USA Basketball easily defeats China

They only had one practice under their belts, last night. But by the second quarter in tonight’s exhibition against China’s national team, our Olympic squad was flowing together extremely well. They beat China 100-62.

This marks the beginning of the USA team’s quest for a fifth consecutive gold medal.

Players say representing their country is worth everything.

Tomorrow morning the USA team scrimmages against the Japan National Team. Tomorrow evening, the Sparks and the Storm play a pre-season game. Which means that Candace Parker and Sue Bird will have long days.


  1. i went to the usa vs china game. it was great seeing all the best u.s. players on the court together.

    the best thing of the night was at the end of the game when cp was carrying laila, birdy walked over and took her from her mama, planted a big kiss on her cheek and then handed her back to cp. damn, it was so cute.:)


  2. Aww, thanks for sharing that, scully! I would have loved to have been there this evening. And I appreciate the love that the USA Basketball players have for each other.

    No doubt the reason Lailaa and Shelden are with Candace on this trip is because tomorrow is the little one's third birthday – and it also happens to be Mother's Day.
