The grin didn't leave Chris Bosh's face. "Personally," said Bosh, the Toronto Raptors star, "this is as big as you can get. This only comes once every four years. Now I can join that elite class of gold medallists." The U.S. has been waiting eight years to call itself the best at basketball once again at the Olympic Games. Bosh has been waiting a lifetime to call himself a champion. U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski has been raving about Bosh's play, his versatility, and his attitude since the Olympics began. And it showed with him getting more playing time than U.S. starting centre Dwight Howard. Bosh played 23 minutes yesterday, Howard played 17:23.

Congrats to CB4 and Team USA! :clap: It wasn't really that close, and a lot of credit has to go to Coach K and Jerry Colangelo for getting all these superstars to buy in to team play. Glad to see Bosh play a central role! :clap: And I thought it was great when the whole team put their medals around the coaches neck. The sport just grew bigger ...
