USA Men's Basketball: 55 Point Favorites


I was searching around for previews for today’s game with Team Tunisia, and found that Team USA is favored by 55 points.  Read that again, 55 points.  That’s 1992 Dream Team area right there.  Since we keep coming back to comparing the 1992 Team and this year’s team.  That original Dream Team won games by that many points, so who knows how much they would have been favored by.

Today’s game will be a great tune up game for Team USA.  They really need to work on the idea that they can drive the lane and be aggressive.  No sense in becoming a jump shooting team against most of the teams in this Olympics.

Team USA has plenty of guys who can be that aggressive, like Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and even Carmelo Anthony could work more towards the basket. I said before this could help evolve Anthony’s game if he learns how to play with the best of the best, just imagine what he could do on a team that has good solid players.

Trying to find information about Team Tunisia was tough.  The only thing that kept coming up with that their team has NO NBA players, therefore USA should win this in a rout.  This one shouldn’t be close at all, and TEAM USA will score another win in what should be a run for the Gold.  Anything less is a failure.
