The 2012 London Olympics are now over and Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden represent a quarter of the gold medal winning basketball team. Enjoy the moment fellas, it was quite a ride and we're thankful for having born witness to it.
This comment is actually a great question as well as insight to a position which we've long held here:
Are there two other players in the world whose games fit together as well as LeBron James and Kevin Durant? Both are long, athletic, highly skilled, unselfish and have extremely high basketball IQ's. They just get it. There is no debate when one or the other "has to take over", they just realize when the moment is upon them and play. LeBron becomes the slasher, KD spots up. It's just amazes me they can have this type of chemistry without playing together during the season. That was just pure joy to watch.
It is a funny thing when we're forced to put aside our team allegiances and watch the best American players come together to compete for the gold. Suddenly, it's not so bad rooting for Kobe. Wait a sec...
