With injuries to most of the big men that were to be on Team USA, and the latest being that Clippers forward Blake Griffin; there has been talk that the lack of size will cause the United States trouble in their quest to repeat as Olympic champions in the upcoming London Games.
If you speak to anyone on Team USA they will say that their lack of height is not an issue:
"Really it's kind of boring to keep answering the question of what are you going to do with the bigs," U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski said Sunday. "Like, this is who we have. Why don't we talk about what we're going to do with what we have, than talk about what we don't have? I don't really understand how that's productive. So I'm trying to dismiss that and concentrate on what we're doing."
