What a season for LeBron. LeBron’s driving dunk and a 3 point shot late in the 4th quarter secured victory for the USA over a Gasol dominated Spanish team. It will be remembered that Spain decided to box and 1 KD–not Lebron or Kobe. Melo came up empty in the Gold game but overall played well. To me it’s just a no win situation for team USA. After the near submarine job on LeBrn in game 2, we might nor ever see the NBA stars again in the Olympics.
Team USA proved some kind of point Thursday. What it was I don’t know. It was ridiculous. Olympic Basketball has turned into the NBA A Team (USA) against the B, C, and D teams in Spain, Argentina, and France. Here’s the problem: as the USA was thoroughly humiliating another opponent, LeBron had a breakaway play. As he went up for the jam, a Nigerian player pushed him from the rear. The push was gentle, no harm was done, but can you imagine if the player was angry and pushed him hard. LeBron suffering a major injury when the USA was up by 50 is unfathomable. Our players almost look bored.
The game looked like it was between the NBA Alist guys vs 1 Alister (Tony Parker) and some Blist NBA guys. The whole thing is ridiculous.
Coach K has liked Melo from Day one. Can you imagine his relationship with Carmelo is so good, Anthony has bought into being the 6th man. Melo put the USA on his back last night especially in the first half, scoring 22 and preventing Spain from getting too big of an early lead.
C’mon man!!!!!Yes the 92 team might be a favorite but no more then 5 points.
Calipari knows how it feels to play a team and be totally outmanned. A ridiculous game. Stat leaders: KD 24 points 10 rebounds Deron Williams 13 assists
