Carmelo Anthony should be the hands down, no questions asked, MVP of this tournament. He led the USA in points per game with 19.9, tied with Chris Paul for the most steals with 17 total, and shot 44% from three point territory. He never took a game off and without his record setting performance against Italy. Who knows what might have happened.
This consolation game was highlighted by Dwayne Wade scoring 32 points in 35 minutes, but it was merely for show because I doubt many were watching. I am excited to have the regular season about a month and a half away. It is the only thing that is going to make me forget this disappointing finish.
