I woke up at 9 am this morning to watch the Men's Basketball Preliminary between China and the USA. It's the earliest I've ever been up on a Sunday morning in a long, long time, but I had to watch this game. This is billed as the most-viewed game ever in organized sports - easily a billion plus.
It was a great game - I thought China showed a lot of heart. No one expected them to win, but they kept it respectable in the first half, until their lack of depth caught up with them. Team China should be proud, they played well, showed passion, and has come a long way. The goal for this Olympics should be trying to get into a medals game. They're developing some good looking players. I really liked Sun Yue - he's a 6'9'' guard with good shooting range and good ball-handling skills. Just signed with LA Lakers. Things are looking up, great job Team China!
