Yes, I enjoyed it so much watching it on TV. Everyone was celebrating it here, at least in Madrid.

Jorge Garbajosa and Juan Carlos Navarro scored a lot of points, also Gasol's brother had a good performance. Too bad that Pau Gasol was injured and couldn't play this last game. He was the best player of the Spanish team in the championship.

Congratulations!!!!

That would explain all the Spaniards gathered round the TV in the IB Business Lounge at MAD whooping up a storm on Friday.

Congratulations too from Mallorca, Spain!

I don't know the reasons why the USA team left Japan yesterday.. I'd be ashamed if I were USA citizen. If they lose, nobody cares about the championship. I've checked the Washington newspaper and USAtoday webpages.... hard to find a remark about the final...
