Hoops Gold

The United States Men’s Basketball team who went undefeated finally achieved its goal when they bagged the gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics that eluded them in international competition for eight long years.

The NBA- backed powerhouse team led by league MVP Kobe Bryant steamrolled over their opponents by beating their opponents by an average of 30 points in the early goings of the tournament but had to put an extra effort to subdue a game and tough Spanish team 118- 107 for the coveted championship.

Thus, USA Basketball regained its rightful status and to quote Carmelo Anthony, “on top of the world!”
