because they don't know how to shoot and play team ball. look at greece; how well they pass the ball and shoot it as well. king james couldn't hit a three and was missing a ton of free throws; dwade chose not to pass and do it all by himself; 'melo disappeared in the fourth and chris paul wasn't the same player he was in the prelims. if i was the one assigned to assemble the team for the tournament of americas next year in venezuela i'd put more shooters like redd and even jj reddick. i might even think of not putting in dwade and king james there because what they need to have is a team with good players who know how to shoot and not guys who are superstars but don't know the basics of team play and doesn't know how to play motion. in these international meets you have to have players who can shoot, pass the ball, play defense and not rely on just one-on-one isolation plays. but again that's just me and what i think and observed based on what i saw in these championships and from the past international tournaments.
si kobe na naman sisisihin nyan.. tsk tsk tsk... patay ka na naman kobe.. hehehe!
kobe will play in the olympics, sya na ung shooter.. if there's one man na mareretain para sa olympics, c melo un!!!! cguro dapat talaga andun c michael redd..
