The final game of the basetball World Championship is beginning now. At least the coverage does. The game itself begins at 2:30, and you can watch it on ESPN3.com, assuming they didn’t decide to black out the USA because of broadcasting rights.
Coach Cal is excited for it, saying this over his twitter “NFL back in full force which I love, but gotta watch the FIBA World Championship’s title game with Team USA vs. Turkey. So proud of my ex-point guard, Derrick Rose for the way he has played & handled himself while representing our country. A thrill to see our guys accomplish their goals on the biggest stage in the world. Gonna be a hostile building, but DRose is used to that!”
Sadly, it looks like Rose may not get much playing time, as it appears he is getting the Rondo treatment from Coach K. Citing his lack of an outside shot, Mike Ksdfsdfyuere has opted to keep Rose primarily on the bench the past couple games. So expect him to show up to a UK Football game, too, sometime soon.
Here’s to cheering for the USA against the Axis of Evil that is Turkey and the basketball mobsters.
This one’s for you, Enes.
