Seriously, your comment is completely off.

I enjoyed every medal won by Athletes that gave up 4 years of there lives to train, not just 38 #@#@#@#@ing days!

Not at all. Enjoy it! Gold is always nice

Congrats to you guys on an amazing Olympics. Most medals



I guess I just don't get making it out like it was an earth shattering sacrifice for spoiled brats. It's a touch much.

As an American, I am proud of them and what they accomplished. You can feel anyway you want to, though.

Someone is bitter about others being rich...

How about this? Instead of trolling here, why not practice your grammatical skills and come back with some semblance of intelligence...

Also, Coach K...what a class act. I have so much respect for him it's not even funny (and I'm not even a Duke fan).

Big time!

And here's something people should know....Coach K or any other coach does NOT get any medals.

What they do is literally a great service for team USA, unfortunately this was probably his last game as the Head Coach of team USA.

A great send off.

Why do the coaches not get medals? Pretty stupid.

Still think one of the coolest pictures from the 2008 Olympics is the players all draping their medals around his neck in appreciation of their coach.

Yeah, it sucks for them, I would love to see coach K get a gold medal for all he did.

It's the IOC rules

Tough spot for the Olympics. What coaches get them? All or just team sports? I mean, basically (or maybe every) every athlete there has a coach of some sort.

Who was this intended for?

I find it funny that americans put down other people for commenting but they go back on what they were rooting for as well. Look at the start of this thread and every other thread about the olympic basketball session this summer.

It starts off....

Redeem team sucks
to
Redeem team playing great
to
Redeem team killing other teams
to
Redeem team chucking 3s and playing no D
to
Redeem team sure fire to win
to
Redeem team might lose to Spain
to
Redeem team losing because of bad calls by refs
to
Redeem team playing well to winning a Gold Medal.

Thats step by step by you guys. They were favoured to win. They won Gold! Congrats. I think was Major League was saying is that this wasnt some unsung hero story whereby the cinderella team came out winning like some of you make it out to be. The US was favoured heavy to win and guess what .. They won!

So Congrats to the team!

I think that what upsets some of us is when people act like they didn't have to earn it - those types of people have probably never truly competed for anything before.

Make no mistake about it, the USA men's basketball team earned their gold metals today.
