Every single team would have done the same thing to avoid USA. Not to mention they had played a ridiculous five games in six nights. It just looked so obvious that they were trying to lose. Nathan Jawai (aka Outback Shaq) made the Angolan center look like Kevin Durant, but they kept him in the whole game.

Fuck, we were trashed by Serbia too, early plane home.
Well deserved though, Serbia played 100% concentrated and smart and very well read, both defensively and offensively, while we did our worse game, everything went wrong. Those two are not unrelated of course, one brings the other.
Spain was winning 20pts easily and still complaining at every call, ridiculous. Very very good team though, tactically, individually, bench depth, everything.

That was impressive!
USA's full court press is scary, so is the transition.

You gotta love how simplified, yet effective USAs game was. Was a real pleasure watching them.
Most impressive tournament win after the original dream team imho.

They aren't unbeatable but....it won't be easy. You have to remember that we invented this sport and on the whole we're still a few steps ahead of the rest of the world. Take a glance at the NBA, it's the pinnacle of basketball and while there are several foreign born players look how many are 'stars'. Now take that number...divide it across the rest of earth's countries and you have 1 or 2 all stars vs a team of all stars and future HOF'ers. It's easy to see why we are dominant in that regard.

The world is closing the gap it seems and pretty soon we won't be able to send 'b' level stars and waltz our way to a gold.

Yup, well said!
Krzyzewski himself was asked if they were unbeatable during the tournament and his reply was "no way".
Incidentally, one of the audience in that press conference was Panagiotis Giannakis, the coach of the Greek team that was the last one to win USA, back in the 2006 world cup semi-finals and Krzyzewski mentioned that too.

Bball was actually invented by a Canadian. Funny how many people don't know that.
