Groin shots are becoming the norm in Olympic basketball

France’s Nic Batum is the latest Olympian to target an opponent’s groin. This photo shows Batum punching Spain’s Juan Carlos Navarro below-the-belt in the closing seconds of today’s quarterfinal game. Batum, who was not ejected, seemed proud of his actions.

Doc would coach Team USA only if Pop doesn’t

There’s been a little talk lately about Doc Rivers potentially coaching the 2016 Olympic team.  It seems like a good idea, and Doc is into it… but with one catch. Doc Rivers just said on NBC that “you’d have to say yes” to an offer to coach the Olympic team, but also endorsed Popovich. — [...]

Hubris makes this Team USA unlikeable

Hubris makes this Team USA unlikeable

This may ruffle a few feathers, many will call me un-American or some other crazy name, but I have grown to dislike this years version of Team USA. Why you ask? Hubris. Hubris is defined as an overbearing pride or presumption; arrogance. Let’s be honest, that pretty much defines 80% of this Team USA roster. [...]

Rondo just didn’t give a damn about playing for Team USA

Rondo just didn’t give a damn about playing for Team USA

Over the summer, Rajon Rondo's agent explained that Rajon just wasn't really into playing in the Worlds.  Today on WEEI, Danny hammered the same point home.  “I think Rajon really didn’t want to do it,” Ainge said. “He was pretty tired after the end of the NBA finals and he needed some rest. He’s not [...]

Creaky Knees Bryant to play for Team USA in 2012

Creaky Knees Bryant to play for Team USA in 2012

When I first read this story on the WWL about Kobe telling Coach K on his Sirius XM radio show that he plans to play for Team USA in 2012, I was pretty excited. Mostly because he's already old — 32, but straight out of high school — he'll be older in 2012 — 34; [...]
