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.

I'm looking forward to Turkey 2010. But our players only talk about "2012"...

In Europe World Championship is as important as the Olympic Game.

I hope USA team stays more or less the same, but most of all that the best players keep on wanting to play for the nation... I would hate to see James or Bryant out of Turkey 2010 or London 2012.

I would like to see the Beijing 2008 team without Kidd and Redd but with additions of young guns like Bynum, Mayo, and so on.

We are on top now. But if we want to stay where we are, we have to fight harder, and keep playing with our best players.
