Will the United States men's basketball team be able to win the gold medal at the Summer Olympics?
While the men's team has had a couple of poor games (they lost to Puerto Rico!), they still have more talent than any other country and are still considered the favorite. Because the United States has been such a world basketball powerhouse for so many years, it's considered a disappointment if they don't beat every other team in the world by 20 points. Other countries are developing stronger basketball programs and are gunning to beat the United States. This year's American basketball squad is young and hasn't had much time to play together like teams from other countries have.
Once Tim Duncan, Allen Iverson and Lebron James become more used to playing together, the rest of the world doesn't have a chance. They may have struggled early in the Olympic basketball tournament, but by the time the gold medal games comes around, the United States will be rolling on all cylinders and will repeat as Olympic champs.
