USA Falls to Greece, Misses Shot at Gold


Aw, Here It Goes!
I woke up at 5:00 am to catch the last half of this game, and they end up loosing the game, but Kirk Hinrich hit to clutch threes to keep them in it and LeBron tried to take control with a couple nice drives but overall it seems that they couldn't stop their offense. Greece had a guard (dont remember his name he's going to the Rockets though) who was just about unstoppable he had over twenty points and seemed to score when his team needed it most, they also had a huge center that reminds me of Glen "Big Baby" Davis, but team US can still try to win the bronze.

In the HOUSTON CHRONICLE, Fran Blinebury writes that "Team USA traveled halfway around the globe to re-establish its prominence in the basketball community, but wound up merely getting all of the same lessons hammered home again as Greece ran away with a 101-95 victory over the Americans in the semifinals of the World Basketball Championship. Greece shot a stunning 35 of 56 (65 percent) in the game, including a sizzling 27 of 38 (71 percent) on two point shots."

OMG this is horrible, how could they lose to Greece, I am not dissing them, but come on, you have all the best players in the world, and for Greece you have a few players playing in the NBA. This should be an embarassement to every single player and coach on that team. Horrible.
