United States: LeBron James
Even though he hasn't completely dominated at London, LeBron James has proven that he's easily the best player in the world.
He hasn't needed to score in high volume, but has shown absolutely no hesitance to take over the game offensively when the score is tight and the time is winding down.
Instead, LeBron has served as a facilitator and has made a number of otherworldly passes. He scores when he needs to, passes the rest of the time and plays elite defense throughout the game.
This is LeBron's team.
Australia: David Andersen
The 6'11" power forward is averaging 12.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, but will have his work cut out for him if he's expected to guard LeBron out on the perimeter.
David Andersen isn't a particularly great defender, and prefers to do most of his work on offense. His size and quickness allow him to get by, but Andersen has never shown much motivation or technique when it comes to the less glamorous side of the court.
Andersen can spread the court on offense, knocking down shots from the perimeter and showing off a few post moves in the paint. The big man has hit eight three-pointers in the Olympic competition through the group stage and must add to that total against Team USA.
