    Sep 8, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    It’s not the size of the test — although this will be a pretty good one for the USA — it’s the consequences of failure. This is the round of eight — lose and go home. Early. Hearing from the home front about the failings of the youngsters of USA Basketball. Just like the Spanish…

    Sep 8, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    I am loathe to put anything from “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” on this site, but FIBA is really being restrictive with use of its video and nobody is slipping me good stuff from the set of Transformers 3. Besides, this just made me laugh. Lamar Odom is one awkward dude at times. And you…
