If the Team USA Men's national Team were to lose this is the game you should lose that would have no Direct Ramifications in only that the US Psyche might be dinged a little bit.
The Spaniards are ready and they are loaded especially up front and Team USA knows all too well what could happen on the Glass in this one. Spain boasts the Gasol Brothers with a hint of Air Congo as in Thunder Alley's Serge Ibaka. Then you throw in a host of Back Court Players that make their Home in the LOGO for 82 Games and the US has a Deep Cause for concern and it is real.
The US were hammered on the Glass vs the Argentinians and you think Spain didn't see that. Whoa for a Splash of Super Man of Mouse Town and Bosh Spice right about now with a Mojito of La Marcus Aldridge of the Rip City Blazers....yeah Last Call for a Team USA Big Man.
The Match-Up will go down Today July 24, 2012 in Madrid Spain at 430 PM ET on ESPN2 in the States.
Let's take a closer look at Team SPAIN sponsored by The Spaniards will Throw Rocks at the Throne so be ready for a good ole' Donny Brook from the Spaniards.

Yes I told you and all you LOGO Hoop Heads you are more than familiar with this Bunch. The Spaniards are coming in with the notion of Team USA has no BIGS that can handle Gasols, Ibaka, and other Spain Bigs.
Watch also for the Spain Guard Play as they are more than comfortable playing against the Team USA Back Court.
These are the 2 Teams that FIBA and Olympic Supporters are hoping to see in the GOLD MEDAL Round in London.
