The Team Redeems; USA back on top

It's been a while since USA men's basketball stood atop the international-competition basketball world, but on top they are now after a 118-107 win over Spain in the gold-medal game in Beijing. LeBron James said after the game that it may go down as "one of the greatest Olympic games ever." I can't wait to see it. It's been cool to see these NBA stars finally back "into" the Olympic movement. With the women taking the gold the day before, it's good to see the basketball crowns back where they rightfully belong.
