Olympians Seem Ready To Go

Who'd have thunk two
Washington Wizards would have been invited to the Olympic tryouts?
there they are, Gilbert Arenas and Antawn Jamison, who surprised us a bit by
saying this: "I've got so much respect for [Coach K]. Next to Coach [Dean]
Smith, I think he's one of the best college basketball coaches ever. I have
nothing but the utmost respect for him and I think it's going to be fun. For us,
it's about putting USA Basketball back on the map and it's about winning."

So far, everyone
seems pretty happy
with the direction things are going - even
Chris "Ru" Paul.

Paul has taken some notable shots at Duke lately, so playing for Coach K and
with a couple of Dukies should be interesting.
