Good morning again! Here's a thread for today's Olympic basketball action, which includes all four three Olympic Knicks. Well, it should, but it might actually exclude one. Here's a bit of breaking news:

Breaking news in Argentina. Pablo Prigioni out of the line-up today to face Tunisia with renal colic. Had intense pain during Weds practice

"Renal colic", I think, means Pablo has kidney stones, which must be miserable. Poor Pablo. May you ditch those stones as promptly and painlessly as possible and return to spreading ¡Pablocura! very soon.

With or without Prigioni and Prigioni's kidnioni stonionis, Argentina plays Tunisia at 9:30 EST. After that, it'll be Brazil-Russia at 11:45 AM , Spain-Great Britain at 3:00 PM, and, finally, the United Knicks of America vs. Nigeria at 5:15 PM (I bolded it so you'd really know). Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony and their kidneys are, as far as we know, healthy (Chandler's hand should be fine) and ready to go. Stay healthy, y'all. Beware of hard fouls, meddlesome rims, and stones that want to climb into your kidneys. Go Knicks!
