How sweet is it to have some of the greatest basketball players in the world playing against one another in the Summertime? Doubly great if it happens only once every four years. Brothers and Sisters, don’t pinch yourself — tune into the 2012 Summer Olympic Games from London, the next two weeks. The greatest basketball players in the States are balling against some of the greatest players from around the world, many of them current NBA stars, like France’s Tony Parker, Brasil’s Nene and Manu Ginobli from Argentina.
Matt & Mark give you the rundown of the basketball games from London, on a Special Edition of Nothing But Net, analyzing how the great players from around the globe stack up against a U.S. basketball squad that includes undoubtedly the best basketball player, currently, LeBron James, plus, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Kevin Love, Carmelo Anthony and a member of the UK National Men’s Basketball champions, and reigning college basketball player of the year, Anthony Davis. Plus, the man at the helm is Mike Krzyzewski, one of the greatest college basketball coaches of all time.
