Men’s Basketball Team is Named

The much discussed U.S. men’s basketball team was named today, and there are few surprises. Dwyane Wade will play despite the missing much of the NBA season with a back injury. Chris Paul and Jason Kidd are both on it, despite talk that Coach Krzyzewski was choosing between the two. I hope that Jason Kidd’s wife-smacking does not rub off on good guy Chris Paul. Kobe Bryant is on the team, but none of the world champion Celtics are.

The challenge that the U.S. team usually faces is not a lack of talent, but a lack of teamwork. The team will now participate in camps to start coming together for Beijing. If the U.S. wants to return to the gold medal stand, these millionaires are going to have to check their egos at the door.
