And I probably need a zoom lens.

This man from Uber really just tried to hustle me into changing his car from an UberX to a SUV Blackcar smh lol
Jaquez Johnson sounded confident today after practice that he will play against Alabama on Saturday.
This USA team content to pound it inside. Fans expect fast breaks and dunks from Americans. Maybe causing some lack of energy in arena.
Derrick Rose out there with the starters to start the second half for the USA.
Kenneth Faried is 5 for 5 at halftime and is shooting 19 of 22 at the World Cup. That's 86 percent from the field.
Faried plays every possession like he's still trying to make the team. Seems like the kind of guy who wants to be first in every drill.
USA 27, New Zealand 20 after one. Seems the Americans miss the Finland crowd. Need something to get their energy up.
Had to figure Curry's shot was going to start falling soon. Already got a couple of 3s after a 4 for 17 shooting start to the tournament.
Turkey indeed had point differential in mind, coach saying they didn't foul at the end because the 6-point margin was good for them.
Ukraine beats Turkey 64-58, now 2-1. Turkey is 1-2 but not in bad shape to advance if point differential needed by staying close in US loss.
Thank God for today
Asik is 8 of 10 from the line so far today. Form looks good. Must have worked hard at it.
Fratello alluded to that after Finland beat Ukraine the night after its beating by USA. Now locked in a tight one with Turkey.
Little scheduling bad luck for Ukraine, whose last 2 opponents had just played the USA. Game looks a lot slower the next time out.
Important day in Group C, where Turkey plays Ukraine, and Finland meets Dominican Republic. All are 1-1, fighting for 3 spots behind USA.
My father's ability to talk to randoms is amazing. He's in the hall of fame for stop-and-chatting.
I can feel your energy I can feel the energy
Simpsons Marathon...that's what my days looking like
Spain destroying Brazil after one. USA would have to score a lot to beat them, because their offense is just too good to be stopped.
If LeBron is seeing what Pau is doing to Varejao, he might ask for a rewrite to delete him from the letter.
Es tremendo jugar a 12 mil Km de Arg, y tener la sensación de q estamos jugando en casa. Gracias por el apoyo d los q están acá y los d allá
This must be Phil Jackson's bar of choice in Bilbao. http://t.co/zuds2xGwcU
Thank God for today
Fratello predicted more upsets in the Basketball World Cup on Sunday, and one right away today in Group B with Senegal beating Croatia.
US Open. http://t.co/SRWQ5L6HpK
Peace on my Mind...2 up ✌️
From Anthony Davis: "I think we didn't come ready to play in the first half and we can't afford to do that if we want to win a gold medal."
Un par de fotos de esta noche Couple of pics from tonight http://t.co/m0at4e4tpw
USA pulls away to win 98-77. Big second half for Davis and Faried was great all night to get them out of the halftime hole.
US finally safe now early in fourth with good second-half energy from Faried and Davis. Rose finally gets in up 16 with 7:41 left.
Coach K goes to Plumlee to spell Davis after Cousins' poor first half. Irving goes whole way in third while Rose sits after his.
Take away the two gold-medal games vs Spain, not much second-half trouble for US in recent years. Lithuania in '12, Brazil in '10 about all.
Davis has woken up, big start to second half. But Turkey hitting some 3s to keep the lead at 6, 7:16 left in the third.
Rose has no assists, two turnovers and is 0 for 2 in 9 minutes. Again, a lot would have to happen, but one of them is so far.
Anthony Davis, who has been the best USA player this summer, wasn't even best Pelicans big man on the floor in the first half. Asik was.
Well, well. Halftime score: Turkey 40, USA 35. Same Turkey team that was outplayed for 35 minutes by New Zealand on Saturday.
Among the tons of things that need to happen for USA to lose, Rose's rust would have to be really apparent. So far tonight it is.
USA looking ordinary on both ends in the halfcourt. Not style of game they want to play and can see a little frustration in having to.
Turkey-USA tied at 16 after one. USA fouled too much, can't get out and run when that happens, and settled for jumpers that were missing.
Asik, a non-factor yesterday, with a strong start today. Just outmuscled Davis for a three-point play, then bottled up Faried on defense.
So guess you could say the only real mistake USA made in its opener was a fashion faux pas.
USA posing again for official FIBA team pic that every team takes before its opening game because was still in sweats when they took it Sat.
Finland's coach believes the victory today over Ukraine proves that his team deserved the wild card into the Basketball World Cup.
Finland press conference ends with announcement team going to meet fans in plaza party. Slightly different ending than Pop's pressers.
Finland hangs on for its first Basketball World Cup win, beats Ukraine 81-76.
Mike Fratello's top assistant with Ukraine is Bob Hill, the former Knicks, Spurs, Pacers and Sonics coach.
Impressive flop by Finland, whose uniforms are the same colors as Duke's. Just saying.
Ukraine gets the final 13 of the third to cut Finland's lead to 57-52. Got a lot quieter in here the last three minutes.
