Default Re: Team USA Basketball

Amongst the biggest names (Kobe, Wade, Melo and LBJ), I would probably call Kobe the only real Prima Donna.

James, in particular, has been known for trying to bring his teammates into the fold in NBA games. He is a superstar, but he seems like a genuine team guy. I haven't seen much of Wade lately (mostly due to his injury) but I had the same impression of him. Melo has always been a bit of an enigma, but I've always had the impression that he's a super-roleplayer as opposed to a super star.

Still, this team doesn't do nearly as well (and doesn't likely win the Gold) with most other coaches.
