    Kobe Bryant is leaning towards playing for team USA in 2010 and 2012.

    Thoughts? Good, bad? elaborate

    actually, can you elaborate on why this would be a bad thing? i know he "may" lose a step in 2 years, but he will still be unbelievable. he was the workhorse on defense for them, and i dont expect that to change even in two years.

    forgot Wade...
    Bryant will probably be coming off the bench and will be the "captain" in the team

    I wouldn't be suprised to see Kobe starting.

    JKidd was starting over CP3 and Deron in a few of those games.

    If Kobe is going to be the captain I could totally see him starting and finishing games.

    I doubt that...2010 is next summer--Bryant has a good chance to be coming off of Back-to-Back rings and Finals MVP's and will still be considered by some (if not most) to be the best in the game. He'll definitely be starting (either at SG or SF--he actually loves the SF role and it's an easy fit for him in international ball). I could definitely see either a lineup of:
    Paul
    Wade
    Kobe
    LeBron
    Howard
    6th-Melo

    OR

    Paul
    Kobe
    Melo
    LeBron
    Howard
    6th-Wade

    Nope.

    If anything, it would probably be:

    CP3
    Wade
    Kobe
    Lebron
    Dwight

    for the starting 5.

    I'm not a Lakers fan. But going on past history of who started (Captain JKidd over CP3 as most recent) USA Basketball has tended to start veterans over younger players at that position.

    I also agree with Kobe playing the 3.

    Stop baiting.

    K Thx Bye

    Kobe will be the Jason Kidd of the 2012 Olympics team.....Good idea if he still the same Kobe 3yrs from now. But, I don't want old people on the USA Team

    Here is how I think the team would be.

    I think Bryant will still be starting SG just like how Kidd was starting PG.

    C-Howard, Bosh
    PF-Carmelo, Griffin, Beasley*
    SF-Lebron, Durant
    SG-Bryant, Wade, Mayo*
    PG-Paul, Williams, Rose


    *Only room for 1 spot but I think Mayo will get it over Beasley though.

    Why are you guys fighting who is on the bench or not?

    It's already an honor to just be on the team. I don't think either one minds being 6th man.
