The USA team playing in the FIBA Americas tournament has been beating teams like it was just a preseason game or an expedition. They kept the trend alive by blowing out Canada 113-63. The 50 point win was led be Melo who had 25 points and 4 rebounds. He is putting his imprint on all these games and it's important for his confidence to keep it up. Kobe Bryant was great as always with 15 points and 2 rebounds. Because Melo, LeBron and Kobe on played an average of 19 minutes they didn't have big 30+ point games. One thing that really surprised me was how much Kobe improved his physique. I have put on two pictures of him as a sort of before and after. I expect team USA to go undefeated in the tournament and then concur Beijing in 08 for the gold!
