What Would USA Basketball's Under-23 Team Look Like?

There's been a lot of talk about the Olympic basketball competition adopting an under-23 rule (just like Olympic soccer). A lot of it is because NBA owners don't like the thought of their veteran players putting themselves at risk for another team (even if that team is Team USA). Another part of it is because, after playing 100-plus games in a season if they make the Finals, a lot of veteran players don't like feeling pressured to go out and play even more when they're worn out. And finally, there's the fact that the NBA is thinking about taking over the World Championships, and making it like soccer's World Cup. That tournament would have the best of the best, and they want a way for it to overshadow the Olympics.

That under-23 rule could be in place for 2016. But what if it were in place this year? It would mean no LeBron, Kobe, or even Durant for Team USA. (Remember, guys like Durant and Russell Westbrook and Kevin Love are 23 when the tournament starts, but if they follow soccer's rules anyone who turns 24 in the year of the tournament would be ineligible. And those three guys all turn 24 in 2012).

So THIS is what we think the 2012 USA Olympic basketball team would look like if it were under-23 only... More »

America's favorite little brother, Mario Chalmers, of the newly crowned champion Miami Heat stopped by SI Kids so we could get the inside scoop on the team's title run. Miami's Big Three may rag on him on the court from time to time, but he came up big in the Finals, helping the team beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games. Chalmers spoke with us about winning NBA and NCAA championships, his role on the team, how the Heat changed from last season to this one and the addition of Ray Allen.

SI Kids: The media and fans really scrutinized the Heat since LeBron and Bosh joined, do you guys try to block that out?
Mario Chalmers: Last year it was something we thought about, but this year all we thought about was Dallas, Game 6, and them walking off our home court knowing that we lost the championship.

SIK: How do you avoid seeing all the stuff written and said about you guys?
MC: During the playoffs this year I didn’t watch Sportscenter at all. Not one day. That was an easy way to stay away from it. More »
