Carmelo’s 2008 Olympics are Golden


August 25th, 2008 by aswitzer

The memories of a dissappointing bronze medal in 2004, and a rough start to the 2008 Olympics can all be washed away as Carmelo shared in the satisfying gold medal earned early Sunday morning in the 118-107 victory over Spain. Dwayne Wayned led the way with 27 points, while Carmelo put in 13 points on 5-11 shooting. Carmelo often had to defend much larger Spanish players in the gold medal match as Howard and James found themselves in foul trouble.

Melo’s other boxscores, from most recent to oldest:
