VINCE'S BACK

The man who leaped tall opponents at the 2000 Games is back in red, white and blue. That's right: Vince Carter will replace the injured Kobe Bryant on the U.S. roster for the Olympic qualifying tournament in Puerto Rico.


Yeah, that's the ONLY reason why Kobe is not on the team; because he's injured ... sure.

The bigger joke is that Vince Carter is on the team. What has he done the past 2 seasons except be injured and have his team achieve its only success when he was not playing?

Well maybe they figure if they keep Vince on the bench that, like the Raptors, they will have a better chance of winning.

Well, he did dunk over that French guy. But that's about it.

Amazing how the US can tell more than a year ahead of time that Kobe will be injured for the 2004 Olympics. I wish I had their crystal ball.

Actually, Kobe is only officially out of the qualifying tournament. Assuming that the US qualifies, Kobe will play in the Olympics, unless of course he is starring in his own version of Oz.

You can almost predict which pro athlete this will happen to next just based on the level of on/off-field knuckle-headed-ness they display during their playing days. Crazy.
