    Yup. That superpower in basketball NIGERIA. The whole Nigerian team probably earns less in a year than any of the USA players earn in a week

    USA 1st team is definitely better than 2nd team , when first team on the court the lead keep growing. ( almost no turn overs, much higher field goal%, great rebounds, and awesome defense forcing lots of turnovers.) As the 2nd team on court ( D Williams, RW, JH, CA, KL, and CA), just too many turnovers and poor defense, the lead stops growing and the players all on their own, no team work. Especially Kobe and Lebron, as these two guys on the court, obviously USA defense is on another level.

    USA 2nd team VS nigeria, it is hard to say whos gonna win.

  3. hey if you double Nigeria's score its usa 156 – 146 Nigeria and that sounds respectable
