USA Basketball has Fashionably Late Olympic Arrival

Posted: Updated:

LONDON (AP) - The U.S. men's Olympic basketball team is favored to win again, and some think it's a matter of the players just showing up.

If that's the case, they could be in real trouble.

Showing up anywhere has been difficult for the Americans, whose traveling woes have nothing to do with a call by the referee.

Friday they arrived nearly 20 minutes after the scheduled start

of their opening press conference after their bus took a wrong turn

into Olympic park.

U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski jokes he wants his team to be as

consistent with its shooting as the team's bus drivers have been

with their loss of direction.

The US plays Sunday against France, a medal contender led by San

Antonio's Tony Parker that features six NBA players, trailing only

the U.S. for most in the field.
