U.S. Is Up to Its High-Tops in Olympic Hoopla

We will be left behind in a sport we perfected if we don't field a national basketball team--one that is used to playing together under pressure and with a coach the players are familiar with.

The Olympics are games of professionals now, and it is time for us to wake up and get with it.
