I don't disrespect the team that are on the court now - winning or losing.

I do disrespect the large number of superstars in the NBA that aren't representing the US in these Olympic qualifiers.

The US has the potential for another "Dream Team" like team with it's plethora of stars but they're just sitting at home.

i agree with the previous comment. if their best players keep missing these events, of course the 92,s Barcelona Dream Team days are gone. in fact, they disrespect their fans by doing that. i don,t know if it,s arrogance or vanity, but it,s not pretty.

i,m not saying it,s possible to match the quality of that 92,s Dream Team, but every year, USA is always able to at least get close to that...

i just hope that next year we can see the real American basketball team playing in Tokyo.

Geee, Thanks Kobe.

Keep living in the past.

Did you get tired of talking about your "Kobe-Shaq feud" from 15 years ago? Or are you getting bored about posting Instagram pics about your SEVEN YEAR OLD girl's basketball team taking fourth place with disdain. Now we are talking about how 2019 basketball is not 1992 basketball?

Instead of all this criticism, why don't you get in there, volunteer and help guide the young players to become better? Anyone can say these things on social media. Go out there and show them how it's done..........Black Mamba............

Kobe helped lot of young Chinese and some East Asian boys back in late 90s until his retirement.

He is one of the most fascinating sportsman of his generation whixh is why he became a legend, so can't deny that, however it's better to have quiet life away from the media.

Kobe is part of the media now. Heck, he even has a show on ESPN:
