    When the USA won slam -dunk - most gold medals - most overall medals - over the Soviets by slam-dunk margins

    Soviets won most of the other Olympics in total golds and medals




    May lose to the Chinese this year .....................................

    We are ahead of China now and there are more Golds coming our way with the US mens and womens basketball teams, I doubt China beats us in the medal count.

    Especially in hoops, Russia has a good team now but they would be even better if they could use the guys from Lithuania.
