Do you hope the U.S. basketball team does NOT win the gold?


I do. The way the team humiliated the Nigerian team ( 156-73) was appalling. It was like the big kid at school beating up the little kid, rubbing his face in the dirt, then making him run home naked in front of his whole class. This was unnecessary and ridiculous. If they would give a gold medal for bullying, we would win it hands down. If this is the attitude displayed by our American representatives on the world sport stage, no wonder the rest of the world hates us. How do you feel?

    I believe they had around 26 3's. That's about 78 points. What about the other 78 points? With those two stats, that's no less than 65 shots, not including misses and 73 pts. by Nigeria. How much time was on that clock? Not humiliating?
