The aussies are in the games. We call our team the BOOMERS. ( not in honour of Chris Berman fortunately but the aussie name for a male kangaroo) Our team are perennial 4th to 8th place candidates.

This game highlighted that the USA basketball team lacks cohesion at this stage. From an outsiders perspective this squad is playing as a group of superstars and not as a team.

If they dont find some cohesion they will be seriously pushed by strong national squads like Italy, Spain, Greece and Argentina that are highly polished in playing a team game.

The 19yr point guard Patrick mills (st marys college California) found some very easy lanes in this game. He is a very raw kid who looked pretty good. This is the area where team USA will need to tighten up IMO.

Thank you for an outsiders perspective. It's actually good to know how the international teams feel about us. Unfortunately, our media tends to hype them up, even when they play...questionably.

I'm not going to rag on our guys until they lose, IF they lose. A win is a win.

Let's just see what happens. The game is on right now!

There's no doubt that the US team is the most talented in the World. But I remember LeBron's Jr year when his team was beaten by a bunch of skinny white dudes who were better coached and played as team.

Remember what Herb Brooks said about his '80 hockey team? "I don't want the BEST players, I want the RIGHT players".

The 1st Quarter has ended and the score is 20-16. Early on it looked like Team USA was confused by the Chinese zone but it was short lived. They look OK, I think they will put it away here in the 2nd.

Half time USA up +12. Haven't shot well from line or outside, otherwise OK. I like the little Chinese shooters. They are using Y Ming to set up their outside guys.

Yeah, against teams with better guards, the game will be much closer.
