US Olympic Basketball: Part 1 of the Journey

The Men's basketball team has started off with a hint of hot coal underneath their bellies. They easily beat the Canadians and Lithuanians. In the match against the Lithuanians, Kobe had to avenge his previous encounter with Sarunas Jasikevicius - who massacred the US team last time due to superior perimeter offense(7 3-pointers last Olympics total of 28 points in the game). However, Kobe playing an adequate amount of offense with some excellent in-your-face defense slowed down the international three point superstar. Kobe, Dwight, LeBron, and Wade won in a great collaborative effort. US won 120-84. Hopefully, the success continues on for Team America.
