Basketball Betting Olympic Universe had the US as its center or attention. The country consistently produced the best players in the Olympic sports betting and the basketball betting Olympic Games were no exception. However, all that has changed and the balance of basketball betting Olympic power has shifted and now the US is struggling to keep up with new emerging powers in the Olympic sports betting action on the hard court.
Basketball betting Olympic enthusiasts were shocked in the late 1990s when foreign country began to threaten eventually over take the teams sent by the US to the most recent basketball betting Olympic competitions. Olympic sports betting in Sydney was a real wake up and a precursor of the basketball betting Olympic Games to come in Athens. Athens was a complete disaster for Team USA and the Americans loss in the basketball betting Olympic action there sent the program into a panic.
There is no question among the many basketball betting Olympic fans, that the US has the best players. LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade…there will be no players on the foreign rosters in the basketball betting Olympic competition that can come close to matching their talents. Yet even this gap in talent is not as wide as it used to be and foreign NBA players like Manu Ginobli, Dirk Nowitski, Tony Parker and Yao Ming will all be present in Beijing to try and derail the basketball betting Olympic hopes of the US.
But the problem is style of play in the NBA, which is much less efficient than what will be on display in the basketball betting Olympic Games. The extra passes, the jump shots, the solid defense, these are all things lacking in the NBA but the essential elements needed to win the basketball betting Olympic competition. The one-on-one, isolation style of play that rule the NBA will be Team USA’s undoing in the Olympic sports betting and it’s very likely the US squad will return form the basketball betting Olympic adventure in Beijing greatly disappointed…yet again.
