When it comes to basketball in the Olympics, all the attention is on the U.S. … and for good reason. I mean, Kobe, King James, D. Wade, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony … need I say more? Now there’s another squad in the world that’s stealing all that attention, but for all the wrong reasons.

I’m talking about Spain and its team picture that hit the net yesterday, stirring up outrage.

Before the Olympic Games even began, all 15 members of Spain’s hoops team – including the Lakers’ Pau Gasol and Raptors’ Jose Calderon – took a team portrait, in which they’re all shown slanting their eyes, while flashing smiles.

After being booed to death by the Beijing crowd, this idiot Calderon offered this to say about the picture:

“We thought it was something appropriate and that it would always be interpreted as somewhat loving. From here I would like to declare that we have a huge respect for the East and their people, some of my best friends in Toronto are from China."

Is this guy an idiot or what!? This picture is way more worse than when Shaq told a reporter, “Tell Yao Ming, ‘ching-chong-yang-wah-ah-soh.’”

Making the matter worst is the fact that this Spain team is sponsored by Li Ning, A CHINESE BRAND! Wow! Ya’ll about to lose a deal.

The slant-eyed gesture has been around for a long, long time and is a direct way to offend a Chinese – or any Asian – person. These cats had to know what they were doing, when taking this picture. They can’t be that stupid!

I guess these Spaniards don’t know how gully the Triads are. They'll cut off and leave your nutsack in Chinatown real quick. Then try playing basketball, Pau!

I think Yao Ming should holla at his homies and set up a photo shoot for Spain. Yea, the Chinese team should pose as Flamenco dancers. There ain’t nothing hood or scary about f**king Flamenco. Sissy-ass Flamenco, lol.

But in all seriousness, whether you’re Asian or not – HOW OFFENSIVE DO YOU FIND THIS PICTURE OF SPAIN’S BASKETBALL TEAM?

In my opinion they are fuking mindless peasants, very disrespectful and ballsy. I would be crapping my undies that Yamamoto or Saku would do unreversible damage to me.

How good is your life that you allow yourself to get outraged at a bunch of basketball players making funny faces at another team. Who cares?

Basketball is boring and the olympics are boring.

Okay lets put this in perspective people what if the team painted there faces up like Sambo. Would it be okay then just want to know your opinion. I actually cant stand when people do that because when I was younger you could actually tell I was half Asian. you cant now. And people did that to me all the fucking time. It gets old and it is totally annoying, plus they are having fun at another's expense. JMO though

It's very hard to offend me so my view of life is kind of skewed. As hard as I had it growing up dirt poor in an abusive household, I've seen a little too much of life to worry about someone making a racial connotation about another person.

What one person says about another person isn't really a concern to me.

My wife is Native American and we moved out of our county for 2 years when I went out of town for business for those 2 years. We went from living in a majority Native American population to an area where most had never even seen a real Native American. Most people thought she was Mexican and would routinely speak openly in front of her because they thought she was Mexican and knew no English. You'd be surprised at how vile people are when they think no one is listening.

I don't like people in general very much so I say fuck em' in general. Not you though, you're pretty cool.

Gully, LOL i havent heard that word since high school, what a stupid blog, what a stupid writer. Somebody should slap this guy for calling Calderon an idiot. Calderon is the fucking man, will be one of the best PG's in the NBA in the next couple of seasons, i may be biased but i love Calderoni. Calderoni FTW. Fuck the bloggers
