Kevin Durant and the rest of the USA basketball team, much maligned for their early lack of cohesive play, have reached the FIBA World Basketball Championship finals and will take on Turkey later today. Turkey, led by NBA star Hedo Turkoglu, are playing in front of a home crowd, as the games are being played in Istanbul.
Breaking down the game, the USA team should not lose to Turkey; although Turkoglu is by all rights an NBA star, one NBA player is not enough to beat another team with an entire roster of NBA players. But what the US team has to be wary of is that the international game is not like the NBA, and that means that Turkey does not just hand the ball to Turkoglu every time down the court and clear out. They play a motion team offense, with Turkoglu working within the offense to find his shot. Occasionally, Turkoglu will bring the ball up court, but he’s not actually running the point.
The US team should use Kevin Durant in the same manner, because there is a lot more scoring on the the USA team than Turkey’s team, and even if Turkey tries to stop Durant, the US team should be able to find buckets in other places.

Getting things done on the road is a real problem for anyone who covers or follows sports closely, because there is a lot of road travel that is involved. It’s not easy to be able to work remotely, but it is essential if we want to be able to work seamlessly regardless of where we are in the world. Another factor is for IT personnel who need to be able to access a computer no matter where it is. The way to accomplish this is by using remote control software, which allows you to control a computer just as if you were sitting in front of it. You should take into consideration how secure the connection between you and the computer you intend to access, and Proxy Networks’ product, Proxy Pro 7, uses 256-bit encryption – the highest in its class. The service is ideal if you have multiple computers that you need to access, as it can handle many target PCs, limit access to IP addresses, and constantly polls the available computers to tell you which ones are available. These are all critical functions for someone trying to manage a PC or a group of PCs from afar.
For people who need to have a custom authorization process, Proxy Networks allows that as well.
