Will the USA Men’s Basketball Team Win Gold?

Earlier today, the roster was announced for the USA Olympic Basketball team.  It consists of 5 fowards, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Love, Kevin Durant, Lebron James, Blake Griffin, 6 guards, Kobe Bryant, Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook, Andre Iguodala, Chris Paul, James Harden and 1 center, Tyson Chandler. As you can see, this roster contains a very high caliber of talent. All of these players are in fact, allstars. The team also has a very great coaching staff which will be led by Duke coach, Mike Krzyzewski, who has led the US to championships before. When you combine an allstar team with a fantastic coaching staff it should mean a gold medal, and thats exactly what I am expecting. It seems to me that there is no country that can match up with the athleticism of the players on the US team. The players are stronger, faster, and simply just better basketball players. I am predicting the US to blow out all of their opponents just like the Dream Team did in 1992. I feel the only way the team doesn’t bring home the gold is if they get sloppy, and I certainly don’t see that happening….
