I honestly have never believed you are a real person.
I'm not saying the calls favored Spain. Fouls and FTs were even, I just think the refs should let the teams play in the gold medal game, and if they had it would have helped the US And the US got called for a ton of travels this tournament. Part of the adjustment from NBA to International ball.
Spain certainly played well, take nothing away from them.
I don't think the refs made any unfair calls. I'm in favour of calling violations of the rules, as many or as few as they are, period.
And the game was very high-paced. A 107-100 score in a 40 minutes game... that would be like 128-119 in a 48-minutes NBA game, which would be a very unusual score, especially in a decisive game.
In Basketball? We did not qualify;
overall 6 medals;
3 golds (womens discuss, water-polo, shooting), 1 silver (rowing), 2 bronze (Handball, Taekwondo)
Our best Olympics so far, not bad for a population of 4.5 mil people;
Shame for the sailing disappontments (4th, 5th and 6th, all were faves) and the womens handball team..
