Bad news for USA; Good news for Rockets

I just watched the shocking upset of Team USA by Greece. Unbelievable!

No one can fault the USA for slacking like at the 2004 Olympics. Greece was the better team. The USA couldn’t stop them, and the USA’s offense just wasn’t cohesive like the Greek offense.

On top of that Greek and new Rockets guard Vassilis Spanoulis was incredible. He hit clutch free throws and 3-pointers on his way to a team high 22 points. He is going to have alot more buzz coming into the NBA now! At least that’s good for the Rockets.
