USA vs. Spain

Even though its only an exhibition it should be an intense matchup. Reports are that Marc Gasol might not play because of his shoulder, but it should be an intense matchup. Im not buying into this notion that Spain is gonna be holding back, schematically I can see them not showing a couple things but you don't get to many chances at playing Team USA at home.

Spain has the biggest

Spain has the biggest advantage over the US than any other team...size. 3 legit NBA 7 footers in Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, and Serge Ibaka will show if team USA can really handle teams with superior size.

Ibaka is not a 7 footer, let

Ibaka is not a 7 footer, let alone a "legit" one. In fact, many so-called 7 footers are under 7 feet. Everyone over 6-9 is considered a 7 footer. No, a "legit" 7 footer.

You're right, but Serge is

You're right, but Serge is 6'10" which may as well be 7'. I think at least 20 teams in the NBA would love to have Serge Ibaka as their starting center and he'd be a legit enough center for them.

I expect a close game. Spain

I expect a close game. Spain definitely isn't intimidated by the United States. Looking forward to the game.

Ibaka can also match and in

Ibaka can also match and in fact exceed the athleticism of the US team except for Lebron and Westbrook. I'm not surprised if the game turns out to be close.

Melo is one of the only

Melo is one of the only reasons we are still in the game.

What worries me more is that they haven't played Marc yet...

Something else I don't get is

Something else I don't get is why is it 5 fouls and then you are out in International Ball?

Is it to limit rough play so there isn't a national feud?

5 fouls

NBA - 48 mins. -> 6 fouls = 1/8

FIBA - 40 mins -> 5 fouls = 1/8

Officiating has been suspect...that one travel on KD was non-existent and Westbrook got called for a foul because he out-jumped a flopper..
