The games on tap for this afternoon/evening involve a LOT of NBA players that you'll recognize. I think the entire Spurs franchise is playing in the current France/Argentina game, and our very own Team USA takes on Tunisia later this evening (4:15pm CT). These are all preliminary games still, but that doesn't make them any less exciting! There may not be any Dallas Mavericks playing this year (Yi Jianlian sorta counts, sorta doesn't) but that doesn't mean we can't cheer for fun FIBA-style basketball, right?! I know. The refs suck, the rules suck, it all sucks. But DUNKS, right?
