Team USA needs to stop trying

Team USA needs to stop trying to go for the highlight play and just get the easy bucket. Too many dunks missed.

Westbrook and Gordon were the

Westbrook and Gordon were the first guards off of the bench. That can't be good for Rondo either.

Rubio has GREAT size at the point.

I like how the back of Gasol's jersey just says "Marc" on it.

I think the Spain team is going inside now. USA with 3 guards now.

I have no idea. It's between IU, Butler and North Carolina I think.

I hope he goes to IU. I think it's pretty close though.

Rubio!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dude just put two great passes & one good pass.
He's playing solid D so far, forced a turnover on Gordon who was probably overdribbling.

He's not a offensive guy. I think he could average like 11-13 points in the NBA but he might average 13 assists too.

He's alright. Not the

He's alright. Not the greatest defender but not a liability because he's tall ( almost 6-6)

He's not Steve Nash but not Jason Kidd either.

How is it lucky when a team is missing shots??? Rubio on ball defense isnt that great, but his ball handling and court vision is legit...

Rubio has very nice court

Rubio has very nice court vision, flair and has active hands in the passing lanes but... I wouldn't call him a stud.

He seems to be lacking some quickness laterally and I think his jumpshot is questionable. I watched him shoot after the whistle and his release looked bad.

He looks like he'll be very effective in the NBA in the pick and roll.

Rondo and Granger haven't

Rondo and Granger haven't seen the floor yet. I THINK I heard them say Rondo isn't playing this game due to some sort of an injury suffered last game.
