Team USA, and Carmelo Anthony, dominates Nigeria in a record-setting performance

Aug 2, 2012 Full story: Seattle Post-Intelligencer 34

At some point during Team USA's 156-73 win over Nigeria on Thursday, all the pretty jumpers and quick cuts to the hoop were somehow replaced by cold, hard, and ridiculous numbers.

I disagree, at least here, this Italain Gelding cries more than a starving Canadian baby who's parents can't afford to feed it. Poor guy, some American must've stole his woman, as he has nothing but hate and racism for Americans. I honestly feel sorry for the guy, getting so worked up over something he can't even do, and only being smart enough to go on, and on, and on about the SAME things. They should make a Real Men of Genius commercial about this guy.
Great analogy. Ya know yesterday I was starving and I actually screamed like a baby.I could hear Italian stallion bitching all the way here for petes sake. Can you keep it down a little Mr. Gelding until I find some bread and water.

Oh no! I'm a stupid American that made a mistake!
Very racist comments. Wouldn't expect anything less from you.
There, fixed it, but that's probably arrogant, and now I'm a poor sport, because all Americans are.
Pretty much.

I don't think it's fair, or good sport to run up the score in any sport. Never said I supported that at all.
Like it's my fault the country I was born in (because I totally got to choose where I was born...) succeeds where some don't? Like any individual citizen is out there making things this way? That's just ignorant, really. It's fine though, everyone always wants to take out the people on top.
Nothing wrong with being at the top, however, there is no point rubbing it in against obviously inferior nations. Like I said before a little bit of sportsmanship would be nice to see.

Clueless....

If they are inferior by your own admission, then that means the loss is inevitable and a loss by a large number of points should be expected. CRYING about rubbing it in, is in itself, POOR Sportsmanship.

Remember, it was the RESERVES who blew out Tunisia, not the starters...so what is to be done there? Shall we put in the coaches to even it up? Quit your whining and b!tchin'.

Ironic part of this, is had the Americans pulled up, drained the shot clock, then missed shots on purpose, to keep the score down, we'd be hearing about how arrogant they are because they didn't even try, and were just showing off. Not to mention, as we've seen in other sports in the Olympics, athletes have held back, and were disqualified for not "embracing the spirit of the Olympics". So which is it? Play your best, or only play your best unless it's a team/athlete that can't compete well and risk being booted from the games?
