Default Bosh: "I'm living my dream"

All I can say is that this medal was well deserved for CB4.

I was only 8 years old, but I thought it was so cool and I wanted to be just like them. I always watched the Olympics as a little kid and it amazes me that I'm at this point where I am now.

This has been the biggest accomplishment of my career so far. It's such a great feeling because we worked so hard for all of these years and it's paid off for us. We started this thing in 2006 with dreams of a Gold Medal in Beijing and now we're to that point. Time flies so fast and I'm definitely going to take in this moment. It seems like it was yesterday when we were at the World Championships getting a Bronze medal. Now we have something better and we can put that behind us.

I have to give Spain all of my respect because they played an amazing game. They shot the ball extremely well and played some great defense. They were just plain hard to stop to be honest with you. They moved the ball well and they were very aggressive on both ends of the court. This was not the same team that we played in pool play.

It was funny because before the game, a lot of media kept asking if we thought it was going to be an easy game against them. That tripped me out because we knew it wasn't just going to be an easy game. If you beat a team once, they'll have motivation to play you even harder the second time around. Not to mention this game was for the GOLD MEDAL! All in all, they played well and I think that was one of the greatest International games in history.

Right after the game ended we went back to the locker room and changed into our outfits for the medal ceremony. We went up, got our medals, listened to the Star Spangled Banner while the raised the American flag to the ceiling (which was incredible) and then we had to go through media. All of that plus celebrating takes up a lot of energy, but it felt good though.

I'm living my dream and I'm very thankful to the man upstairs for this one. I'm about to go home and take some time off before I start back training for the season.

Bosh was great all Olympics. Hopefully he keeps up the tenacity on D when he comes back. He and Jermaine could be really good together!

Atta boy Chris. As much as I wanted Spain to win rather than USA I'm still proud, because its CB4.

And Gratz again to the American team
