Despite all this talk about LeBron and Kobe being the leaders, they have yet to show it in back-to-back games.
23 owned the 3rd Qtr against Turkey and KB24 took over against the Russians.
Still, the most important players on the team are the PGs.
If CP3 doesn't learn how to stop dribble penetration and Deron Will's teammates keep leaving him on an island against smaller, quicker players, these games will keep getting harder to stomach.
But my biggest concern is our total lack of interior defense and rebounding.
It is very alarming, especially without Chandler to erase mistakes like he did in Vegas last summer.
A one-legged Greg Oden would be more of a presence in that wacky lane than any of our alleged "bigs".
That said, when you've got a minimum of five guys who can go off for 25-30pts on any night (LBJ, KB, Melo, Wade, Redd), you have to feel pretty confident.
I believe Team USA will be challenged early and often (watch the first half foul discrepancy vs. China), I would still bet a pound of gold they will be standing on the top of the podium.

actually the most important player on the team is none other than dwight howard. without him the us would not be in the hunt for the gold.
