London Olympics 2012: Basketball's Final Pits Team USA Against Spain Live On NBC

The 2012 London Olympics have been beaten up (a little too much) for their occasionally tape-delay nature by a Twitter population that loves being angry, but as they wind down you can rest assured that the 2012 London Olympics men's basketball final is airing live on the NBC schedule—no weird BBC streaming proxy necessary. You'll have to miss the men's water polo bronze medal match, and at least part of the men's handball final, but I'd imagine you'll be able to manage that to watch LeBron James in hope that he dunks over some people.

Spain, of course, is no pushover—this could be Team USA's toughest challenge yet. Marc and Pau Gasol headline team Spain, but they've also got Serge Ibaka and Jose Calderon, along with a number of Euroball stars, among them Juan Carlos Navarro.

For more information on Team USA's comings and goings and the last day of the Olympics, check out the national's storystream, featuring live updates all through the game. And angry updates, you can bet, if Team USA isn't able to put the Spaniards away.
