Argentina beats Team USA at basketball, Hell a little chilly

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 05, 2002

For the first time since 1992, a Dream Team stocked with NBA players lost a game of basketball. It’s not that unbelievable that they lost; it was inevitable that they would eventually lose a game to somebody. It’s this quote by Paul Pierce that amazes me:

“Reggie (Miller) brought us together. He said the world is against us. The world, the stands, the refs are all against us. The only thing we can do is go out and play hard the rest of the games and get the gold medal.”

Aaaaair-balllll, aaaaair-ballllll. The world loves Team USA and the NBA superstars that play for the team. The games are being played in the US with US fans in attendance. And blaming the refs? Come on.
