U.S. Feeling Right At Home In London!

LONDON – Carmelo Anthony is one of many athletes wearing a U.S. uniform in this Olympics who finds London to his liking.

After participating in the Olympics in both Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008, he is finding the adjustment to this city much different from either of those previous locales.

Anthony has had distinct experiences each and every time as one of just three players in history, along with LeBron James and David Robinson, to play on three different Olympic teams.

“That’s a very proud moment for me,” Anthony said. “I’ve been on three different teams. In 2004 where USA Basketball was just trash and we were at the bottom and everybody was saying that the rest of the world was better than us. Then in 2008 when we came back and redeemed ourselves and put together one of the best teams ever and won a gold medal. And even now, to combine two teams that has some of the guys from the 2010 World Championship team with some of the guys from [2008], it’s just that much better.”

Even better this time around for Anthony is the comfort level off the court, in an English-speaking country that reminds Anthony of his normal surroundings.

“We talked about it, it’s a different vibe over here,” Anthony said. “We feel right at home. It’s a lot like New York. You’re out and it’s so diverse. You have so many different people and all of the different languages, but the main language is English and we can dine out and talk with different people and still feel the comfort of home at the same time. And we’re only six hours from New York so we’re really just right across the water.”

    <<>>USA won’t lose a game in the 2012 Olympics <<>>
    the fact that they are all playing well TOGETHER and not letting ego get in the way,
    combined with the natural talent on that team : NBA MVP x 2 ~ NBA highest scorer x2 ~ NBA #1 Draft pick on the bench etc. etc. will get them the gold!
    And in response to the Espana fan..
    Good luck with that :-D

  4. USA will beat Spain 100% of the time because we’re lethal on transition and we’re way more athletic.USA!

  5. Jay says:

    USA will kick Spain off the court and I will be there to see it USA USA usa

  6. ESPANA WILL BEAT USA! says:

    Lebron James does not know what he says. Espana will destroy you. Espana did not have Marc Gasol when they played you in exhibition game.

    Team USA cannot hit 3 pointers. Team USA get foul trouble early against ESPANA. You will see. Even with no Rick Rubio (the BEST POINT GUARD on PLANET EARTH) Espana will beat your weak Team USA. No more talk of TEAM USA more better than DREAM TEAM. Espana crush your dreams, crush TEam USA, and crus USA basketball FOREVER!

    VIVA ESPANA!

    Champions of Olympic Basketball 2012!!!!
