    “…we should take it more seriously, because you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. In this movie, everything seemed nice with our team and our relationship and our country and in one second, everything went upside down. It was a lot of manipulations, a lot of politics.

    Aug 27, 2010, 12:00 PM EST

    In the World Cup, the toughest group of four drawn gets the moniker “Group of Death” because some quality team is not going to be advancing to the final 16. If there were a Group of Death for the FIBA World Championships, it would be Group B. The USA’s group. Except that it really doesn’t…
