Originally written August 13, 2012 on Project Spurs:
On Sunday, the United States won the Gold Medal on the final day of the 2012 London Olympics as the U.S. defeated Spain. Before that game, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili and Argentina fell to Russia for the Bronze medal, Ginobili and Co. would finish fourth in the Olympics.

After the game, Ginobili took to Twitter to discuss how he felt after the game. In the end, he said he was proud to be apart of the Argentinian National team. How sad I have! It hurts when you're so close! Too bad end like that, but as always, proud of this team. THANKS!  DeJuan Blair was up early on Sunday watching the Gold Medal game, immediately after the game ended, he was tweeting about the U.S. On Twitter, I asked Blair if he and Kawhi Leonard are prepared to defend the Gold in the Rio games in 2016. YESSIR RT @24writer: You and Kawhi ready to defend it in 2016? RT @DeJuan45: USA!!!!!!!!! Spurs guard Danny Green was also on Twitter Sunday and said it would be a dream come true if was presented with the opportunity to represent his country in the future. Would b a dream come tru RT@TarHeelMonthly:This summer DGreen said one of his big goals is playing for US team ... http://m.tmi.me/vedLi Apparently Spurs draftee Adam Hanga was also watching the Gold medal game, as he said that Spain gave it their best shot. Great game made ​​the Olympic final! The Spaniards in the tournament is now played all the best. And to close, Patty Mills told one Twitter follower that he will be returning to the U.S. and Texas in particular, very soon. “@LacyDavenport: @Patty_Mills when are you coming back to #texas ???? #gospursgo” I'll be back soon ;)
