So last Olympics Team USA Basketball was the ‘Redeem Team,’ taking back the our title in basketball. So I guess this year they should be called the ‘Status Quo Team.’ All they have to do is go there and win like last time. That should be easy right? They have the best talent of the NBA(that’s not currently injured): LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul. Looking at the line-up it is a little troubling that there is only one center, Knicks’ Tyson Chandler. Chandler is great if he doesn’t run into foul trouble.
Team USA just added Thunder’s James Harden and his beard to the mix. Which is definitely a smart move in terms of defense. They also added another great defender 76er’s Andre Iguodala. They will be joining the rest of the team: Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love, Deron Williams, and Russell Westbrook.
It is a killer team if they can figure out how to play together. But I would still be watching out for Spain and France. Especially since Tony Parker is all good to play now for France.
