Which brings up the second bit of news that Bryant shared after Team USA crushed Argentina, 109-83, in an Olympic semifinal:

Waiters not only controlled the offense, he made some fantastic passes in traffic. One resulted in an easy layup for fellow rookie Tyler Zeller (10 points, four rebounds) in the first half. Another resulted in a wide-open baseline three for small forward Omri Casspi (nine points, 3-for-5 shooting, all threes).

We can’t just go out there and let somebody mess up, we all got to be accountable, that’s what’s going to make us better.”
“It is a process for a rookie,” Casey said. “He is not that far behind because the one thing he can do that makes up for a multitude of sins is he can shoot the ball at the end of the day and that’s part of the process too.
