USA Dream Team Ready for Another Gold Performance – Doug’s Sports Rap
The Summer Olympics will open this weekend in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the USA Men's basketball team will go for their 4th consecutive gold medal performance.
The 2016 Dream Team will not feature many of the big names that help win the gold in 2012, including Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant and Stephen Curry.
The 2016 team will include two players from the 2012 USA team, Carmello Anthony and Kevin Durant.
Does this team have enough talent to win the gold a fourth straight time?
If Kyrie Irving, Demar DeRozan, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Paul George, DeAndre Jordan, DeMarcus Cousins, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry and Harrison Barnes have anything to say about it, then yes they most certainly do.
Most of you know I am an avid New York Knicks fan, so having Carmelo Anthony go for his 3rd Gold Medal will make him the most accomplished men's basketball player in the history of Team USA.
Team USA will begin the journey this Saturday when they'll take on China.
Team USA will also have matches with Venezuela, Australia, Serbia and France.
I think this team is extremely talented and will be watching the games and routing for our country.
