The Greeks Fought Like aincient gods like the ancient spartans in batle.
they fought for the person that was next to em and not for theyre personal gain and arogance .
and that the team play .

i agree i think the usa should have iverson and kobe they are two of the greatest players that have ever played basketball... the usa made a mistake here especially not wanting iverson playing with them...when he has carried them over the years.... and he is still on top of his game
