If you don't grasp that, then you have a severe lack of general basketball knowledge.

Yes, the USA has much more depth than any other country. But you are completely fooling yourself if you think that 2010 Team USA would have sniffed a medal in 2012.

Team USA B team would have mopped the floor with any of those aforementioned teams even in a bad day and would annihilate those slow unathletic scrubs from Greece.
