Game Preview: USA VS. BRAZIL

Kobe hasnt been needed much, only playing 17.5 min/game, just a mere sampling of Mamba24. I feel like Im visiting Costco, with all those food samples to try. These sweet little old ladies that smile and pleasantly offer neat things to eat are really clever. Why? Because they make you want more, and to get more you must purchase the item. With Kobe, weve seen a sampling of spectacular dunks, nifty behind the back passes, three point swishes, tenacious defense, and some incredible moves that have us and the crowds yelling for more. Instead of more Kobe, we are forced to listen to Bill Walton read from the World Almanac. Question: Which is more boring? Bill Walton sharing geographical facts or elevator music? Id say its a toss up. Today all of that changes, because we play Brazil, which is led by Leandro Barbosa of Phoenix Suns fame. Some Fatty Fun Facts: Last game: USA defeats Canada 113-63; Brazil defeats Virgin Islands 93-89 (The team we beat by 62 pts) Whos Hot, Hot, Hot? Team USA: Everybody.
