Hi again! I’m sorry for my few posts but I continue in beta version ;). Turn for the West and his classic team tonight. Los Angeles Lakers have 16 NBA championships and 31 West titles.

The country where the basketball was born. This history in addition of his demography have become to USA in the best team in the FIBA history (14 olympic gold medals in 17 appearances and also 5 World Cup championships) and with the best domestic league in the world. However the differences have been decreased 2 times. First when the college players were replaced by the professionals and we could see the best team in the sports history.

In the next tournaments the USA professional team lost the 2002 World Cup in home, the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and the 2006 World Cup in Japan. In the last years the USA team has recovered the lost prestige. What does the future hold?
