Rubio is overrated...

He's a great hustler, but can't shoot and is not strong enough to compete with the grown men in the NBA. Let's see how he develops in a few years since he's still a kid. If he gets a shot and works on his athleticism he could be a great player. But as for right now I can't see him starting for an NBA team. IMO he has alot of potential and has superb IQ for someone his age, but he has alot to work on if he wants to compete with NBA talent.

I just saw the game between China and Germany. The refs really made the game. They were afraid of a call against China in their stadium. :lol: There were calls for travelling and fouls against Germany, which made me laugh.

Kobe is a detriment to this team, he can't score, is foul prone, Wade comes in for him and dominates. This is not a coincidence.

It's pretty much just the same as just counting golds, but it'll make it seem a little bit more just.


Agreed.

Agreed. Paul Pierce should be on the team so Team USA would have a guaranteed gold medal.

Damn that Bolt dude litterally just blew my mind

Hopefully it was figuratively and not literally :wink: but yeah, the guy is unreal. Just strolling to the finish line... A man among boys. It would be like LeBron playing in Europe...

Enjoy...

Alright I was able to quickly cap a youtube video before it got flagged and uploaded it onto rapidshare. Sorry about the quality, and the fact that the commentary is in spanish, but this should do for now...

There are two different videos, both in spanish...

Its kind of funny to hear how different commentators react to the race... In one of the vids a spanish commentator screams "puta" at the end of the race, jokes lol...


EDIT: Just got a good quality english commentary video, you guys can thank me later haha


I'm going to keep the spanish videos cuz they're so damn funny...

Links:

Video 1 English: http://rapidshare.com/files/137773169/get_video_3_.html
Video 2 Spanish: http://rapidshare.com/files/137773675/get_video.html
Video 3 Spanish: http://rapidshare.com/files/137774032/get_video_2_.html

NOTE: Open the file using vlc media player, its in flv format...

Man, this Usain Bolt is like a Ferrari ! When he was about to finish before slowing down his seconds were like 6.8 - 7 and i though he at least would finish below 9.5, but i was even more amazed when he slowed and hit his chest ! Superb ! Fantastic ! Incredible ! ... and a lot of room !

You need to download VLC media player. After getting that, you won't need another media player ever again. Its basically able to play any file format out there...

Pretty small file as well...
