    Default Your Gold Medal Starting 5 for Team USA

    PG-Deron Williams:I'll go back to hating him at the end of Olympics, can shoot and pass, will be dominate at times

    SG- Durant: on oversized SG in International ball, will be our leading scorer


    SF- Lebron: The best in the world at his position


    PF- Melo: honestly no bias, I would also live w Love here, but w Dwight out, w need Melo's versitile scoring, Melo is more of a banger than Love plus has more FIBA experience

    C- Tyson: obvious, no Dwight makes him starter by default, of course this is a pretty darn good sencond option, he'll anchor the Defense....although a small lineup with Love here would be lethal on the offensive end


    Slight Hiccup

    Kobe and his ego is on the team....does Coach K (a long time friend of his) have Kobe come off the bench? Probably not

    So likely this is the starting 5

    Deron Williams
    Kobe
    Durant
    Lebron
    Tyson

    Which I view as a little less affective.

    Williams
    Kobe
    Lebron
    Anthony
    Chandler

    Kobe and Lebron gives them major defenders on the wings. Melo and Lebron did well starting at the 3-4 last time around, don't shake it up. KD is the 6th man with Paul, keeping the pedal to the metal.
