Why? WHy lose to the USA 113-73 why?

It is humiliating! I knew our basketball team would lose to the USA bball team but not by 40 points:mad: Anyway who else in this forum loves basketball as much as i do. If you do, which NBA team do you support? I support the LAKERS.

I am a fan of the Larry Bird Boston Celtics.

The NBA has been unwatchable since Jordan left the Bulls.

1000% Correct.


NBA basketball has absolutely zero appeal to me. I hate it now, but from 1991-1998 it was terrific. I used to watch every single finals and playoff game.
NBC coverage was also 1000% better.

Gosh I couldn't echo that statement any louder. I used to love watching the games. The commentary was better then, especially since you didn't have to spend half of your time hearing about the legal proceedings the players are involved in.

Sigh, shame so many of our sports are ending up this way.

I live in Chicago, but I dont really support the bulls. For me, since I am not really into bball, it changes for me who I am cheering for at the beginning of the season and follow them through the year, it depends what deals have been made. but I was happy to see Miami win!

I actually cheer for other nations playing the USA basketball team, and was happy when the US came in 8th, or whatever place they came in.

Remember the real Dream Team...

That team would still be the best in the world if it was still assembled.

I still remember watching that olympics and every basketball game the US had and I agree with the previous posters. I don't really like watching basketball that much anymore.

We used to attend a lot of the Lakers games and watch them semi-religiously on TV, but the team definitely has a lot of work cut out for it. We need a good center, a better triangle offense and more than just Kobe to win more games.

I like the warriors, which is unfortunate because they stink


at least they're fun to watch


no sport has hotter cheerleaders (that you sit close enough to see) than basketball


it's got more action than baseball, takes up less time than football, and isn't canadian like hockey

Ye man i totally agree about a new center, even though Kwame brown has improved he isn't consistent. Im glad we have radmonavic.(3-pointers)
