#KingJames scored 30 points and helped #TeamUSA rally over Brazil, 80-69 last night! #TeamUSA was down 10 points after the first quarter, but kept Brazil to five points in the pivotal second quarter! #KingJames scored 14 points in the final quarter after only being up by seven points with 4 1/2 minutes remaining! Now it is on to #London2012Olympics for #TeamUSA!
“You have dreams about being in the NBA. You have dreams about making the game-winning shot at the buzzer. You never have dreams about having the president actually watching you play, because you don’t think it’s possible,” Lebron said. “It’s definitely humbling, to see him here, the first lady and their kids here to watch us play. Really, it’s amazing.” – espn
“Obviously the talent that we’ve got at this point is unbelievable,” Obama said during a halftime interview on ESPN2. “So there’s no reason that we shouldn’t bring home the gold. We just have to stay focused.” – espn
#Obama, first lady Michelle, and his daughter Malia (+ Vice President Joe Biden) took front row seats to the exhibition game, and rooted for #TeamUSA! Chants of “U-S-A” surrounded the Prez and his fam, as Bruce Springsteen “Born in the USA” blared through the speakers!
“This is a generational thing,” Obama said during a halftime interview with ESPN2 as it broadcast an exhibition game Monday night with Brazil at Washington’s Verizon Center. “I was around in ’92, I was a Bulls fan, so I’ve got to go with the original Dream Team.”
“I suspect that Michael and ‘Sir Charles’ and others would point out they were probably never down at any point in any of their games,” Obama said. “But this is a great team, unbelievable talent.” – espn
#Obama picked #92DreamTeam over #2012TeamUSA in the #Kobe debate! He said its a “generational thing”.
