In this years version of the Dream Team, the United States has put together a strong contender for Olympic gold. This past week the final roster for Team U.S.A. was announced, and ever since the men have been playing exhibition games to show us what they’ve got.
The team consists of: LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin (replaced by Anthony Davis), Andre Iguodala, Kevin Love, and Tyson Chandler. Blake Griffin recently suffered an injury to his knee, which requires surgery and will cause him to miss the Olympics. Number one draft pick Anthony Davis will serve as his replacement.
