Team USA: Redemption Complete

Monday, August 25, 2008 , Posted by dAVe at 9:19 AM

Perhaps one of the hardest fought gold medal fight in the history of men's basketball in the Olympics, USA takes the gold medal and supremacy with a 118-107. Spain didn't hand over the game without a fight, a good fight at that. The game was close all the way although the Americans stayed ahead most of the game.

Lebron James and crowd favorite Kobe Bryant had quick two fouls in the first quarter making way for the early entry of Deron Williams and revitalized Dwyane Wade. Wade errupted for 21 points in the first half. Kobe Bryant proved once again that he plays even bigger when the game is on the line. He poured 13 his 20 points and had two crucial assists in the fourth.

Congrats to team USA. Spain and defending champion Argentina settled for silver and bronze medal respectively.
