Argentina's loss to Russia in basketball's bronze-medal game surely signals the end for the "Golden Generation."

Manu Ginobili, Luis Scola and Andres Nocioni were part of the team that brought Argentina gold in 2004 in Athens, upsetting the United States in the semifinals.

This wraps up a lackluster Olympics for the South Americans, who are already working to be better in Rio de Janeiro.

Argentine guard Pablo Prigioni kicked an electronic clock off the scorer's table at the end, reflecting the frustration of the loss — and perhaps the nation's disappointment.
