The “B” Team wins the Gold medal as U.S. wins world basketball championship

When the United States basketball team headed overseas to play in the world basketball championships, everybody called them the “B” team because Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, et al. were not participating. Most media outlets were saying that they would be done after a handful of games.
