    As you can see he's the only one not to let Coach K wear his medal for the group celebration picture. Is it me or is Chris Paul not happy? :cheers:

    The coaches don't get medals. Coach K deserves one, that's for sure. Larry Brown deserved a lump of coal in 2004. I will say, however, that LB was at a disadvantage in that there was very little prep time for that 2004 team.

    LB did lay an egg in '04, but K also lost in '06 at the worlds, despite already having an improved roster as compared to two years earlier. The rest of the world has caught up enough to the point that having an ideal roster and some real prep time together is, apparently, absolutely necessary for the US to win these tournaments. Even the best possible roster won't be good enough if it's just thrown together.

    As I think I've said before (though maybe not in a while), USA basketball from this point on will probably be like Brazil in soccer, at the World Cup. Brazil always has an extraordinary array of talent, stars or megastars at just about every position, but they don't always win it, even though they do win more often than any other country. Their talent is not so overwhelming that it can overcome all team-wide issues of chemistry, familiarity, etc.

    I think Tay is a little upset about his lack of PT.

    I think that's his 3MP digital camera with the 1.5" LCD.

    There are soooo many things wrong with this picture.

    Tay is the only one speaking, he looks like he's yelling at the photographer

    Why is he holding a camera in a team picture?

    Why does the photographer look like he's taking a picture of everyone, but
    Tay? No way Tay is fitting in that camera angle.

    Why is CP staring down Tay?

    And why is he the only one wearing his medal?

    The cameraman looks like he is taking a closeup of Coach K with all the medals. Did they just drape them around his neck? And Tay was too far away to reach him? That's why Paul is not looking at the camera either.

    OK before all of the good captions are taken, let me add mine;

    Tay is saying :"wait let me give coach K my medal too!!" or "here take a picture with my camera too when you are done!!"

    Carmelo is looking at some hottie in the stands :)

    Looks like Lebron has just finished biting a couple of nails and is looking for a place to spit them out.

    Micheal Redd is telling the cameraman that he didn't break a sweat the whole two week, but he still deserves a medal...Chris Paul is saying you B-essing man..with his eyes...

    The rest of the players are looking at the other cameraman >Doug Collins taking a picture

    You can't tell in this picture, but Dwight Howard kept his medal on, too. I noticed during replays that Tay and Dwight didn't put them on Coach K. I also noticed that Prince's camera looked old because it was so big. I mean, he's got big hands. If it looks big in them, then it must be huge. Doesn't he make enough to buy a new camera?

    If it works, why buy a new one? I applaud Tayshaun's fiscal discipline!

    No renting medals, no buying new gadgets!
