Fox sports -- comes inside game is presented by city. I counting down days to the 2012 summer games on -- open to him by fox sports icons Billy witness who is talking hoops with us right now and let's start with the biggest threat to team USA because there's a lot of teams getting stronger internationally was the biggest threat to let. I think there's two threats and one is injuries and then and the others Spain. And I think the injuries as we've seen thus far and in an NBA season I mean they party lost Dwight Howard was there one legitimate. Senator. Post player and plus Derrick Rose is one of the best guards in the NBA's reigning NB and BP from last year. And LaMarcus Aldridge and I think. Injury concerns for coach Mike suggest he is is the big guys is that they're gonna have enough. Of them. You know make. Make it through the tournament. And where that's really gonna come into play I think is when he played Spain Spain's got this all Brothers mark who's improved tremendously in the last couple years along with how. And I think and -- very intriguing story in the Olympics is that they've gotten that Serge Ibaka who grew up in the Congo and migrated. -- emigrated to France and been to Spain and he's -- Spanish citizenship. So they're gonna basically have 37 foot you know guys are pretty close to seven feet. That they can throw it at at the United States that's going to be. And they're all very good players and so that's going to be -- and that's going to be a big challenge for the American I think. Pissed right now we may not have the size we know we have the star pop we have all the means with Kobe LeBron and -- Tell somebody who is a first time Olympian we have a few of those who is going to begin. Yeah I I really think Kevin Love is going to be a real X-Factor I think his game is. Extremely well suited international play were. The thing you see in international play is is that the big man can all shoot from the perimeter -- felt they'll pull. Don't pull their defenders out away his and and with the zone defense is you don't see a lot of interior work. And and you got to rebound and those are two things that Kevin Love probably does better than any other certainly any other big man that the that the US has so. I think he's gonna play and play a big role for him for the Americans went the other big names come calling Lenny Harris and familiar face you'd rather -- right now I'm right on this stuff quit Mike and Tony. The tenure with the Knicks did not -- well.
