Colangelo On The Olympic Team

The Olympics are now just around the corner, and with injuries to Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade, the margin of error is unquestionably thinner. The approach Coach K and Jerry Colangelo developed though is showing virtue, and the team can now build around LeBron James and Kevin Durant and a well-rested Kobe Bryant, among others. As Colangelo says, "I think this team will be a stronger team than we had in '08. If we do what we're capable of doing and we stay focused and have the mental toughness, then we should prevail. I believe that in my heart of hearts, but we have to go out and do it."
