    Would You Start Durant Over LeBron In The 2012 Olympics?

    This topic will probably be the main focus as the 2012 Summer Olympics are basically right around the corner.


    Durant honestly looks like he can be great in any type of basketball, with basically 0 experience for Team USA hes putting up crazy numbers.

    good question, you might have to end up puttin either of them at PF or durant at SG


    The only thing Ill tell you, said Rose, is its gonna change one day and when it does its going to be scary.

    LeBron is the leader of the team and a playmaker. No way Durant starts over him.

    LeBron isn't a leader at all.

    They wanted to cut his *** 2 years ago, but had to keep him because of Nike.

    I agree that Lebron would likely start over Durant or at least be placed at power forward, but Lebron is not the leader of that team. Lebron's massive distractions and issues caused Team USA to come ridiculously close to kicking him off the team in 2007.

    no Lebron can play 1-4 and some point of the game he could play the 5...Durrant plays 2-4...What separating the two is lebron passing ability!

    I would start Lebron over him, but that's just what I'd do. He probably won't choose to play anyways.

    It really depends on who would help the team out more in 2012. You have to assume they'd just move Lebron up a spot, or move Durant down a spot. But if they had to choose, i'd say they go with the player with the jump shot. You do need a solid jumper under international rules..

    Either way though, Lebron would probably get the nod due to his longevity in international play and "expertise".

    You'd start both...
    Lebron and Durant would have both forward spots, with Dwight at center, Kobe will likely be at the 2, and pg will be interesting.

    Well I'd clearly choose Durant because of obvious reasons.

    But as everyone's already said, the solution is simple. You slide LeBron over to the four. Really not too much of a problem.

    Lebron is better so he should start. But even if he wasn't better, Lebron has to start. He would throw a hissy fit and quit if he didn't. He's too talented to let him walk off the roster, so you have to start Lebron. If you can put Durant or Lebron at PF, that's the best situation.
