Still, fantastic game, though. I didn't think it would be nearly as close as it was, but Spain played exceptional today. If Rubio can develop a jump shot, he will be an NBA All-Star (I'm still not sold on Marc Gasol, though.).
Greece dont have a single NBA player and I really believe they could have given the US a tough game too.Forget the group game,look at spain in the group stages compared to the final.Plus I wasn't speaking about the NBA V the rest but the USA v the rest regardless of where they play.
