"Redeem Team" Win Big Over Gasol and Spain

I woke up just in time to see this rout take place this morning. I reluctantly use the term "Redeem Team" I think I'm finding out that I am the only person who hates that name but I digress.

Team USA beat up on Pau Gasol and Spain 119-82. It was an offensive barrage led by LeBron James(18 pts) and Dwyane Wade(16 pts). Carmelo Anthony also had 16 points and was big from behind the arc shooting 4-6. Michael Redd checked in to score 4.

Spain had a lot of noticable NBA players such as Pau and Marc Gasol, Rudy Fernandez, Juan Carlos Navarro, Jose Calderon, and Jorge Garbajosa. I figured it might be a good game. But even from the start Spain looked completely over matched.

I simply do not see this team losing. And I can't imagine any other country will get close. They are too talented, have great team chemistry, the right mix of players and a great coach.

I would have shown a picture, but NBC has threatend to kill my family if I put something visual from the Beijing games....just kidding NBC....but not really.
