How Will USA Basketball Look This Year?

I’d like to preface this post by letting everyone know that NBA TV will televise the live USA Basketball team selection on July 7, at 7 p.m est. By now everyone knows how directly or indirectly the NBA lockout has affected the way Team USA will look this summer. There will be no Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups, Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade, and now rookie Anthony Davis all due to injury or rehabilitation to a prior injury. Recently Lamar Odom dropped his name from consideration. The wear and tear that some of these athletes endured throughout the season and playoff runs increases the likelihood of replacements once all of the training and exhibition games begin. I am very excited for the London Olympics this year. Here are my predicitons for the 2012 Olympic National team:

PG:Chris Paul

SG:Kobe Bryant

SF:Kevin Durant

PF:Lebron James

C:Tyson Chandler

Reserves: Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, Andre Iguodala, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Love, and Blake Griffin
