If he can do this on Team USA, he should be able to do it on the Lakers and lead them like he did with that team.
Lebron and Wade carried the team. Kobe who was supposed to be their defensive stopper couldn't slow down Navarro or Fernandez in the gold medal game. If they hadn't gotten themsleves in such a big hole to start the game Spain could have won.
