It really does all come down to this. You don't get a chance to say that too often, but it certainly applies in this one. Win? Take the gold. Lose? (Sing it, KD: You got the silver.)
From there, the drama does really have to be kept in check. Team USA is about a week removed from demolishing Spain by 37 points. Thirty-seven. Worse for the 2006 World Champions is the fact that all-world point man Jose Calderon sitting this one out. Bum thigh. Bum timing.
But we'll be around, the BDL crew plus our comrades-in-arms: Tas from The Basketball Jones, Matt from Hardwood Paroxysm, and Trey from The Blowtorch. Send in a comment or 12. Nobody's going to make fun of you for watching basketball at 2:30 am, at least not in our own green world. This is a necessary appointment.
