It all ends here. The FIBA World Cup has reached its final stage. Team USA takes on a Serbian team featuring former NBA journeyman Nenad Krstic, as well as Bogdan Bogdanovic, whose rights are owned by the Phoenix Suns, and Miroslav Raduljica, recently waived by the Los Angeles Clippers.
If the USA can win by at least twenty points, they will become the first team in history to win every game of a FIBA tournament by twenty points or more. That includes the "Dream Team II," which featured Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton.
It's time to put up or shut up. Win or go home. Go for the gold. Additional generic sports cliche.
