Today, the roster for Team USA was officially announced. Led by Coach Mike Krzyzewski, these 12 men will be aiming for Gold (for the 3rd straight Olympics) later on this summer:

F Carmelo Anthony (NYK)

F Harrison Barnes (GSW)

G-F Jimmy Butler (CHI)

C DeMarcus Cousins (SAC)

G DeMar DeRozan (TOR)

F Kevin Durant (OKC)

F Paul George (IND)

F Draymond Green (GSW)

G Kyrie Irving (CLE)

C DeAndre Jordan (LAC)

G Kyle Lowry (TOR)

G Klay Thompson (GSW)


There you have it! Despite a lot of notable players missing out, there’s firepower throughout the roster. Establishing the pecking order, so to speak, shouldn’t be much of an issue for Coach K since there’s a great blend of experience & unselfishness.

But who will become a breakout star a la Kenneth Faried in the 2014 FIBA World Championship?
