Re: TEAM USA VS. Turkey Basketball
Yeah, they certainly have a better set of team values this year than in years past.
I like that Kobe has asked to be a defensive stopper and that Kidd has no problem taking 0 shots in a game. That's the kind of stuff we need.
This isn't even close to being the same competition that "The Dream Team" faced in the early 90's. I think they would have been in for a rude awakening if they came into the games thinking they'd skate through each team. The rest of the World is beginning to catch up to the US in terms of talent and (it seems like) they have a much better grasp of team/individual fundamentals.
