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.
