USA Basketball Team

In past Olympics, I have never really followed the USA Basketball team. Probably because they haven't been too impressive. But, this year, it seems as if they are concentrating more on their work as a team, than as individuals in the past. The following video was turned into a commercial and I just had to share it.



sung by Marvin Gaye

Update.... USA 101, China 70 .... wahoo!

Happy Sunday, y'all!

What? Don't you remember the Dream Team?! What year was that? 1996?

I like it too that they are not just focusing on Kobe or LeBron.

Great video! I'm so glad they won... I mean, I'm so glad they KICKED ASS!

Lol.

Yea, their coach has them focusing on team work. It's not all about me this year. What a welcome change that is.

As much as I CAN'T STAND Coach K... (puke) ... he is doing a pretty good job!

I barely remember the dream team...from 1992... ever since then, it seems as of most of the players are too busy focusing on themselves and being cocky jerks.

I don't think I'll feel for the Olympics till maybe the track and field starts.

I watched a bit of the game as well and agree that they seemed more focused on the team aspect than in years past. Good luck gearing up for this school year. I can't believe it's already here.

It looks like this time they got the right mix of players to win Gold again.
