Microphone check, one-two one-two.

We are gathered here today because there's actual basketball to watch. Our very own Lamar Odom will be leading the red, white and blue against... well, a different red, white and blue. The opponent is France, the game is at Madison Square Garden at 10:00 a.m. California time, and the sights and sounds can be enjoyed on ESPN2 and/or ESPN3.com. 

Boris Diaw captains the French team, which includes down-market NBA players Nicolas Batum, Ian Mahinmi and Alexis Ajinca. Sadly, Frederic Weis will not be there today to enrage Knicks fans. Just for fun and to warm you up for this game, however, there's video of Vince Carter's historic dunk on Weis after the cut.

Let's get buck nasty, y'all.
