Spurs At The Olympics

So we have,
Manu -- Argentina
Tony, Boris, Nando --- France
Tiago --- Brazil
Mills - Australia

With the injury history and age of some of those listed above do we absolutely have to have approximately half our team playing in this? Maybe it is time the Spurs started focusing on finding Americans who can play.

Nah, 'The Sandwich Hunter' is probably trolling his home grounds of New Hampshire for his 'hoagie grail'.

I've been saying that for years in regards to Manu, and now that Tony is older he shouldn't be playing after this Olympics. Tiago is a big worry of mine as well.

Do those goggles have lenses in them, or is Tony going for the Westbrook effect?

I hear what you saying about international playing,however Manu didnt play international ball two years ago and he still got hurt, Derick Rose didnt play international ball either this past season and he got hurt so to me is they way some players play, manu, derick rose, dwayne wade play way too reckless so does increases their chances or getting hurt but I understand about playing international specially manu who already won an olympic medal not need to risk it.

I'm fairly certain, based on the time/space continuum, that all players are getting older whether they play in the Olympics or not.

I'm taking the positive side of Spurs summer play in the Olympics.

Splitter needs all the floor time he can get to improve.

Mills is getting realtime floor leader experience.

Parker, Diaw and DeColo (3 key Spurs) are getting great experience executing together against real competition, not team mates in camp.

Manu is starting to fall apart physically whether he plays in the summer or not and the Spurs have gone guard-heavy to compensate. At least its good for his head playing for his homeland.

Key players from the Spurs strongest NBA opponents are playing in the Olympics too.

Don't forget Brett Brown, head coach for Team Australia, as well as Assistant Coach for our beloved Spurs...

I certainly enjoy watching the hoops having a vested interest in USA (Home Country), Argentina with Manu, France with Parker, Diaw, and De Colo, Brazil with Splitter, Mills with Australia. Argentina with Manu looks like they are world beaters... That Manu magic will cause havoc this Olympics I believe...

Most interesting for me was Splitter getting an unsportsman like foul for trying to pants Mills on a fastbreak ..... are they too close?

I can't answer that but hopefully its an indication that Tiago is studying old tapes of Charles Barkley. The only other depantsing I can recall was, when during a jump ball and everyone was looking up getting ready for the toss, Barkley pulled down the opponents shorts.

Ok why is a ref grabbing TP's jersey and screaming his undieing love to him? That is a winner for one of the weirdest ball photo's I have ever seen.

And look at the box score from that game. Looks like two NBA rosters during a regular season game.
