Tonight, in a blowout win against Nigeria, Carmelo Anthony set two olympic records. First, he set the single-game scoring record for United States basketball, with 37 points, and he also set the single-game three-point record with 10 threes. Previously, Stephon Marbury held both of these records, with 31 points and 6 threes.
Double Scribble has been doing some tremendous work. I put their Olympic illustration of Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler together into a wallpaper for your computer and/or iPhone!

Tonight, Jeremy Lin released a statement saying that he’s withdrawing from the 2012 Men’s Select Team.
Unfortunately, I am not going to be able toparticipate in the 2012 Men’s Select Team this summer. It was such an incredible honor to be selected, but I have withdrawn my name from the team because of my status as a free agent. I hope to have the opportunity to participate with USA Basketball at some point in the future.
