So Easy, Marc Gasol Can Do It

The commercialization of the Olympics simply must stop.  I get that Geico is sponsoring the coverage… to put the Geico Caveman on the Spanish National Team is going too far. 

Seriously now… I don’t get how a team that features this doofus, Pau Gasoft, and a 17-year-old is regarded as the most serious threat to the US.  Team Red, White and Blue smoked the Spaniards 119-82 in a game that saw the US regain is outside shooting stroke (12-25 3pt fg). 

LeBron was the man again.  He had 18 while DWade and Carmelo Anthony had 16 each.  The Wade we see here is the Wade that is going to tear up the NBA in the first half of the season.  He’s sick. 

One last note:  Jason Kidd finally took his first shot attempt in the Olympics (a made lay up).  I don’t know if he has even played 10 minutes a game.  Yet… he starts and then gives way to Chris Paul.  Why is he even there?

  1. Was Marc Gasol grabbing himself before he shot each of his free throws? And I thought I had seen every free throw routine there was.

  2. M. Gasol: oh haha i get it …i quit ..but i get it
    M. Gasol: Oh and i’ll have the roast duck with the mango salsa

  3. … And i’m pretty sure he’s there to keep Williams’ and Paul’s heads from getting too inflated … Team USAs problem the past 8 years has been they’ve seen olympic gold as a birth right or as a summer vacation … They have been the best but they then expect that alone to win things for them … You can see flashes of it even now when williams or paul get a little too much “showtime” when they get in and give up a bunch of quick TOs

    .. However theyre starting to play like Brazil and Italy play in the world cup …theyre better than everyone AND they play like it… It looks like they’ve turned the corner combining effort and talent

  4. Funny post.
