Why do we even watch Team USA?

Blog Photo - Why USA Basketball Will Win Olympic GoldAnother reason to watch Team USA is because it's a unique chance to watch some of the greatest players in the world play together on the court. When it's all said and done, the starting lineup of Kobe, LeBron, and Durant will likely be rivaled by very few big-three's in the history of basketball. Carmelo Anthony, the NBA's most dynamic scorer, comes off the bench for this team. It's an unbelievable amount of talent wearing the same uniform out there, and everyone needs to embrace just how incredible these guys are together.

It is possible that things could go wrong for Team USA, especially in a tournament that includes three rounds of single elimination. However, there's no way that Team USA should be able to let things go wrong. If LeBron is having an off night, lean on Durant. If they're both having an off night, lean on Kobe. If the whole damn starting lineup is having an off night, lean on Melo and Love. It goes on and on.

No one should be able to come close to beating Team USA, and if they do, we've got the greatest closer since MJ in Kobe Bryant to finish them off.

Mark your calendars: at about noon on Sunday, August 12th, Team USA will prove to be the best basketball team in the world.

This NBA All Star team is one of the best arguments against professional athletes taking part in the Olympics.

It's not about individual stats as you focus on, it's about team play. These teams have played together a lot longer. The talent of team USA should be too much for those teams to overcome, but never dismiss how capable those teams are of beating team USA.
