US Olympic basketball team

I posted a question once on one forum where I asked which four players Coach K would eliminate from the team..I stated my opinion: Lamar Odom(the obvious one), Eric Gordon, Anthony Davis and Rudy Gay..Most of the members disagreed with me,saying that Davis will play instead of Harden,even Blake Griffin..I guess Coach K thought I was right so he isn’t taking those four players to London..

This team is the best team in the world,without any doubts..Even though Dwight Howard,Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose are missing, this team is full of NBA superstars and they are right now #1 favorites to take the gold at the Olympics in London..

Coach K had 10 secured spots in the team and had only two spots left and six players to choose from..Five actually if consider that Odom is the weakest link in this team..So Gordon,Gay,Harden, Davis and Iguodala had to work very hard in order to secure their spot ..Krzyzewski chose Harden and Iguodala over those three,which is totally expected since Kobe is the only true SG and Iguodala is one of the best defensive players in the NBA..

Harden and Iguodala will join 10 other players that were kind of safe from elimination: LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love, Deron Williams, Kobe Bryant, Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony..
