Kobe counted them when it counts the most....first +20pt game Kobe has in the olympics.

I love it when they mentioned Kobe flashing his NBA MVP form...which is exactly what he did in today's game to help blow the game wide open from the 3rd.

Great game. The Argentina vs. Greece that is. That Delfino guy was crazy in the second half. But the defense of the Greece managed to keep the game close. But in the end, it's US vs. Argentina.

GINOBILI!

Yes! that was a hard fought game. Fighting all the way for the win. The best parts were when their "baby shaq" came in. I tought the three at the end was too quick, but they left him open. And who wants to nominate argentina's jersey as one of the worst?lol

Anyways, great win for USA. Good thing they started playing D after the 1st quarter. 25 for our Kobe.

Saw the games on replay.

that game was so ragged but fun to watch. ginobili and delfino were on fire, i think greece could've done better than a pull up 3 to win the game.


as for the U.S. they really need to start making their freethrows! :rock:

Yah I thought they could be going into the paint to draw a foul or make a 2 to tie the game...they know they can't win if going into OT?

Yah...their FTs are horrendous, something to do with the distance from the FT line???
