The New World Champions!

In the U S of A's early hours of the morning, 2:30 a.m. ET to be exact, the United States Men's basketball team took on Spain in the 2008 Beijing Olympics gold medal game. And yes, they won, 118-107!!!

Dwyane Wade scored a game-high 27 points, Dwight Howard was awesome under the hoop, and Kobe Bryant's late-game heroics (and 20 points) pushed Team USA to victory.

Now Kobe, a three-time NBA champion and this years league MVP, can add a gold medal to his basketball collection (and to his presents, as yesterday was his 30th Birthday. Happy belated KB!).

Here are my favorite photos (all of Kobe, of course):
