Update Final Score: USA 98 – 71 France
The French Men’s Basketball Olympics 2012 is regarded as one of the teams in Group A which is tough competition for everyone and the one in the top squads. Even though team France may not be as tough if we gauge and mark them from the point of view of team USA, yet you cannot underestimate the team.
The France team is definitely led by some of the best names and star players such as Tony Parker, Boris Diaw and Nicolas Batum. It has been predicted and been stated that in most case, they will be battling against the powerful team Argentina to gain Spot number 2, in Group A.
Sadly due to the left ankle injury player Joakim Noah has been kept of the game these years, yet again Vincent Collet’s boys will be one of the chief contenders for the medal and help team France n winning the spot. Just in case the eye injury of Tony Parker does not affect him much, then the team will have a good chance of being in good shape and a threat to many. He is definitely one of the most impressive and consistent player and the way he plays will definitely dictate the way the team will ultimately head towards.
Tony Parker is known to be one of the best guards of this game. If he applies his great tricks like the ones in last summers EuroBasket, in this years London Olympic game, the team may most probably taste success. Ultimately the win of the game will depend on the way the team pressurizes its opponents and plays defense.
Team United States was in fact amongst the very first teams to lift their names in the Olympic Men’s Basketball tournament 2012, and they did this by productively winning in Turley the prestigious the FIBA World Championship 2010.
They have been known as the ‘Dream Team’ and they have a list of favorites in the game with some very best star players. They have Kevin Durant who was regarded in the FIBA World Championship 20110 game as one of the most overriding and prevailing players. Also some very famous star names such as Chris Paul, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant and Deron Williams are the must watch players, who had already won quite a number of gold medals in the 2008 game.
But one of the greatest concerns for the team is definitely the size, most probably their lack thereof. There was a list of evergreen consistent and dominant players such as LaMarcus Aldridge, Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard and Chris Bosh, who have suffered serious injuries and hence wil not be able to participate in this years Basketball Olympics. Thus there are two reliable sources to depend upon who are Anthony Davis and Tyson Chandler the two centers positioned on the Olympic roster. Nevertheless there are still great chances of Krzyzewski winning the chances of becoming the very first American Basketball men player to again feel and repeat the Olympic champion this year, if all goes well.
