Tall Blacks Vs Team USA

Smash em bro. Tall Blacks by 20.

Lindsay Tait > Derrick Rose and then no Lebron, Durant, Kobe, Howard so Tall Blacks victory should just be a formality.

Kirk Penney doesn't miss a shot, Tom Abercrombie posterizers every Team USA player at least once, Mika Vukona gets a triple double.

A guy can dream.

Steph who? James who? Should be a cakewalk.

Tall Blacks by 30 (turnovers)!

I hope the young guys saviour the moment of playing against so many great players and enjoy just enjoy themselves.
Don't give a shit about the score. If they can just play their own individual games and hit a couple of shots and stop an NBA player once defensively and do themselves proud as players, I'll be happy for them.

I think a 30pt loss will be respectable..

With no interior presence it will be a layup drill for the USA

:-(

Best chance is for Vukona to start a brawl. I would pay to see a cage fight between Vukona and Faried. Would be scary.

I really want to see how Tai Webster goes in this game. If he has a good one, it could be a game to give him confidence to get to the NBA.

Lindsay Tait should start the next 2 games, he can handle the ball and pass a lot better then Tai Webster.

Kenney & Bartlett - SMH

For some reason the ABC is only putting up the Australian games for reply.

The Tall Blacks' scenarios are mind-boggling. That group could end up with the USA 5-0 and all other teams 2-3!

But if they win their last two there is a reasonable chance they go through to the Round of 16, especially if they could get a little bit of a margin.

When you nut it down, if NZ beat Ukraine and Finland, those kind Turks beat Finland and the DR beat Turkey the TBs will go through.

paul, I think what's even amazing is that the TB’s should have won their first two games, and it was plausible and very possible for the TBs to have gone 4-1 and finish 2nd in the pool. I look back and think imagine we had Big Steve. The more I think about this pool, the more I think "Wow the TBs had a great opportunity here".

The World Cup, among other things, provides players a chance to experience new cultures. One of the coolest traditions among World Cup teams - the haka.

Judging by the looks on their faces, Derrick Rose, James Harden and Kenneth Faried didn't know what to make of the dance.
