Kaspars Kambala (LAT) outplayed Ronny. Turiaf couldn't get his shot going while Biedrins were guarding him. Andris had a bad offensive game (except one nice reverse dunk with a foul (of course he didn't make the free throw)), FG: 3-10 and FT: 0-3.

p.s. You guys are arrogant..
:? :|


Thanks for the info, box score mate.

It seems Andris still hasn't a smidgin of offense and Turiafs rebound numbers are looking decent over the first two games.

P.S. Anyone who calls themselves world champs in competitions that are national is either arrogant or ignorant. :)

Ok............Ill say one more thing that shows how silly the whole thing is.

Typically and hillariously, they even contradict themselves with the very name of the leagues/associations they give themselves =

National Basketball Association
National Football League
National Hockey League
Major League Baseball

National? what does that mean?..............doesnt really sound like it has anything to do with the rest of the world does it? so dont call yourselves World Champions then.

Just another example of American self patting on the back.............cuz your just so damned neat!!! :roll:

It's true though. Outside of Soccer, us > world.


I guess the only "true " World Champions would be soccer, track and field, and boxing.

Credit where credit is due...............when I threw that in, I was imagining an old Bill Hicks rant where he was talking about Pro-Lifers.

He was jumping all over the stage taking the p*ss out of them saying something like "Ohh, aint life great, aint it great to be human, we are so neat!"

Very appropraite, as that is how I see the sad little f*ckers who consider America to the centre of the Universe and couldnt possibly consider another culture or state of being/mind outside their own.

Wait, what am I saying? America doesnt have any culture.............at best its manufactured, stolen or plain false.

(Sorry, in a bad/rant'ie type mood)

(Actually no...............Im not sorry..............cuz its true)

Most, if not all (I'm not 100% sure), Olympic sports have true World Championships. It's the U.S. Sports that are in it for the money (NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB) that don't even bother.

we have a manufactured culture because the legacy of our real history:
genocide, slavery, racism, greed and imperialism is too difficult for anyone to actually admit/face. Sure we've had great Americans and have done great things as a country, but this slapping ourselves on the back for things we had nothing to do with is ridiculous. None of us were garroting Germans at the battle of Verdun. Most likely we were watching sports bloopers then going to the Wendy's drivethru... big contributors...

and with that, I'll move my opinion over to Off Topic....

Reminds me of the time I cut myself on a piece of glass in chemistry lab. My supervisor, who was straight from china, had no idea what I was talking about when I asked for "band-aids". Technically there's no such thing as an actual band-aid (it's a brand name). eventually I was able to get it across to him before I lost all my blood.

while we are completely off topic, if you ever run into someone from Wisconsin, ask them to say "band-aid". for some reason, they can't say it without putting an upwards inflection on the end of it. always sounds like a question - "band-aid?".
