Much to replace for US basketball team to top '08
US men's Olympic basketball team has much to replace to be better than 2008 gold medal squad
By The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) They lost Dwyane Wade but gained Kevin Durant. Dwight Howard's size has given way to Russell Westbrook's speed.

The Americans know their men's Olympic basketball team will look much different than the one that captured gold four years ago in Beijing. Some of the most important players from that team were unable to return, but the carryovers keep talking about being better now than they were then.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski says this team is more versatile and has the potential to be better if it learns to make the most of that trait. But in Wade, Chris Bosh and Howard, the Americans have lost their leading scorer, top rebounder and starting center.
