It is official, the US has announced their men’s basketball team for the 2008 Olympics. There are all big names on the list. Unfortunately Kobe Bryant is on it. This list also includes LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd, Tayshaun Prince, Carlos Boozer, Chris Bosh, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul, Michael Redd and Deron Williams. We will see how well this team can play together. I think they will put their egos aside but their arrogance will lead to a couple of losses.
The key to international basketball is the three point game. I think this team is a good team but it never comes close to the Dream Team. Many of us remember the Dream Team of the 1992 Olympics with Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Scottie Pippen, and the rest.
I believe the US team will struggle but will defenieatly win a medal.
