    Miami Heat G Dwyane Wade to have knee surgery, miss 2012 Olympics
    http://espn.go.com/olympics/summer/2...ondon-olympics

    A big loss for the 2012 team after winning the gold medal in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China.

    Chris Bosh is also questionable for the 2012 Olympics too.

    Re: Summer Olympics Basketball Thread - London 2012

    With Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose and Chris Bosh injured, I think this will be the U.S. team that is going to London 2012.

    Starting Five
    C: Tyson Chandler
    PF: LeBron James
    SF: Kevin Durant
    SG: Kobe Bryant
    PG: Chris Paul

    Bench
    Backup C: Kevin Love
    Backup Fs: Anthony Davis, Blake Griffin, Carmelo Anthony
    Backup Gs: Deron Williams, Andre Iguodala and Russell Westbrook

    Tough choice between Iguodala, James Harden and Eric Gordon for me at guard behind Kobe, CP3, D-Will and Westbrook, but I like Iguodala's defense.

    As for forwards, Lamar Odom was a key player in the 2010 team, but he hasn't had a season to convince Jerry Colangelo and Coach K that he should be on the team.

    Rather take Aldridge over Griffin. His game translates to FIBA much better then Griffin, who has no post game, no jump shot and cant hit FT's.

    LaMarcus Aldridge will not compete Mike. Aldridge is injured.

    The only power forward I can see that can replace Blake Griffin is Josh Smith.

    But like Griffin, Smith can't shoot free throws.
