They don't deserve to be called one. I would agree that it's more a case of the rest of the world improving than us deproving though.

I agree. I watched some '92 games recently. Even in '92, the US had tough stretches where they were forced into a slow paced half court game. And they sometimes didn't look good there. But the opposition couldn't keep them at bay for 40 minutes (which Greece was able to do in 2006), as the US was superior in terms of athletic ability. They would only need two five-minutes-stretches, in which Magic, MJ, Sir Charles, Pippen would run the fastbreak and put 20 points between themselves and the opposition.Originally Posted by Mightytoo
Now that doesn't mean it is only the opposition that has changed. The '92-team had such smart, experienced players like Magic and Bird as team leaders. Can't compare that to '06.
I gotta question: Are Amare, Marion and Arenas still able to be on the team, even though they didnt play in the WBC06?

Of course USA can win the WC anytime. They always have the best chances to win the tournaments. Anybody saying NO is a moron.
The U.S. can bring whoever they desire.
The results are always to be noted on court. Once they appear ready and well-organized to win and given their talent superiority (I never doubted that they are the best team, talent-wise), they will win a world tournament again.
But, the question that refers to the organization momentum is yet to be answered, so let's wait for a while (once again..).
