How many CP3s will be Olympic bound?
The Olympic Games can’t have too many CP3s.
Or can they?
Watch my latest video commentary or read below:
USA Basketball has finally made the roster for the men’s Olympic team official.
Chris Paul’s a part, and rightfully so. The Hornet point guard will go to Beijing with Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James and Deron Williams. CP3 deserved to be part of that team.
But what about the other CP3 that is also beloved in our fair state?
Oklahoma center Courtney Paris is still among the possible candidates for the Olympic women’s basketball team. USA Basketball has already announced nine of the 12 players who will be on the team, and it expects to name the final three by the end of the month.
Will Paris make the cut?
It’s possible, but the odds don’t look great.
USA Basketball has already selected two centers — Lisa Leslie and Sylvia Fowles — and Tina Thompson is listed as a forward but can definitely play the post.
Leslie is an Olympic veteran, having been a member of three gold-medal-winning teams. Even though she’s almost 36 years old, she is still one of the best players in the women’s game.
