Kobe Bryant confirmed that he will once again be joining U.S. Basketball's Olympic squad heading to London in 2012. He made the announcement Tuesday on Olympic coach Mike Krzyzewski's SIRIUS XM radion station. From the NBA's Fanhouse blog:
"You guys want me there, I am there and I'm ready to defend," Bryant said. "And then when you guys need me to put some points on the board I'll do that, too."
