Did anyone watch this tournament? Wow, it was truly a joy watching this team play basketball. A complete 180 degree turnaround from the type of ball the National Team has played in the last two Olympics.

Adding Jason Kidd was huge.

Adding shooters like the deadly Michael Redd and Mike Miller was key.

And of course, still the best--IMO--backcourt player in the world: Kobe Bryant. This is the first time Kobe has played for the National Team. He is amazing.

This team will win the Gold medal in 2008.
