Three Interesting Boozer / Team USA Stats

Team USA did battle with the mighty Aussies (sans Bogut) yesterday and eeked out a win. But three stats loom "large and in charge" for Jazz fans.
1) Carlos Boozer Minutes - 0!
2) Other Team USA Players Who Did Not Play - 0!
3) Other Team USA Players Who Played for Coach K at Duke - 0!

I've been surprised that there has been so little talk about the fact the USA struggled to beat Australia, without Bogut. If they play like that against a legit squad (Spain, Argentina, Greece) they will get blown out.

And Kidd is not the answer. That guy looks finished.

The fact is that Spain has MUCH more talent than Australia (7 players with NBA careers / future careers) and they execute execute execute!!!! If the US plays like they did against Australia, they will lose. But on the bright side, it doesn't look like boozer will get injured.

I don't know -- he's pretty injury prone. And the walk from the bench to the locker room is a long one. . . anything can happen.

I'm glad to see people coming around to the "Jason Kidd Sucks" theory (law?) I've been throwing out there. With Paul and Williams on the team, he should be sitting next to the Booze on the pine.

Jason Kidd was a phenomenal basketball player. But from what I've seen this summer (limited) he has lost a leap or two.

I can't wait until the U.S. plays Spain, a team with perhaps the goofiest bunch of good basketball players ever collected. I am already collecting great photos of the Spanish team for an epic post. What a bunch of payasos.
