Looks like the golden years of USA Basketball is back once again. After having several losses in previous years international competitions (including the disappointing bronze finish in the 2K4 Athens Olympics) the Dream (or Redeem) Team has finally taken the throne once again as they beat Spain 118-107 in a high scoring game (the most for both teams in the tournament) while they kept an unbeaten 8-0 record, and win the Gold back…. as promised.

Dwayne Wade led five Americans in double-digit number with 27, while Kobe Bryant had a 20 point (13 in the fourth quarter) game.

On the other hand, the girls of USA’s basketball team (defending champions) won their fourth consecutive Olympic women’s basketball gold medal last Saturday, beating Australia (for the third time since the 2000 Olympics) in a whopping 92-65 victory.

So what can I say???? USA !!!!!!!

3 Critical:

  1. Redemption – and redemption indeed is the word as they prove to the world once again… that they (USA) are the King’s and Queen’s of Basketball.
  2. The Saying – “they believe, therefore they did” I think is the right quote for the whole thing. They’ve been doubted in the past few years, but now… the dream is back.
  3. The Best? – I’ll be a little controversial this time. What would you say if I tell you this is the best Dream Team ever? .. I guess they are.
