CHICAGO (AP) -- LeBron James will get another shot at Olympic
gold, and this time, he'll have reigning MVP Kobe Bryant with him. The two NBA superstars were part of the U.S. men's basketball that was announced Monday for the Beijing Games. The U.S. finished third at the Athens Games four years ago.
Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Jason Kidd were among the 12
players placed on the squad. Completing the team were Tayshaun
Prince, Carlos Boozer, Chris Bosh, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul,
Michael Redd and Deron Williams. The team was selected without a tryout. It will have a minicamp this week in Las Vegas and gather there again July 20-25.
