From Foes to Friends: NBA Players Must Now Come Together For a Good Cause

Posted by

The NBA superstars have come together to become team USA for a cause now that the NBA playoffs are over. In the recent months, all the NBA teams were competing against each other to prove who will be the best team. Now that the competition is over, the players of these teams just shook hands with each other, work and train together to compete in Beijing this August.

The Summer Olympics only happens every 4 years and for me the most exciting part is the basketball tournament. I remember the 1992 Dream Team as they conquered the world of basketball. Players like Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing made up the Dream Team and tore the competition apart, winning the gold medal. Since then, basketball became a popular sport which made it difficult for team USA to win the gold in the last Olympics.

The NBA has so many popular athletes who did not come from the US. Stars like Pau Gasol and Yao MIngs were playing for their home country while team USA features some of their own team mates. How does NBA stars like Kobe Bryant feel playing alongside his opponents to defeat his teammate Pau Gasol? Will the NBA players adjust to turning their opponents into allies and teammates into opponents?

The final list for the 12 man line up of team USA is as follows: Lebron James, Carlos Boozer, Tayshaun Prince, Carmello Anthony, Dwight Howard, Jason Kidd, Chris Bosh, Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Deron Williams, Michael Redd, and Dwayne Wade.

The players come from various teams except for Carlos Boozer and Deron Williams. Almost all of them played in the NBA play offs of 2008.They should gather as one team with one goal which is to win the gold in Beijing. I think they could do it but they are not together as a team compared to the 1992 Dream Team.
