Im starting to think coach K cant coach.  All this talent and cant even dominate a team with so few superstars.  Geez spain gave them bigger fits than i thought.

International teams have gotten so much better recently.  That said, the Dream Team relished stepping on the throat of their competition.  They didn't want to win, they wanted to crush.

And Spain's performance just goes to show you that the Dream Team would have MURDERED the 2012 version inside.

yep, Dream Team's competitiveness alone would pummel this team. Very tough minded and wanted to let the world know how absolutely dominant they were & showed it.

What made Spain a good team was that they played good 'Team' orientated ball. They had good movement & passing.USA was just 1-on-1 or 3 pointers. The only time they decided to play good D was the 2nd half or 4th quarter against the better teams. A good dominant team (as TUSA should have been) clamps down on their opponents from the get go. They allowed teams to score significantly high amount of points. It just seemed like their game plan was to outscore every opponent.
