Here are a few cool pics from Team USA's 111-88 victory over Lithuania last Sunday. I TIVO'ed the game and plan on checking it out later this week. However, the win tells me that squeaker against Brazil last week had more to do with the typical NBA back-to-back factor than the world catching up to USA Basketball.
The win also shows the relative lack of interest home and abroad of USA Basketball. Just look at the photos... plenty of seats available for the game. How is this even happening? You have a loaded USA squad with the best young stars in the game in Wade, Lebon, Melo, etc.; the smallish arenas in China and Korea; and a limited schedule of two games in each country, these games should be sold-out.
Being a hoops junkie, I find this very disappointing. I understand the general lack of interest here in the states as baseball is in full roided form, football is around the corner and people are
melting enjoying the summer heat. But how is this team not selling out in Korea and China?
