Oh, say does the star spangled banner yet wave! Team USA took the gold against the final contender which was Spain. They’ve came a long way with one of the best line-ups seen in the Olympics in awhile. It was a great race towards the gold and it was definitely worth it. Team USA won by 11 (118-107). The match against Spain wasn’t as elementary as they would’ve hoped but it still didn’t road block the way to the main prize.

LeBron James scored 17 points and 7 rebounds in the final game against Spain. James also felt that this game was historical in its own way:

“That’ll probably go down as one of the greatest Olympic games ever,” James said. “If it wasn’t for the determination and willpower we had, we wouldn’t be back on top of the world, which is where we are.”

Carmelo Anthony put 13 points on the board. Chris Paul aka CP3 finished with 13 points and 5 assists. Kobe Bryant threw up 20 points and 6 assists. K.B. not only finished with gold but also humility:

“What you saw today was a team bonding together, facing adversity and coming out with a huge win,” Bryant said.

I, myself, am very proud of Team USA of being the gold home and they’ve done a spectacular job. They all deserve this win. There is more photos + video below.
