Though they seemed shaky at the onset, Team USA with Carmelo Anthony at the head came through with a victory over Venezuela.

Amidst turnovers, fouls, and other shenanigans, our USA boys managed to whip Venezuela’s butt with a final score of 113-69. Melo even managed to surpass MJ’s all-time Olympic scoring record today. Wonder if he can pass David Robinson and LeBron against Australia on Wednesday.

Oh, did you know that Kobe Bryant’s cousin is a basketball pro as well? John Cox scored 19 points for his team…too bad it didn’t help them win. #IJS


And beyond everything, they are having a ball!!!
