    Greece, like they did in 2006 to slap them back down to 3rd in the FIBA rankings.

    Top 8 european teams are at least an equal match to the USA + argentina
    Top level players don't make a top level team, that has been the main problem for the USA, and it still is!

    I disagree, this is one of the best USA teams put together since 1992. Jason Kidd and Lebron James are two of the most team oriented players in the NBA today; both are legitimate triple-double threats every night. Kobe is playing outstanding defense rather than trying to score 50 points per game. I could go on and on bout the rest of the US squad.

    Changes I would make for Beijing:

    -Chandler out for Chris Bosh
    -Mike Miller out for Dwayne Wade

    Anyways, USA plays Argentina's B-Team on Thursday at 9 pm Pacific Time on ESPN2. You will be able to see how the current US squad plays against the close thing to a world-class team.
