Just now it was reported that Allen Iverson broke his thumb during the USA's loss to Puerto Rico. However, Iverson is going to play anyway. Great, Iverson already can't shoot, how bad is he going to be with a broken thumb?
I might just be reinterating what Triple Prep just said but I'll say it anyway. There is a bigger race in the East to get the final spots, but once the playoffs roll around the West will be just as competitive if not more competitive than the East.
