Prediction

Team USA is going to continue their reign of dominance that they have cultivated since putting together the “Redeem Team” in 2008 in order to avenge their loss in the 2004 Olympics Games in Greece.

The roster is simply too skilled and athletic to fail, even if they do not have great size in the paint.

The U.S. has absolutely dominated their exhibition games as well as France in the opening round. The only possible team left to give them fits in preliminary play is Argentina.

It’s likely that they will meet up against Spain in the gold medal game, which will be extremely close due to the Gasol brothers—Marc and Pau—and Serge Ibaka’s presence.

However, the athleticism and sheer scoring ability of the swingmen and guards on the American side will be too much for the Spaniards to overcome, and Team USA will win their 14th gold medal in 17 Olympic appearances.
