I don't think they yearn for it like the other teams do. These guys are paid millions of dollars to play in the NBA. They want a championship ring, they don't care so much about an Olympic gold medal. I think they should incorporate some college players in because they hustle. Now, I have to give it to players like Kobe Bryant (which I don't like) and Allen Iverson - they hustle and they work for it. The rest of them act like spoiled pretty boys.

You have a very special view.But i think the most important reason is that they had not enough time to get together and practise,that's my opinion,thanks for your reply

The biggest reason, is the lack of preparation is such a way in the defense and mentality. A good coach also makes lack, that the case of USA. The team, is so good, the players, are the best but the competion is not so important. Thanks
