Beware of Greeks Bearing Picks


The highly touted U.S. basketball team, loaded with highly touted NBA stars, lost in the World Basketball Championships to Greece last night. Greece has no NBA players on its roster, but apparently it does have players who know how to run an exotic play called "pick and roll," and burned the U.S. defense for 101 points.

Memphians hoping for a "Shane vs. Pau" final will have to wait for a Rockets/Grizzlies game to see that matchup. To read the whole sorry Greek tragedy, go here.
