Default Bosh Makes US Olympic Team

Chris Bosh will get a shot at Olympic gold.

The Toronto Raptors all-star forward was part of the U.S. men's basketball team that was announced Monday for the Beijing Games.

The U.S. finished third at the Athens Olympics four years ago.

NBA stars LeBron James and reigning MVP Kobe Bryant headline the U.S. squad. Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Jason Kidd were among the 12 players placed on the squad. Completing the team were Tayshaun Prince, Carlos Boozer, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul, Michael Redd and Deron Williams.

I know Raptors are big on letting guys play for their country and all, but this does increase risk for injury during the NBA regular season. I just wish he wouldn't play, but I understand...

Agreed, but on the flip side time with those players and coaches and the experience of playing in meaningfull games can only help with his development as a player.

I just hope that since he won't get to rest as much this off-season, that his knee will not get overworked and start swelling up next year like it did this year.

I just hope that Lebron and Carmelo play SO well in that frontcourt that Bosh never plays.

Why would you say that?? Bosh has a chance to represent his country in the Olympics. And your saying you don't want him to play?? That's foolish.

Good for him, but... ugh.

The last thing that team needs is for Bosh to take until the halfway point of the season to get healthy again.

I don't like it either.

All his problems with his legs started because he played for Team USA a few years back.

Raptors > Team USA for me. Same goes for when Calderon plays for Spain. I'd rather he didn't play at all. Just practice, get into the swing of things but don't risk injuries.
