USA-Iran Open Thread

That's Hamed Haddadi up there, blocking Andrew Bynum's shot. H2 plays for the Iranian national team, which is scheduled to get crushed by Team USA this morning. The game's on ESPN at 9:00 California time.

No one's too jazzed about how the Americans looked against Brazil the other day, but whatevs. Team USA is 3-0 in round play so far and need only take care of Iran and Tunisia to get to the knockout round undefeated. Those two are a combined 1-5, so I'm liking the odds of that happening.

In slightly more exciting news, only 33 days until the Lakers' first preseason game!
