NBA Comix: Legends of Greek Basketball

Legends of Greek Basketball

A few notes.

  1. I really did look for legends. I think Greece would be hard put to field a team in the Legends of the World One-on-One Tournament.
  2. The kid above is not Greek. He merely represents the caliber of player our team was prepared to face.
  3. Man, it’s a damn good thing we didn’t take Bruce Bowen – the results could have been humiliating.
  4. Say whatever you want about how the NBA is the end-all, be-all of basketball, but I think it’s feeble as hell that the USA can’t put together a competitive team. Tip for the selection committee: “Me First” doesn’t fly on the world stage.
