Team USA, Melo Beat Turkey
In Team USA's first exhibition game in China, they defeated Turkey 114-82. Lebron James led the team with 20 points going 8 for 9 from the field with 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Former Orange Carmelo Anthony added 17 points as he went 5-6 from field goal range, 2-3 from the three point line and one rebound and assist. I know this team is determined to win the gold medal this time around and though I may not be a huge fan of the NBA or the Olympics anymore, I wish them the best of luck and not just because of Melo and Coach Boeheim are part of the team, though that helps. The Olympics start officially on August 8th in communist China, which is a rant for another time, but it looks like this team may be ready to go.
