|Team USA Roster Revealed For London Olympics|
The United States have finalised their roster for the upcoming Olympic Games, and there's no surprises here for the defending gold medalists. Despite the loss of three of the 'Redeem Team's' squad (Dwight Howard, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade), the US has fielded one of it's most complete lineups available to it and all members of this team consider themselves the team to beat according to Carmelo Anthony.
"We feel like we're definitely a great team. We have all the pieces that we need," Anthony said. "We've got to put it together, but we feel like we're the best team out there."
New faces to the Olympic roster include teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, Tyson Chandler and Kevin Love, although all of those players represented the US at the World Championships in Turkey in 2010. The roster was rounded out by additions Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala and James Harden over the weekend.
The Knicks Anthony vowed the new squad was keen to forge its own reputation in London.
"I think we have guys on the team that's definitely hungry at this point, especially young guys that want to go out and prove themselves," Anthony said. "They've been showing that over the last couple of days in practice. What we put together in '08, we will never duplicate that again. But this is a new team, this is a new situation and this team wants to form their own identity."
