    what does it mean 'to keep his team grounded'? my English fails me there.
    Keep his teams ego in check. Keep them motivated.

    He's sabotaging his own teams defense. He did it against Lithuania too, after they were so good on D the first 3 games with Chandler anchoring everything inside.

    Ball clearly off of Argentina, and they somehow get it. Unreal.

    We need to have someone under the rim to punch balls back through once they go in. Apparently, that's perfectly legal too.

    Yep. This is just getting absurd and not even worth watching. Call the game without prejudice.

    I'm going to be consistent. This isn't prejudice, it's incompetence.

    Argentina is the best flopping team in earth, I'll give them that.

    Against referees this incompetent, that's a major, major advantage.

    Boy I am not sure. USA hasn't got one 50-50 call. That official called a foul on Lebron with absolutely no contact.

    frankly, poor officiating is consistent with having inexperienced referees in the game (officials who aren't from top FIBA league level). maybe it sounds unfair, but i've been taking a look at referee list after every game i thought wasn't called well, and it's way too consistent.

    Oh, Argentina without a doubt should be down 9-10 points right now. But their edge in getting calls has a lot to do with their acting ability rather than bias from the officials.

    Manu saw lebron fall down at the end there and dove on him like he got shot. That's FIBA ball at it's best.

    If Coach K is so concerned about Team USA's D why is Love playing at all? His man beats him to the rim every time on D.

    There was contact. Manu stepped on his hand.

    All I can figure is Coach K unleashed the hounds against Nigeria saw what the team could do and is now trying to rein them in, but man the D just hasn't been that great the whole Olympics and there are a couple players that always seem to be in when it's at the worst.

    The d was very good the first 3 games, including against France. Then K completely changed his rotation after the Nigeria game.

    Another flop by Manu. Run into Chandler and fall down to draw that 4th foul.

    ...and the interior defense goes to the bench with him.

    I think the flopping has sufficiently pissed everyone off. Lebron is in kill mode now.

    Glad to see the USA starting to play well in the 2nd half. Also glad to see LeBron getting called for his fouls. Perhaps the Pacers could import these refs!

    Durant is angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.

    Wow. Did Carmelo really get punched in the nuts in that 3?

    Argentina flopped all over the place fishing for calls, and now they want to throw cheap shots after they are getting their asses kicked?

    Yep. Campazzo literally punched Carmelo in the balls after he shot that three.


    Good luck getting coach K to call off the dogs now....
