USA vs. Spain basketball

The United States played Spain in basketball last night. It took me a while to figure out a way to watch it online. I was pleasantly surprised by the 37 point victory over the current "best team in the world." Spain played horribly, and this Ricky Rubio kid that everybody was claiming would surprise Americans looked completely out classed by Paul, who completely shut him down. The kid can't defend on ball at ALL. Paul and Williams just ran right past him whenever they wanted, it was actually kind of sad. He is, however, only 17 so i'm sure he has a very bright future ahead of him. But at the moment, why would anybody say he's "great"?
Anyway, it seems pretty obvious who the best team is at this point. The refs continually try to stop the USA team from doing well, but even their horrible officiating can't stop this team.
