Anthony Davis Gets in the Book, Helps Team USA Win Gold

Anthony Davis has had a great year, and finishes it with a golden flourish along with his Olympic teammates.

In a very tight game with Spain, the United States Olympic men's basketball team wins the gold medal, 107-100. Near the end of the game, former Kentucky star Anthony Davis got in the game, had a foul and the final rebound of the game to get into the record books for the gold medal game. Kentucky coach John Calipari tweeted:

And this one:

In what has to be one of the great years ever for a basketball player at any level, Davis won the NCAA Tournament title with Kentucky, multiple Player of the Year awards, was the #1 draft pick in the NBA, and now has the rarest of rare honors -- a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympic games.

I don't think that there really are words for the kind of year that Davis and the Big Blue Nation have had. This is just the cherry on top of one of the greatest years of basketball in the history of Kentucky.

Of course, nothing will top the 1948 team, which not only won the NCAA Tournament, but also won the Olympic gold medal, and in a fitting bit of irony, that happened in London, also.

Congratulations to Davis and the entire US team for a great victory, and more US basketball history.
