I'm currently watching the New Zealand v. Jugo slavija FIBA basketball semifinal. During hafltime NBC had a few guests crying about the USA losing. What it boils down to is this, and all those on NBC agree. The attitudes of the American NBA stars. They are unwilling to 1. play as a team. 2. unwilling to give up more time for training and other international matches. Take this in comparison to our Soccer national team. In the USA the players take great pride in playing for the national team. It is every bit as important for them to play for and play well for thier country as they do their clubs.
