London Olympics: TeamUSA takes Gold over Spain!

Added James: “It’s all about the USA. It’s about the three letters on the chest.”

“A bunch of individuals came together as a team,” Knicks big man Tyson Chandler said. “You can’t beat this Spain team as individuals because they’re not. They’re incredible. We showed tonight we’re not just individuals. We’re a great basketball team.” – nypost

“I was one of those kids that looked back on the 1992 team and said ‘that is where I want to be,'” Anthony said. “And 20 years on, I am here winning the gold medal.” – nypost
