Too bad Montenegro didn't get their bronze in the water polo, very heated match up.

Love how the Serbian and Croatian sides aren't even looking at each other.

Lebron is a special case.

Read what I wrote carefully. Yes, they won gold but the Dream Team nonsense needs to stop.

Let's call it like it is, Spain are a fantastic team and played a great game, the US is the best basketball nation in the world and won a deserved gold medal.

Kobe was saying that. Was more of a publicity thing to spark some debate.

That's such garbage Har-Tru.

I just wish to God someone on Team USA has called out the Spanish team for it's lack of integrity in this Olympics. And their endless flopping.

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.

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..

Can't complain overall the Olympics were positive. Montenegro, Brazil and Sweden losing today won't change. Sweden never expected to win but Brazil losing the volleyball that one is going to sting so much. Montenegro as well.

That is pretty good. It'd be like my state South Carolina(roughly 4.5 mil people) getting golds.

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.
