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!

40 and 20 night in and night out was only possible in the in the early 70s or older. now dwight still should strive for that goal but realisticly his chances of doing that would require him to develop all the facets of his game to a tee and then hopr for a lot of luck.

Why you are so proud?
it is a shame, take our gold back?
that's why USA is sending professional players vs amateurs?
I am not proud on that, I prefers to see college players fighting for a medal, not matter what, but NBA players?
it is like having the all stars playing against kids.
USA is a joke.

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!

Uhhh, the other countries use PROFESSIONAL players too... it's not like they sent a bunch of high school players out there.

In fact if you paid attention, you'd notice that NBA stars like Pau Gasol, Jose Calderon and former NBA MVP Dirk Nowitzki are all playing for their home countries.
