Obama confident U.S. men's Olympic basketball team will win gold
Washington, July 17 (ANI): President Obama has said that the U.S. men's Olympic basketball team, led by Lebron James and Kobe Bryant, has "unbelievable talent" and they will "bring home the gold."
During an ESPN television interview at halftime of the U.S.-Brazil men's exhibition game at Verizon Center on Monday, Obama weighed on the great national debate: Who is better - the 1992 "Dream Team" or the current U.S. men's Olympic basketball squad?
Obama, who attended the men's and women's games with First Lady Michelle Obama, said that although he favours the '92 team that featured Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson, this year's group has "unbelievable talent."
"There's no reason we shouldn't bring home the gold," the Washington Post quoted Obama as saying.
Bryant, he added, "is such a competitor so we can expect him to do a little trash talking."
The Olympics start later this month in London.
Obama also noted that he spoke with the U.S. women's team and added that they will be "as dominant, if not more dominant" than the men. (ANI)
