The final list of the U.S Olympic basketball team is made official today. That is a great team that should win the gold medal easily in Brazil. But don’t make the mistake of calling it a “dream team” or comparing it to the original dream team with players like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing etc. I think it is greedy for the U.S to continue fielding only professional basketball players with the intent of bullying everybody to the gold medal. We need to give chance to our college players because Olympics is supposed to be for amateur athletes. If we claim to be the world leader then the we should also set a good example in world competitive sports by keeping a level playing field. Stop fielding only professional basketball players but at least mix it up with college amateur players. If we claim to be the best in the sports of basketball we should be able to win the gold medal without professional athletes or even with only college players.
