Miami Heat superstar LeBron James tweeted this pic of himself wearing his gold medal after Team USA defeated Spain 107-100 in final round play at the 2012 Olympics on Sunday. The win didn’t come easy for the world’s #1 team. They had to come from behind to secure the win against Pau Gasol and Spain’s best playmakers.
“We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. We didn’t want it easy,” LeBron James said. “A lot of teams have won gold easy. We didn’t want it that way. We’re a competitive team, and we love when it gets tight. That’s when our will and determination kind of shows. It was the same way in ’08.”
The United States won the gold race, taking home 46 of the precious metals.
