TEAM KOBE BRINGS HOME THE GOLD

It was close, it was a nail biter, but in the end…U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! Kobe Bryant, taking over in the fourth quarter and finishing the game off with 20 points and 6 assists and a HUGE 4-point play. Let’s not forget to give props to Spain.  Not only did they fair better than the last time they played the US, but I think they’ve also made people forget the infamous “slanted eyes” photo.  After getting blown away by 37 points the first time these two met, Spain hung on for as long as they could before running out of gas and losing by 11. I’m not sure if it’s better than winning the NBA Title but at least it lasts for 4 years instead of NBA’s 1. Plus, you can honestly claim the title “World Champs.”  I’m still wondering what the role of Carlos Boozer was in this game?

  1. Now that the Gold Metal has come back to the U.S., the debate begins, who is better team: The 1992 Dream Team or this years Redeem Team? You decide. 🙂
