From the article, "It was more of a mental thing – more mental preparation for this season than physical - because we never stopped playing. It was great to watch what was going on, to practice against them (his "Redeem Team" teammates) and to learn a great deal."

Had it gone in, it would have been a six-point game at the half. A half in which the Americans had only two assists on 21 buckets and missed 10 of their 20 free throws and 10 of their 13 3-pointers while displaying virtually none of the ferocity that had carried them into the medal round on a wave of positive vibes. But the shot missed, and Chris Bosh corralled the rebound and made a quick outlet pass to Williams, who already had turned upcourt. "I looked up and saw I had time to get off a shot," Williams said. "When I caught it, it was about three seconds. I thought I could make it to the basket, a big man came up and I thought I could go by him and get to the basket, but he kept backing up, and I rose up for the 3." What was striking about the 3 was the way Williams kept his cool and was able to get his feet set right at the base of the 3-point arc. The form was perfect, and the shot was, too. "Usually a jump shot is better [than a runner]. That's the way you practice it," Williams said. The sequence amounted to somewhat of a six-point swing in the final six seconds, and the Americans had a 55-43 lead going into the locker room.

Or why the U.S. fans are already starting a "Car-los Boo-zer, Car-los Boo-zer" chant, calling for the closest thing this team has to a walk-on.

USA 89-61 After Three - D.C. Sports Bog While the Aussies are getting blown out, this is the chant that the US fans start. That's kind of sad.
