Hello deanwoodward,

I was inside the hall. All of the game I was rooting for USA, which means I was not in the majority. In fact I was rooting for USA although if you had asked me 20 days ago I would have told you that I'd prefer the NBA circus to lose for the sake of the game (their behaviours are often beyond the limit & they'd need a lesson). I just did not like much the way they were getting hammered in USA for their recent appearances, so I overcome my natural preference for Spain and I was rooting for USA.
After this time out & unless someone explains the rational behind the time out 20 seconds from end with 10 points ahead and the opponent having thrown the towel, I hope USA does not arrive at any medal. Not only it was the lowest form of class but it was against a team that could easily lose the game against New Zealand and "pick" opponent (disqualifying the Serbs at same time) instead they showed true sportmanship and played a clean game even when they knew it would offer them USA as a "gift".
Congratulations to the 5 fellows who voted "He is a whiner, trying to cover up for the fact that he was outcoached". It takes great coaching skill to have Marbury scoring his 3pointers.
