The men's basketball roster for Team USA is set, and the latest incarnation of the Dream Team is ready to go for the gold in London. The squad is missing some big names -- two-thirds of the Miami Heat's Big Three and Dwight Howard, to be specific -- but it's rounded out with guys like Blake Griffin and James Harden. Coach K thinks this squad could be better than 2008's team, but will it also win the gold?
Wade or Howard?
Neither Dwyane Wade nor Dwight Howard will be able to attend this year's Olympics due to health concerns.
Many pundits thought Anthony Davis would be a good addition to the squad, but he and others were left off in the end.
2008 or 2012?
2008: Anthony, Boozer, Bosh, Bryant, Howard, James, Kidd, Paul, Prince, Redd, Wade, Williams
2012: Anthony, Bryant, Chandler, Durant, Griffin, Harden, Iguodala, James, Love, Paul, Westbrook, Williams
