Default USA vs. Brazil Game thread.

This will be a better game for the U.S, although I fully expect them to win by at least 20 pts or so.

There's been a few decent NBA players from Brazil:

Barbosa, Nene, Varejao.

I don't think there is a chance they win by 40 lol. This is a good team. They have players. They might but I am guessing 15-20.

LOL @ EVERYONE THINKING THEY WOULD BEAT THE DREAM TEAM!! HAHA

Scottie Pippen was right, they'd win by 20-25pts. The Original Dream Team would never let anyone get ahead by 10

"would dwight howard provide inside offense..not likely"
the white guy announcer..wtf? where do they get these guys?


FRan fraschilla is the announcer that said it

haha classic over-exaggeration by an NBA fan.

Very few people said they 'would' beat the dream team. people said they 'could' possibly or it would be closer then many think.

The Dream Team also had multiple players that could score inside at will, and this team has zero. And they had the best player to ever walk the planet.

The lack of scoring ability inside gives the Dream Team the edge in my opinion. But these guys definitely have superior athletes.

All it takes is 1qtr for the moral of a team to be crushed but if anything it proves that the bench players of team usa who started this game arent good enough to hold down the fort against somewhat competitive opponents.

edit: faulty m button

Do you think we can get through one game with this team without comparing them to the Dream Team? Can't each team stand on its own merits?

Agreed.

We'll never know, let's just leave it at that.

Thanks for the heads up!

But I might as well be watching a WNBA game....

Why don't they just skip to the award ceremony?

dont take this as me saying that todays international teams are not better then the early 90's teams, but there were international teams made up of pros that had been playing together for years. i wouldnt say the dream team didnt face good competition, they just didnt face comparable competition lol.
