So Mike Krzyzewski and Jerry Colangelo announced the final roster for the 2012 London Olympic games. As suspected, Eric Gordon, Rudy Gay, and NBA number one pick Anthony Davis were left off the final team, while Andre Iguodala, Blake Griffin, and James Harden made the team.

The Clips have two players on the American team, Griffin, and all star point guard (and 2008 participant) Chris Paul. You can read more about it from Marc Spears on ESPN or Yahoo... or probably a hundred other places.

The final roster:

Guards: Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook, Kobe Bryant, James Harden

Forwards: Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, Andre Iguodala

Center: Tyson Chandler
