USA basketball loses again

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- On one of the darkest nights in the history of American basketball, George Karl shed some light on the root of the problem.

``The money and greed of the NBA. Does that have an effect on our competitive nature? Yeah, you can write that,'' Karl said.
The U.S. team lost again late Saturday night at the World Championships, dropping an 81-75 decision to Spain in the fifth-place game. The Americans finished sixth -- the worst showing ever by a U.S. men's team at a major international competition.

This is unbelievable. Literally unbelievable. We have to stop thinking that the US is so much more dominant than everyone else and start working with other countries. We can actually do this at The Crossover because communication is so much better and travel is cheaper. We can network globally and should.
