Mike Krzyzewski says his 2012 team has the 'potential' to be better than the 2008 squad.
When Derrick Rose tore his ACL in the first playoff game of the postseason on April 28 against the 76ers, it didn't just end his hopes at a championship this season -- it ended his dreams of winning an Olympic gold medal for Team USA as well.
In his strongest terms to date, USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said Wednesday that no new players will be considered for the roster for this summer's Olympics despite a flurry of injuries.
The U.S. added Blake Griffin of the Clippers and LaMarcus Aldridge of Portland on Monday to the 18 holdovers who hope to go for more basketball gold.
With training camp less than a year away and no guarantee of games before then, Jerry Colangelo is ready to start finding out who wants to play on the 2012 U.S. Olympic team.
