In January, Team USA announced a roster of 20 finalists for the 2012 Olympic team. Following several injuries (Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge) and additions (Anthony Davis, James Harden), the list of finalists now sits at 18. Only 12 of those players will make the team, which will be finalized on July 7, five days before the team's first Olympic exhibition. SI.com presents the players vying for those 12 spots.


A five-time NBA All-Star, Anthony helped lead Team USA to a bronze medal in the 2004 Olympics and a gold at the '08 Games.
