Carmelo Anthony: A great scorer who can play inside or out, his versatility and ability to play power forward at times make him a lock.
Kobe Bryant: The 2008 team's leader and one of the most clutch players to ever play the game, he should be a starter.
Tyson Chandler: The only seven-footer on the roster, Chandler will see a lot of playing time inside.
Kevin Durant: The league's best scorer will look to prove that he can score no matter who defends him.
Blake Griffin: A lack of bigs makes the flashy Griffin a lock to play inside.
LeBron James: The MVP and best player in the world right now, LBJ looks to add a gold medal to his NBA championship in 2012.
Kevin Love: A complete player who can help the U.S. inside, Love should see a lot of minutes.
Chris Paul: The best true point guard in the league, Paul will have this team running the floor all game.
Russell Westbrook: Another incredibly fast point guard—Team USA's game will look more like track meets with him.
Deron Williams: After inking a big deal in Brooklyn, Williams looks to add a gold medal, too.
Bubble Players Who Should Make the Team
Rudy Gay: Team USA could use another slasher who might be able to play inside at times. He may not play much, but he will make the team.
Anthony Davis: I hate seeing college players in the Olympics, but Davis will make the team due to a lack of bigs. His thin frame will hold him back, but he will play nonetheless.
Bubble Players Who Should Be Cut
Eric Gordon: His injury will hold him back, and it will be better for him to focus on the upcoming season.
James Harden: While he won't make it this year, you can bet that the 22-year-old will make at least one Olympic team during his career.
Andre Iguodala: He's not unique, and he's not the best at what he does. He doesn't have anything to set him apart and make the team right now.
