    One thought to “Knicks Morning News (2016.08.22)”

    1. To follow on from the celebratory thread, it’s good to see the standard of competition at FIBA/Olympic level take a big leap. I know the US fielded probably a ‘reserves’ team so to speak, but good to see there are a few teams in the mix now that can really contend. I am still a bit shitty about Australia’s loss to Spain in the Bronze medal match (don’t want to say a dubious call cost us the game……..but a dubious call cost us the game), but definitely a very good tournament to watch as opposed to other years when the difference between the US and Spain (and maybe Argentina) was pretty huge.

      Also, really happy to see Carmelo get another Gold. This has been a big off-season for him and I think he has won over a lot of fans, and not just for his play. Getting very keen for camp to start now.
