It couldn't be


Spain misses again the gold medal match barely. They lost again, against a version of the Dream Team that despite the lack of names they were far from decaffeinated: they needed to give the best of their own to win 107-100 and get the 14th medal in 17 Olympic Games.

Despite their solid fundamentals and perfect technique, it will be very difficult for Spain to get an affordable chance to win a medal or even a world championship in the near future. There are some reasons indeed. The team base who won the silver at Beijing (final lost by 107-118) and London (100-107) technically was superior to the Argentine team that won gold in Atenas. The causes were in part that the Dream Team didn't know how to play as a team. 12 individualities, but they didn't know hotw to play FIBA basketball: they learned thanks to Argentina woke up. And that's the main reason why now adays Team USA is the best attacking in static in the world.
