So the United States won the men's basketball gold, but the bigger story of the men's basketball tournament might be the impact that Spain is going to have on international basketball in the coming years.
Besides the Gasol brothers, the Spanish might have the back court for the next generation in Ricky Rubio (above) and Rudy Fernandez (below). Fernandez showed the world that he is not going to be taken lightly. During the final Fernandez threw it down over Dwight Howard. While Rubio has the skills to be a top over all draft pick in the NBA Draft.
So come London, Spain and the United States might be battling again for the Olympic gold medal.
