Previously, in the LiveBlog which I wrote last night at 2:30 in the morning, I stated that Chris Paul was not on the 2006 FIBA squad, when in fact he was. I also stated that Stephon Marbury was on that squad, and he was not.
Consequently, I used this as a logical reason to suggest that Team USA would be able to handle the trap. Not only was I wrong about the roster, but seeing as how Chris Paul has not improved an iota, it’s clear that Team USA will be swept off the face of the Olympics by the overpowering juggernaut that is Team Greece.
Hardwood Paroxysm would like to apologize for the error.
Oh, and once in fifth grade, I indicated that my slammer pog was superior to that of Kevin Hinkle’s slammer pog. This was later proved false. I should have known better when I saw “Made in Greece” on the back of the slammer.
Hardwood Paroxysm also apologizes for that error.
Wait, also, my sophomore year of college, I informed a young lady that it was an odd coincidence that I had acquired tickets to a concert of a band I know she loved on the same night she was scheduled to attend a date with another gentleman. That was incorrect, as I knew full well. I should have known that was incorrect, as I had a gyro for lunch that day.
Finally, it has come to my attention that I actually give a damn about international competition, or really any competition outside of the spoiled, ego-centric, passionless game of the NBA. That is obviously false.
