USA Men’s National Basketball Team Captures Gold at 2016 Rio Games

The USA Men’s National Basketball Team will bring home the gold from Rio De Janerio, Brazil as they defeated Serbia easily 96-66, in the 2016 installment of the Olympic Games.

The Gold Medal for the USA Men didn’t come without its own difficulty. The USA went through a stretch  winning 3 games in pool play by only 16 points, after handling the preliminary round fairly easy.


Kevin Durant led the way for Team USA in the Gold Medal Game ( I just wish he had done the same in the Western Conference Finals vs the Warriors.) 

Carmelo Anthony announced his retirement from International play after the game finale, this Olympic game seen Anthony capture his 4 medal overall, and 3rd straight Gold Medal.

The debate of NBA Championship vs Gold Medal will be handled in another post, after comments made by Carmelo Anthony and De’Andre Jordan.

Team USA started slow, in the game before opening the game wide open in the 3rd Quarter.

Team USA recently played Serbia 2 weeks ago from this Friday and it was clear Coach K didn’t  want the same slim margin of victory this go around from the Serbs.

Big Congratulations to the US Men’s National Basketball Team.
