Lots of fawning over Vince Carter for jumping over a (crouching) 7 footer to dunk on him. Yeah, that's great, but you know what? I'm not going to watch a bunch of millionaires pump their fists and dance around after they beat up on the Lithuanian National Team. Play the anthem, wrap them in flags, shoot them in soft focus and they're still NBA players playing in a CBA-caliber tournament. Ringers. To the extent I'm watching the Olympics, I'm pulling for the American atheletes -- with the exception of the basketball team. I hope they lose. I like both Vin Baker and Ray Allen. If this were 1992, I would be cheering for them to bring home a medal. They don't belong in Sydney.
