There will be a distinct Kentucky flavor to the U.S. men’s basketball team taking the court for the Tokyo Olympics.

But even if the squad featuring former Wildcats Devin Booker, Bam Adebayo and Keldon Johnson wins the gold medal, this version of Team USA will not be UK’s most prominent appearance in the Olympics. That distinction belongs to the 1948 U.S. Olympic basketball team, which featured Kentucky’s entire starting five from its 1948 national championship squad.

I don't think they helped a lot during their game with France, which we blew. Kevin Durant is getting pretty old and he did just about nothing for us, fouled out and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. Several others are getting old too and I'm not sure they were the ones that should have been there. Hope they can make more of their shots in the next games or we might not even make the championship round. Very disappointing.
