Source: ‘Griffin is in’ for Team USA

Some Team USA observers would list 10 locks, but I’ve moved Chris Bosh into the next grouping, even after hearing (Mike) Krzyzewski rave (see Box 6) about the defensive presence that Bosh delivered in Beijing at the last Olympics.
My reasoning: One source clued into USA Basketball’s thinking told me this week that Blake Griffin is closer to lock status than Bosh. The source insisted: “Griffin is in.”
And yet another keen observer of Team USA matters insists that LaMarcus Aldridge, because his shooting ability, will end up appealing to the coaches even more than Blake.
