2006 Loss, Avenged

As predicted by your author and co-founder of LynchyRightNow.Com, the United States poured in 92 points in route to a 23-point drumming of Greece on Thursday morning. Not 7-foot tall centers, zone defense, or the Chinese air could stop the U.S. hoops team from avenging their 2006 World Championships loss to this Greek team.

Greece's Spanoulis got his 14 points but shot a dismal 0-5 from behind the arc. Dwayne Wade and Lebron combined for 30 points, and the duo Bosh and Bryant added 18 a piece. The US team had 13 more assists than their Greek counterparts (23-10) and dominated them defensively, led by Wade's 6 steals. The United States forced 25 turnovers and blocked seven Greek shots. A far cry from the team that couldn't get off the mat back in the 2006 FIBA World Championships.

Unfortunately it wasn't all aces for the newly improved U.S. Men's Olympic Hoops Team, they continued their poor three point shooting (7-20) but specialist Michael Redd was 1-2 in only 6 minutes played. I'm going out on a limb here, (half kidding) this team is winning Gold and I haven't been so confident saying something since I said John Kerry was going to be the President . . errrrrrrr GO USA!
