Team USA 2012 London Games has been announced and consists of a healthy mix of veterans, rising stars, and all-around solid players. Some analysts believe that this team doesn’t have enough size to compete at the Olympic level since they only have one true center on the team: Tyson Chandler.

When comparing the 2008 Olympics team and this year’s team, Krzyzewski said, “Although we don’t have the center, that team didn’t have Durant or Westbrook. So it’s a different team and we’ll see if it becomes better, but it can be. It could be.”
Here then, is rolling out’s best of plays, and a few standout players from Team USA 2012.
Reigning defensive player of the year, Chandler can play the role of both offensive rebounder and can bring a reinforcing presence to the defense since he’s the only true center on the team.
