Apparently, Jelly Bean Jr. knows what it takes for the US to eventually win the gold. "The U.S. basketball team will have to work on its internal chemistry if it wants to perform well at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing" according to Coach Kobe Bryant. _________________________________________________________
Bryant, 27, told a news conference in Taipei that a newly assembled team always needed some time together before starting to play with consistency."Years playing together will jell us as a unit, [but] if there is no chemistry,it's going to be tough to beat all those talented teams," he said. Bryant said he was confident the two years up to the Beijing Olympics would be enough to find that chemistry. (INFO)
I guess he has all the damn answers. Maybe they should have let him coach this year's squad and let Coach "K" (the REAL coach "K") chill this summer. I don't think the team will have any better chemistry with him in '08.
