The British basketball team takes on the United States
One of the teams likely to get the largest following during the Olympic Games is the USA Men's basketball team for the show they put on at every match. The star-studded team, which can boast champions such as the likes of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James have been completing their pre-Olympic preparation with a series of test matches and this evening they will take on the host team, Great Britain, in Manchester. The game against the United States will give Great Britain a chance to test their actual potential before taking on the challenging Olympic round against Russia, Brazil, Australia and China. The USA, the big favorites for winning the gold medal, were entered in the same round as France, Argentina, Tunisia, Lithuania and Nigeria.
