I'll be watching with a few beers, won't be here to talk it with you guys, i'll come here when i arrive home to congratulate you guys. Don't be too bad with me.
Aside from some chippy fouls trying to instigate I'm not sure what, Spain played a tremendous game no shame whatsoever. Huge big shots from the guards all game long or nearly, like US, and Pau was magnificent
especially considering the level of the competition. Heartbreaking loss for him and Spain as a team.
my head with the coach leaving Marc in with 3 fouls in the first half, but Pau stepped up huge in 3rd to carry them and Ibaka as well to not let US pull away with Marc stuck on bench.
Great game for US team and Laker fans with both Kobe and Pau playing so well. Nail biter but glad for us it didn't come down to last shot with chance for Kobe to try to do too much and maybe be a goat rather than hero.
Way too many fouls called for a game of this magnitude.
Felt really bad for Pau at the end. Played his guts out.....
Best BIG man in the Games 3 Olympics running....WOW!
