A new Dream Team?

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

Team U.S. is starting to really look like their counterparts of old. This year’s incarnation featuring a starting five of Lebron, Kobe, ‘Melo, Kidd and Dwight Howard have looked simply unstoppable. Thorugh the first round of the tournament, they’ve utterly destroyed their competition. Yesterday, they wrapped up the opening round with another blow out win, this time against their second-place group-mate Brazil. Granted, their competition in this tournament isn’t exactly top judging from the entries put forth by the likes of the Virgin Islands, Venezuela and a Canadian team that is being forced to play without three of their best players. To give you an idea of how bad Canada’s prospects are, one of those three “top players” I just mentioned is the coach’s son, Andy Rautins.

While, without a doubt it seems, the U.S. will advance to the Olympics next year in Beijing, the might want to start working out against some better teams before getting their hopes too high up.
