These summer Olympic Games have been an exciting one. We’ve seen Michael Phelps breaking records, Simone Biles making history, and Usain Bolt continuing to be perfect on the track. But let’s talk about basketball for a second. Our US men’s basketball team is missing some of our better players that we expected to play. This has already shown as we passed Australia, Serbia, and France. How can we bring home the gold without LeBron James, Stephen Curry, and Anthony Davis? Have no fear, our lineup is still stacked with talent, and that includes on and off the court.
1. At first look you will see that there are still some big names on the roster. Does Kevin Durant sound familiar? Durant, the newest member and now brightest star of the Golden State Warriors is returning with another veteran: 2 time Olympic star Carmelo Anthony! Both of which have a list of accolades.
2. The newbies on the team have some serious talent! Klay Thompson, one of the Splash Brothers, has shown to be a force to be reckoned with on his own. Hearing that Stephen Curry wasn’t going to play was a huge disappointment. But knowing that point guard Kyrie Irving was going to play negated those feelings. A couple of other stars to keep an eye out for are Jimmy Butler, DeMarcus Cousins, and Paul George. Each of them has shown to be tremendous athletes on the big stage when needed.
3. Let’s talk about our head coach, Mike Krzyzewski. He has been coaching the USA basketball team since 1979. By now he has an impressive portfolio of achievements. Under his coaching we have won 10 gold medals, 2 silver medals, and 2 bronze medals. He also has an impressive resume during the regular basketball season.
These stats don't lie and are pretty convincing. We have the gold already at our finger tips but if you need any more convincing I have good news for you. The USA won against Argentina 105-78. This is the same team that beat us in 2004. The future looks to bright folks. Have faith and know that we are taking home the gold.
