Teams: Spain, Australia, China, Brazil, Great Britain, Qualified 3
Best Finish: Silver (1984, 2008)
Key Players: Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Juan Carlos Navarro, José Calderon, Serge Ibaka
Team Analysis: This is another team loaded with NBA talent and probably the biggest threat to defeat team U.S.A. in this tournament. They definitely have the best set of bigs in the tournament with the Gasol brothers as well as the recently added Serge Ibaka.
Their biggest issue versus the Americans will be whether their guards are athletic enough to defend the quicker and more powerful U.S.A. guards for an entire game. If they can, expect Spain to take home their first gold this year.
Best Finish: 4 (1988, 1996, 2000)
Key Players: Andrew Bogut (Injured), Patty Mills, Aleksandar Maric
Team Analysis: The Australian team took a big hit when it was announced that Andrew Bogut would need surgery on his ankle and would miss the upcoming Olympics.
That leaves them with only one player on their roster currently in the NBA, Patty Mills. In the qualifying, Mills took 25 three-pointers in just three games, so expect a lot of outside shooting from this team throughout the tournament.
Best Finish: 8 (1996, 2004, 2008)
Key Players: Yi Jianlian, Wang Zhizhi
Team Analysis: The last time China played in the Olympics without 7'6" Yao Ming was back in 1996. Now the team is led by current Dallas Mavericks forward Yi and former NBA player Zhizhi Wang.
With NBA talent on the roster every year, it's very surprising to see that China has never made it to the medal rounds before.
Best Finish: Bronze (1948, 1960, 1964)
Key Players: Leandro Barbosa, Nene, Anderson Varejao, Tiago Splitter
Team Analysis: Brazil qualified for their first Olympics this year since 1996.
Like Spain, Brazil is another team who has some great NBA talent at their power forward and center position.
However, Leandro Barbosa has been the team's leader and primary scorer since 2005. His career average with Brazil is 15.3 points per game and he will be looking to build on that in his first Olympics appearance.
Best Finish: 20 (1948)
Key Players: Luol Deng, Eric Boateng, Joel Freeland
Team Analysis: Unlike any other team, Great Britain actually has multiple players on their roster who are currently playing in the NCAA and NBDL.
None of them are at power-conference schools, but they still have to be pretty talented to play college ball in the United States. We will see if it will be enough for team leader Luol Deng to work with in the team's first Olympics appearance in over 60 years.
