Team USA, stock full of NBA superstars, taking on the world—where it has become clear that basketball is becoming a more globally recognized sport, as more and more NBA talent begins rearing its head on most national rosters.
And of course, Dwight Howard has clogged up the news cycle for the most exciting summer event for many fans. Is anyone really surprised? Howard has been in the news constantly for what feels like an eternity, begging his way out of Orlando.
For basketball fans like myself, it's frustrating to turn on ESPN and only hear about Dwight during the Olympics. But as a Bobcats fan, it's also very intriguing.
