I enjoyed the columns on USA Basketball that appeared in the Denver Post today.
The premise or question posed was: "Who should be the face of USA Basketball?" - Lebron or Kobe?
Last summer, the tri-captains of Carmelo Anthony, Lebron James and Dwayne Wade became the three-headed 'face' of USA Basketball. This year and next? It will be interesting to watch the dynamics of the team as they unfold. Thus far, the chemisty is excellent and everyone is making the extra pass and sharing the ball and the limelight.
The media coverage has been strong and will increase as the team readies for the Aug 22-Sept 2 FIBA Americas tournament.
