And yes, I copied it from RGM because it was a great setup.

All USA games will be on NBC.

My question for the masses is, where can we find the other games? I'm looking forward to Greece/Spain on the 10th more than the US game, can I find it online anywhere?

Should be a great Basketball olympics

Apparently Chinas guard play in terms of ballhandling is even weaker than Lithuanias, so expect the US to press all game and if they do ever manage to feed Yao in the post for the Americans to hard double and rotate out. Hopefully Sun Yue and Yi step their games up because its hard to see Yao shooting more than 10 times in the game

If someone could cap and post the Spain/Greece game on the 10th I'll forever be in their debt.

Welcome to RF killabee.

Yeah, actual "live" games will not all be covered by NBC, but they will be taped and shown later on in the day I believe.
