USA vs. Iran: It’s about basketball, not politics

There are political overtones in some international sporting events. You could feel it when Turkey played Greece yesterday -- then Greek fans showed up with a banner that said “We are neighbors not enemies.” It was a chance for sport to transcend the political.

Today comes USA vs. Iran, but the Iranians are looking at this as a basketball game, not a political statement.
