Guessing Game, Updated!

>We picked up on some of the ideas being kicked around on the bulletin board
and incorporated some names into our guessing games list for the Olympic team

We are to a certain extent building with the notion that Greg Oden will be
part of the team. He has the potential to change the game. The last
guy to really do that was Michael Jordan.

Oden can defend an enormous amount of space by himself, being essentially a
one man zone in the lane. That would allow for pitbull perimeter defense
and would really change the formula not just for the Americans but for the rest
as well, because the normal thing is to either dribble penetrate or pass around
for an open three. If you can't penetrate, you have no choice but to play
for the three. And if you have Tayshaun Prince, Shane Battier, Ron Artest
and Kobe Bryant dogging your every step, the threes aren't so easy either.
