Seems like, at the very least, he's going to have to bulk up and probably learn to develop a higher release point on that jump shot.

Ha, in all seriousness, I've been following the tournament pretty closely. I love international basketball, if only because I like watching Team USA curbstomp all challengers. It's actually good basketball, believe it or not, maybe not in terms of competition, but in terms of fundamentals and team play. The only Team USA player who can be described as playing a bit selfishly is James Harden, and even he is dishing out some assists and playing defense.

As for Spain, as much as I enjoy being right about them, a part of me wishes that we would have gotten a USA-Spain final. Everyone was talking about this potential match-up before the tournament and it looks like Spain was looking too far ahead to facing the Americans and forgot all about the stout Frenchmen in front of them (Boris Diaw did Boris Diaw things while Rudy Gobert and Thomas Heurtel stepped up big).

Among the 3 remaining teams besides the USA, France looks like the best team on paper. Serbia has Miloš Teodosić, who's pretty damn clutch (hit that dagger 30-footer against Spain in the 2010 quarterfinals), but he's just one man. Lithuania has some quality bigs and they always play Team USA pretty tough, but their backcourt can be exploited. I'm banking on a USA-France final.

EDIT: USA dominated Lithuania to get to the final. Rather chippy game and Boogie Cousins finally lost his cool, although he had good reason to since one of the Lithuanians elbowed him right in the neck.

And as expected, Team USA blows out Serbia for the gold.  Kyrie just went nuts, shooting 6-for-6 from 3.  America's C-team isn't so bad.
