The American team will continue the reign of domination it has cultivated since the formation of the “Redeem Team” in 2008 in order to avenge its defeat at the 2004 Olympic Games in Greece.
The list is just too skilled and athletic to fail, even though they don’t have a tall stature in the paint.
The United States absolutely dominated their exhibition games as well as France in the first round. The only possible team left to give them adjustments in preliminary play is Argentina.
It is likely that they will face Spain in the gold medal match, which will be extremely close due to the presence of the Gasol brothers – Marc and Pau – and Serge Ibaka.
However, the athleticism and ability to score swingmen and guards on the American side will be too difficult for the Spaniards to overcome, and the American team will win their 14th gold in 17 Olympic appearances.
