Default Re: TEAM USA VS. Turkey Basketball

I'll grant you this: Teamwork will always trump raw talent. LJ's junior year at StV/StM, the team they played in the state finals had nothing to stop him, but they played solid team ball, good defense, and the undisciplined Irish lost the game. They were outcoached as well.

But that was 1 versus 5. The NBA is becoming a more disciplined league because of the infusion of European players and their value of teamwork (assists, playing D, hustle)...and it will pay dividends this year.
