Dream Team looks good as gold, but not without Controversy controversy

After winning their first three games by an average of 41 points, including a 21 point victory over the defending European Champion Russia, this year’s version of the “Dream Team” looks poised to take home the gold and regain respectability to the US. However it’s still three weeks before the medal ceremony and a lot can happen between now and then. Mental and physical fatigue that usually sets in at the end of a 36-day trip is still a factor that could come into play three weeks down the road. But for now, this version of Team USA appears to be morphing from a strong favorite to a prohibitive favorite as we count down the days until the Americans get to Beijing, where they'll open Olympic play Aug. 10 against Yao Ming and the Chinese national team. It has been smooth sailing thus far with the only bit of controversy coming from the fact that J Kidd did not see any action in the second half against Russia. Now the question is weather he is simply been beaten out by Chirs Paul and Deron Williams or was JK being rested? Well, if it was your club, and after CP3 destroyed Kidd in the NBA playoffs, who would you have start? To be honest this team is so good, I could start at point and we would still win by double digits.
