Cry for ME, Argentina, because I don't have NBA TV. If I did I'd be able to watch Team USA's game against the Argentines which it actually happens, at 12:30 p.m. California time. Since I don't, I have to wait until the rebroadcast on ESPN2 at 9:00 p.m. I'm a little annoyed by the situation.

But enough about my cable TV package. The game's in Barcelona and will be Team USA's second-to-last tuneup before the Olympics start. Argentina, as you're probably aware, has a very respectable hoops tradition. They medaled both in Beijing in 2008 (bronze) and Athens in 2004 (gold). This time around they're considered a step below the United States and Spain but they're well coached and have some talent. You'll recognize Luis Scola, Carlos Delfino and of course the great Manu Ginobili. They'll be a nice test for the red, white and blue.
