So, the good news: Team USA won the gold medal game today by a score of
107-100. Kevin Durant scored 30, LeBron hit a couple huge shots in the
fourth quarter, and Kobe had a solid 17 in what he claims will be his
last-ever Olympic game. The game was choppy due to a near-unthinkable
number of foul calls, and Spain kept things tight with some hot shooting
in the first half and an incredible third-quarter run from big man Pau
Gasol, but Team USA pulled away late in the fourth, winning gold for the
second straight olympics, and ending Mike Krzyzewski's Olympic coaching
career at a fairly respectable 62-1.
But the bad news: Once again, the gold was won without a 76er on the
We thought we'd finally get to call a gold for one of our
own with Andre Iguodala's inclusion on the team this year, but with his
trade to the Nuggets before the semi-final game on Friday, we are again
representation-less at the conclusion of the Summer Games. The Sixers
have still yet to have a current pro player on a Gold-winning
team—Charles Barkley was traded to Phoenix just months before the '92
Dream Team won top honors, and in Allen Iverson's '04 campaign, the
squad lost to Argentina and took home the bronze.
Nonetheless, congrats to our national team—yes, even you, LeBron (don't
get used to it)—especially to our old guy Andre Iguodala, who played
sparse minutes and registered a rebound in the climactic game.
here's hoping that by 2016, our new guy Andrew Bynum has allayed any
maturity concerns and will be a no-brainer inclusion on the next
Dream/Redeem/Sour Cream/whatever team. And that, y'know, he's still on
the Sixers on that point.
