After leading Team USA to a gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics, Kobe Bryant wants to add more to his trophy case. A second gold finish is what the Black Mamba is after now and he will be putting on that red, white, and blue at the upcoming 2012 Olympic games in London.
Bryant is the first to commit to the team, and there will be more players to join him as the summer games near. But with the man that lead them to a top finish last time out already on the line-up, the rest will most definitely be signing up sooner than later. Jerry Colangelo, the head of USA Basketball, already said that others are starting to follow suit. “I haven’t even really started reaching out, and I’m feeling calls,” he said Friday. “They’re calling me. They’re calling me to say they’re playing.”
