Bill Simmons from Grantland.com thinks Anthony Davis should be added to Team USA roster

Anthony Davis on the Olympic team? Yes please.

From Grantland.com…

No way Garnett turns them down. He’s too competitive and too good of a teammate. So there’s your 11th. As for our 12th guy, it’s such a glaringly obvious answer that, when I give you his name, you will shake your head and say, “Why didn’t I think of that???” I present to you the one and only logical choice for that 12th spot, something that we need to get done as soon as possible so I don’t have to spend my summer worrying about us blowing the Spain game …

(Hold on, I’m letting it sink in for you.)

… that’s right, we’re bringing in the Unibrow!

It’s the no-brainer of no-brainers! Anthony Davis just won an NCAA title. He protects the rim like nobody we’ve seen since a young Dikembe Mutombo. He’s the ultimate teammate, someone who can affect basketball games without taking a single shot. Unlike Bynum, we won’t have to worry about him screwing up team chemistry. He’ll be the ultimate happy-to-be-there young guy. He’ll even happily settle into that always-enjoyable role as the whipping boy rookie who has to carry everyone else’s bags and stuff. And by the way? We might actually need him! What am I missing? GIVE US THE ‘BROW! USA! USA! USA! USA!

I’ve always loved reading Bill Simmons, but now I love reading Bill Simmons.

Why don’t they just go ahead and add every former UK player in the NBA to the team, except Jamaal Magloire of course, he’s Canadian.
