folks thought that even if Brazil lost, Barbosa would go off. Turns out he was taken out of the equation,
