Sports » NBA-style basketball flops on Athens stage
Aug 28, 2004


David Stern came to town to watch this one. He came to watch the best his league could scrape together — from among the few NBA players who care about their image and reputation in the world — take on Argentina with a chance to advance to the Olympic gold-medal game.
I won't even waste electrons transmitting the full irony of the situation. The NBA needed to beat Argentina, which hadn't been seen on the international stage since it lost the epic battle for the Falkland Islands. That's Argentina, the setting of a really swell musical but not the first name that pops into your mind when someone asks you to name the world's leading basketball powers.
