Re: Team USA Basketball
Kobe has Paul Gasol (pretty good player);
Melo has Iverson;
James has Mo Williams (what a great trade by Cleveland) and Z;
Wade has Shawn Marion;
Being a Cleveland fan, I don't know as much about the supporting cast for Melo/Wade/Kobe...but those are some pretty talented players with some pretty talented players surrounding them. I don't know that the Lakers (Lost in the NBA Finals) the Cavaliers (Took the NBA Champs to 7 games in the EC Finals), the Nuggets (playing in a very talented West) are crappy teams. Miami is hard to read because Wade has been hurt, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them make a playoff push this season with a healthy "Flash" back.
If you take the "U" out of "STUD", you get STD. I'm just saying.
