Blake Griffin Out, Anthony Davis In

Team USA receives yet another blow due to injury. After losing Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Lamar Odom and Chris Bosh due to various reasons, we have lost one more player. Blake Griffin will undergo surgery for a torn knee meniscus that he suffered in practice. Team USA certainly has the depth but the size is absent. Losing Blake also will bring down the significant amount of alley oops and other momentum changing plays on both ends of the floor. Anthony Davis is Blake’s replacement for now and is likely to be on the team once the official Olympic games begin. I was looking forward to see how Blake would elevate his game against the likes of Spain, Argentina, and Brazil. Blake wasn’t able to play back in the World Championships due to injury, and now you can add the 2012 Olympics to the list.
