Who do you think is taking what?

08-22-2008, 12:17 PM
In men's: Gold for USA, Silver for Spain, Bronze for Lithuania.

08-22-2008, 12:19 PM
USA will most likely take the Gold
that leaves Spain with the Silver
I hate to say it, but I'm going with Argentina for the bronze

08-22-2008, 12:21 PM
poll is up now. had some errors while posting it heh. lithuania is tough, but i favor argentina. them and spain have my other 2 fav teams after usa because they have a lot of nba talent.

spain i like rubio, gasols, they have a couple other guys.
argent: noc, scola, manu.

08-22-2008, 12:23 PM
haha imagine USA loosing it. Scandal.

08-22-2008, 12:25 PM
haha imagine USA loosing it. Scandal.

especially after blowing them away last game.

08-22-2008, 12:29 PM
U.S. wins the Gold
Spain gets the Silver
Argentina gets the Bronze

08-22-2008, 12:29 PM
spain i like rubio, gasols, they have a couple other guys.
argent: noc, scola, manu.

Too many injuries for that team to compete.

08-22-2008, 12:31 PM
i wasnt aware that noc was injured? that sux bulls need him.

gold - usa by 20+
silver - spain -^
bronze - argentina - by 2-6

08-22-2008, 12:33 PM
i think argentina will still take bronze even with the injuries.

08-22-2008, 12:47 PM
An injured Manu helps the Lithuanian cause greatly.

08-22-2008, 12:54 PM
the first choice for sure

08-22-2008, 01:36 PM
USA- Gold
Spain- Silver
Bronze- Lithuania(because Nocioni and Manu being injured)

08-22-2008, 01:51 PM
just in case ya'll forgot...


08-22-2008, 02:00 PM
gold and silver are already decided, usa is just ... beastly

but i think that argentina will beat lithuania, but it depends on Emanuel David Ginobili

08-22-2008, 02:01 PM
will manu play at all ? or definetly done for the olympics

Tha Truth
08-22-2008, 02:15 PM
Gold - USA
Silver - Spain
Bronze - Argentina

However if Manu doesn't play Lithuania can get the Bronze.

08-22-2008, 02:16 PM
Who do you think is taking what?

I have a strong feeling that Spain was holding back when playing Team USA because they knew they would play them again. Team USA dominated them in that matchup the last game, but since that game really didn't matter, I wonder how Spain will come out this game.

08-22-2008, 02:49 PM
Gold - Usa , Silver - Spain, Bronze - Argentina

08-22-2008, 04:08 PM
USA / Spain / Argentina

Coincidence the first letter of each country spells out 'USA'?

08-22-2008, 11:03 PM
hehe that is kinda interesting -^

08-22-2008, 11:17 PM
lithuania will take bronze,spain silver and usa gold

08-22-2008, 11:21 PM
i think lithuania takes bronze.
too many injuries to argentina, and lithuania was playing great.
and tehy already beat argentina once when they were alot healthier.
could come down to who knocks some threes down tho.

08-22-2008, 11:23 PM
im going to say gold and silver are obvious 37 pt game the first one the one to watch is lith and arg. lithuania won the first one and im picking them here too.

08-22-2008, 11:30 PM
USA- Gold
Spain- Silver
Bronze- Lithuania(because Nocioni and Manu being injured)


08-22-2008, 11:32 PM
USA / Spain / Argentina

Coincidence the first letter of each country spells out 'USA'?


08-22-2008, 11:44 PM
Argentina will beat Lithuania because they will take the game with a more positive aproach, they just lost to usa and that is normal you can count it on your menu, Lithuania instead are angry and depressed because they think they were better than spain, so they wont be focussed.

As for the Final, with Calderon Out its almost Impossible that Usa does not Win, Come on Rubio is good but he is a 17 year old player starting on a Gold medal olympic game and has to care about the Runner up on Nbas Mvp......Enough Said.

I hope at least they take some pride after the 37 point trashing and are able to keep it interesting for a quarter or Two and end up bellow 20 points of difference.

08-23-2008, 03:07 AM
Wonder who voted spain as champion... was it you CLaw?...... no calderon and the Referees have been favouring Usa all the way trough the final.....

I guess Lithuania betas argetnina.

08-23-2008, 02:48 PM
lol it was probably someone being silly because they knew everyone would pick the more logical answer of USA winning gold.

08-23-2008, 02:56 PM
Lithuania plays extremely physical so Argentina will definitely lose, I really don't think Manu and Nocioni can take any more beatings.

08-23-2008, 03:07 PM
USA, Spain, Argentina. Lithuania has a chance tho.

08-23-2008, 03:16 PM

08-23-2008, 03:23 PM
will manu play at all ? or definetly done for the olympics

done. From what it looked like, it is the same ankle that was hurt. Sorry to tell you this, but I wouldn't be surprised if surgery is needed, which would mean 3-4 months before he sniffs the floor again.

08-23-2008, 03:41 PM
Gold: USA
Silver: Spain
Bronze: Lithuania

08-23-2008, 11:41 PM
I'll try to watch it live, even though I need to be awake at around 8:30

08-23-2008, 11:56 PM
Gold - Usa
Silver - Spain
Bronze - Lithuania

08-24-2008, 01:04 AM
tryin to make it but dont think i will. pretty beat. the way nbc has broadcast these Olympics is pathetic. i havent seen one game. theres so many more sports and all we see is volleyball, gymnastics, and swimming. dick Ebersol, good job.
who shows the basketball games at 230 and 10am? i understand people want to know results live but whos watching it then? pretty annoying. show it then fine, but at least replay the **** in primetime. is basketball not one of the biggest sports in the US? nah lets watch synchronized Swimming and field hockey, which btw looks like it belongs in the special olympics.

08-24-2008, 01:17 AM
^^^Yeah, I'm trying to make it too. I'm gonna have to wake up about 3 hours after the game would be over, but I don't want someone to tell me the score. I think the U.S. will win by 31.
