He's so high 

OK. This whole American 'dream team' really goes counter to everything I cherish about the Olympics. In 1989 there was a rule change that allowed USA Basketball to field teams with professional players. Jordan,Barkley, Bird...And of course they won the gold medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain (although it hasn't worked for them since).

But it does allow the totally crushable Yao Ming to play for China, against the Americans. The game is so close right now, halfway through the second quarter. So suck it US.

UPDATE: US took it 101-70 but it was a close game, for the most part.
