    Cabbages always plays well against the U.S. in international competition but couldn't do anything in the NBA. He was awful.
    he was a decent backup combo, too bad his mouth was far beyond that and general expectations were for him to have huge impact.

    Shot selection FAIL for the U.S. Kobe and LeBron should not be forcing off-balance jumpers.

    This team was built around defense....and they're playing no defense today. This is a predictable result.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    How many layups and wide open three pointers have Lithuania had so far? Unacceptable defense.

    Team USA ran its mouth about being able to beat the Dream Team, yet they are fighting for their lives against a mediocre Lithuania squad that is 1-2 in Pool Play.

    What the hell happened to Kevin Love's FT shot?

    13-24 from the line.

    Typical black hole selfish play by Carmelo. The U.S. has a 3-1 edge on the fast break and he jacks up a three.

    It's only selfish when it doesn't go in.

    No, you always look to pass to your teammate to get a shot at the rim as opposed to a three pointer. Carmella doesn't know what "pass" means.

    Not a fan of the 1 on 1 play, but at least we decided to try defensively.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Love scores with 4 seconds left, grabs the ball and the time runs out before Lithuania touches it. that's pretty moronic.

    I dont remember that in the rules of basketball.

    If you hadn't noticed, pretty much all of these international teams look for the 3 in transition.

    Camrelo's role is to score the ball. He doesn't have to pass it if he's open for a good shot.

    Really? So you shouldn't try to first get the high percentage shot?

    If Carmella isn't scoring he is useless. He does nothing else well besides occasionally getting hot from the perimeter.

    An open three from Carmelo IS a high percentage shot.

    The Nigeria game was a fluke. This shooting performance is what we can expect with greater regularity. And yet Team USA keeps jacking them. Kobe has terrible shot selection and has played poor defense as well in this game. He doesn't belong on the floor.

    The defense is gone again, but the fact were playing the smallest team imaginable is not helping.

    Lebron and Durant as your PF/C combo is a really stupid idea. Yet K keeps putting that lineup out there.

    You do wonder what's behind coach K basically benching every big man our team and leaving us defenseless.
