Great showing by the team, staying strong in the first half despite China shooting the lights out, and then blowing them out in the second half.
Let's hope the guys can start hitting 3's and then continues to play like they did in the 2nd half today.

The Magic should pay for their own arena. Heck, they can afford it. They should also keep their other promises to the people of Orange County.

What the hell does this have to do with the Olympics? There are plenty oof forums on here for you to spout your Guetzloe garbage. Don't ruin this one.
Just to let you know... I don't disagree with you - but there is a place for it - and it's not here.

Dwight Howard did not look impresive. To be the featured Center of the squad, he was out performed by Bosh a little. Howard needs to represent the USA and quit whinning if he gets foul no called. I wished I had the opportunity to be in his shoes and don the American uniform. I may get push into the ground but I will get up without any shame.

Howard did not play aggressive at all. His performance could have been way better and Bosh did out play him. Even when I went to the Orlando game vs the Lakers I noticed Howard does not really play that hard. He is the type of player that can score 40 points and grab 20 rebounds a game if he wanted to. I just think Howard is a much better player then he has shown the world so far.

Ahh, it has begun! I guess China was supposed to be okay but it's Greece, Argentina and Spain we need to give the biz to. If our ballers do what they do best, I don't see any country stopping us from rolling over there, taking our Gold back, and coming home. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

i agree with you but you still have to take in account 82 games a season plus practice and traveling then went to china to represent his country coming off of an injury. so i would say he still has that potential if he doesn't do the olympics next year and with and added post presence this season with tony battie. oh and he could develop a post gameand a jumper.

Brother, Howard gets pay to play 82 with 41 of them on the road. NO EXCUSES! Thats the difference between you paying to be at the game and him to be in the game. NO EXCUSE, PLAY BABY PLAY!
