Alright, just read an article on ESPN on who's locks and who's not for the Olympic Roster. If I had to choose a starting 5 right now it would be these 5
PG- Derrick Rose, people like to say Paul is a more true point guard which is fine but there is no denying that rose has taken the reigns of top dog in the pg class regardless of the past week. Paul would be next off the bench and would get more second half time when they go up 10 points or more.
SG- Kobe (but only if its a Kobe who is at 95% or more) Hes Kobe plain and simple, black mamba, killer, only person who compares to number 23. Tough to sit wade here because he is the more well rounded player, but like Rose with Paul once they get up in the second half give Wade the go and sit Kobe
SF- Lebron, best talent in the world and needs to be on the court. When the 4th quarter comes around he can disappear on the offensive side of the ball and no one will complain. Durant would be nice here given that he is a better shooter from 3 but Lebron is just too good.
PF- Probably the toughest position to choose because you can do so much here, could see some Lebron playing some 4 when they wanna get out and run, but to start i think K Love is your best option. All the 4's here can rebound but his shot is what sets him apart from the field.
C- Dwight Howard. No discussion needed here. Tyson backing him up.
So this is just my opinion on who I think would make the best starting 5, and can EASILY by changed based on match ups.
